What did you love best about Lycentia, Harrak's Scrolls?
I love the way Dave King keeps the focus on ordinary people, rather than filling his story to the brim with heroes.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Lycentia, Harrak's Scrolls?
When you (the reader) realize that certain events are not accidents...
Have you listened to any of Ian Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, I've listened to his performance in Betrovia, the first book in Dave King's Betrovia series. As before, Ian Miller really imbues the story and the characters with life and personality.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I don't tend to react to books emotionally. The book definitely makes you care for the characters, though.
Any additional comments?
Lycentia definitely moves a bit slower than the first book in the Betrovia series, and I can just imagine that there are some who would be bothered by this. For my part, however, I found it very enjoyable. In truth, some of the best books ever written move no faster.
I love the emphasis the author places on the religious background of his world. This makes the motives and concerns of the people all the more vivid, in my opinion.
Dave King does an excellent job developing his characters in both Betrovia and Lycentia; once again they each feel like living, breathing people with their own personalities, ideas and ambitions. I also think it is fascinating how King keeps his focus on 'ordinary' people rather than on great warriors and heroes. It is refreshing to see an author try something different, and very refreshing to see how well he succeeds with it.
This book definitely left me wanting to see what happens next.
