Présentation de l'éditeur

What would you fight for?

What would you die for?

Though trained in the arts of war, these questions had never occurred to Senndra, an orphan following in her father’s footsteps, or Josiah, the ideal military cadet. When the two meet during an event meant to foster a solid relationship between their academies, they find themselves forced into battle with a forgotten evil. The combined elf, ogre, orc, and human armies could meet this invasion on fair terms, but strained relations between the races have made this possibility uncertain.

For now Senndra, Josiah, and their comrades are all that stand between a massive army and total annihilation of their country, Magessa. Facing horrific odds, the young cadets have no hope of defeating the invading horde. It will be all that they can do to simply stave off the inevitable slaughter, but personal conflict, physical challenge, and internal struggle gets in the way. “How could God allow this to happen?” is the question running through their minds; a question made more poignant by the taunting of the enemy. Will Senndra, Josiah, and their friends be able to maintain their faith, overcome their trials, and find the strength to finally realize themselves as the Guardians of Magessa?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Guardians of Magessa Rocks! 23 juin 2014

Peter M. Last’s book, Guardians of Magessa, is an enchanting story about the events in the cadet days of Senndra Felling, the daughter of elfin magician, Jothnial who battles against the evil wizard, Molkekk.  It has adventure, suspense, a little romance, and helps the reader to assess their own faith and belief in a higher power. 

As an infant, Senndra is rescued from a castle under Molkekk’s control by Jothnial.  Senndra is raised by Jothnial as his daughter, until his death in battle against Molkekk.  She is sent to the Academy at Belvard to learn how to be a superior military fighter after Jothnial’s death.  Senndra is taught very well by her instructor, Lemin, and learns quickly that life at the Academy is very different from life in battle.  She further learns the importance of friendship, how those friendships are forged on the battlefield, and how her faith in a higher power influences the outcome of daily battles.

This book is wonderfully written so that the reader is drawn into the story.  Peter M. Last has a style that keeps the reader asking questions and leaves them wanting more.  I look forward to reading the next book in the Birthright Chronicles Series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Guardians of Magessa Review 24 juin 2014
Par Candice Perini - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
On one side of the door was a marsh that stank of evil. It could easily hide enemies and would be difficult for him to traverse. On the other side was a brightly lit hill. It did not seem evil in the least and was very open” – Narrator.

Overview:

This is the first novel in the Birthright Chronicles by Peter Last and it is epic. Friends Senndra, Timothy, Vladimir, Lemin and Josiah who are thrown into a massive battle from the Dwarves. Together they must fight the odds that are against them for the Dwarves out number their armies plus they also had the element of surprise. It is a long battle of good versus evil where the characters need to maintain their own faith in Elohim and have courage to fight. With a mixture of a vast array of characters from elves, to orcs, to ogres and dragons it is a magical world that you feel like your back in the world of Middle Earth from Tolkien.

My Thoughts:

I was very surprised by this novel and I really liked it. The storyline was interesting, I was able to connect with the characters and I generally wanted to find out what was going to happen. It is jam packed full of action from start to finished which by the end you fell exhausted and I felt like I was actually in the war with the characters. I would be curious to find out what happens with the rest of the series, if Molkkek comes back in his full evil force or if the people of Magessa and Elohim prevail. I would really recommend this book and I feel so honoured to have had the privilege to have read it.

My Rating: 8 out 10 (If I was going to be really picky, and I am mean this is being really picky, I would say that there was a tad too much action. But like I said that is being super picky).

My Favourite Quote: “You always have a choice, Timothy said forcefully. Always. Right now we have a choice to give up the city and country. Yes we might die in the endeavour, heck we might even succeed, but that does not remove the choice” – Timothy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 For fans of old-fashioned battles 24 juillet 2014
Par Agne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of "Guardians of Magessa" by Peter Last through a LibraryThing Member Giveaways Program in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"Guardians of Magessa" by Peter Last is the first installment in the epic fantasy series "The Birthright Chronicles." Magessa is an imaginary land inhabited by humans, elves, ogres and orcs who worship God Elohim, the creator of the world. The ever declining faith in God and strained relations between the races in Magessa made the land a vulnerable target of Molkekk, an evil sorcerer, who has been waiting for a chance to destroy Elohim's followers. Once a city on Magessa's border is attacked by Molkekk's allies, the faith, courage and skills of Magessa's military cadets are put to the test.

THUMBS UP:

1) Cover.
I absolutely love the cover. It is a great artwork and it captures the spirit of the book so accurately! To be honest, the cover was the main reason I decided to read this book.

2) Author's expertise in old-fashioned weapons, battles and military strategies.
I don't know much about swords, axes, crossbows or any other kinds of weapons or armor used in the old days, but the author surely does. In addition to very descriptive sword fights, this book covers the battle between Magessa and its enemies in such a detail that you actually feel like you are in the battlefield fighting for your life. And the battle is not a simple one, as ridiculously outnumbered defenders have to be creative in order to stay alive and protect their country.

3) End of Volume I.
The ending of this first book is a golden mean: although the whole story is far from over and I am interested to know what's going to happen next, the main events of this book were all sorted out, sparing the reader from a sleepless night.

COULD BE BETTER:

1) Action.
"Guardians of Magessa" is packed with action but it's mostly one kind of action: fighting. For example, in the first third of the book there wasn't much going on except for quite a few sword fights. Unfortunately, the author over-described these fights making them sound way too long and quite boring. Later on the plot did get more thrilling but the bulk of the action was still based on fighting. To be honest, my favorite part of the book was a prologue as I found it way more adventurous.

2) The Bible in disguise?
Don't get me wrong, I liked the emphasis on faith throughout the book and found most ideas quite relevant to the every day life. However, I was quite disappointed with one particular part of the book - the origins of Magessa. I could clearly see the stories taken straight from the Old Testament with few slight changes and new names. Not very original, is it?

VERDICT: 2 out of 5

If you are a fan of fights and old-fashioned battles, it is very likely that you will enjoy ”Guardians of Magessa" much more than I did.

Once I started reading, I did not want to put this book down. I have been looking for a good Christian fantasy to read. I will be looking forward to the next book in the series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Impressive New Young Adult Fantasy Author 8 juillet 2014
Par Tammy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was very impressed with this book as it is written by a young author. The basic concept of good vs. evil is a major theme of the book. It is full of battles of young cadets defending their country. It reminds me of Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia. I am looking forward to reading his next installment in the series. As a librarian I see the pre-teen and teen boys that have difficulty finding books that are of interest to them. I would definitely recommend this series.
