Présentation de l'éditeur

Myranda is a young woman more interested in staying alive than being a hero. Orphaned by a continent-spanning war that has gone on for decades too long and shunned for failing to support it, she has been on the move since she was only a child. One can hardly blame her when she thinks that the chance discovery of a fallen soldier's priceless cargo is the moment that will change her life. No one could predict just how great that change would be. It will lead her through an adventure of rebels and generals, of wizards and warriors, and of beasts both noble and monstrous. Each step of the way will take her closer to the truth of her potential, of the war, and of the fate of her world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A pleasant surprise 21 mai 2011
Par Yankee Fan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book showed up as a free download yesterday. I woke up this morning and figured I would start a few pages of this book over coffee. Seven hours later, I finished the book and bought the 2nd book in the series.
I'm struggling to find the words to describe why I enjoyed the book. It was a book about war, magic, wizards but it was done very differently than other books of that genre. The character development was well done. The good characters had flaws and the bad characters had redeeming qualities. And, most importantly, I never found myself in skimming mode. And, of course, the ultimate positive review of any book is to immediately purchase a 2nd book by that author (which I did). If you are a fan of fantasy fiction, you will probably enjoy this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book. Worth the read for simple fantasy escapism. 11 juin 2011
Par Damon Wells - Publié sur Amazon.com

Ok, first things first. I picked up this book via my Kindle because of its price (free). And for a free ebook, it is more than worth its cost, which is your time. I would not have been upset if I had paid a small amount to purchase this book.

Now, onto the book review itself. This is a simple tale that relies upon the tried and true fantasy formula of a "nobody" coming into their own as a previously undiscovered prodigy has been used by many fantasy authors. This formula therefore requires either significant character development or a type of twist to the story to rise to the five star rating. While this first book utilizes this formula, the character development is still somewhat lacking and even the "education" process wherein the heroine in this book learns to control her power is simplistic and repetitive. If the author was attempting to write fantasy targeted at a child or young teenager, this might be appropriate, but I did not get that impression. I believe this was fantasy that was to be consumed by an adult audience, therefore the lack of sophistication compels me to remove a star from five to four.

So why did I give this book a three star rating? Editing! It is a shame that a good tale should suffer from clunky language, and both grammatical and spelling errors. A professional editor could definitely assist the author in polishing this story. At that point I would be happy with a four star rating for this story.

So overall, as it currently stands, I give this tale three out of five stars. A good read, one that I would not mind paying a small sum for, and definitely worth the current cost of only your time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic! 21 mai 2011
Par A. K. Bryant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This was a free download I happened upon and was pleased to discover that it wasn't a blurb to entice me to buy the rest of the book. It's also a fairly long story at 8000 plus on the Kindle. It's a page turner and a fascinating read. Many times I read a free download but choose not to pursue the next books in the series, not so with this story! Also, the books are very reasonably priced at 2.99 to make it a bargain not often seen on Kindle, sad to say. Thank you for the wonderful books Mr. Lallo!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Had potential, but I had some concerns...2 1/2 to 3 Stars 6 octobre 2011

"The Book of Deacon" is the first of a fantasy adventure trilogy by author Joseph Lallo. This is Kindle book that is a 586 Kb download and was free from Amazon.com at the time of writing this review.

SPOILERS

On a foreign land, the Perpetual War has raged on and on for 150 years between an alliance of three smaller northern countries and larger, stronger country (Tresson) of the south.
Myranda, our heroine, is against this ongoing war (an opinion contrary to the popular positive feelings towards the war by the majority of the populace). Shunned as an outcast for her beliefs, she stumbles across a magical sword and soon after meets a person by the name of Leo (Lain). Unbeknownst to her, these two seemingly unrelated events will change her life forever.

END SPOILERS populace

The Pros:
1.) the idea for the overall plot was intriguing.

2.) initially well written with an engaging style.

3.) interesting and intriguing cover art.

The Cons:
1.) nearly all (with only the rare exception) of this story is told from Myranda's POV. This was initially ok, but I found I grew tired of her character after a while...I began to look forward to the occasional but brief encounters with her main adversary, General Trigorah Teloran.

2.) *spoiler*...the latter third of this book got really bogged down with Myranda's studying the main elements of magic (fire, earth, air and water) from the Masters. Myranda's brilliance was beyond doubt and she'd pass all her tests with the highest results ever. Unfortunately, while the outcome was never in question from the beginning, this section took up almost the latter third of the book, while dragging out the obvious.

3.) *spoiler*...areas of questionable realism/believability. For example, early on Myranda is gravely wounded and is rescued by two resistance fighters. They don't have the skill to heal her so they send her to a wizard that can...now get this...they send her, gravely ill, ALONE and WALKING on a five day journey to the wizard's place...simply unbelievable. You know it's hard garner any strong feelings for a story when the author puts in something like that. There were other things as well, but maybe not as prominent as this incident.

4.) no map...a story geographically diverse enough to warrant one.

Impression:
I liked the overall idea for the story...the beginning captivated and held my interest completely. However, as the story focused so intently and continually on Myranda, I started to become bored and even a little annoyed at times with her character.

A little more time and development of Deacon's, Lain's or Teloran's story/character might have given the reader a welcome break from the ongoing continuing saga of Myranda.

And as mentioned above in 2.) the outcome was so obvious, that the last part of the book was, in many areas, easily skimmable.

Despite an enticing ending for this book, I'm not sure I could take another book so dedicated to just one individual (at least not this one).

Could I recommend this book...with some reservation, yes...it did have some good moments, especially early on.

As it is 2 1/2 to 3 Stars.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Yes and no, but mostly no. 11 octobre 2013
Par Kellin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Every book with a cliffhanger ending should come with a warning emblazoned on the cover. Nothing infuriates me more than spending hours of my precious time reading through a book, only to find I've been cheated of a satisfying conclusion to the story. Especially when I have not enjoyed the journey, but only read on because I'd already invested so much time that I wanted to know how it turned out.

The book is so rife with horrid grammar that I was totally distracted all through the first chapters. Because tense changes occur inexplicably, I could hardly surmise whether an event was happening in present, had happened in the past, or would happen some time in the future. Strangely, the grammar improved as the story moved on.

The story starts on an exciting note and carries on for a while, but then comes a long, flat section that I could hardly drag myself through. The main character is just too, too perfect for my taste, and she seemed to regress in maturity as time went on. First I pegged the novel as Young Adult, then Middle Grade.

I really wanted to like this book. I think the author could have woven a wonderful tale from the interesting elements he put forth. Unfortunately, it seems that he just didn't take the time to clean it up. The Book of Deacon reads like a first draft. . . and then you come to a non-end.
