- Flight of the Hawk
on Dec. 21, 2010
This is the continuation of the Storyteller series by G. R. Grove, volume two of the first trilogy, in what is hoped will be a much longer series. Flight of the Hawk continues from where volume one left off, and, in fact, repeats one of the stories, from the first book, but does so as if that story is being told at a later time than the first telling. Young Gwernin storyteller and his friend Neirin the bard continue the journey they began in volume one of this series.
Like Storyteller, Flight of the Hawk is a series of intricately interwoven short story chapters which can both stand alone (but why miss out on the larger story... begin with book one: Storyteller instead of here) and form a larger, complete story, well fashioned so that the chapter/stories fit together like the feathers of a bird's wings. Flight of the Hawk is well written and smoothly paced; to say it is a pleasure to read is probably the biggest understatement I've made in all 100+ reviews that I've written so far.
The Storyteller series is recommended for most everyone 16 and up, but is an especially ideal read for those who love historical fiction, and for those who like a bit of fantasy now and then. This review is based on the Kindle version I downloaded from Smashwords.com, which was given to me free by the author. This review has been simultaneously posted on Dragon Views, LibraryThing, Amazon.com Smashwords, and YABooks Central.
