Meet the Author

Ben Cassidy lives in Vancouver, WA, with his wife and three children. He pursued graduate studies in history for several years until he decided that reading six scholarly books a week was not challenging enough for him, and so switched to being a stay-at-home dad. He has been writing since he was in third grade, though now he is able to bribe other people to do the illustrating for him. He has the uncanny habit of writing of himself in the third person, and is disturbed by how easily his whole life can be summed up in four sentences. Or even five.

    This isn't my typical genre, but this book was exceptional! I honestly was completely enthralled throughout the entire book, which doesn't happen often. The writing, for me, was a perfect blend of action, suspense and mystery with humor mixed in. I will definitely be looking for the second book!

    Unbelievable that such writing is to be had for free. If your a fan of epic fantasy/fiction you've GOT to get this. The best review on can give is to simply say.."get this, read it. You will love it."

    Ho hum

    I am really glad this book was free, as I am deleting it off my Nook after I write this review.
    There is no context for the characters or the world in which we find them. The reader has no idea what in what century this all takes place, though using muskets and so on is meant to be a hint, I guess. However, the characters use modern slang ("Yeah", for example)! None of the characters inner dialogue or motives are revealed, so it's hard to muster up any sympathy for them. The descriptions of the fights are way too long and last far too many pages to keep this reader interested. The dialogue between the two main characters is stilted and tells us nothing about how these two think of each other, which for me just added to the boredom of the book. The ending was predictable, and even the characters really didn't seem to be engaged in their own storyline! I'd say give it a pass, there are so many other decent books set in other worlds/other times.

    I really enjoyed the first 2 books. I am a little upset that I couldn't find the rest of the set for my nook. Only books 1 and 2.

    Truly enjoyed this book. Every once in awhile an author comes along who actually knows how to write. Ben Cassidy is on of those authors. It was a wonderful experience reading such a well written book. Totally error free. Who ever Ho Hum is, they're probably so used to reading poorly written books filled with violence and sex that they don't know a truly well written book when they read one. Page turner with a nice ending but open enough that you want to know more about what happens next in the lives of the characters. I will definitely be reading all of Ben Cassidy's books.

    While this is an entertaining adventure, there are some issues. Using a well known author's (JRRT) names is off putting. There were some editing issues. The story starts with one being dropped into the action with no background. The latter may have been deliberate on the author's part in order to give the reader some sense of the character's bewilderment.

    Four 1/2 Stars. Except the stats keep blinking out when I submit the review so I have no idea what you'll see.
    Very good beginning to what I expect will be a closely knit series in a forest and castle kind of setting. And I expect Kendril will fall in love with Jade and there are indications Jade is falling in love with him. The story is well written and, although not wildly new, it is interesting  I will be looking to see what other kinds of  books Mr. Cassidy has written but will probably not get more of this. I prefer SF and mystery. On the big plus side---no sexual activity,  no zombies or werewolves and no cussing

    Hello

    Very exceptional entertaining writing in a free 180 page book with next book excerpt. Hope the sequel is longer, but with this exceptional writing it might be okay to pay for a 180 page sequel. An adventure with action and humor. This book has dialog - just read another book that was mostly narrative and was skimming through the lectures on how the reader should feel about each and every situation.
    And to the critic who needs a century, etc, in his/her books; it is fiction, watch out, a hobbit might run through the woods. The author did not claim it was historical in genre.

    Wow

    This book had me from start to finish..i love reading authors that's not commercial and Ben Cassidy was no exception. I can't wait to see what Kendril is up to, will he leave his vow behind to be with Jade (Serentha). I just bought book two.
