Bringing to mind great writers like Tolkien and George RR Martin Meyerhofer has created a uniue fantasy world in which to immerse yourself Unlike most mainstream writers of today the author fills his world with the same diversity that exists sometimes unacknowledged within our own reality There are different races genders sexualities and even body types within this world In fact his characters are often accepting of these differences than some of the real life eople I have encountered My biggest complaint here was how often the women had to be beautiful It would be nice if female fantasy characters had a Aubrey Beardsley, The Man And His Work physical flaw or two but you can t have everything I supposeIn addition to the truly impressive world building Wytchfire features realistic sword fights a uniue take on elvenesue creatures and their magic and a terrifying entity simply called The NightmareI have also read some of hisoetry books Meyerhofer s background in Jazz Ukulele poetry gives his writing a literary feel He has a way with words that is increasingly rare within his genre Rather thanhoning it in with tired descriptions Meyerhofer creates a lush and complicated Off 13 place in which he grounds the story Even without the well drawn world map it is an easy enoughlace to navigate as we are in good handsIt is worth Amata Means Beloved picking up Iurchased the Kindle version but received an advanced copy of the hysical book The kindle version is nice and doesn t cost much The aperback is also very well made and worth the Juice price In his acknowledgements Meyerhofer refers to himself as a boyhood Tolkein fan It s obvious from reading Wytchfire where his inspirations came from by using multiple races that have to band together to fight a strong foeWhile the inspiration is there Meyerhofer is able to make his own world using a rich history reluctant heroes and a few surprises along the wayThe book is the first of a trilogy and is set up that way There isn t a huge cliffhanger at the end but of the end of one battle while we know the rest of the war is ready to rage onWytchfire may start off a bit slow but the actionicks up fairly uickly with Meyerhofer not dawdling too long to give the reader background information He s able to blend it into the story while continuing with the current actionOne of my favorite arts was the distinction of two strong female characters They held their own against anyone who confronted them and were layered characters My onl I received Wtchfire free in return for my honest review and honestly this is the most AMAZING book The story is so well told that I could literally see the characters in my minds eye There are so many side stories but they all blend and explain each other seemlessly There s even a surprise towards the end I laughed sighedtensed and even wiped a tear away that s how utterly amazing Wytchfire is I originally read this book about a year ago but unfortunately life got in the way and I never ended up writing the review When I saw that book two was coming out I decided to sign up for the tour no matter what setback life had for me this time Note My cat died on me this morning Life darn you shakes fist in furyThis has been one of the hardest reviews for me to write mainly because everything that I want to say on the novel will be giving something away and I would be doing the reader a disservice by not letting them experience each and every moment on their ownI love Meyehofer s writing style His storylines are creative His words are elouent His characters are ones that ull you into the storyline and keep you in it The setting is described so well that you almost feel like you re there And something always happens that changes the story in a way you were not expectingI could not Gudrun put this book down during either read and if you are into epic fantasy novels especially ones that include dragons this is definitely a book that you need toick up AND Michael is an author you need to keep your eye onWell done WELL DONENote I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review Please remember that this review is my opinion based on my Mob Mistress personal impressions of the book We open with Fadarah who is a kind of warrior mage a half breed and a keyerson in the siege of the city The Shel ai control the nightmare that can tear down city walls and if let off its leash completely destroy a city Then we meet Rowen Locke who is a down on his luck wannabe knight He failed his goal in achieving knighthood and then fails to sense a trap on the highway and becomes the victim of a nasty mugging Penniless injured and jaded concerning the bulk of the human race his adventure beginsWow Just wow This was a fun entertaining impressive work of fantasy fiction If you enjoy your Tolkien esue adventures then this is definitely. In a land haunted by the legacy of dead dragons Rowen Locke has been many things orphan gravedigger mercenary All he ever wanted was to become a Knight of Crane and wield a king.
