A second 5 star review for THE PRINCE’S MAN; still a week to release!

Chuffed author here again 🙂

Still one week to go until release date, July 29th, and THE PRINCE’S MAN has a second 5 star review!

So without further ado, here it is!

 

An unmissable read 21 July 2013

I know, I know. I never give 5 stars to anything, but I finished this book and went immediately to “Where’s the next one”. Which of course, there isn’t. The one I read was an advanced reader’s copy I got in exchange for an honest review, but I assure you that I will definitely be watching this author so that I can snap up whatever else she comes out with!
Back to the book. The Prince’s man is set in a fantasy world where mankind has been trying to survive on a new land for a hundred years and more. Since they escaped from a land full of magic and a war with the fae. There are several kingdoms, which appear to be an approximation of medieval Europe. None of the kingdoms get on particularly well of course.
We follow Rustam Chalice (Rusty) as the kingdom appears about to topple. Someone is selling the secret to eternal life and making a lot of money. That money appears to be going to fund a private army. Something the young king’s uncle, the spymaster as it were, cannot allow any of the families to do. When the families have fought before, it was disastrous and it doesn’t look to be any less so now. Especially for the royals and those who are loyal to them.
It’s an epic adventure with several well formed and engaging characters. As well as Rusty we have the cold Lady Risada Delgano vas Domn. Who saw her parent’s murdered when she was but 6 years old. She raised her brother, the Lord Iain Merschenko vas Domn to rule the second house but is struggling to let go of the reins (in true medieval style, women cannot rule a family). The interactions between these two as well as the other, less loyal characters, are both believable and unpredictable. It’s been a while since I didn’t know what was going to happen next in a book!
Add into that magic which is both awed and feared and you have the perfect epic fantasy adventure in a style that will have you gripped to every word. Please note, that it is advisable to start this book when you have a block of time to dedicate to it. Starting an hour before needing to leave the house will make you late, I should know. Read time approx. 5 – 6 hours. (Again, remember that I read quite fast. It’s 5904 locations on kindle so compare it to the time you take to read books of a similar length for a personal estimate).
 
Isn’t that lovely?
So excited, I just had to share 🙂
