My Review of The Dragonkin Trilogy

Review:

The Dragonkin Trilogy - Michael Meyerhofer

I received The Dragonkin Trilogy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

 

The Dragonkin Trilogy by Michael Meyerhofer is the story of Rowen Locke. Rowen has always dreamed of becoming a Knight of Crane, but with war looming Rowen has to decide where he stands.

 

First I have to say WOW!!! I was thoroughly blown away by this story. It is your typical sword and sorcery tale, but yet it isn’t. Yes, it has the good vs. evil. Yes, it has magic. And yes, it has battles, and lots of them. But, what isn’t typical is the fact that you won’t find your typical races. You won’t find dwarfs, elves, orcs, and the like. This tale has a host of very different races. It was very refreshing to meet these new races and still have the feel of a sword and sorcery tale.

 

This story is very well written with vivid descriptions, and amazing world building. The characters are flawed, which makes them stand out from the pages and become flesh and bone. The dialogue is entertaining with a few laughs here and there.

 

My only problem with this trilogy is that I feel as though some of the issues surrounding certain characters weren’t fully resolved at the end. I’m hoping that the author is going to continue this story with focusing on those particular characters with spin-offs. If not for this fact, I would have given this trilogy five stars. So, therefore I’m giving the entire trilogy 4.5.

 

I highly recommend this trilogy because it is well written with a host of new races, and lots of excitement.

My Review of Stoneweaver – A Clash of Sword and Stone

Review:

A Clash of Sword and Stone -- Prequel to the The Stoneweaver Saga (Volume 1) - Cabe Valion

Stoneweaver – A Clash of Sword and Stone by Cabe Valion is the first book in a new epic fantasy series, The Dread Magic Saga. De Mauriac is sent by Nenevah to retrieve an asset, a Stoneweaver.

 

This tale is a promising start to a new epic fantasy. The concept is very interesting; a new take on magical abilities that I had not read before. The characters are well fleshed out, and the story is well written. It has imaginative world building. My only complaint is that it is too short! I’m interested in seeing where this story takes me. Looking forward to the next installment.

 

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Definitive Sword and Sorcery: Kull by Robert E. Howard

Definitive Sword and Sorcery: Kull by Robert E. Howard

Mighty Thor JRS - Fantasy Book News & Reviews

Welcome to my new blog post series here on Mighty Thor JRS, Definitive Sword and Sorcery. At least what is definitive in my opinion. I will spotlight some of the best authors and books fantasy has ever known. I can’t wait to share these amazing books, authors, and the amazing cover art and artist. For my sixth post I am going to go with Robert E. Howard and his Kull stories.

So yeah Robert E. Howard is basically the most definitive of definitive Sword and Sorcery! Everybody knows Conan, but Kull gets overlooked. Every S&S character gets overlooked next to Conan but hey he is pretty awesome! (More on Conan in my next post). I thought Kull needed some Definitive Sword and Sorcery love!

Before Conan there was Kull. Conan, whose first appearance was in a re-write of a rejected Kull story, probably would never have came about if…

My Review of Peter Huddleston & The Knights of the Leaf

Review:

Galadria: Peter Huddleston & the Knights of the Leaf - Miguel Lopez de Leon

Peter Huddleston & The Knights of the Leaf by Miguel Lopez de Leon is the final book in the Galadria trilogy. Peter and his grandfather seek out the Knights of the Leaf to help in the raging war.

 

This book picks up where the second book left off. It is full of imaginative creatures. A fast paced story, and wonderful characters. There were a few things that I knew were coming, but these things didn’t get in the way of my enjoyment. Wonderful trilogy.

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. All opinions are my own.
