Step into the wayback machine; this tale takes place long before The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, when the First Dark Lord, Morgoth, sought dominion over all of Middle-Earth. It's an easier read than some of the other scholarly works of Tolkien and a much more enjoyable read as a result.
Perilous Seas accelerates the pace of the series with some of the best storytelling and character development to date.
A fantastical, family-friendly horror film that has all the right elements for some seriously spooky fun.
A slow start to the series with minimal character development, I'm nevertheless giving this one three rockets because it does build a good foundation for the remainder of the series.
Overall a slow read with some confusing plotlines which is saved by some good character building and the promise of the larger story forming for our two main characters.
It's never easy saying goodbye to such engaging characters, but I was left with a satisfying conclusion and the fulfillment of many character arcs so I'm happy.
Great premise but a failure to deliver on well developed characters and a storyline that fell back onto child antics too often left a bitter taste in my mouth on this one.
This final book in the A Man of His Word series should have ended with a bang. Instead, it was barely a fizzle. A good series, but not great, and not one I would say is a must-read.
If you’re looking for a collection that leans more towards the classic style of Lovecraft then I think Acolytes of Cthulhu is a worthy addition to your TBR list.
"War. Magic. A lover's betrayal. A dark secret lies beneath them all." So begins a tale of mystery and intrigue and some seriously powerful magic.
A high quality collection of short stories with a uniquely evil perspective.
