I enjoyed this book by first time author, T. The story and characters drew me in making me want to find out what happened next. It's been awhile since I've read a medieval type fantasy full of knights and battles, so I was anxious to dive into this one.
I enjoyed the prologue, set up the story well. The writing was a bit clunky at parts, where flow was disrupted, but it take away from the story too much. The main character Rysh, wasn't really a main character, in my opinion. He played a big part in the story, don't get me wrong, but there was also a lot of the book he had no part it, where the reader is flooded with many other characters.
The Hidden Oracle
I liked Rysh's character, there seemed to be a lot of bouncing in and out with him, and other characters. Though it came to kind of an abrupt ending, the story itself was good, the weaving of subplots and different point of views. Battles were fun and engaging. Overall, I enjoyed the read and would be interested to see how the story continues. I'd probably give it 3. I'd recommend anyone who enjoys fantasy, especially medieval time type stuff, give this a read. One person found this helpful.
And a slave trade with fighting pits! At first I suspected the main protagonist was going to be Alric, a lord and knight tasked with getting the newborn baby princess to safety when invaders attack. GOT like, there is a huge cast of characters.

The only two I got briefly confused with shortly after their introduction were two young noblemen on the Ansaroth team, who are neither reckoned to be all that in the sword-fighting department: The plot is well thought out, with a variety of sub-plots and high machinations on the go at any one time, and people who we thought were lost turning up again.
There are also a fine sprinkling of villains and villains in the making.
Isle of Swords (Pirate Adventures): Wayne Thomas Batson: wiwihuhuca.tk: Books
So satisfying enough, and our heroes are in a good place, but the reader knows there are still major trials to come. There are a few things that could be improved, even though as I said I had no trouble powering through the story. And I am rather picky. The one that bugged me most was a tendency to telegraph and over-inform the reader excessively. This is true during conversations especially, but also in other details such as the order in which the people are walking, which we always know. And the orders given on shipboard. Some details felt inauthentic to me. The point of strongholds, with walls and gates, was surely to offer a place of safety from enemies?
Sieges were notoriously hard to break. Which is exactly what happened.

Plus the omniscient narrator thing didn't always work: A lot of the time, we didn't need to be told specifically how each person felt anyway, we could just infer. But these are details: For the next installment, I would hope for a slightly leaner writing style, and maybe for the female heroines to step up a bit. Hopefully with no Boromir to create a fly in the ointment one traitor was revealed early on, no spoilers. Give it a go. Readers of epic fantasy who enjoy quests, magic, prophecies, and monsters may want to give The Blood-Stained Heir a try.
A baby princess hidden away until her fourteenth year learns her identity and begins a journey home to her kingdom. Like any quest, they meet a series of obstacles along the way, and there is plenty of action to keep the story moving. There is frequent violence and the fight scenes are engaging.
The pace moved along despite a considerable amount of restating and over-explaining on the part of the author. An editing pass aimed at tightening would make this book a faster and even more enjoyable read. The characters are interesting and fully realized, though the large cast of characters is a challenge to keep track of. There are a wide variety of personalities and many of them are flawed, which keeps the reader on their toes.
Emotions felt authentic, and the dialog flowed naturally. The book ends on a high note, but the journey is far from done. This book is definitely to be read as part of a longer series. I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. A hunted princess hoping to get home, a band of companions helping in her journey because of honor, guilt and skill, and magical cynical villains in the midst of war, create this medieval fantasy that pays homage to great legends in this genre such as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
The story is jam-packed with well described fights, back-stabbings, and thoughts and obstacles that stay in your mind from chapter to chapter. A simple metalsmith and farmer turned warrior, he has become the most unlikely of heroes to the conquerors of his own people, the Caerfolk. Yet there is a growing faction of Jorskians who believe that if he were truly anointed as Chosen One by the Gods, then the immortals would have given him the Sword of Light as proof of his calling.
Missing for generations, the sword is more myth than reality. But Devlin knows where to find it. Feeling more than ever a pawn of fate--and a plaything of the Gods who drive him--Devlin must return to the land of his birth, back to the people who have denounced him. For he is bound by an oath he has no choice but to obey Patricia Bray inherited her love of books from her parents, both of whom were fine storytellers in the Irish tradition.
She has always enjoyed spinning tales, and turned to writing as a chance to share her stories with a wider audience. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Learn more about Amazon Prime.

Political intrigue, a clash of ideas and culture, and not a kiss of romance thankfully to be found. Just good strong characters, plotting, and writing. This was an okay continuation of Devlin's story lots of angst with the character but still fun. I will read the last to find out what happens. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase.