A book for you to check out There was Stud in the Stacks plenty of world buildingeoples from various ethnicities fictional and real along with characters of depth The book had my attention from the beginning because Fadarah seems to genuinely regret what he must do seems a little disgusted at the methods for conuering the city and yet he goes forth and does it Then Rowen Ah the Choosing to Survive poor man walked on stage with so many secrets He was a tantalizing character to follow and watch some of those secrets come into the reader s lightI uite enjoyed the mixing of elements from the legends of King Arthur and feudal Japan The Knightly Order of the Lotus was a nice touch And the action was uite engaging There s sell swords brigands warrior mage etc The average farmer seems to be in some sort of recession which makes sense with war here and there But sprinkled among the action are moments of introspection by the characters so the reader doesn t get battle fatigueWhile I would have liked to see a few female characters it seems I am always saying that I can justretend Rowen or Fadarah is a woman in disguise There were a few typos in my version but it is an early ebook review copy these typos were not enough to distract me from enjoying the overall book Wytchfire sucked me in immediately and long after my family had gone to bed I was still reading I Robin Hood paid for it the next day but the book was totally worth the exhaustion and I m a woman who loves her sleep Wytchfire is fastaced engaging horrifying and includes elements of magic complex and exemplary world building and believable characters you either love or hate There seems to be no in between but maybe that s just me Michael Meyerhofer s writing style and storytelling is intriguing uniue and beautiful in the way he immerses you completely within the world of his characters I felt like I was there enjoying armchair travel and that always means a book is a HUGE hit with me One last thought Fadarah s Nightmare is one I wouldn t want to meet in even my darkest craziest nightmares Just the description of this beastly creation chilled me Fantasy enthusiasts will love Wytchfire and I give it 5 stars without the slightest hesitation When going through books on GR and you find a book with just 20 reviews and an average rating of 447 you just have to give it a try Because there s books with 10000 reviews and an average rating of less than 39 Some books while extremely Felipa popular are totally shit Twilight for example While some virtually unknown books deserve to be at the top of book lists Wytchfire belongs to the latter category There s lots of really good authors out there While some authors shoot to fame on the back of topublishers like Tor and Gollancz others have to face a tougher and difficult climb to the top Michael Meyerhofer belongs to the latter category Wytchfire is one of the best books I ve read this year and I ve read some spanking good books this year The writing is better than good I think comparisons are due here to give a better The Vavasour Macbeth picture of just how good Its better than Mark Lawrence It s better than Joe Abercrombie Mind you this is my opinion so if you think otherwise no ualms I just advise you read this book first before coming to any conclusion Thelot is brilliant Doesn t take long to ignite It s fast The Blueprint (English Edition) paced Very little by way of the idle chitchat that makes the books in the Lightbringer series so long It s actionacked from start to finish So much action you re swept away So much action you lose track of time while reading Everything is so vivid Employing a lot of magic in fantasy writing can backfire as it can deviate too much from the Crisis of the Strauss Divided plot This book is an exception to the rule While magic heavy it doesn t distract from the storyline And the book is really magic heavy As magic heavy as the Sword of Truth and LoTR series The book combines a magic heavylot with a fast The Master Masons of Chartres paced storyline allenned in beautiful flowing writing Then there s the characters While other readers may see it differently the characters are kind of gray There s two sides Each fighting for what they feel is the right thing One side is wreaking revenge on the other due to the amount of evils it has suffered at the hands of the other over a long VARSITY ABDL (Age Play, Forced Regression, Enema, Domestic Discipline, Spanking Romance) period of time It s not its fault imo I d do the same The other side is on the defensive withlenty of conflicts on their own Road House - The Novel part Unlike most other books the conflict is not fixed but rather flexible It contracts and retracts with the movement of thelot It gives the entire thing the Gnosis picture of something that changes its shape with the influence of external factors I don t know how best to explain it Just read it for yourselves if you want to know Infact that s my recommendation to everyone who reads this review I immediatelyroceed to book 2 Th.

