War, political intrigue, magic, threats and personal danger are enough for anyone, but they become especially compelling when viewed through the eyes of Tallen, the young girl descended from Dragonslayers, and heralded as a potential saviour of her people.
The sheer humanity and depth of the characters developed by Jules Cory, bring to life the fantastical and magical. Following Tallen through the complexity of the world she inhabits, the reader is drawn in and captivated, rather than being a cliched page turner, the pages disappear as the world comes to life with the richness of a living environment.
This is a book I will use with students, In fact I have already recommended it, and the the previous work 'Dargonslayer Book 1: The Bard', on the library page as a way of forgetting the isolation we currently live in.
A new and definitely unique heroine. A seven year old girl that is quite suddenly orphaned and inherits her father's sword. Great character development and world building. You are transported magically to another time.
This opens up a whole new world for Tallen and she has to quickly learn how to negotiate her way and also develop her powers.
This is the second book in a wonderful trilogy. If you have not yet read The Bard, the first book, I recommend that you read it before The Seer. I cannot wait for what happens next.
Magic, dragons, Gods, and warring factions. This has it all.
During my career as a veterinary nurse, I have played with my love of words and writing by submitting professional journal articles.
A mid-life crisis was the catalyst to write my first novel, and submerse myself fully in the realms of myth and folklore, wizards and dragons.
Book 2 - The Seer - is currently being processed with Matador, and has a release date planned for early 2020. The conclusion in book 3 has begun and is on target for a release sometime around 2022.
