Read about this reaction to The Bow of Destiny from a reader this week.
A reader contacted me this week about her reading of The Bow of Destiny. We’ve had an email conversation which I totally enjoy (anyone interested in talking about the books, just send me and email, comment here, or catch me on a social media channel).
Here’s a quote from the message after the reader finished the book:
“This morning I went back and reread the short story about the mystic Withling order. It was more meaningful after reading the book. Now I’m reading the first chapter again to understand Athson’s visions. I’ll have to buy the next book in the series when I’m in a place with good internet. Your writing reminds me of Lord of the Rings– a big compliment as that was one of my favorite books growing up and what got me interested in reading.”
The referenced short story is What Is Needed which is backstory for the Withling order. That’s a good place to start the series if you like.
I’m not going to giveaway anything regarding the content of Athson’s visions, but it’s interesting the reader wanted to review those parts. Athson is a complicated character who knows things are not right with him, but he believes he still makes good decisions.
As to The Lord of the Rings, that is a high compliment. My hope is that I’ve taken the classic epic fantasy and given it a more current treatment of the genre.
That’s all for today with that quick note. If you have something you want to share about the series (or have already), please let me know where you’ve done that so I can respond to it. Interested in the series? Find out more from The Bow of Hart Saga series page on this site, or have a look at the books on Amazon.
