wow that’s a mouthful.
Anyways I officially love my kindle because i have found so many new
authors that i love and probably wouldn’t have found otherwise.
This ‘Saga’ (Why only two books… don’t want it to end…) Was written
By K.C. May who, according to her about the author page, has tried a
million and one cool things and has decided to become a full time
So yeah… Thank you very much for making this decision.
So we Start off with Gavin Kinshield in a cave fun of bats. The last
place he wants to be is in that cave… it’s been calling to him all his
life. However he seems to know that if he lets it continue it’ll drive
him to madness. He closes his eyes, says a single word and a Gem falls
from a Mystic tablet that had been placed in the cave a few hundred
With that simple action… Gavin knew that he was destined to be king.
SO yeah…. i love this premise, i love the short Chapter which are
great for my daily bus rides… i love how the story is extremely
character driven…. Hell i even love the fact that we spend a lot of time
with the main villain… you don’t see that often since you want to be in
the dark but it just adds to the tension.
The book isn’t perfect though… for such a character driven story i
felt some characters were pushed to the side… specifically Arlet and the
twins who were mentioned in the first few chapters…. then never see
again… kinda hoping to see them in book 2 since any action no matter how
small should further the plot.
but yeah… good pacing, good story, great characters… can’t wait to
read book two and the novella she has for free on her website http://www.kcmay.com
she also wrote a sci-fi series (or perhaps it’s just one book,
haven’t looked into it) called The Venom of Vipers………. i wont be reading
it, i’m sure it’s really good….but it deals with plagues and yes the
characters trying to save people but really? i can’t do it…. so i’ll
