Overview

When second son Alexander Valentine loses his brother to an assassin’s arrow, he discovers that his family protects an ancient secret and reluctantly finds himself at the center of the final battle of a war that was supposed to have ended two thousand years ago.

Pursued by the dark minions of an ancient enemy, Alexander flees to the mountain city of Glen Morillian where he discovers that he is the heir to the throne of Ruatha, one of the Seven Isles, but before he can claim the throne he must recover the ancient Thinblade. Seven were forged by the first Sovereign of the Seven Isles and bound to the bloodline of each of the seven Island Kings in exchange for their loyalty to the Old Law. Each sword is as long as a man’s arm, as wide as a man’s thumb and so thin it can’t be seen when viewed from the edge. Thinblade is the story of Alexander’s quest to find the ancient sword, claim the throne of Ruatha and raise an army to stand against the enemy that has awoken to claim dominion over all of the Seven Isles.

About the Author

Since my childhood, I've been passionate about fantasy. After reading many stories of epic struggle set in worlds of magic, I've decided to create a world of my own. The Seven Isles is the result. Thinblade is the first book in the series with more on the way.

This book is an excellent example of a story that leaves the reader feeling satisfied with the completeness of the story, and yet wanting it not to end. A book that draws the reader into the eternal conflict of good and evil, and fills you with a tale of the education of a Mage, and the Quest demanded of a Legend. I loved it, and am waiting for Book 2 (not so patiently, I might add)

The writing quality gets better the further you read. Stick with it and you will end up having read an enjoyable fantasy novel about mages, reluctant future kings and magical swords

Very good story!  Sometimes seems a little preachy, like the hero is just a little too perfect and he or one of the other good guys always has the proper philosophy needed to keep going.  But other than an annoying line here and there, the story is very good...good enough that I keep coming back for more.  However you can only buy paperback versions of the rest of the series from another online store.

This book has everything going for it. Good heroes, good plot, good world, and most important of all good flow. The villians are somewhat one dimensional, but all around I am looking forward to the second book and all the others so far.

Good, not great. The characters are fairly likeable, though the author establishes a certain relationship way too quickly, which makes it feel cheap and lifeless throughout the rest of the series (I'm currently struggling through book five). If Mr. Wells had taken time to flesh out this relationship, it would've worked better. Overall, it's a good series, though a tad sterile and detached.

The story line is good. A little repetitive in the word use of descriptions, such as saying over and over the color and beauty of their eyes. and repeating the main characters way of thinking. We get it, he’s a good guy. I am anxious to read the next chapter though!

There are a lot of sword and sorcery books, but most do not hold my attention. This story was well told. I was interested in the characters and what would happen next. I plan to get the next book in the series when it is available.

Slow start actually made the following actions more believable. Great insight into people, evil and wars. I'm waiting for Book 2.

It doesn't seem like a story but a movie that you can watch at your leisure. The characters came alive! Cant wait to start the next book in the series.
