Jessie has been reading and reviewing The Prince’s Man by Deborah Jay

Solid.

This book was solid.

Solid in the sense that it was, and I quote from dictionary.comhaving relative firmness, coherence of particles, or persistence of form, as matter that is not liquid or gaseous.

This newly created world is firm, there are no gaps or jumps of reasoning. One creature, idea, magic or bit of history flows right into the next. Characters that appear substantial at the beginning of the book do nothing but grow and evolve as their backstory unfolds behind them.

This is solidly written fantasy tale.

It was also solid in the, and now I quote form urban dictionary, cool or awesome aspect.  .

In this land people play a deadly game that involves lots of spying. Of course along with spying goes the lying. And that’s where the awesome part came in because more than once, just as the main character figured out some sort of mystery, I figured it out too!

Not way ahead of time so that I spent my time reading thinking, “Oh come on! It’s so obvious why haven’t you got that figured out yet!” Or one of those stories where they tell you the big reveal and you think, ” Well there is no way I could have ever figured that out.”

But at the same time!

That’s not only a really cool feeling as a reader but really awesome writing from an author!

Would I recommend it? If you are a fantasy fan put this one on your to read list. There is more of this story yet to tell and I’ll be lined up to read the next one when it comes out!

Also by Deborah Jay: Desprite Measures (Which is, I suspect, why the water sprite was extra… rambunctious…)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I discovered this book because I’m a proud member of Rosie’s Book Review Team!

    • Alison, if you take the plunge, I hope you enjoy it. As an author, for me it is all about the characters; the genre just allows me to put them in places you wouldn’t find in a contemporary setting.
      Strange though it sounds, when I started writing The Prince’s Man, I had it planned out as a science fiction book, but changed slants at the behest of a publisher, who then went bust!

  1. Well, I read fantasy, at least of late. And I have Deborah’s book coming up very SOON on the TBR pile. This review just makes me want to read faster to get to it! Can’t wait!

  2. Oh, sounds good! I’ll read any genre, as long as it doesn’t contain torture or graphic violence. Enough of that for me in the real world.

    Pinned, shared, and added to my Amazon Wish List. 🙂
