In the quest fantasy Oath of the Brother Blades, Thomas, the very young hero, rises by service to his Great Knight mentor, Fedrick, and his King from hungry, fatherless farm boy to a knight. His allies and adversaries are classic fantasy folk, fairies and trolls, joined by a new creation, dragon-like zhu-longs.

What earned stars:

The author’s stated purpose in writing this first book in his Brother Blades Chronicles is “…to offer YA and mid-grade readers a novel that satisfies their hunger for fan

Oath of the Brother Blades was an addicting entertaining story. The character development with Thomas was quite something that I personally admired (one who ENJOYS GOOD character development) while reading the story.

Thomas' difficult life experience such as losing his father, being poor, being discriminated by 'royal' folks, really made me wonder how he was going to succeed and what type of writer Choy was. Throughout the story, you can't help but admire how there's no lie in Thomas. He's compl

Recommends it for: Kids 5 - 16 and anyone who enjoys fairytale fantasy
Fairies and trolls, knights, kings and Thomas, the poor boy who has stolen an apple to keep from starving – have all found their way into this delightful Young Adult adventure fantasy. The story was beautifully constructed and moved smoothly. The writing was strong and keeps one engaged and wondering what is going to happen next. I believe the ending is set up for a series, which is good news for those of us who truly enjoyed this book. Great job!

A Book Review by Walter Danley – September 8, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition

Samuel Choy does a marvelous job in creating his fantasy world and the Kingdom of Theris. Therein lives the fatherless young peasant, Thomas, our protagonist. In the next forty-seven chapters, Thomas will confront all of the presumed fears of a twelve year old; facing dragons, fairies, trolls, and the plots against his King.

It is not until thirty percent of the story has been told

This is a pleasing story of a young peasant in knightly times who becomes a knight of the realm through a combination of inborn honesty, personal courage and good fortune. His good fortune extends to finding a beautiful, spirited fairy girl friend; a very human girl who, for those who can see them, has wings. Though his land threatens to be destroyed by an army of evil trolls led by a spell-casting witch, our hero’s skillful sword play, patient endurance and firm sense of duty to his king leads ...more

This story, written for youth, has so much more to it than an exciting adventure into fantasy land for young minds. It is full of life lessons for any Christian,no matter what age, and the adventures themselves are enough to grasp and keep the attention of any youth, tender in age or at heart. I highly recommend it to all who love the Creator of the universe, whether it include fairies, witches, dragons, or whatever.

The character development in the story was great and seemed real. The author did an amazing job of being able to fully realize the character’s feelings. The dialogue in the book was a little overwhelming to say the least and the whole story development was not as strong as that of the characters.

Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

A Traditional Fantasy

This is a quick read. It is well written for a traditional fantasy. Samuel R.Choy has a good sense of humor in this book. I enjoyed it.
