This is not one of those books.
I'm not a huge fantasy novel reader, and am wary of trilogies of books in general, as they feel like they are just marking time between significant moments. This book is not guilty of that sin; although when significant moments do arise you are very aware of them. Another review says the book starts off slow; I feel this is harsh, as far to many of these type of books pay mere lip-service to this part of the story.
There are a few typos in there, but not many, maybe 3 or 4 that I remember. which is pretty good for a kindle book, especially at this price!
Definitely a gem!
I'm on the second book now, and so far so good!
Besides some additional editing to get rid of occasional grammar mistakes, the book could probably benefit from time stamps for individual chapters and a map. The story often skips hours, days, weeks and even months without clear indication. Only in retrospect, it becomes apparent that the characters don't constantly fall/jump from one action sequence to another, but undergo personal development over extended periods of time (filled with mundane/repetitive tasks). The book introduces several locations and frequently connects them by characters being chased, sneaking, or simply travelling from one to another. A map would have fostered better understanding of the relations between those places and getting an idea on what it would take in terms of time/effort to get around.
After finishing the 2nd book of the series I'm still fascinated by the world and it's characters. I'd recommend the book to readers with interest in sword&wand fantasy worlds that focus on character development rather than political intrigues.
This is actually quite a good plot with enough darkness to cover any cracks. Where there is weakness however is in the descriptive work and characterisation, which at times is paper thin. Easy read and good fun, but not Eddings or Stevenson.
Brock manages this through the trials of his young protagonist, drawing you in to this multi-threaded tale of a young sorcerer thrust into a devilish plot against the throne.
Looking forward to seeing how this unfolds.
