Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

It has been one hundred years since the end of the Thrall Wars, when the four dread Thrall Masters wreaked devastation across the land of Thac. The world has been relatively quiet since, but dark things have started to rise again around the little seaport of Ravenford. Monstrous bandits stalk the woods to the west, huge creatures terrorize farms to the north, and a dark presence has taken up refuge in the ancient ruins to the south.**

The town's only hope may lay in four newcomers: a fearless young warrior with blades of fire, an elven wizard as deadly to his friends as his enemies, a cynical halfling who just may be an assassin, and a quiet gnome whose very touch can heal. Banded together with the tall warrior, Titan, and her mercenary companion, the novice heroes set out to confront these creatures of darkness. Yet they quickly find they are facing more than just a few rogue monsters, for there is a greater force behind them all.

From eerie woods to underground caves to haunted ruins, the young heroes encounter terrifying monsters, creatures of the night, and demonic sorcery. Can they stand against the forces of darkness, or will they too fall prey to the evil that has targeted Ravenford.

**Revised Edition 2016

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay, so, I want my own Lloyd Action Figure Doll 27 avril 2015
Par Red Sapphire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
F.P. Spirit unfolds this story in a way that reveals the nature of the characters by showing them in action with one another. There are few large blocks of back story or character exposition. The absence of these telling-techniques keeps the story moving forward while allowing readers to get to know the characters. There is a good balance of interior monologue on the part of each character and enough personal history is provided to let readers connect with each of the principal players. I really like the way these characters are getting to know each other’s quirks, faults and strengths through situations where they are called upon to work together to win the battles they encounter. The magic and creatures are wonderful and never ending. Something new and entertaining is introduced in every conflict. I won’t give away any specifics, but I do have my preferred creatures, based on their uniqueness. It’s obvious from the title of my review who my favorite character is, and I do expect to be notified when Lloyd’s action figure is available for purchase. However, I really like this entire team, and my second favorite is Seth. This book is pretty much non-stop action, and when the team rests, the reader is ready for a rest also. Lots of interesting secondary characters people this fiction, and I think this is a great adventure book for young readers.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Fantasy Escape! 17 février 2015
Par Tamie D. E. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is a perfect escape novel for fantasy fans. No overwhelming angst--the book doesn't take itself too seriously. No long, drawn-out descriptive scenes that leave you waiting for action. On the contrary, the action starts immediately and carries on throughout the book.
The book reminded me of Dungeons and Dragons (which I will admit I played once or twice many, many years ago). But Spirit brought the characters to life with wit and humor.
I saw some reviewers wished for more romance, but I thought The Ruins on Stone Hill was exactly as advertised—a fantasy adventure. Much like Tolkien, Spirit does not concentrate on romance, although there are few hints of it here and there. That suited me just fine; I didn’t feel romance would add anything to the story.
Another reviewer mentioned the lack of strong female characters. Now I am a big fan of books with strong lead female characters. But to be honest, I prefer that type of book when written by a female author. I had no problem with any of Spirit’s female characters—they weren’t simpering, wimpy idiots by any means. They simply weren’t a part of the band of warriors (his main characters). I didn’t miss having a woman in the warrior group. His characters, male and female, were rich and multi-dimensional.
At times, I felt the word choice and speech patterns were inconsistent with the medieval fantasy setting, but overall this didn’t detract from the engaging story. He hooked me enough to want to read the rest of the series. (And as busy as I am, that’s saying a lot!)
If you like clean, action, fantasy adventure with elves, wizards, orcs, and a variety of other less familiar fantastical creatures, you’ll love this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Could use a bit more substance 28 mars 2015
Par D.H. St. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Ruins on Stone Hill (Heroes of Ravenford Book 1) is about a bunch of guys getting together to have adventures. Using both physical weapons and magic, they fight off orcs, giants, golems and wicked wizards, usually destroying the bad creatures in the process. It’s a bit of a romp, and as such, it’s enjoyable. Unfortunately, I look for a bit more in a fantasy novel.
To me, fantasy novels offer the potential of placing a hero (male or female) on a quest that we as readers can identify with, allowing us to cheer those heroes on and celebrate when obstacles are overcome. The quest should involve something of moral or ethical value. A grail. The destruction of an object that could allow the baddest guy around to rule the world. Something worth fighting and dying for. In this book, the first quest to map a keep and potentially recover a scroll for a probably good wizard is taken on with a promise of payment in the end. To me, money doesn’t quite meet my criteria for a quest.
In addition, there doesn’t seem to be much of a plot. Jumping from one adventure to the next, with little or no connection between them (save for the fact the two most important people in the town—the mayor and the wizard—are the ones sending them out) does not a plot make. Which leaves me thinking that the only plot in this is what it takes to pull this group together. And for a story about adventures, we sure skipped the third one fast. They started out, and then they were home again.
As a woman and a writer of fantasy myself, I found the stereotypes of the few female characters a bit too much to handle. Kailay, the barmaid at the local establishment, has doe-eyes for Lloyd, the big, strong, handsome human in the group. She is “buxom” and referred to twice in three paragraphs as she is introduced as a “young girl.” That really got to me. She’s not a child (I hope). And then, when Kailay recognizes that Lloyd has eyes for another, she completely falls apart. Be still my feminist heart (and mouth). Three other women of minor prominence have equally boxed-in roles—all of them noble, beautiful, well-educated and practically perfect. And then there’s the half-human, half-orc warrior woman who shows up briefly, fights valiantly (a little Xena warrior princess there), but, being on the wrong side, cannot be allowed to survive. Now, she was interesting.
On the picky side, I found some of the language to be a little too modern. To me, a fantasy set in a typically semi-medieval world should watch the modern clichés and metaphors. I was jarred out of the story several times with phrases such as “picture perfect” (which to me implies a camera being involved somewhere).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Book Review of The Ruins On Stone Hill by F.P. Spirit 12 mars 2015
Par Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book told a very fascinating story, but first, let me point out two factors in the story that I considered a kill joy. The first is the way the author constantly flashed back to explain why a character in the story could perform some action, which we were not previously told the character could perform. The second is the way the author used myriads of small details in the story, details that could have been left to the imagination of the reader, details that the reader should have been allowed to fill in. Now, these details did nothing but prolonged the length of the story, and made the story unnecessarily too long.

The story, as I already said was very fascinating. I got to meet creatures of different natures binding together to work together for the good of all. In a world populated by the good and the bad, where the bad is constantly looking for ways to do the good in, it was a pleasure to see how these creatures, both big and small, humans included, combined and complemented their different skills to root out evil. I was warmed mostly by how Seth was always the one that dispatched the wizards. These dark spirits never saw him coming.

I enjoyed the read, even if I would have liked the story to be compressed a bit to shorten it. In other words; say what you have to say without stretching the story.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Several adventures in this first book 11 mai 2017

Anyone who enjoys epic Fantasy should grab the first book in this series. I enjoyed meeting each of the Heros and learning about their world. Several adventures are included in this first book but the action doesn't stop there, since they must learn who is behind all the problems facing Ravenford. Loved the the book and started reading #2 already.
