    Addictive

    Although I'm not into very descriptive storylines, I love the characters at this point and look forward to the next...

    Masterful

    Although I normally make small individual reviews, this series has me doing the rare combined review. I LOVED this series. I do mean L.O.V.E. This series NEEDS to skip everyone's to be read lists and go straight to BUY. This series, entirely, had me entranced. I did not stop, not even for air. This series is great for men and women alike. There is no doubt in my mind that this series can easily make for an amazing muti-million (Hundreds) dollar movie series.

    With all that being said, on with the review. The writing style was masterfully done. Everything was perfectly balanced. The characters were done flawlessly. Their realistic personalities, combined with the richness in the detailed world, blurred the lines between real and fantasy. The author has an uncanny way of drawing you so far into the story-line that you can easily lose yourself. The pace was unrelenting. It never let me peel my eyes away from the pages of the story. It kept my eyes at bay with the twist and turns, edge of your seat, burst of humor, and the lively playfulness. The plot's climax could bring you to your knees. The only disappointment I had, was like all things, the book came to an end.

    All three of these books easily made a 5 star rating, with mind blowing grace.

    Great continuation of the Norothian Cycle

    "Death of a Kingdom" is the 2nd book in the Norothian Cycle, following "The Sable City." While not as lighthearted as its predecessor, there are plenty of moments that made me laugh out loud. There is much more action in this book, and the original adventuring band is split into two, as Nesha-tari travels back to her native country. The bulk of the book follows the trail of the larger set of adventurers, but there is a significant chunk in the middle addressing Nesha-tari's adventurers, and the book ends with her as well.

    This book mainly focuses on the larger band of adventurers, including the Duchess Claudja, as they travel to Chengdea in order to try to help that duchy come Under the Code of the Empire. Hughes, the King of Daul, in which Chengdea is located, is obviously not happy with this decision and as a result things become a bit... heated. We meet the Princess Allison, the sister to Albert, the Emperor Under the Code. She is quite a character and I think one of my favorites in the story so far.

    Eddie seems to have found his own voice and stride in this novel - not to say that the previous book was derivative, but the influence of other fantasy stories was plain to see. "Death of a Kingdom" was more of an individual voice, and I think Eddie is an author to be on the look-out for, as he shows tremendous talent. Be in the lookout for the 3rd book in the series, "The Wind from Miilark."
