I really enjoyed the journey ,getting to know the characters. The plot is to save the world,from, who knows what at this stage. But the group tasked with this are really likeable. I cannot wait f
or the 2nd . I believe this could be a real long series, at least I hope so.

I rarely write book reviews, but this one insists on being an exception to that rule. Sean Hinn appears to have discovered why David Gemmell was a master of his trade, and even better he has managed to emulate it. Unlike so many authors, and so like David Gemmell, Sean Hinn leaves you no choice but to become invested in the characters of this novel, you can't escape it, it creeps up on you and suddenly, you care what happens. It's what makes a good novel great, and this is a great novel. I read a lot of books; many are good, many sadly are not so good, but any book which fails to get the reader to engage with the characters... There's no such worry here, the scope of the novel is excellent and the various characters promise so much more, I can't wait. If for whatever mad reason you only intend to read one book this year, make it "Tahr", not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful first work - watch this author! 27 July 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm getting old - or maybe it's the explosion of new, self-published titles made possible by the lowered barriers to entry that Kindle provides, but I'm afraid to try new authors. I don't want to waste my time. Heck, back in the '80s I was caught up by well-established author Jack Chalker's ability to spin a beautiful paragraph - until I found myself realizing, halfway through the third book of a 5 book trilogy, that he had absolutely no story.

Have no fear of any time wasted with Sean Hinn! Some good friends recommended that I read his first title, I did and boy am I so glad for it. By the time I finished the Prologue, I knew I had to finish the book. My measure of good writing is that I don't notice it while I'm reading, that the words form a flow of images in my mind. Hinn's crafting of words is just so; descriptive without wasting words, colloquial without tripping my reading. I was at Chapter VI when I remembered that I was reading a new author, and that was just because I had to set the book down for the night.

No spoilers to the story here, but it is compelling. It made me want to keep reading, find out what happens next, know more about the protagonists. Overall, I am pleased to unreservedly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good fantasy writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Big Glowing Stars!! 25 July 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I’m honestly not much of a book reader (magazine articles, news blurbs and wordy friends’ text and emails, sure; but not books), and when I do pick up a book, it’s usually not the fantasy genre – I’m more into sci-fi and suspense/thrillers. That said, I was offered a free advance PDF of this book in exchange for my honest opinion, and here it is:

I just could not put this book down. There’s the perfect amount of description of characters and environment to put you right there in their world and make you invested in their lives. And it’s a very interesting place in which they live; and their interactions, both with their own kind and others, is fascinating – and at times, hilarious. The story is great and has just the right amount of magic and mysticism to make it fun and interesting without being over-the-top, and there are many parallels to real-world issues. I’m sure everyone that reads will see a bit of themselves and/or people they know in many of the characters. You will find yourself needing to know what will happen to these fantastic characters next! Easily the best book I’ve read in years, and maybe ever – in any genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out and fun to read 26 July 2016
By David Hupperts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this book on a news feed site I routinely visit. I bought it thinking I would just help out a fellow poster on the site. I'm stunned at how good this book is. I read it in one sitting (which is beyond rare for me). I've been a fan of fantasy series for about 20 years now. This, by far, is the best offering I've read in many years. Can't wait for the next book. You can visit the author's web page and get signed up for notices of future offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed this book - time well spent! 2 Sept. 2016
By SONJA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this book and while I don't usually read fantasy, I absolutely loved this. Compelling from the very beginning, the characters and their specific types (dwarfs, gnomes, elves, wizards) were well thought out with original aspects to their particular species. The descriptions of the characters themselves were completely engaging while good imagery brought this world to life. The pace was excellent and held my attention. I found myself wanting to sneak away and read the book throughout the day.

As a homeschooling mom, I love that the story (thus far) is clean enough for a child to read but not overly simplistic. I could easily recommend this to a 13 year old girl or to my 17 year old son. I would also heartily recommend it to my friends as well. It is a thoroughly entertaining story with enough interest to capture almost anyone's attention. If I were to assign this as a reading assignment to my kids, I would focus on the themes of bravery, sacrifice and honor on the one hand and arrogance, obsession, and indolence on the other. There is plenty in the book to discuss and think about. However, as a reader I just enjoyed the ride.

My only complaint (and this goes for most modern fiction) is that unlike the classics, there is no actual plot resolution. We are literally left in the middle of the story. That is a pet peeve of mine, but it does seem to be a rather irritating trend. Though, considering that Dickens wrote his stories as weekly or monthly serials for newspapers, I guess what's old is new again. Fortunately, the next part should be out very shortly. I hope the author is already working on the third installment (if there is one) and we won't have to wait long. If the second part is as good as the first, I will be on pins and needles waiting for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book 25 July 2016
By Albert Hinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A truly delightful addition to the fantasy genre. A fully developed world with believable characters – some to like, a couple to loathe and at least one (the gnome girl Shyla) to treasure.
I like the way the story moves along without over emphasis on “talismans”. In this first book at least there is no fabled sword or sorcerer’s ring, just people confronting a worldwide (Tahr wide) problem and some reacting with integrity and trying to devise a plan to cope with it. Also, on the other hand, a couple of nefarious villains to exploit the situation for their own ends.
An easy read, a very satisfying and very well constructed book. If the sequels meet or even exceed this first effort, I see no reason why this series won’t become as popular as Mr. Brooks Shannara series.
