I found The Goblets Immortal to be a very unique and fun read. Aiden (the main character) is very likeable in a sort of gullable, gentle giant kind of way. This may feel like a random comparison, but he actually reminded me a lot of Dunk from A Knight of the Seven Kindgoms as gets pushed and pulled in many different directions, meets other people and beings, and visits land where the customs and traditions are unfamiliar to him.

If Aiden is Dunk, then Slaine is his Egg: a traveling companion who

3.5 out of 5 .. This reviews appears on www.deadheadreviews.com -

It has been many years since I’ve read anything in the fantasy genre, save The Hobbit. Seeing as I’ve made a promise this year to continue expanding what I read, I thought I would give The Goblets Immortal a chance at reeling me back into the land of mystical creatures and wizards.

The synopsis sounds simple enough – a magical man (considered Blest) is on the run for presumably making his parents disappear, all the while being prodd

This is a tale of magic and fantasy. Aiden has a talent for making things disappear and reappear, including himself. When a friend betrays him he uses this to escape. He meets a gang of Roma, who try to poison him but in recompense he is given a goblet. He then is drawn to four Elves, who want the goblet in exchange for their ‘slave’, Slàine.

But, he decides to leave taking Slàine with him and he ends up having to throw the goblet to the Elves to escape.

Aiden begins to have dreams where an evil m

E-ARC received courtesy of Flame Tree Press and Anne Cater, Queen of Blog Tours.

When Anne sent this book around to her Random Things associates, I jumped on it. Normally an epic fantasy with such a low page count would give me vibes of "There can't possibly be enough worldbuilding in this book to satisfy me, and the pace is probably way too rushed." Except that almost a year ago, I received an ARC of another epic fantasy with a similar fee

My Rating 1.5/5

When I started reading The Goblets Immortal it, unfortunately, I immediately felt that this will be a story that needed a little bit more work and beta reading. For the best part of it, it was an okay just a simple fantasy story, but towards the end, the repetition drove me crazy. In my opinion, this is a book that targets readers that don't usually read fantasy. The story is very basic: the chosen one, a magic artefact (or

The Goblets Immortal is a high fantasy, magic, mystery filled story. Aidan has had a troubled past, his family is gone and he's been on the run. He also has magic that allows him to summon and dismiss things at will. After selling his estate, then being screwed over by his friend, Aidan finds himself back on the run again.

He encounters a tribe of people called Romas who give him a strange goblet. To find out more he is called by the

It’s been a while since I read a fabulous fantasy adventure, and “The Goblets Immortal” did not disappoint!

The author did a fantastic job in writing this novel. What I loved about the tale is the mystery of the plot and the characters. Even after reading this book, you feel like there is so much more to the characters you don’t know. I enjoyed Aiden, Slaine, and even Larkin and how we only saw a part of them. The author also

Just shut up already!

First thing to note here – this is the start of a series and ends on a cliffhanger, with no sequel mention as of yet, nor a series for it to be based in. Although, I assume, it will be based around these Goblets Immortal.

In Beth Ovlermsyer’s strange world, magic comes from The Goblets Immortal (hard from Flame Tree Press). Aiden Ingledark knows nothing of the six goblets until he barely escapes capture. Aiden can summon non-iron objects to him or dissolve the into a nothingness that he can later retrieve them from. He has always supposed he was responsible for his parent’s deaths. Hunted by Lord Dewhurst he is almost trapped by a friend who betrayed him. Then a witch, Meraude, come into his dreams, asking him to ...more

I read this book like a river; its surface glistened with the promise of sunken depths. Yet ultimately, my engagement with the story fell victim to the blithe construction of the relationship between the two main characters.

Above its depths, The Goblets Immortal is a well-crafted plot that binds you to the character’s destinies, especially Slaíne, a woman enslaved by elves

The Goblets Immortal is fairly unusual for a fantasy novel in that it's quite a short book. This means that there isn't a great deal of world building here but consequently, the action begins almost immediately.
The book opens to find Aiden making a deal with an old friend and it's clear from the start that he isn't an ordinary man but has unique magical abilities. Having read quite a few fantasy novels, I enjoyed discovering powers I've not come across before - Aiden can Summon or Dismi

*Thanks to Flame Tree Press and author Beth Overmyer for a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Goblets Immortal is the first book in a trilogy. The second book, Holes in the Veil, is due to be published in February 2021.

In this world, people who can use magic are called the "Blest." Aidan has been living an apparently quiet life in his village, trying not to attract too much attention with his skill of being able to Summon and Dismiss objects (and sometimes people!) at wil

The Goblets Immortal is my kind of fantasy. It is a well-paced, character driven novel that immediately pulled me in and wouldn’t let me put it down.

I absolutely love character driven novels. Particularly, character driven, fantasy novels. Far too often, fantasy is bogged down by excessive world building. I think Beth Overmyer did and incredible job balancing world-building with character building, giving us just enough of the world to be drawn in.

Focusing on the characters, made this story real

 Reading Reindeer 2021 On Proxima Centauri
An engagingly-written and very compelling fantasy which impelled from Page One. Emotionally touching with rapid-fire sword-and-sorcery action, THE GOBLETS IMMORTAL focuses on Aidan, a magic-possesser in a land where its existence is forbidden, and a new player, Meraude, a mage who is anti-magic. I anticipate more from author Beth Overmyer.

A promising series opener, with adventure, sympathetic characters, and a unique system of magic. Aidan and Slaíne are an unlikely but engaging pair, on the run from their pasts, seeking to solve the mysteries of the Blest and the curious effects of the Goblets. I look forward to seeing their adventures continue in the sequel next year.

I liked this book well enough. There were just no explanations of things. You get thrown the story after it had already started, like being late to the movies. There is no real explanation of what happened to his parents and what the goblets are for. It was fast paced enough to get through it. I didn't like the relationship between Aidien and Slaine. It almost seems abusive the way he starts forcing himself on her. It's not explained at all why he feels the compulsion to have sex with her. I was ...more
