    I Couldnt Put It Down!!!

    Some of my favorite books are the classics, like Treasure Island, The Hobbit, and The Chronicals of Narnia. This one was an inexpensive in-between read for me. I needed a break between the never ending story of Game of Thrones and my text books. So I picked this one to read on the side. I was absolutely delighted! This is his first novel, but he has extraordinary RAW TALENT!

    I fell in love, or grew to hate each and everyone of the characters. I honestly coundn't pick a favorite, althouh I knew which one I hated. The story flowed very well. The fight scenes were very descriptive and I think I learned a few moves myself. This was more like watching a movie more than reading a book. The author has a way with drawing you in and leaving you satisfied and I am eagerly awaiting a sequel. Best money I ever spent on an e-book. The one draw back is that it's a bit long, it took me about 3 days, but I couldn't put it down!

    JOB WELL DONE!

    Amazing

    I had never read an ebook before. What an extraordinary story to blossom this way. I thoroughly enjoyed it and wished I could buy an old fashioned type copy for my daughter in law who is a huge George Martin fan. Guess I'll have to get her a Nook next Christmas!

    Excellent Read!!!!!

    I just finished re-reading Of Pawns and Kings for the second time. It is a book that a reader can either sit back and enjoy as a "easy read" or dig into deeper and attempt to grasp all that the author is trying to convey. What I am attempting to say is that I can't help but be reminded of the Lord of the Rings in that you can either just read the story and enjoy the adventures because the story flows well. Or, the reader can emerse themselves into the language, culture and geography of the story.

    If you are a fan of Tolken or Lewis then this book is a must read. The story flows well and the descriptions of the characters, action and scenery place you, the reader, right into the story. I thoroughly enjoyed it because it made me think regarding the parallels we face in our world regarding good and evil.

    Lastly, I shared the book with my 11 year old son and he enoyed it because of the action and adventure aspects of the story. The fact that the book holds the attention of an 11 year old says a lot!!!

    A Great Read!

    In Of Pawns and Kings, author Joseph Campbell makes an original and significant contribution to the fantasy genre. With his easy-to-read (but not dumbed-down) prose, Campbell demonstrates the art of storytelling with complex, interesting characters and detailed majestic environments. His characters struggle with their strengths and failings and disagreements with each other to strive for a common goal of a world at peace. It was difficult to believe that this is Campbell's first novel. It was a wonderful read that was hard to put down and I look forward to reading more of his work in the future.