Is is an author on the up and Wytchfire is a fantastic read that you won t regret The main character is not your regular epic fantasy fare and I love the originality and the instant depth you feel to the character from their first appearance This isn t a brave warrior a noble Left to Die-a First Hand Account of Life in the Superdome during Hurricane Katrina prince or someone on a uestit s a realerson that has hopes but is a long way from themI loved the story and the way the crumbling world is a character in it s own right You find yourself drawing mental maps and wondering what is over there The Dolphin Diaries Bind-Up politics a Book source A review copy wasrovided in exchange for an honest reviewWar is marching across Ruun and the Free Cities are falling As the army reaches Lyos it appears that Fadarah General of the Throng has made a serious tactical error Or has he The battle for Ruun has been waging on for months but the battle for Lyos is the The Wingman Chronicles pivotal one Where does Silwren Rowen Locke and the Isle Knights fit into this grand scheme Are theyieces falling into Flood Legends place or monkey wrenches gumming up the works Wytchfire is full to the brim with epic fantasy It s a rich new world for me to explore with several different kinds ofeople magic fantastic history and medieval type settings but war famine disease The Best Of Saint Louis poverty andrejudice have made it into an ugly The Brother-Offended Checklist place Told from several POVs the threads of this story are slowly woven into the beginnings of a complex tapestry By the time this first book of the trilogy ends I have a better understanding of where this story is heading And I have a feeling it s going to get a whole lot worse before it gets betterThe writing is superb It flows so smoothly and uickly that it took no time at all to be lost in the tale The characters are well developed and very real I felt as if I could glance up and see them standing in front of me I especially like Rowen but there are others I like as well Even the villains are well not likeableer se but they ull me in two directions At times I loathe them then they do something to make me ause and say yeah I can see why they are doing what they are doing However what they are doing is Detour (Something in Common, pretty damn fucked up So conflicted much There are very rarelyeople who fit into an all or nothing category People are shades of grey and those are the best characters to read about They make me think what would I do if I were them Could I go that farThis is an excellent start to a wonderful epic fantasy and I look forward to reading about Rowen Silwren Shade Fadarah Aeko and all the others as the next stage in the war begins Plus you know there are swords What can I say I have a thing for swords D I received Wytchfire as a gift from author Michael Meyerhofer in exchange for a fair review of my own work and am I ever grateful that I did Not just that he マジック・ツリーハウス〈1〉恐竜の谷の大冒険 provided fair critiue of my book I am but that I got to experience one gem of a novel that I might have otherwise missedSo what do you get when you take twoarts Game of Thrones one Bear Creek Road part Lord of the Rings and meld them together with a giant helping of superb storytelling Wytchfire that s what While I will admit that I am a SciFi kind of guy my adolescent days were spent reading a lot of fantasy Epic dark Arthurian you name it and as such I was intrigued when Mr Meyerhofer approached me with this novel So much so that I bubbled it to the top of my 800 strong To Be Read list and focused on only it over theast few days when spare time allowed of courseMeyerhofer s literary expertise and colorful world building make his characters leap off the age ulling you into the story from the start I found that when I had to ut it down to focus on other things in my life I was anxious to get back and read further No small feat as most novels even the classics sometimes suffer from drag for the first 50 100 ages No such Captives of New Pompeii (New Pompeii, problem in Wytchfire thankfully The author devised an enthrallinglot filled with lenty of action suspense some clever twists and most importantly multidimensional characters After all a story is nothing without character depth Kudos to you Mr MeyerhoferAnyone that has read my reviews knows that I am a notoriously tough cookie especially when it comes to the olish that an authoreditor Beard Necessities (Winston Brothers, puts to their finished work Mistakes slow down stories But I can say with brimming satisfaction that Wytchfire is one of the mostolished novels I ve read to date Nary a mistake to be found and it flows so organically that the reader doesn t suffer from fatigue after reading its sizeable 353 Alfie Outdoors pages It became evident to me from the onset of this story that the author hasut a lot of time and The Agile Team Handbook, 2nd Edition painstaking effort into theresentation of it and I applaud him for a job well doneSo congratulations Mr Meyerhofer on being the recipient of my first 5 star rating Can t wait to read the next installment. Uel of desire and revenge steel and sorcery And for one disgraced man who would be a knight in a world where no one is blameless the time has come to decide which side he’s on.
