The cover of this book is brilliant, and I enjoyed the descriptive writing. However, to my mind it could have done with more editing. I found the missing words, and occasional confusing POV, distracting; which was a shame as the basic story was good.

5.0 out of 5 stars For anybody who loved playing the Ranger in D&D 11 Nov. 2015
By James B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you love Fantasy stories about Rangers, then this is the book for you! There’s plenty of camping, tracking, hiking, and evading pursuers in the woods. Throughout the first half of the book, you can practically smell the wood-smoke, feel the dew on your pillow, hear the footsteps on pine needles. It’s cool when the heroes’ traveling party uses scouts to stalk ahead, looking for trouble, or where hunting parties take hours or days to track each other down before a vicious fight.

And there’s plenty of troubles to be found here. Athson (the ‘Archer’ hero) and his band of supernatural allies (sorceress, dwarves, and other magical beings) face off against an assortment of strange creatures. Also a variety of challenging landscapes, some of which are cursed. There’s even some classic dungeon crawling in the ‘Troll-Neath,’ which is a phrase I love! I especially liked one action scene involving a bridge that reminded me of Indiana Jones, or the famous Balrog scene in LOTR. My only issue was trying to differentiate between the types of troll hordes that Athson fights. I have fond memories of the terms ‘Bugbear,’ ‘Kobold,’ ‘Goblin,’ and ‘Hobgoblin,’ but I have a hard time picturing what each one of these creatures would look like. On the other hand, some of the other fiends and spells that Athson faces are very chillingly described.

The author writes in a masterful, fluid style, and the pages just roll by. At the same time, I didn’t find myself annoyed or bored by any of the characters, which can be quite a feat (IMO) when it comes to Fantasy stories. A totally enjoyable experience! I look forward to seeing what happens next with these characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Enjoy Tolkien, You'll Enjoy This Novel 24 July 2016
By Over The Rainbow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Trolls, goblins, wizards, elves, giants, and dragons, oh my! The Bow of Destiny is a classic fantasy story full of fantastical creatures, magic, quests, and adventure...and just a smattering of romance. If you enjoy Tolkien, you'll enjoy this novel. That being said, this is only the first book in the series, so be prepared for some threads to be left hanging. If you're someone who wants to read the whole story in one go, you might want to wait for the series to be finished before starting this book. Overall, however, it was a fun read that moved fast enough to keep me engaged but had enough depth that I cared about the characters. Five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Saga 13 Jun. 2016
By Carol Marrs Phipps - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Bow of Destiny by P.H. Solomon is a well-written, thoroughly enjoyable epic fantasy tale appropriate for most age groups.

Generally, the story flows smoothly, though it seems to drag a bit from time-to-time, due in part perhaps to some lengthy descriptions. Nevertheless, the author’s description is excellent, and brings the setting and the characters to life.

The characters are believable and interesting. I would, however, have liked to know a bit more about the supporting characters, Gweld, the elf ranger, and the withling, Hastra. (What, exactly, is a withling, anyway?) Also, I would have enjoyed knowing more about the antagonists, Congren, the dark wizard and Magdronu, the elusive, and extremely powerful dragon. But, to be fair, perhaps the next book in this series will explore these fascinating characters more fully.

I enjoyed the interplay between Athson and Limbreth, as well as their burgeoning romance. I was pleased that Athson was able to respect, and even admire Limbreth’s strength and abilities, rather than being put off or intimidated by them.

I liked the reluctant hero plot and thought it well-done. However, I was quite ready for Athson to accept and embrace his destiny by book’s end.

I applaud the surprise ending. I did not see that coming at all, and it is certainly adds to my desire to read the next book in the series.

I do recommend this enchanting saga to readers of nearly all ages and look forward to the next book in Solomon’s Bow of Hart Saga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destiny can be,,, inconvenient, but is always unavoidable. 14 July 2016
By Victor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Without any spoilers, I can only say that the author was wise in his choices. The characters are multi-dimensional, yet true to the tone of the epic fantasy in progress. You will find yourself spending far too much time reading this one, and neglecting other things. But in the end you'll have had a ride in a world of magic, and more. The journey to.... but that's a spoiler, so all I'll say is that one can almost see the trail, and fear the Trolls.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read! 16 Oct. 2015
By CP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I’ve been waiting for this since reading the prequels, and it was well worth the wait.

The author kept enough of the story a mystery until the right time while maintaining an engrossing story full of description and heartfelt love and angst. One of the highlights for me was the way the story started off with Athson having some difficulty before gradually moving away from some of the elements. I would say more, but I don’t want to spoil it. Sorry.

The characters were well written and engaging to the point I felt for Athson and wanted him to tell off Hastra through most of the book. Lol. Even Athson’s growing relationship with Limbreth felt right and was a pleasant change from the usual “fall in love at first sight” that’s common in fantasy. Out of all of the characters, Corgren remains one of my favorites, but he was bumped down to second place by the giant Ralda. Ralda’s complexity added an element that was briefly touched on in a couple of scenes and I’m curious to see if his character branches off in his own book or series.

Overall, this has become one of my favorite fantasy books and I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.
