Publisher's Summary

Knights. Queens. Chaos.
Could you defy a king's command to protect your only daughter?
With intense hatred brewing among the ruling families, Duke Jon Colbert has a choice to make. Will the indomitable duke bend a stiff knee and obey the king or risk treason to be the first man in many years to defy his king openly?
In a land where the lines between good and evil can be both clear and blurred, motives for revenge become entangled in a world of intrigue, deception, and drama. Separate storylines converge to weave a vivid literary tapestry of interesting characters with questionable intentions.
Two Heads, Two Spikes is the first volume in Jason Paul Rice's Pearl of Wisdom Saga. If you love George RR Martin, Joe Abercrombie, and Robin Hobb, you'll enjoy a series that combines their tradition with a multiple point of view epic fantasy set in the medieval period.
Pick up Two Heads, Two Spikes and embark on an adventure filled with darkness, forbidden romance, family struggles, suspense, action, and strong female characters amid overtones of classic fantasy.

Interesting, busy, well narrated

I thought the story was a little hard to follow in the beginning, if you're not paying full attention you may get lost as I did. Once I figured out what the writer was doing it became much more interesting.
There are a lot of characters and a few with similar names so be careful not to mix them up. As far as name go, I thought the really bad guy names(I'd say it but I don't want to give anything away) was lacking in creativity as well as the name of their island. It rather reminded me of a Saturday morning cartoon character. Overall it was a very interesting book, with lots of twists and turns and a very high cliff to hang from at the end.
The narrator was excellent, very well spoken and clearly understood. At times it may have been hard to distinguish which character was speaking, but again you have to pay full attention so this was likely my fault not hers.
I would recommend this book, but if you're offended by graphic violence, cursing, or sex then this would not be for you.

Epic Fantasy That Sadly Misses The Mark.

I received this book through Audio Book Boom in exchange for an honest review. The need to write a review was the only reason I finished this book. There is nothing terribly wrong about this book to make me hate it. There just wasn’t anything compelling about it either. The beginning for me was the worst. I do concede that it gets better, but never enough so that I actually wanted to continue reading it. I like epic sized books set in a medieval type of time period with sword, sorcery and palace intrigue a la “Game of Thrones” and “Codex Alera” or any number of others. Although “Game of Thrones,” and “Codex Alera” are from two big name authors, I don’t actually require that my epic fantasy comes from a big name author. If it’s good, it’s good. This book just wasn't that good.

As far as I'm concerned, “Two Heads, Two Spikes” had too many unnecessary and uninteresting story threads that the book could have done without. I guarantee if they were removed, not only would they not have been missed by anyone, but the story that remained would have become much more compelling and focused.

“Two Heads, Two Spikes: The Pearl Of Wisdom Saga, Book 1,” just didn’t do it for me. It was a struggle to get through and I don’t have any intention of reading book two. I know I’m in the minority on this one compared to the reviews on Amazon, but, for what it’s worth, I stand by my opinion.
