~Disclaimer: I received this book for free in a giveaway~

Pros: Great world building (created an engaging and unique universe), likable lead, intrigue, action scattered throughout story and interesting character dynamics.

Cons: Fell into some tropes, back and forth hot and cold romance gets annoying, built up to a rather short climax.

With all that said...I do want to read the sequel. I do want to know more about the lead character and what is going on in this world. I would like to see more of th

I wasn’t sure at first, but The Archer of the Lake soon pulled me in. It was thoroughly enjoyable and easy to read, perfect for a rainy Sunday. It has a wonderful set of characters and I certainly hope we haven’t seen the last of Feraan.

The story took me along with it, fast paced, with enough detail of the immediate situations to draw a picture of this Elven world and beyond, but not so much to slow the pace.

The book in itself is well resolved, but I can’t but feel there are many more stories wa

Exciting story telling

Ms Michael's story telling is inventive and exciting. It is fantasy SCI but it is different than any I've ever read. It is definitely worth reading. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Really enjoyed it. There were a few things I might have done differently but the book really held my attention and I'm really glad I got to read it. The characters were interesting, the story had me interested the moment I started reading, and the build up to the end was satisfying. Looking forward to the next one. ...more

“When she turned to accept her crown from Gwyndolyn, Feraan saw that her face was flushed from drink and excitement. Her pale hair cascaded over her shoulders, shining like glittering moonlight. She was warm and soft, and he knew that because he had felt her lips before. The green stems from her flower crown rested above her pointed ears, and though Caelfel was not the picture of nobility, Feraan could admit she was beautiful.” 0 likes
