Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5June 11, 2009Jill WilliamsonOregonAge: 25-34Gender: femaleKing Jekoniah and Prince Kiriath are out riding around Castle Shiralla when they are ambushed by Grishnaki. The king is taken captive. The prince returns home to inform his mother and sister of what happened. A Grishnaki ambassador comes to Shiralla to offer the enemy terms. They will trade the man-king back for the secret of crafting steel.Prince Kiriath knows that this price is too high. If their enemy, who are already larger and live longer, were to learn the secret of steel, they would annihilate the people of Shiralla. The ambassador gives the queen seven days to decide, which gives Prince Kiriath seven days to make it to Grishnaki land and rescue his father.This was a fun medieval fantasy. My kind of story, really. I liked Kiriath, his sister, and his friend, Brand quite a bit. The dialogue in this story was fun. There were a few scenes where the adventurers encountered strange creatures: flying snakes and living vines. I wasnt prepared for that and felt like I was suddenly in a different story where these things were possible. Maybe some comment of such fantastical beings in the beginning of the story would help these later scenes feel like they belonged in the same world. The story includes a very realistic battle and plants some interesting developments that lead me to wonder if a sequel might be planned. I hope so. It would be fun to read more about Prince Kiriath. Recommended.
Ron5 Stars Out Of 5January 27, 2009RonI love a good fantasy, but a lot of secular fantasy stories contain scenes that I as a Christian wish weren't there. But this is a great story with nothing objectionable. Awesome battle scene! Looks like the first in a series; is it?
Mark5 Stars Out Of 5January 21, 2009MarkA gripping story of very real virtues for meditation(Philippians 4:8) presented in fiction. I read it in two settings - not because I'm a fast reader, but because the story creates great anticipation and desire to continue. Sequel?!
Bev5 Stars Out Of 5January 21, 2009BevFantastic Read! This book was a fantasy similar in genre and style to the Lord of the Rings or the Chronicles of Narnia. The plot was well-developed and thick with intrigue. Would recommend this book to all fantasy lovers.
