My new favorite blogger Only Me Am I posted a longer review of Huntsman on his blog and gave me permission to share it on mine!
Never had a guest Blogger before and do not know the proper introductory etiquette…so…um… Wonder Guest Blogger Powers…ACTIVATE!
I picked up the sample eBook and unlike so many that give you the title page and maybe the table of contents this gives you four chapters! After the first chapter I was intrigued after the second chapter I grew enthralled after chapter three I couldn’t put it down. I purchased the book and was not disappointed.
The story follows three trails that of Eyulf, a Mage who through an accident destroys his home and disfigures himself. The second Jaakko, a huntsman and his determination to hunt down a vicious beast that devastated his village. The last story we follow Avitus a soldier/sailor who becomes stranded in a new northern land lost to his profession, an older gentleman, finds his way into a kings service.
As the stories progress we see the world unfold with a coming threat. I can see that as I wait for book two to come out, that the stories will further intertwine.
This story is a very interesting view of the fantasy genre the interesting use of magic being tied to old Swedish folklore of rune-singers somehow singing the elements into shape and form.
All in all by the end of the book it left me wanting more leaves me wondering where the story will go. I highly recommend it. From what I hear it should be in paperback soon…”
