  • The Circle of Sorcerers: A Mages of Bloodmyr Novel: Book #1 on May 09, 2012

    Wow- a gem of a novel! I read this in two nights- couldn't put it down. The dialogue is natural and the characters are believable. Kittrell has a gift for creating and fleshing out a storyscape in which his characters ebb and flow though both internal and external conflict. He maintains a great balance of *what* story and plot he is telling, with *how* he tells it. Many authors concentrate on the latter and we the readers end up drowning in a sea of adjectives. Not so here. I felt my perceptions of the protagonist shift from like, to distaste, to worry, and back to like again. I am beginning the sequel tonight- I hope he brings it like he did with this one! (I received this book via a LibraryThing giveaway in exchange for an honest review).
