Descrizione del libro

9 settembre 2013 Four Companions
The magician, Kod Hawklight, fears his use of enchantments will be greatly handicapped after the loss of one of his fingers. However, after he is summoned to heal three travelers, Kod discovers that one of them, the dwarf Olan Stronghelm, is carrying a map that reveals the location of an ancient stronghold. Along with the mysterious thief, Brehana Songsteel, and the fierce half-orc, Smunt, they follow the map through untamed forests, battling many obstacles along the way. If they survive the perils of the forest, will they find the lost city, and whatever treasure might still remain within?

4.0 su 5 stelle Good ol' fantasy 15 novembre 2013
Di Lydia Perversius - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
When you are told that the book given to you, is an "old school" fantasy, you pretty much know what to expect. It's one thing for a writer to be able to pull off a tale that focuses on action and character development nowadays, it's another to have four - not one, but four - of said characters keeping you on your toes through more than a hundred pages!

The Forging is the story of Brehana Songsteel, Olan Stronghelm, Kod Hawklight and Smunt the half-orc, who meet under strange - yet oddly fated - circumstances, and begin a journey based on Olan's map. A journey that is sure to become an adventure the likes of which they've never had before...

Tim Rose's first book of the Four Companion series is strongly influenced by Tolkien and Salvatore, and, while it was not mentioned, I did notice a few Elaine Cunningham points here and there (particularly from her Elfsong and Silver Shadows books). I enjoy all of those writers, so the writing style did not faze me in the least - on the contrary, I loved it! The pace was similar to an RPG game, and there were more than enough details to show that the writer did some serious research before he wrote it all down.

What is a good and very stong point of this book was the introduction. It escalated in layers, showing us a little bit of every character just a little while before they all met, and it served as a perfect "hook" to get any reader interested. The characters are all unique, and I don't mean just their race, they all thought and even acted in different ways, while still maintaining their unity as a group. I personally found Smunt to be my favorite of them all - always a sucker for the sarcastic, blunt ones, I'm afraid. There is a little something for everyone in there. Readers will find at least one of the main adventurers to their liking, and that guarantees flipping through the pages as fast as you can to see what happens next. 200+ pages full of adventure, action, humor and fantasy, are sure to bring even the most hardcore readers of the genre on their knees, begging to have a taste!

The only problem in all this, was the fact that it might be hard for those who are not familiar with this writing style and genre to fully enjoy the story. Still, I encourage you to try, as it will leave you with a very sweet aftertaste once you've reached the end of this particular adventure - side by side with the adventurers themselves, what more could you ask for?

5.0 su 5 stelle You'll love it! 21 marzo 2014
Di Rich Phillips, Jr - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
I gave this book a 5 star rating because, as I was reading a new and unknown author, I really didn't know what to expect and was thrilled to find that I was completely drawn in. I read through it very quickly and even found myself doing what I always do with good books like this: seek to sneak in a minute here and there because I just can't wait to find out what happens next. The book is action-packed and has enough bloody battles for any fan of fantasy who has a bit of a Dungeons and Dragons appreciation.

I really wonder where the story's going to go in the up-coming books and can't wait to read them. The characters developed well in this book and I believe I see the beginnings of a general theme coming into view: namely, that (without giving too much away) the various creature groups in this fantasy world, though at odds with each other, can (and have in the past?) come together to great benefit for all if they would break down their divisions, celebrate their diverse skills and virtues leaving behind what is truly evil.

This doesn't happen among the creature groups overall in The Forging, but within our adventurous foursome, a true breaking down of prejudice occurs and a microcosm of true brotherhood takes hold. This isn't to say that the members of our foursome are good by the absolute standard but their eyes are opening and the exciting journey will continue. I can't wait to read more!
4.0 su 5 stelle A good entry to the Fantasy genre 4 gennaio 2014
Di BellaChica - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I won this book in an exchange for an honest review.

The Forging is Tim Rose's debut novel into the fantasy genre. This novel contains the usual elements of dwarves, orcs, orgres, elves, magicians...you get the idea. The writing could be a bit more polished and I did find several type-o's.

Overall the story is quite simple; 4 friends on a quest. There's plenty of adventure and fighting with our protagonist getting their share of bumps and bruises.

I think what sets this story apart from typical fantasy novels is the fact that there are 4 of them working together. No one is stronger or smarter. Each brings his and her own strengths to the group. For a new writer in the field, Mr. Rose did an admirable job of meshing these 4 characters to make a cohesive and daunting adversary. On the flip side I would have liked to see more depth given to the characters, especially Breanna; perhaps have entire chapters devoted to just one character at a time. Mr. Rose does incorporate this concept but very fleetingly when he gives each character their moment of retrospection after a battle.

No Lord of the Rings or Hobbit, but a decent adventure story from someone who is trying his hand in a very hot genre right now.
5.0 su 5 stelle Simple but profound 26 novembre 2013

The Forging starts with a simple tale of exploration and adventure. Then the author goes to a deeper level by carving an intense psychological life for all his characters. He also makes the world a vivid one, where you can almost be there, and where each group of protagonists has its own way of life.
I'm definitely looking for the follow-up.

I bought this book because the cover art caught my eye and I'm glad I did because the content truly lived up to my expectations. I have been a fan of fantasy for as long as I can remember and this work captured my imagination and introduced me to a wonderful fantasy world, full of captivating and complex characters that I cannot wait to revisit in this author's subsequent works.
