The brave warrior Searon is haunted by the deaths of his wife and
children at the hands of the savage reptilian draeyks, who are on
a bloodthirsty rampage. He walks the land of Calthoria alone and
thirsty for vengeance. He hunts the creatures down one by one,
showing no mercy.

murderous draeyks. Lucky for him, the powe

Sorry for the late posting of this review but when I finished reading this I started reading another book and kind of forgot to do this. Anyway, this was a great story. I loved Searon(sp?) and his desire to destroy those which killed his true love and his child. His journey was fraught with a lot of suspence for me and I always felt he would die in the middle. Thanks god he didn't. The wizard was a pistol, in my opinion, a regular jokester and he was great in this story.

Anyway, I'm looking forwa

I have worked on this novel for over 7 years, and completely rewritten it over 5 times. It was a success on Wattpad, where it had over 2.5 Million Reads, 17,000 votes, and over 1,000 comments. I had great feedback there, most of my negative was about needing an editor. It is now published on Amazon, I got an editor and a cover designer, and I'm excited to share this novel with you. It was on Wattpad for over 3 years as a featured read. While it may not be the best book out there, I was happy ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I was hooked and found myself wanting to find time to keep reading although I typically only read on airplanes. At the end, I wanted to pick up a sequel right away and I am really looking forward to reading the next installment.

The author makes you feel like you're right there in the scene and you can completely feel the emotions of the characters. I am really impressed. I don't read very many fantasy novels, but this one worked and I believe people who don't normally

Fantasy is not my normal go to genre and many times their length turns me off. However this one was just the right length for the story. The author does a great job of world building and giving us creative characters to fill the world up with. Although the right length for the storyline at times it did feel a bit drawn out which is the only reason it didn't get the five stars. I enjoyed this novel and would recommend it to my fantasy fans out there.

I am admittedly not a huge fantasy reader, but I thoroughly enjoyed THE CRIMSON CLAYMORE. Craig's world-building is stellar, and Searon is a strong character that grows even more when he learns to trust the help of others along his path for vengeance. If you're looking for a justice-seeking, one-man show who'll go toe-to-toe with anyone who crosses his path, then this is the book for you. You never want to be on the wrong end of Searon's crimson claymore

This is an entertaining fantasy novel with heroes and villains, witches, mythical creatures, elves, faeries and naughty amazon women. I was about to put it into my stack of pending reads when I got hooked after a brief read and had to read it to the end. Kudos to the author…

I was provided with an electronic copy in return for an honest review.

Sometimes you need a square jawed hero with a really big sword, a beautiful woodlands creature with attitude and a vicious foe. The Crimson Claymore has them all.

I really enjoyed this book. I found the characters likable and the story entertaining. There's a good mix of characters with a mission to accomplish. I was on the edge of my seat, staying up late at night trying to finish the book. I will say my favorite characters were the snarky magician and tough kheshlar warrior. Searon is the main character, and he's interesting you want him to succeed. But I gravitate to the "side" characters, especially if they have an attitude. Kudos for the map and the ...more

It took me a long time to finish this book because I'm not really a fan of epic fantasies, but this was definitely time well spent. Characters are everything for me, and I was right there with the main character, Searon, on his quest to right a horrible wrong done to him and his family. And even though his journey is filled with plenty of darkness and danger, the author managed to insert some humor amidst the vivid descriptions of action-filled battles and make me care about the peripheral ...more

Great characters in this high fantasy. Detailed story-telling (sometimes too much for my taste.) Leaves the reader wanting to know what happens next, but I hear the second books is coming soon.

This is a 5-Star story of a fantasy world, filled with relentless action and vivid details that bring the characters and the settings to life.
