I love this epic story it give me all that I need in a fantasy trilogy. the coming of age and discovery of self is magnificent. Though some actions are predictable I love it. there is not long details just action in every chapter.
Terry Brooks Shannara books.
No I don't believe I have; but I will be looking for him from no on.
Yes!! I found my self holding my breathe with hand over month and eyes wide open with fear. Self splitting laughter I like these books and am waiting with bated breathe for the last one.
I wish I could find more like this.
In the middle.
Yes. Although I do find that "too much" happens in "too short" a time, nevertheless there was enough to make it interesting, and the $1.99 price for the audiobook (because already owning the Kindle version free) was worth it.
I was skeptical about this audiobook, until I heard Wayne Farrell. He was well chosen. Does a solid job. And I was impressed with how well he could differentiate characters without resorting to any overdramatics.
If the activity allowed it, perhaps.
The marketing plan of offering a free Book #1 on Kindle, and then a $1.99 upgrade to Audiobook on Audible was a smart choice.
I wanted this story to end. I struggled to get through it. Thor was down sandwiches short a basket. the characters had no depth; the storyline had no reason. I gave it 3stars because it was a book, just not a good one.
Thor is almost a compelling character except for his extremely tropic hits of being a hero. While every story always has some tropes, this one hits them all and make the story extremely predictable. Yet at the same time the author does not provide information for world building until after the turn of events which hinge upon how that world operates. As a quick example, the falcon being the symbol of the kingdom is not mentioned until the hero Thor received a falcon as a gift. A better writing strategy is to build up the significance so you feel more enthusiastic about Thors accomplishments. Along with this poor writing then comes poor choices of story development. The character should not be gifted certain amenities and honors so quickly after pulling off a save that is not really spectacular. Very little justification for character choices, and poor writing relying heavily upon typical high fantasy language to carry any interest in the story.
I like the story in general. It's not terribly original, but entertaining.
unfortunately, the author uses several phrases so often, it started to really get on my nerves. "he could hardly believe .." in particular comes to mind.
I also felt the main character was really a whiny, self involved baby fairly frequently. he seemed to take personal offense at everything, always assuming he was being slighted or being treated unfairly, which honestly gets a bit tiresome.
I did like some of the imagery, and sometimes could get a good picture in my head of what was being described
not a bad book, but not a great one either
