[ Pdf Decimus Fate and the Talisman of Dreams ñ read-for-college PDF ] by Peter A. Flannery ¼ This was probably not a book I would normally have picked up but I won a Goodreads giveaway so thought I would give it a try I was really pleasantly surprisedthe writing and the story are both engaging and fun Its a quick, easy, fun review.
Fate and the Tutor on the surface seem like such an unlikely partnership but it really works I really enjoyed the mystery of the disease that was making all of the monks sick and Fate s ultimate resolution was so clever There are a few points I was a little confused byI couldn t quite figure out where the prologue fit into the story and I wished there was a little specifics on the reasons the Fate is no longer practicing magic and Tutor is no longer a demon hunter But in general, I really enjoyed the book I wonder if the author is going to turn this into a series featuring Fate and Tutor I would totally love that I hadn t read any fantasy stories in awhile and I was pleased to win a copy of Decimus Fate and the Talisman of Dreams on goodreads Both the main and secondary characters were interesting and the world building was good Although the story held my interest I felt that a few short chapters of backstory at the beginning would have vastly improved it so I can t rate it five stars.
Really enjoyed BattleMage which was 5 stars for me so read this one but it was a hard slog unfortunately Lots of reviews thought it was fast paced, good characters, gripping story but I must have missed all those bits I am pretty confused tbh as there were several story threads that didn t seem to come back to any relevance Detail was given for things not so important to the story and then lacking in major plot lines as though this was meant to be a much longer book or just setting the scene for other books Main issue for me was probably that I felt the stakes were never very high for the main characters and I was hoping for plot twists but everything just plodded along reasonably predictably.
Nevertheless I will definitely be reading any other books written by this author and recommend him to others.
Took me a little while to get invested in this book but once I did I finished it in about two days Excellent follow up to Battle Mage even though I, than anything, wanted this to be an extension of Battle Mage , and a fantastic read Good characters who stay in my favorite place, firmly in the gray areas of morality It all ties up into a nice little package in the end and all the solutions to the many problems come about without feeling forced or gimmicked Highly recommend this and look forward to Mr Flannery s next installment Shorter than his previous book but enjoyed as much if not.
I hope we get another book from this world.
Excellent, engaging sadly too short I hope the next book comes out soon Decimus Fate Is A New Fantasy Adventure By The Author Of Battle MageWhen The Members Of A Remote Monastery Are Struck Down By A Mysterious Illness, They Enlist The Aid Of A Former Demon Hunter And A Man Known As The Sage Of Blackfell House Setting Out To Find A Cure, They Soon Find Themselves Caught In A Web Of Danger From Ruthless Crime Lords, Vengeful Assassins And Evil Magic Users Who Draw Their Power From The Realm Of Demons But Why Should A Mission Of Mercy Attract Such Grave And Dangerous Threats Because The Sage Of Blackfell House Was Once A Feared And Notorious Sorcerer And His Name Is Decimus Fate I won this book through a Goodreads giveaway I really enjoyed it as a fast and fun read The characters are likable and you become interested in the journey I would like to read works involving Fate and The Tutor and see how their friendship and adventures further evolve.
