I reviewed these books some time ago, but thought they were good enough to warrant posting those reviews again. Keep in mind, my reviews are based solely on my impressions of the books – I don’t give you the synopsis of them – you can find those on Amazon. But Charles Yallowitz has written some good books in this series. I highly recommend all of these books. Even if you think you are not a fantasy reader, I think you will enjoy them. They are well written and have sold well. So, what are you waiting for? You can buy all three for less than $5.
Beginning of a Hero is Book One. And I gave it five stars. It is selling for only 99 cents!
I won’t go through the synopsis. You can read that on your own.
This was a good book. No, it was a great book. There was adventure, a teensy bit of romance, great characters who were described in wonderful detail, and a story that kept you wanting to read more.
I’m not a typical fantasy genre reader. In fact, I bought this book and read several books before this one. I was putting it off because I was sure I wouldn’t like it. What a surprise. From the very beginning, I was drawn into the book. I was nervous partly because I dislike reading books where I can’t comfortably pronounce names. My preconceived idea that that would be the case with this book was thrown out the window. Okay, so all my preconceived notions were false.
This is the first book in a series. Definitely read this book. You won’t be disappointed. I loved it and have already downloaded #2, Prodigy of Rainbow Tower.
Prodigy of Rainbow Tower is Book two in the series. And again, I gave this book five stars. This book is only 99 cents!
As a non-fantasy reader, I jumped into Beginnings of a Hero in the Legends of Windemere series and really enjoyed it. So, it made perfect sense for me to read the next book in the series, Prodigy of Rainbow Tower.
The adventures continued – and I mean adventures, as in many adventures. Always with a twist and always fun. The humor in these books makes me smile – but the adventures were amazing. Luke and Nyx and the others jumped from one interesting battle into another. I know what you’re thinking – that they always survive unscathed. Not so, there were a couple of times that I was sure someone wasn’t going to make it with a healing potion in time. But that added to the heart pounding fun.
Really, I don’t typically read these kind of books. But I highly recommend these. They are well written and very entertaining.
Book Three in the Legends of Windemere series is Allure of the Gypsies. I gave this book five stars also. This book is $2.99.
I started reading this series not long after it was released. Beginning of a Hero reeled me in to Windemere. Prodigy sucked me even further in to the characters and events. Allure of the Gypsies was more engaging. There was great character development and as we follow Luke back to his home town, we learn more about his history and why he does things and thinks the way he does. Add in Nyx and now Sari, stir in the Lich and Trinity and Kalam and Isaiah and you have the makings of a great book. There are plenty of adventures thrown in to spice it up.
If you are looking for a grand fantasy book (series), I highly recommend Legends of Windemere. They are easy books to follow and I know I can’t wait for the next book in the series. You should also check out the author page for Charles Yallowitz and look at his other books.
