Creadores De Riqueza hAre a few minor plot surprises inow the individual uests turned outBut what this book excelled at was military campaigns Whether it was large battles being staged across the map unusual fighting formations in different races being explained the organization "Of Factions Or Various Characters Staying "the factions or various characters staying minded on their tasks the strategies introduced were easy to follow and interesting And that is something I usually find very boring but I took several notes on well done battle scenesThe special weapon created in the end sounds uite stunning tooRecommendationThe mechanical issues and lack of character depth in this book made it a bit of a labor for me but I acknowledge that I prefer character driven stories It was Canal Dweller The Dweller Series Book 2 high on action adventure environment and strategy which I enjoyed It s a large scale fantasy tale with simple good vs evil objectives I probably won t buy the second book in the series because I do prefer a little umpf in character design like Frea but I enjoyed this first book in the series for what it was worth in terms of giving me a bird s eye view of a good rpg style uest for a group of characters to accomplish Great potential but overall I found it too confusing Iad a difficult time keeping the relationships straight and who was from which Kingdom and much was introduced with no explanation or backstory All sorts of things On Fire have different names but we never get an idea of what they are droderns Still the story was good maybe a little personification of the grondels instead of mindless killing fodder and a little development of the rather stiff characters and I wouldave been int Gave up on itthe character development was not well done it was one plotted event after the othersort of like uests in a videogame When the character finishes this they did this and then that thennnn they walked some theeeen they ran into trouble and then they found something So mechanically done I could not get into it at all Wow I got this as a free book from kindle and was I blown away This is an indepth story with well planned and well thoughtout back stories and plots You are introduced to a band of characters who then split up and the story arcs are told and then parts woven together I liked With Unclean Hands how the earthuake could be used to mark the time and location each person was at in order to follow the story continuity I found this book to not just be a great read and definately not a uick read but a satisfying read It fed my craving for an adventure that would pull me in and keep my interest I ve read books by famous authors that were not even close to this interesting or skillful and some of those where made into movies Definately worth my time to read and will definately be reading EVERYTHING this authoras to write I would recommend this to anyone who wants an adventure the likes of Tolkien Weis and Hickman and Eddings Another free first book in a series that I Stranger have enjoyed Like a lot of series books the first can take a minute to fully get into this one introduces a lot of characters uickly and as the names are unfamiliar it took me a bit to get to know everybody and where they all relate Had the same thinappen with g r r Martin so its nothing new Once I knew everybody e Story Picked Up And I picked up and I it in a day So far so good and the promise of the unfolding story is ighly anticipated I started it but left it and read another book Glad I came back to try again The free first worked on me again as I purchased book two and am sure I will buy book three and even the supplemental story of book four if you enjoy a good fantasy then give it a whirl A good book Took a while to get into the book but once I did it kept me intrigued to the end and will actually now want to read the rest of the series so that I can see ow they eventually win the war The book is written in a similar way to the Lord of the Rings with various groups of people who ave to learn to work together to fight a common enemy and save the world What can I say praise is not enough for the first book of this series I am a lifelong fan of Robert Jordon and Wheel of Time series this series Da Sta Nha Yi Marda N I Tamaddunha Yi Mukhtalif has the potential to rival it A must read and a stay awake page turner.

Wishing The Other Charactersthe other characters been done in a similar fashion My only complaint about Freya s passages is that there was nothing to set er inner dialog apart from er narrative Her inner dialog should Gynecocracy have been italicized as direct thoughts the same way direct uotes areandled Example Frea thought Sodininkas Florencijus her captors were stupid vs Once upon a time the girl decideder captors were stupid Frea thought to erself Either way I enjoyed seeing er attempt to tell the story of her own captivity Such passages were my favourite part of the book I thoughter voice was uniue personal and entertainingI would Walt Disneys Story A Day For Every Day Of The Year have preferred to see Frea rescueerself rather than being rescued by one of the male characters as a love interest but the female characters in this tale were not necessarily dependent weaklings I would call them strong supporting charactersThe plots of the various characters doing simultaneous uests that eventually come back together as one are well coordinated I like the way the mystery builds around the movement of the second moon And while the overall structure of the story seems predictable to the genre there.

What a great start to The Series Thoroughly Enjoyed This series Thoroughly enjoyed this of action story Excellent BookWow what a fantastic book The author did a great job I particularly enjoyed the storyline I liked ow the author United the six different uman nations to fight as one nation their mortal enemy this book contains plenty of action enemy This book contains plenty of action relationships a little bit of magic and an inhuman enemy to make this a thrilling story to follow This book is one in a series I can t wait to read book two This is a great book to read for anyone Thank you author KJ Hargan for doing such a great job Took a while to get into the interesting parts but it s a pretty nice story with lots of action scenes Could ave rated it 4 stars but something about the writing style bugged me at times Even got confused for a while until I figured out that some parts were not a continuation of events but rather a telling of the same time frame from another character s perspective Notes of InterestThis book feels like a cross between classic Tolkienesue fantasy and a Dungeons and Dragons campaign to the point where even though the text said garonds I was thinking goblins The physical descriptions of the garonds are nothing like the standards fantasy goblin but their behavior and intellect are similar Everything about the elven and Strive Seek Find Yield Spoctoria 1 human races is pretty standard That is not to say theiristories and cultures aren t uniue They just ave that classic feel to themI got the impression that this story was started as an "Rpg Campaign Or A "campaign or a and that the events were drafted as part of a world building activity which then gave way to characters I don t know for certain what order or method the author used for writing this novel but I usually prefer character driven stories that fill in the plot and world around them The fact that these are opposing methods of storytelling did affect ow I received the story But I tried to keep that bias in mind while reading and for this reviewWhat could 1 have made it better for meThe weakest aspect of this novel is its attention to grammar and composition mechanics For composition perhaps the biggest immersion breaker for me was the freuent point of view switches It was meant to be written in third person omniscient but without any warning the narrative would jump into different characterseads Most of my notes while reading comprised of disruptive pov switches There should be noticeable breaks between paragraphs when switching from one character s thoughts to another s Or the author should pick one person and stick to that character s pov meaning the reader should not be able to Death Of Integrity Space Marine Battles 13 hear another character s thoughtsThe second largest number of notes Iighlighted were miscellaneous grammar issues I found a number of typos use of multiple end punctuation marks improper capitalization with dialog tags etc In other words it needed better editing because that too was an immersion breakerThere are several somewhat important characters that either Her Forever Cowboy Men Of Mule Hollow 1 have no names or their names were not given until the end So I was reading about the elf the Archer and the Mage butad no idea who they are No names basic backgrounds mind on the mission At one point the elf is falling in love with the Archer and yet she doesn t even know Sex In The Suburbs his name It just struck me as rather unrealistic in terms relationship basics Was this my character driven bias at play Or is this a genuine problem After giving it some thought I ve decided it s a problem in this case becausead this been a short story I don t think it would The Relative Strength Concept Of Common Stock Price Forecasting have bothered me For a lengthy work most readers tend to want to invest in the characters But the lack of development depth in these protagonists made them still feel like strangers far beyond the first few chapters There were several places where the characters struck me as emotionally dry for this same reasonSome of the statements made or situations simply struck me as unrealistic like falling in love with someone when you don t even knowis name even after traveling together and saving each others lives One case is where a character was taken prisoner for seven days of Tracking The Jackal hard labor and upon seeingim for the first time after that The White Rose his mother noted thate suddenly Wealdland is being overrun by troops of vicious garonds led by the 900 year old evil lord of magic Deifol Hroth Humanity is on the brink of extinction Ioun.
