Smashwords book reviews by DR Racey

  • Summer Storm on March 19, 2013

    I have been focusing on novellas and short novels this week and picked up this book as a free read from Smashwords.com. Overall I was very pleased with the find and the time I spent reading this novella. The book starts out with Falen, the princess to the Kingdom of Variss in the mountains. She is out of the city without her father’s permission and is checking on her experiments that she hopes will get her into an Academy of Science. While out on the mission she finds an old man floating in the river and rescues him from what would have surely been a cold wet death. Falen brings the man to her home in Varsiss and later finds out that he is a wandering monk that is spreading the word of the Lords of Light. In time Falen’s father, the King, accepts the old man into his council and appoints him as the High Priest of the Lords of Light for the Kingdom of Varsiss. Turmoil begins to surround Falen as her father begins to change. She blames the changes on the High Priest Nashir which causes more turmoil within the city. The book is technically sound with few errors and flows seamlessly as you continue through this novella of 26,000 words. Elizabeth Baxter does well in progressing through the story and providing details so the reader can understand their surroundings and the people interacting with Falen. This novella does well in giving you a basis of understanding prior to starting the Wrath of the Northmen series. I give the book 4 out of 5 Stars and look forward to reading the Wrath of the Northmen series. The only downside is that there should be more details of the relationship building between Falen, the King, and Nashir. A few more details could be provided to enhance the turmoil and emotions between the three which would increase the overall enjoyment of the novella.
