  1. This first episode sets the stage for what looks to be shaping up to be a very standard but quite entertaining fantasy novel.First, we re introduced to Fallon A staff wielding local law enforcer, he s always hungered for the change to be a hero However, as a middle aged family man with a son in ill health and a wife suffering from depression and anxiety, he seems unlikely to get his chance However, when the Duke s ship runs aground outside his village, mysteriously abandoned, he sees a This first episode sets the stage for what looks to be shaping up to be a very standard but quite entertaining fantasy novel.First, we re introduced to Fallon A staff wielding local law enforcer, he s always hungered for the change to be a hero However, as a middle aged family man with a son in ill health and a wife suffering from depre...

  2. So far nothing novel or new to the fantasy genre, but an interesting set up as far as the events go.The characters are a bit bland, and I hope that the author takes the time to develop them a bit .

  3. So where do I begin Well, I didn t love this book, but I didn t hate it either In all fairness I thought it was a promising start to a five part book It had many positives an intriguing premise and mystery some interesting characters some of them were just plain cliched though and a fascinating world that was richly described in this episode Fallon was a good protagonist, and I really enjoyed how the story motored along at a reasonable pace However, there were some negatives for So where do I begin Well, I didn t love this book, but I didn t hate it either In all fairness I thought it was a promising start to a five part book It had many positives an intriguing premise and mystery some interesting characters some of them were just plain cliched though and a fascinating world that was richly described in this episode Fallon was a good protagonist, and I really enjoyed how the story motored along at a reasonable pace However, there were some negatives for me Firstly I found some of the characters were cliched and stereotyped For example the good prince is handsome and adored by the people and the bad prince is deformed and perverted In this day and age...

  7. Originally published at West Coast Book Reviews.As the first Episode in a series, I was prepared for the format players find their places, evil takes a foothold, good gives us a reason to get a comfy chair in their corner and a get the next one in the series NOW cliffhanger.Done and done.It also has two things I used to terrify myself with years ago witch burnings and unnatural faceless villains.I like Fallon as a soldier and a family man and also Bridgit, she s got a lottoughness in her Originally published at West Coast Book Reviews.As the first Episode in a series, I was prepared for the format players find their places, evil takes a foothold, good gives us a reason to get a comfy chair in their corner and a get the next one in the series NOW cliffhanger.Done and done.It also has two things I used to terrify myself with years ago witch burnings and unnatural faceless villains.I like Fallon as a soldier and a family man and als...

I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you It was the cover that drew me to The Last Quarrel, because, hello, I kind of like it But, unfortunately, this book wasn t for me I did like the joking and bickering between the characters but yeah, I m sorry, I wish I had liked it .Thanks again for the arcI received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an hones...

  9. It was ok What I didn t like is that the pacing is too slow Almost nothing happens in the book I don t know, maybe it s because it s so short shrug I also think that some sentence don t flow the right away and get the narrativeclunky.The characters were ok good The stor...

  11. Episode 1 of 4 This book displays signs of good qualities, wrapped up in some choices which might not be so good The plot and characterisation show clear promise and, whilst it is an enjoyable enough book to read, the enjoyment is marred somewhat in that it appears to only be a quarter of a book This could be seen as being hinted at in the title with the use of Episode 1, but it still feels a little as if you have been robbed when it ends with very little having happened It feels a little Episode 1 of 4 This book displays signs of good qualities, wrapped up in some choices which might not be so good The plot and characterisation show clear promise and, whilst it is an enjoyable enough book to read, the enjoyment is marred somewhat in that it appears to only be a quarter of a book This could be seen as being hinted at in the title with the use of Episode 1, but it still feels a little as if you have been robbed when it ends with very little having happened It feels a little unfinished even though it is clear the story will be taken up in Episode 2, mostly on account of the fact that the story only just feels like it is getting going when it ends That said, it is still a book worth reading and it has prompted me to read the next episodes in order to read the whole story and reach a full, fair and complete conclusion as to its merits, such as they may be.This feels like a new style of book it is very short and feelsin line with the style of Dickens publishing of his work...

  12. See the complete review posted on Book Frivolity Check out other Fantasy and Historical Fiction ruminations there as well Here s the thing, it s very hard to rate and review part of a book I like the concept of releasing a fantasy book in a series of fortnightly episodes 5 I believe, then wrapped up into one later down the track , but it renders the reviewer a bit stumped I can say it s very well structured, the writing is clear and concise, and it seems to be a good story line The See the complete review posted on Book Frivolity Check out other Fantasy and Historical Fiction ruminations there as well Here s the thing, it s very hard to rate and review part of a book I like the concept of releasing a fantasy book in a series of fortnightly episodes 5 I believe, then wrapped up into one later down the track , but it renders the reviewer a bit stumped I can say it s very well structured, the writing is clear and concise, and it seems to be a good story line The prologue does make me want to read on, the how and why it occurs intrigues me, plus the end of the book is quite the cliffhang...

  13. The Last Quarrel has all the makings of a really good book It s well written, and the characters are engaging at least some of them , but the problem is that it s NOT a full book, just the first part of a longer novel, cut and thrown out there all by itself.Now I know that the cover says Episode 1, but when I read a series or watch one, I expect each episode to have a finished story with a larger overlaying arc continued from episode to episode It s not the case here The Last Quarrel is slow The Last Quarrel has all the makings of a really good book It s well written, and the characters are engaging at least some of them , but the problem is that it s NOT a full book, just the first part of a longer novel, cut and thrown out there all by itself.Now I know that the cover says Episode 1, but when I read a series or watch one, I expect each episode to have a finished story with a larger overlaying arc continued from episode to episode It s not the case here The Last Quarrel is slow to pick up, introducing all the characters and putting the worldbuilding in place like you would expect in a full length novel It plants the hook, set up the intrigue then ends The episode ends on a cliffhanger, but worse than that, it explains nothing, reso...
