First off, I have to say I was happy to see Corgen back in this story. Having he and his brother involved ties the two prequels together in setting up the forthcoming novel. While he didn’t have a big role per se, he did play an important part in the story.
The rest of the characters were interesting, but I wasn’t a fan of Hastra. Granted, she did what she felt was right, but I just didn’t like her attitude toward her visions. That could just be my expectation as I’m used to seeing characters look for help when they need it, so take this critique with a grain of salt.
The story itself was engaging except for Hastra being the main character. I just didn’t like her enough to root for her. At times she and the story felt rushed as it covered several months in a couple of paragraphs, I can see why the author did that. There is only so much story for a short like this that you want to give away. I did like the underlying theme of the Withlings and thought it was done in a way that didn’t slow the story at all.
Overall, I enjoyed the story and can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us in his novel.
From this beginning, the story focuses on Hastra’s life among the Withling, her attempts to uncover the meaning of her vision, and the fickle nature of prophecy as it all becomes clear far too late. There is even an appearance by some old friends!
All in all, “What Is Needed” was a good introduction to the Withlings and continued unveiling the major players in the land of The Bow of Hart Saga. While I can’t say that I enjoyed it as much as I did the first prequel that might be because the Withlings and their home have a very mystic school quality (not Hogwarts, but in that vein) that I personally am not a fan of. Definitely, another great teaser for the ongoing series though, and worth a try if you are interested in seeing if Mr. Solomon’s classic fantasy series is something you might enjoy.
It was fascinating to find Coregren and his brother, Paugren, from Trading Knives here at the Withling Tower. I really liked Hastra and her sister and friend, Zelma and Howart.I was really getting into their story when it ended.That's fair as it was a prequel.
For my part, P.H. Soloman accomplished his objective. I'm definitely going to buy and read The Bow of Destiny, which showed up here as a prophecy.
