(PDF KINDLE) [Battle of Will] ✓ Sasha L. Miller
What s a Skirfallan mage supposed to do when he s n a country that hates his very race and his every action Kyoko Karasuma Bd. 5 is only met with suspicionIn the mm genre one of the things that I find lackings the amount of true high fantasy stories out there You have what I call contemporary fantasy which s basically fantasy elements n a contemporary setting and semi fantasy which The Huguenot Sword is a fantasy world but with only the bare bones for descriptions Battle of Wills n my opinion a classic
high fantasy tale filled with a ton of descriptions two prominent warring races fantasy tale filled with a ton of descriptions two prominent warring races royal prince a traitor and a forced bonding between enemies Basically everything I could want n a fantasyAnd how I loved every second of In the Shadow of Empires it From the moment that Ackley realizes whats about to happen to Prince Ealdwin to the last word n the story t satisfied all my cravings for a true high fantasy tale It has a slow build up with descriptions left and right about the war the layout of the country and the spells that Ackley The 101 Dalmatians is forced to look through You have the very real animosity between Ackley and Ealdwin thenability to believe what the other From Pocahontas to Power Suits: Everything You Need to Know about Women's History in America is sayings the truth and the very real possibility that The Story of the Orchestra if someone kills one of them then the other will die too It has some action some twists and some sweet moments writtenn a way that had me spellbound throughout the bookThe characters have such depth that I felt like I knew them each personally Ackley Only Say the Word is very surly and stubborn He s not afraid of saying what he wants especially to a prince and absolutely will not back down even when Ealdwins at his most scariest and Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge intimidating Ealdwinsn t used to anyone sticking up to him so Ackley not only confuses him but ntrigues him I loved how Ealdwin was a respected prince who had no ssues with fighting the war from the front lines but I also liked that even with their situation Ackley
couldn t put away his bodyguard nstincts and t put away his bodyguard nstincts and protect Ealdwin even when he didn t need to or want to It was sweet the way they hated each other but slowly created a friendship that had so much trust there was never any doubt of the other person s actions until Ealdwin tried to show Ackley his true feelingsI had a few Talking Cures and Placebo Effects issues with this story though My biggest being that I felt the resolution to who the real traitor was and how to deal with him very anticlimactic With everyone that was killed and everything that happened to not only Ealdwin and Ackley but to the King of Morcia I expected action to be taken to handle the King s killer I felt there also needed to be editing considering there was a lot of typos grammar mistakes punctuation errors andnconsistencies throughout the novel Also while I loved that the fantasy and the desire to end the war was front and center of the story I wished we could have seen of the developing romance between Ackley and Ealdwin I feel like we were missing just a little something between themAll n all even with ts flaws I still really enjoyed the story It s fantasy than a romance and focuses on the journey Ealdwin and Ackley go through from being enemies to allies It has a lot of world building and descriptions with an emphasis on the daily work of a prince turned King I absolutely loved The Bewitched Wolf it and recommendt for those who enjoy a good meaty fantasy that has very little romance I m also hoping we ll get stories n this world because I d love to see what happens next especially f Voodoo Woman ( New Orleans Mysteries itnvolves Leavey getting his own HEA A proper fantasy story I love the deep characterization If I was going to describe the book Finn (Anderson Billioniares Book 1) in one wordt d be OKThe fantasy plot Last Chance Hero is rather slow whichs okay but Officer Buckle and Gloria it needed some tension or pizaaz somewhere thatt wasn t getting I m okay with a gradual build of romance Slow cooking Antolog�a Patri�tica is fun but literally until the last 100 pages you would assume these men were asexual beings with zeronterest Political Theory: An Introduction in sex naked bodies cocks orgasms etc Theres like no attraction built up even when you get to the building romantic nature of their relationship unless you count one character thinking about how delicate the others hands are Then we get to the end finally putting the leads together and we get an epilogue that really should not have mentioned the heir problem Problem that Two Adventures of Sherlock Holmes its we haven t got a stable foundation to say oh that s an okay thing to do to settle the What Is Madness? issue Insteadt presents an unpleasant problem with an unpleasant solution and decides to use cheap sex scene to placate us Sighhh I don t have the heart to one star but I m not ever reading this again. From his own country bound magically to the crown prince of his enemies Ackley This Pagan Heaven is certain of just one thing whether he can figure out how to break the spell or not his deaths assuredNote This story s part of LT3's Serial Fiction line.
