Just wanted to share my happy author day – 2 reviews now in for THE PRINCE’S SON (one UK and one US), a 5* and a 4*

Format: Kindle Edition

It seems ages since I read The Prince’s Man by this author and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to follow on but it was easy and covered in the first chapter as well as back references later.
A well crafted book which held me in its spell and transported me to forests, castles and caves with ease.
I definitely recommend this to anyone who either loves fantasy or is a ‘newbie’ to it as am I.

And from US author Andy Peloquin

Format: Kindle Edition

This book started out a tad slow for my tastes. It was the classic romance-heavy fantasy story at the beginning: two people pining for their impossible love, a girl envious of her sister’s happily ever after, and romance out the wazoo.

The story picked up at about the 20% mark, and it kept up a steady pace all the way to the end. The characters were well-written and fleshed out, and the book was beautifully free of grammar mistakes, punctuation errors, and typos (a personal pet peeve of mine).

I give it four stars because the story was a bit more focused on the romantic side of things than I’d like. A lot of the characters are defined by their feelings for others, rather than having the romance be a subplot in a larger story.

But overall, it was a well-crafted fantasy tale I’d recommend for any fantasy readers.

As Andy writes GrimDark Fantasy, I wasn’t surprised that this was not quite his cup of tea, but I’m very grateful to him for taking the time to read and review a little out of his comfort zone.
You can see my review of his first novel, BLADE OF THE DESTROYER here  with my review of his latest scheduled for later this month.
So very happy with my early reviews, looking forward to many more 😀
