This review is more about the entire Sovereign of The Seven Isles series and not just Linkershim. ***Statements Which Could Be Construed As Spoilers***
Overall I really have enjoyed this series by David A. Wells. The story has a great cast as well as an intriguing system of magic that is as varied and unique as the personalities of each character.
The storyline has been fun and enjoyable to read with only a few kinks. Alexander is a great leading character who grows in his charge and complexity with each novel. You can see that his growth as a character is allowing him to become the powerful and cunning hero that the uber sensational villain requires of him. But this growth is spread out and well timed. The challenges he faces drag at times and in only a couple of instances end too abruptly. But all things considered this has been a great read thus far.
However, I am a bit of a romantic and this author really knows how to layer on the heartbreaking relationship trials. I had to take an intermission between books because I did not like the direction the love story was headed in. It was a sappy and endearing relationship where it was obvious they were completely devoted to each other. It reminded me a lot of those high school couples that are always hanging on and around each other because they refuse to miss a minute of life without the other. A little annoying to friends and others but it is truly a fun and exciting fantasy world to be a part of. How could you break that up!!!
After getting over it and pressing on I have to admit that Wells did not slaughter the beauty of the initial love story as I thought he was going to. I still do not care for the exact turn of events in this part of the story, but it is bearable and I must admit that it granted more depth to my animosity for Prince Phane and brought on an attentive anxiety to move through the story to arrive at the resolution. But alas, hang in there chaps because it is going to be a long ride toward this resolution as this conflict will endure through the final addition to this story in Reishi Adept which is set to come out on Audible January 9, 2015.
But I am looking forward to it!!!

absolutely loved this book, a worthy read.
will be sad to read the last book in this seriez.
Worth a listen but a bit naive as if written for children. The author must have had a very privileged and sheltered life to explain his belief that this is the worst humans can think of.
