Naomi Novik is a wonderful story teller with a great imagination. She reminds me of Bernard Cornwell with her mixture of historical events and fictional characters that are so masterfully combined that the reality of our past may be forever changed. Have you ever thought of co-writing a book with Bernard Cornwell? Maybe titled Sharpes Dragons!
This is the first book in a ten book series that will have you reading this series over and over again. If you are up for en incredible journey of magic, intrigue, and fantasy; this is the book for you. The character developement is so complete that when you finish this epic series you will really miss them.
I miss having President Ronald Reagan as my President. He was a great leader and visionary who loved his Country and had the courage to beleive that we as a people could become Great. You don't manage a country. You Lead!
When I seen that Cameron Beierle was the narrator of this book I had to give this book a listen. To those of you who have already read or listen to the Belgarion series which Mr. Beierle narrates, this book may seem a bit weak, thats being kind. But I am comparing Dennis L. McKieman's book to the best epic ever written. David Eddings ten book series is the greatest work of fantasy ever written and Mr. Beierle brought those characters to life. If you have not read the Belgarion and the Mallorean series do so right now. Don't just get it from the library. Buy it and keep it safe. It's on Audible!!! ps. Whose this Tolkien guy? jk
