a nice little story about a Prince learning how to be a good man before reclaiming the throne. not perfect, but it kept me listening all the way through.
I've read and listened to several shorts by C J Brightley. Although they did not blow me away, the storytelling was exceptional for an Indie author.
Going into this full length novel, I anticipated more and was treated to a world building full of wonderment with characters so deeply rooted with self conviction and meaning, it was easy to get lost in it.
This must have been professionally edited and cultivated for years. It flowed easily, despite the complexity of the quests and plot.
The narrator was ideal for this storytelling. It was to listen and remain entranced with the book.
A throwback to true epic books. This book isn't a "light" book, but it will entrap a listener or reader until the final words.
Snarky main characters are fine (once in a while) but I was so over it. This book had the characters we connect with and care about.
No love triangles! Although this could be YA, it does not have that annoyance!
Characters grow because of events and knowledge, not because it's plot driven.
Conversations are smooth and believable. It's not forced not stilted.
Descriptive writing! For a first person POV, it is not over burdened with monotonous, tedious details. Only somewhat occasionally stilted, this the 4 stars for the story- but more like 4.50, just not quite 5.
I recommend this to everyone who wants a GOOD book to curl up with.
I was offered an audible code but freely and enthusiastically offer my review and opinions.
I love this series of books and have them all in ebook form. I wanted the audio versions but so far only found an audio of book one. I highly recommend these books.
