Question RE: The Prophecy of the Kings - a fantasy trilogy

Really nice review from Amazon.com. Many thanks Samantha.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Trilogy, June 18, 2014
By 
Samantha Grayson (UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: The Prophecy of the Kings - Omnibus Edition (Kindle Edition)
Fantasy book lovers will love the
Prophecy of the Kings. It has everything a good fantasy book should have; from dwarves to dragons , wizards and a big battle. We have the 'journey,' and the friendship.

The author acknowledges that he is a fan of fantasy books, especially
Lord of the Rings and this does show. There are points in the story where you can clearly see influences from other books. Writing something completely original though is not easy. It is original enough to be a book in its own right

The characters here are great, the story strong and the description of the locations amazing. In places it could do with a little editing but overall this is a great read.

Suitable for teens to older fantasy readers.

RE: The Prophecy of the Kings - a fantasy trilogy

Nice review, thanks Ian. 
"The Prophecy of the Kings trilogy is a sweeping adventure with an epic feel to it - a world of magical happenings and fantastic creatures, but all the while with a darker edge to it at times and some elements of horror and suspense. It is a trilogy that I enjoyed so much that I have re-read it, and I still remember how moved I was on first reading the dramatic and emotional climax to the story.
There are a lot of books that tackle the fantasy genre of course, and so it is crucial to any endeavour in this field to not only display imagination and drama, but also to provide characters that the reader can connect to and care about. This trilogy achieves that in spades and so keeps you reading because you care about what is happening to the main characters - to this day I even retain a certain affection for the wayward sorcerer Vastra, as well as the central characters of Kaplyn and Lars.
Perhaps there are ideas here that are common to the genre - I am certainly reminded at times of Lord of the Rings and such like - but they are taken up and given new energy and dramatic context, all set against the building menace of the rising might of Trosgarth. Fundamentally, this is a quest story - an epic journey through both a vast land and a swathe of time, and like all good journeys it is full of scenes and adventures that will stay in the memory long after the quest is finished."

Nice one, David, but I got that beat! Any authors have shorter reviews than two words?!

"Absolutely brilliant!" - http://www.amazon.co.uk...

You have some lovely reviews for your collected trilogy, though. Some are proper essays!
