Two powers, two quests, two fates...two mortals struggling against the very forces with which they might have aligned themselves, had they been given the opportunity to choose. Two mortals, light and dark, locked into one intense battle. A battle of which the end has already been written in blood. A blood not their own, just as the battle is not their own. And yet, they mu ...more

Wow! I did not see that coming! I'm talking about the ending, can there be a bigger cliff hanger!! Definitely going to have to see what happens in the next book. I had to read the last couple of pages twice to make sure I was reading it correctly! I kept thinking “no it can’t be she did not just do that!” AH!!! I really did enjoy the story. It was full of action, so if you like swords fights then this is the story for you. The story is about Good vs. Evil and takes the two main characters in an ...more
Quest is an epic story, full of the mystery and magic of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, with a strong religious overtone in the fight of good versus evil.

Overall, I enjoyed reading the story. As it is listed as book 1, I look forward to reading more. I do have a few things, however, that threw me off from truly loving it:

-the characters (especially Tiernan, our hero) were not particularly relatable for me. Tiernan is on the side of good, of God, but he is so perfect throughout most of the story,
Quest is exactly what the story is. Two powers, good and evil battling each other. One to end the world and the other to save the world.

Tiernan Lebonn is trained as the warrior and chosen one to stop the witch Marie from ending the world. He was told not to kill Marie and to save the world.

Shiloh of Cheokk has been trained in hatred to be Marie and to end the world. She has never been shown any kindness from her mentor except to be abused verbally, physically, and emotionally. She is to end the

Overall, this was not a bad story, with very strong overtones of religion and good versus evil. There was definitely a lot of action and the violence and gore was very graphic--maybe almost too much. A lot of it felt a little gratutious and overly done. And, being an animal lover, I was extremely saddened by the treatment of the horses in the story. *sniffles into a tissue*

Tiernan was almost too pure and perfect, but he did have his moments of self-doubt and indecisiveness. Shiloh definitely po
An epic tale of good vs evil if I have ever read one. Quest follows Tiernan, the pure quester who is backed by The Most High, and Shiloh the quester who is shrouded in the darkness of the Dark One.

You can probably guess some of the plot points if you were given 5 guesses, but probably not the ending. That surprised me.

I didn't like some of the character names because it made the reading harder as I went along. I also think the alternate names and idea for the times and seasons was an added burde

Note: on my blog, I give this a 2.5 which equals a 2 ("it was okay") on Goodreads, rather than a 3 ("liked it").

Once again, I see the reviews of others and wonder if we were reading the same book.

This book, and thus this review, are a source of great conflict for me. There is firstly the fact that I want to say every indie book I read is spectacular, but I can't. I hate to not be able to only say great things about a book that has been entrusted to me to review, but I won't lie. That's not fair

It was interesting. I thought some of the writing was a little... I don't know, harsh or unexpected in its mechanics and tone, but it wasn't bad, especially considering the author's age at the time of writing. I am not one for overtly religious writing, so I felt a little bit on the outside looking in from a theological standpoint, but I thought there were a lot of fun, fantasy ideas in the book. I give Michayla Roth a lot of credit for the effort that went into producing this well organized, in ...more
I received a free ebook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
In this tale of good versus evil, a prophecy concerning two people, a good man and a woman full of hate, must be answered. Will evil and hate succeed or will good be able to change evil?
From the first page of this book, I was drawn into this unique world. Though the world building wasn't as in-depth as I wanted, you still get a strong sense of what kind of place it is. You get a feel for the people without really knowin
I love reading a book that draws you into the story, Michayla Roth does just that with the first book in the A World of Heroes series, Quest. The story follows the journeys of Shiloh and Tiernan as they begin their adventure across Wundyrr. It is and epic battle between good and evil, light and dark the effect of circumstance and environment on humane nature. The tale that Michayla spins is captivating too the last. I can not wait for the second book in the series to continue following Tiernan a ...more

As someone who normally doesn't enjoy the fantasy epic good vs. epic evil, I must say that this particular book did a great job of going beyond just that. The plot was intriguing, and even though I felt that sometimes the pace got a little bit too bogged for my tastes, I still read the entire book pretty much straight through just to know how it ended.

Another thing that I enjoyed was the different abilities displayed by the evil characters. I enjoy wizards and their abilities, and I think that t

Well there are plenty of twists and turns and ACTION . Good vs evil with strong characters . Magic ,action and occasional romance . A bit slow and confusing in some parts but picks up towards the end . I would recommend this book
A good Amazon freebie~ I really liked the book cover & you had to read this one carefully cuz there was a lot to take in! Almost like putting a puzzle together, in the end, the storyline really came together.

I had to stop after a few chapters. It was that bad. Maybe a much younger reader would enjoy it. But nothing like Tolkin or Rowling!
Great read, lots of action, light on the romance, interesting characters...
