It is time for another book review and this time I want to tell you about Rojuun by John H. Carroll. I quite enjoyed this little flight of fantasy. Rojuun is John first book, and also the first in a three part series. John is a natural storyteller, and sets up an interesting cast of characters. There is the rogue thief, the ghost of a long dead knight, the dragon in human form, and the naive country girl with a serious talent for magic.
John sends this unlikely troupe out into a magical forest filled with druids, abandoned cities, castles, and underground cities built by alien creatures. This is a rollicking good tale with dangers lurking around every corner for our adventurers. Great fun.
You can find Rojuun here:
The only rough spots here are the unpronounceable names and occasionally a little too much description, but these things are minor. I give this five stars for a debut novel. A nice fun read.
Hi folks, it’s time for another book review. This time I want to tell you about A Breath of Hope by Robert E. Taylor. I really like reading the work of new authors. Sometimes you find a real gem, and this book is one of those.
The hero, Hamilton, is a rather practical man, but a man with limited patience. He’s a likable fellow in spite of himself. Against his better judgement, he accepts a post as chief of security on a long range space ship.
Hamilton recruits a crew of two, a professional thief and a battle scarred mercenary. Together they try to solve the mysteries and intrigue aboard the ship. It is not an easy task and it keeps you guessing right up to the end. This is a great story and these characters cry out for more action. Is there a sequel in the works? I hope there is. Really good stories deserve five stars and A Breath of Hope gets them.
Keep watching for my next book, Gudrun. It is the final installment in the St. John’s Series. Coming in March.
