Ok, so I know I said book three was my favorite, but… this one is even better. The only bone I have to pick is that it isn’t the last book! The next one is supposed to come out sometime early 2016. Wonderful allegory that retells the story of God’s love and forgiveness through his son. Though the words “God” and “Jesus” aren’t used. Good writing, great fantasy with all the quirky characters including some beasts and creatures, and well rounded characters. No sexual content or swearing. There is romance and there is violence. Epic story of good versus evil. I give it five stars, loved it, and can recommend for ages teens and up (and any fantasy love, you do not have to be a Christian to enjoy this book!) While I am waiting for book five, I see the author has written a few “stories” about the White Road, so….
I received a copy of this book from Story Cartel, in exchange for an honest review. Great fantasy! This book reminds me a little of Sinbad, as the main character has several smaller quests that end up in a herculean effort to save the world. The main character is a strong female, and the secondary characters are champions, guardians, an old woman, and a youth. Good writing, reads like Lord of the Rings, good versus evil. I really liked it. I give Chronicles of Casaara 4 stars. Good for teens and up. No swearing and no sexual content.
I was given a copy of “Many Waters” by the author, William Woodall, in exchange for an honest review. This is book two of a series. I enjoyed both books. They are written about young people who are faced with trials. With God’s help (the author does not preach) and some help from friends and family they are able to overcome. This is a story of good versus evil, and has not only an element of fantasy, but is a good romance as well. Good for readers Jr. High and up. I think geared for YA. I do feel like there is some things left unexplained, some of the characters and who they are are a little vague. I would have given it four stars had things been a little clearer. These books need to be read in order. Not stand alone. I will definitely finish the series. No swearing or sexual content, some violence.
I was given a copy of “Path of Darkness” book two of the “Seekers Burden” by the author, Mark Lein, in exchange for an honest review. This was a good fantasy. The first book in the series “An Emerging Threat,” set the foundation. this book continues with the characters, lands and peoples. Good writing, interesting plot. These are not stand alone books, you need to read the first to understand and book two ends pretty abruptly. I really liked it. I am looking forward to reading the rest. I can recommend to teens and up. No swearing and no sexual content, (no romance). There is violence and fighting. I give it 4 stars.
At first I thought, “Another Dragon Rider book”, but I loved it. Great fantasy writing. Loveable characters, and of course, dragons. (The main one reminding me quite a bit of my dog). Appropriate for teens and up, will surely be looking forward to more in the series. I was given a copy of “Hatch” by the author, James Stevens, in exchange for an honest review. I give it 5 stars!
I was given a copy of “An Emerging Threat” by the author, Mark Lein, in exchange for an honest review. This was a good fantasy. The first in a series, it sets the foundation for the next stories. We are introduced to some of the characters, lands and peoples. Good writing, interesting plot. Classic story of good versus evil. I really liked it. I am looking forward to reading the rest. I can recommend to teens and up. I give it 4 stars.
If you are an author and would like me to review your book, please leave your information below with your request in the comment box. I will not review horror or erotica.
I just loved this book! Because It had all three books in one volume, it was a very long read. I read and read, cried and cried, chuckled and read some more. Then when it all finished up, I was not ready to say goodbye to all my new friends! This is an epic fantasy, many characters, (think of Tolkien’s books), it is the usual good versus evil plot. I can’t even imagine the time put into the names, lands, peoples and creatures, the different languages and customs. The characters were lovable, and my two favorite were Belo and Rafe, who were both “Amazing Nice,” and provided some comic relief. I had this book on my reading list and was thrilled when the Author, Bob Craton, offered me a copy in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, I’ll read this one again, maybe more than once. 5 stars from me! Appropriate for Jr. High and up. Well done Mr. Craton.
