About Julian Saheed

Stalking the medieval corridors and halls of the castles in Germany and the Czech republic, visions of brave knights and lord and ladies feasting in their halls cemented themselves in my mind. There was only one choice left to me, to write my own Fantasy stories. A passion fueled by the books that I read growing up from authors such as David Eddings, Raymond E Feist, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.

Yes - this is an excellent book. And the next two parts of The Valerious Chronicles are even better. It should be a bestseller. Kudos to Mr. Saheed. Greetings from Poland!

Solid fantasy, Smashwords-style. Good vs. evil, involving magic and gods, kings and queens, captains and soldiers... Lots of characters, and viewpoints jump around. That's difficult to write! You can tell it's indie but author shows potential. There are typos but the amount is manageable.

The character development is a bit rough, they seem to be out of place at times. Other books that follow a single character (or a group that usually stays together) captivate readers more easily. Book 2 wasn't an instant buy for me, but I will check it out.

I was torn between hurrying through to read the next book as soon as it's out or savouring the world Saheed created...

Lovely world and characters, definitely an author to keep an eye on

I don't read fantasy, actually I haven't read any fiction for over 15 yrs,!! I didn't exactly have high expectations being a non-fiction reader....it did take me two chapters to fully immerse myself, but then I was hooked!!

Loved it and can't wait for the next instalment!!

Highly recommended.
