I’ve been particularly pleased to read two wonderful, suitable for all ages, fantasy books in a row. Both are by new-to-me authors. Both are the first in their series. Both feature 10-year-old main characters. Honest, I didn’t plan this. It’s a case of the Universe delivering to me what I like to ask for from a book – good times.“The Kalarthri” (The Way to Freedom, Book 1) is a fantasy about a young girl, Kalena, who is born into a feudal society where she, as second born, is automat [...]
The Kalarthri: The Way to Freedom Book One by H. M. Clarke is a very good fantasy book which I found hard to put down. It was full of adventure and action. This book is a YA novel but good for all ages.The author developed a storyline which was both believable and realistic. It never wondered off into something which did not make sense. I found it easy to follow and get into the story. H. M. Clarke's characters made the story. They were very easy to identify with. This made for good reading and [...]
DNF: Only read the first chapter due to massively horrible grammar.I really cannot understand how this book got so many rave reviews, and I hate to give the author any review at all, but I cannot condone letting this atrocity continue to receive good reviews. Not only was the beginning description of the world over the top and boring, it was crammed full of run on sentences, misspelled words, blatant misuse of punctuation, and awful tense blunders. For example:"The distant thunder of hooves boug [...]
"The Kalarthri" is a really enjoyable story and a quick read. I love the author's imagination and the way the plot flows gently and smoothly However, I did have a lot of problems with typos and tenses jumping around all over the place which was really disappointing as this book deserves to be polished to the shine it so obviously could have. PLEASE NOTE: It's possible I have an older version of this book, so the problems may have been fixed.
Good writingThe story was engaging and the writing was pretty good. I wasn’t a fan of the ending because it felt like everything was left unfinished. But what’s there is really good.
I put 3.5 stars it would have been 4 but I have cliff-hangers. I can't wait to read part 2. Kala (the doll) was a bit spooky.
A good startI really liked this book and look forward to the next one! I like book series the start when the people are children and you see them grow up.
I just finished this story about a 10 year old girl named Kalar who has been taken from her home to become a Hatar. She is young and naïve, but she knows she is different because she can hear the thoughts of others and of animals.Kalar finds out that she will learn to fly and is united with Adhamh, a hatar. But her curiosity gets the best of her and causes problems. But will her sense of adventure get her out of those problems.I gave this book a four because of the abrupt ending. But then the s [...]
I liked the worldbuilding, but was unfortunately left with a feeling of what did there happen? The plot went too quickly after my opinon, but I think that I would have recommended this for that child I was.I felt that the story was written with young teenagers in mind, and therefore I couldn't enjoy it completely.But the book is a easy read and I would warmly recommend this book for young teenagers. But it wasn't a book for me.
I was provided with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review.This is a cute, easy to read children's book. I wouldn't mind reading the rest of the series to see how the story line plays out. There were some grammatical mistakes that threw me, but content-wise it is pretty good. The ending seemed rushed and just stopped, leaving you wanting more to wrap it up. Then again, maybe that's the hook to get you to read book two.
It's not always the first born.Or first born sons. Imagine being a ten year old girl taken from your parents with only your doll to protect you. Imagine hearing the thoughts of adults. Imagine learning at that age that you will be paired with a flying lizard (Dragon?). Now imagineloving every minute of it!I was given this book free in exchange for my honest opinion. My pleasure! I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series!
3 STARS!!! Entertaining, with possibilities, but just made me wish there was more.Cute little story of a young girl, Kalena and how her innocent life with her mom, family and ever present doll, suddenly changes. For me, just seemed it was for a very young audience and there just wasn't much "there" there. Maybe I just need to read next book of series? We'll see Happy Reading!!!Tim
I received a digital copy of this book for free from Story Cartel in exchange for an unbiased review.I enjoyed reading this novel for the younger reader. The only reason I didn't give it more stars is because I thought it ended far too abruptly, and left me confused about how some of the happenings fitted into the story.
I really enjoyed this book. The author gave good details so you could picture in your mind what the Hatar look like. I feel like I know the characters and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I was excited when Kral agreed to go with Kalena on free day. I didn't want the book to end. I'm hooked now and need to read the next book in the series.
Adventurous and exciting. You follow Kalena being taken from her family and being forced to undergo the 'Krytal'. Then she disobeys her superiors as she and her friends go searching for the one person that can help an injured companion and save their life.I love the Hatar'le'margarten - I wish I knew one :)
The HatarKaleena was only ten but she knew that some children were treated better than others. Why? She soon found out that she has been selected to be a Hagar rider. Soon she finds out that not everyone can hear a Hagar. She cannot only hear a Hater, but their riders too. Laurens has been matched with Adhamh, a large black Hagar. He turns out to be her best friend.
I was a bit distracted by the kids while I was reading this book and maybe that's why I found it very hard to get into. I will read it again during the school holidays and see whether my opinion might change.Won in a giveaway.
Adventurous, exciting. You follow Kalena being taken from her family and being forced to undergo the 'Krytal'. Then she disobeys her superiors as she and her friends go searching for the one thing that can help an injured companion. Great book for older kids.
Very goodWow, good story but very short. The characters could have been a little better developed. I'm looking forward to the next one.
it was OK.
The character development was abrupt and unbelievable, the story ended way too suddenly (and not in a good way), and the punctuation mistakes were abound and distracting. Not going to read the rest.
Sounds good and reads quickly. Enjoyed reading this book.More to come with more of this series. Has a young adult slant but I liked it. Look forward to reading more of this series.
DNF. Just didn't hold my interest. I had high hopes for it, but it just didn't cut it.
