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
Par Tammy J. McArthur - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
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.

***Warning This Review Contains Spoilers***
***I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***

This is not a bad review but its not a good one its the type of review I hate to write because the author of this book spent a lot of time and hard work writing this book and I don't like to discourage anybody. Being a writer is hard despite what many people think. I love reading and I truly appreciate writers for feeding my "addiction". That being said I can only hope that the author takes my words as constructive criticism because this is not an attack just the honest opinion of an avid reader.

My expectations when reading this book were the same I always have when reading any book. I wanted to be compelled by this book. I wanted to finish this book as if I was waking from a dream.

I will start with the prologue which was entirely too long, I converted to file from the format the author sent me in order to read it on my nook HD. On my nook the prologue was more than one hundred pages because of the conversion I'm not sure how many pages the prologue is actually however even on my nook a prologue should be short sweet and to the point. Just long enough to intrigue the reader, without giving away the story. In my opinion a prologue should be between 3 and 5 pages at the max even on my nook.

At the opening of the story in chapter one the author leaves hints of those characters that played parts in the prologue. He also introduces Senndra who it seems is the child who was saved and lets the reader know that she is an integral character in the story.

Unfortunately is a part of this story which is just completely unoriginal. Now just let me say I was raised Baptist but I am not highly religious, I am not against religion I believe that every religion has some basis in truth and that us humans may never know which basis is the true original one but that all religions are mostly based on the same concept of god even though they have different cultural attributes. That being said I don’t mind religion any religion in a story….if it makes sense, is original, flows well, and is not “preachy”. Unfortunately Guardians of Magessa missed the mark on this.

The back story for Magessa is the story of The Hebrews, Moses and Ramses the only change is the names of the land and the characters. I was very disappointed with this because this is a fantasy novel every aspect of this story should have been home grown in the mind and imagination of the author.

The biggest problem with the author using the back story of the Hebrews is that it just doesn’t mesh well at all, in one hand we have the Hebrews in the other hand we have Elves, Dragon, Orcs, Griffins, Dwarves and magic. I’m not sure why the author did not create a back story from his imagination since magic and these magical creatures had already been introduced before the reader gets the Magessa back story.

The story of the Hebrews just seemed completely forced in and out of place and it therefore made the religious aspect of the book feel forced.

If the author wanted to use a basis of religion that is real and use an origin story like that of Moses there was no need to put it in the story considering that almost everyone from any religion pretty much knows of it, there was no need to change name of character and lands.
The origin story, aside from being completely unoriginal, was as if it was copied directly from the bible, this in my opinion gave that part of the story a plagiaristic vibe. I AM NOT ACCUSING THE AUTHOR OF PLAGIRISING THIS STORY! Every other aspect of the book seems completely original.

Moving on…..Senndra Receives her Dragon a dragon breed that has not been seen in 500 hundred years this lead me to believe that her Dragon was a significantly import aspect of the story. However Senndra brings him to her room feeds him and then we hear no more about him for the rest of the story it’s as if the author lost his train of thought.

During the battle with the dwarves, Senndra is surprised by Lemin & Timothy’s use of magic. This did not make any sense to me considering that she was raised by Jothnial who was an Elf who used magic although she was not aware Timothy used magic she should have known magic use is possible and Lemin has Elf blood and she should not have been surprised that he could use magic. Also why did Timothy wait so long to use his magic in the battle?

As I continued to read I really felt the book had an unbalanced amount of religion to actual fantasy. Just when it seems as if the fantasy aspect was gaining momentum, the book gets “preachy” again. I felt that the two aspects of the book were completely separate when they should have been completely intertwined. This as a reader left me detached from the book; needless to say my expectations as a reader were not met.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Birthright Chronicles: Guardians of Magessa 20 juin 2014
Par Rachel - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a fantastic story by a guy who is sure to become a best seller!

The action is fast-paced, the characters are likeable (and kick some serious butt), and the plot is intriguing. It's an epic battle between good and evil that's chock-full of dragons, ogres, elves, and dwarves. There's sword fights, dragon riding, and battles. Friendships are formed and strengthened, secrets are revealed, and there's a tinge of romance in the air. I couldn't put this book down until I finished, and I can't wait for the next installment!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for both new and long-time fantasy fans 29 juin 2014

A great primer to learning sword-fighting moves. (...just kidding!) In all seriousness, this was a very fun read. I'm normally not a fan of fantasy, but such a strong female lead character was too good to pass up. GAHH.

I believe The Birthright Chronicles series to have a bright future, as it walks the fine line of being highly accessible to all kinds of demographics. For instance, there is action and LOTR-esque creatures for Tolkein fans, a strong base of hope and faith for loyal readers of C.S. Lewis, and magic & even a Norbert-like baby dragon (EEE!) for Potter lovers. I was continually immersed in the book as the focus moves from cadets' interactions to military strategy to Magessa's history. Not to mention, there's even subtle sarcasm. Aw yeah.

Verdict: Movie, please. :)
