Maybe, if you know that , you will enjoy it more than me. My main beef though was with the heroine who seems to be consistently, mindbogglingly stupid. Not just the mooning over the H at a time when mooning is clearly inappropriate , but flinging herself info situations where nothing but sheer luck saves her. But if you like a fairly graphic romance and some adventure, go for it....
PS the second one seems to give up on the magic sword and actually has an interesting (secondary) plot.
PPS yes I was stuck on a 6hr plane ride with only these two so that's why I finished both....
I was familiar with Ms. Szarek's writing style prior to purchasing this novel when it was on sale. I found that when it comes to this novel I enjoy its plot, the world everything was set in, and the characters. However, what was annoying was some of the drawn out character descriptions and how the main characters (Cera & Jorrin) always seemed to think that not communicating was the best course of action for them. *shakes head* Nevertheless, I'm glad I stuck with it as it really built up the series well.
As for Cera & Jorrin's relationship, I thought when they did actually talk to or followed through on their lust for one another then they were great. It just they are both SOO stubborn that when they get upset (which happens quite a bit) their communication goes out the window, which made me want to smack them both upside their heads by the end of the novel.
Overall, I DO recommend this novel and series to those looking for an eclectic fantasy romance!
Review By: From Me to You ... Book Reviews
-- read more of this review and TWO TEASERS on my blog: http://frommetoyouvideophoto.blogspot.com --
Fantasy Romance is one of my favorite genres, even though half the time I'm left saying WHAT? So I after hearing about this book about 4 months ago through my book club and reading the book blub as well as being teased with snippets on the authors blog [...] I had high hopes for this book to deliver. And boy did it ever!
I keep trying to put into words how I feel about this book. WOW! That was my first thought coherent after finishing Sword's Call, book one in the King's Riders series by C.A. Szarek. I couldn't put the book down, I was left with goosepimples! And after hours of trying to write a review that's all I really have! I LOVED THIS BOOK! Loved it so much I'm speechless! I didn't want the story to end, I want more!
I want to write about the work itself but my words seem inadequate. Everything I come up with pales in comparison to this story. It was perfect the way it is. My words will not aid this story in any way.
If you want to read an amazing story with strong women, magic, evil and love, than this is a series for you! C.A. Szarek blows this genre out of the water. My only regret is I have to WAIT for the next book!
Please pick up your copy of Sword's Call today, you won't be disappointed!
Cera's journey is not only a geographical one, but also a maturing one many levels: personal, love, friendsip, family.
For Cera, finding Jorrin is in a way finding the missing piece, and I do think they have a lot of growing to do together. Jorrin, as fabulous as is, is still young and has his own internal struggle to battle with. Although a man that can be counted on, he is letting Cera to take decisions although not always agreeing with her, he is not the overbearing alfa male that conquers all in his way, and that is why he is the perfect match for Cera.
Jorrin has his own journey and processes to take on as he discovers that his path is actually entwined with Cera's.
Cannot wait to see what C.A.Szarek has in the future for us and what the couple as an acomplished and fulfilled man and woman have in store for us, as well as their friends....I have my eyes on a couple of them.
And of course, very anxious to meet the next Ryhan generation and their adventures.
5 ***** shiny stars!!!
