Steel, Magick and Faith is written in such a way that it is reminiscent of Lord of the Rings. With a very different plot and characters, this is a book I consider to be of 'epic' proportions. I was pulled into the world of Glenryth and felt like I was a part of the story. I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. The book addresses, in a positive way, the practices of others who degrade and bully people that are different than the "norm", and gives a p...more

R2R (LoP) : Steel, Magick and Faith: Book 1 of the Remus Rothwyn Chronicles

I received a free copy, through LoP, in exchange for a review.

The Fey creatures have lived a harmonious life, but then the introduction of humans threaten to destroy their way of life. Humans are quickly evolving and starting to encroach upon their lands. There was once a treaty, to pay homage and respect to the Fey kind, but that is slowly being forgotten, upsetting the natural flow of life. Not only do you have this asp...more

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review:

Remus is a hermit and a scholar, awkward around people, but thirsty for all truths.
Elaina is one of the Touched, able to use wind and water magic to aid her, and a herbalist.
Together they are outcasts, never feeling truly welcome in High Peaks, but feeling a certain affinity for each other.
Dwarves abound, amongst other things, leading the outcasts away from their troubled home, and out into the wider world. “Dra’k Tarluuth R...more

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This is a good book with a lot of ideas I really enjoyed. There were some elements of the world that I hoped I would see more details of, but I suspect they will be in later books. The characters were interesting and felt fairly real. Most situations in the book had a feel of realism in regards to how people really interact with one another.
If I have any complaints with this book it is that the writing occasionally felt stilted. I think...more
Steel, Magick, and Faith ( Book 1 of The Remus Rothwyn Chronicles) by T.P. Grish

An intriguing tale that can hold anyone attention thru out the whole book.
I am a big fan of The Lord of the Ring so this story came close, but with a different feel to it. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the reading the next one in the series.

Steel, Magick, and Faith is a gripping tale that anyone can easily get lost in. Grish has created a wonderful world and shows us the symbolism of being unique. Two childhood friends, who are considered different, leave their childhood homes in search of foes, saving friends, and stopping a menacing threat. The characters in this story are well defined and likeable. My favorist character is Perfidian. Perfidian, to me, seems to understand and take things in stride. I will leave out spoilers, but...more
This definitely wasn't my type of book but I did enjoy the second half. The story jumped straight in and there was no explanation of characters or places. I got confused at times in regards to the characters and plot.
Once I did get into it from about halfway I started to enjoy the adventure the characters were on.
Maybe a glossary of terms or a better introduction might have helped

Full disclosure - I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This book had quite an interesting premise and lots of potential. Unfortunately, the story often did not flow very well. The sentences were often stilted and awkward. Even though I was kinda curious how it all turned out, I found I really had to push myself to keep reading. It wasn't a story I could get truly lost in. I think a bit more character developmnt may have helped as well

“There was balance, harsh and violent like the noxious air in a swamp. But balance, nonetheless. Then somewhere in the fickle mists of creation came humanity, clawing and afraid, grasping and ambitious. Enveloped in a dangerous world, these creatures lived as scavengers; afraid of the greater things of the world. They were beset by disease, lack of claws or fangs, and the lack of habitat to call their own. Lefeyhdie had not provided any particular prey or plant for them to eat. These fleshy, naked beings were doomed to die of attrition. Curiously, these beings never stopped Doing, or Thinking. Breeding to strengthen their numbers. Sharpening rocks, shaping wood, gathering leaves and sticks for clothing and shelter. Eventually they had settlements of great number, crude but effective tools of war. Ancient forces began to pay attention to the growing incursion, plaguing them, slaying stragglers at night. But still the humans held on to the edge of the precipice, knuckles white with effort'.” 1 likes
“Bah, he still saw the same stupidity. The image of the hanged man in the farming community of Yondern flashed through his mind. Now there was a war brewing between the Steelwielders and some foreign religion. More mindless loss over beliefs and mythology. But.. he could not deny the noble features in his companions. Although Perfidian was too blithe and Elaina too didactic, they had risked their life to do what was right. He did owe them his life. He could not deny the nobility he saw in many different people, bits and pieces of nobility that shined through under pressure. The guards who risked their lives to protect the villagers, Markham who flew at the dangerous dwarf, swords flashing; even an Eruthian merchant who stopped in his journey to share tales with complete strangers'.” 1 likes
