To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have read the first three books. In each one the author portrays all the females as smarter than the males. Stronger than the males and can twist men around their fingers any time they wish. This includes Kings, fathers, husbands and any other male. All the females use underhanded methods to manipulate all the males. Equality of the genders is a fine idea but the author has created a world where only females ever have the correct view of things. It is main theme in all three books. It gets very tiresome. The main character finds he has a type of nature magic however in 7 years of having this power barely learns anything about it. In the story his grandparents are supposedly teaching him about this power/magic. Even though the author claims the main character is so gifted in the power he is one in ten million the main character barely scratches the surface in 7 years. The story drags and drags. I finally gave up and will not be buying anything from this author again.
Just finished reading the third book in the series and like the two previous I very much like the action and progression of the characters and story. This is a short read though I want the story to continue and would love for the next book to be longer so we can see how Thomas is doing and how his "nature/will" is growing as well of when he announces he is Lord of the Highlands or faces the Shadow Lord.
Decent addition to the series, thou i wish it was.longer i would have have the book 5 stars but after the Raptor and his friend along with with the other highlander broke out of the mine. The book felt really rushed. Still a good book but could have been a lot.better
I love a fantastic tale. This book has it all - horrible beasts, "terrorising" evil, lovable hero's and shape changing magic. The author gives Thomas, the hero, Olympic style training, an ancestry to envy and a sense of humor.
