Descrição do produto

In a future where ignorance has destroyed the world that we know, humans are slaves and Mages - advanced beings with abilities beyond everyday reach - rule the land.
Avalon is one such Mage. Barely eighteen years of age, she wields the gift of fire yet she is unable to control it. She leaves her family in the dead of night and heads to the city of Frost Arch, her future seemingly grim.
Will Avalon be able to overcome the trials that befall her? Will she be able to save the ones she loves and stay strong within herself?
Time will tell.

2.0 de 5 estrelas Disappointed 12 de julho de 2015
Por Allison D. Roberts - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I wanted to like this book because it had good reviews and is by an Australian fantasy writer, but I only slogged through it to make sure it didn't get better before writing this review. I really wish I had read Angela Perry's review as I think it sums up most of my feelings perfectly. My first problem with the book was the appalling grammar. Wrong words, wrong tenses, wrong possessives... over and over again. I know copy editing is becoming a lost profession, but I believe that is one of the functions of the writing groups to help new writers. The next problem is that it is all tell and no show. **Spoilers** The world is an interesting concept which is why I think a lot of people have given the book higher reviews, but it needs more development. Plus, it should be revealed in a more interesting way. The main character seems to have lived 18 years in this world a mere day's drive away from the city the novel takes place in and knows NOTHING ABOUT IT which is just bizarre. Yes, she wasn't very social, but she should have picked up the basics like who runs the nearest city and the basic power structure of her world. I also have an issue that the first thing the main character does is steal the fox without really any knowledge of whose fox it was or what they were going to do with it. She guesses that it is going to be harmed, but that isn't really clear. I get the general feeling that we are supposed to think Elvira Frost is an evil woman considering the climax of the book, but we really never get enough information about her to know for sure. Even at the climax she is just defending herself from the main character who is trying to steal from her again. All we really know about her is that she runs the city, she makes it snow all the time because of her power, she commissioned the creation of a flying fox guard animal that was stolen from her by the main character, and when the main character tries to steal it again, she defends herself and her property. Overall I was disappointed in the writing and the predictable plot. I will note that as someone in my 30's, I was not the target audience, and I would likely have been more forgiving at 13. However, there are lots of better teen fantasy that I would recommend to my 13 year old self. I do think that writing a book at all is an accomplishment, and I hope that the writer seeks out writing groups and other resources and continues to write, write, write as time and experience should improve the writing and story quality.

2.0 de 5 estrelas Has potential, lacks polish 4 de setembro de 2012
Por Joseph D Intranuovo - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I was hopeful when I chose this book to read. I'm a fan of fantasy; I like magic and mages and all that comes with it. Unfortunately, after the title page, everything fell flat. Ms. Bloomfield's story had a ton of potential, but that potential was never shaped into a convincing or entertaining read.

The fantasy setting uses the traditional middle-aged culture/society (though it is not actually taking place in the past), but at times Ms. Bloomfield's mix of that time period's way of speaking with modern phrases made it difficult to feel emerged in a fantasy world.

Her characters, specifically the main character of Avalon, gain no sympathy from the reader. I could not cheer for Avalon or feel bad about her getting into trouble and danger, primarily because it was always her fault (the one exception to this would be the incident with her employer's son. Not her fault. I felt bad. Not cool.) Ultimately, Avalon came off as a character who never considered the consequences of her actions, and just dug deeper and deeper holes for herself as the story moved on. In the climactic chapters of the novel, I found myself feeling bad for the supposed villain because he or she didn't really appear to do anything wrong.

From an editing standpoint, the author is confusing at times; her ideas and sentences seemed out of order, as if she was attempting to write out too many ideas at once or had prematurely left a concept. But the biggest deterrent of all was technical. The grammatical errors in this book were astounding. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation seemed unimportant. While even the most heavily edited book still has mistakes, the errors in Frost Arch occurred so frequently that I began to focus more on when the next one would pop up instead of the story.

(In all fairness to Ms. Bloomfield, I did take note that as of August 16, 2012, she has updated the Kindle files to fix "grammatical, spelling, and syntax errors." I downloaded this book in July 2012, so I just missed the update. I hope that she was able to fix all of the errors. At the least, it would make the reading of this book less frustrating.)

Ultimately, I was disappointed because both Kate Bloomfield and her novel have such potential. Her concept of Mages replacing humans is an interesting one; the problem that the author faces is that her main character is not. If portions of this book could be expanded upon or rewritten, Book One of the Fire Mage Trilogy might actually persuade a reader to purchase Book Two.

2.0 de 5 estrelas A bit juvenile for my taste 30 de julho de 2013
Por K. Roy - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I'm a bit disappointed that I bought the whole trilogy outright. I saw all the good reviews for the books and thought that they must be really good. I should have read the negative reviews, too.

I don't want to be completely harsh as I understand this is a self-published novel by someone trying to follow her passion. I can sympathize. But I'm still pretty disappointed in the book, regardless.

As others have mentioned, there's the general grammar and spelling errors throughout. Sometimes it was clear the author pulled out a thesaurus to find big words to insert when more simple descriptions would have fit the overall tone of the book better.

I go back and forth trying to figure out if this book is supposed to be for tweens or adults. Most of the scenarios have a very teen-like approach and then at some points she throws in an alarming adult situation that just doesn't seem to sit easily with the rest of the content and feel.

I am continually irritated by the heroine's complaining about having bad luck when clearly she makes continuous stupid decisions over and over and over. "Hey, I was told not to go up there. But I just can't help it, I'm going up there. Oh no, I got found out! Why me? What did I do wrong?" The only person victimizing her is herself.

I'm going to take the rest of these books to the local used book store. I'm pretty disappointed with them. I do imagine that the author will get better with more practice - and especially if she gets the assistance of a great editor. She's got unique ideas, just needs more practice pulling them all together in a more engaging manner.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Magical ... But Predictable ... 24 de maio de 2012
Por 4 Lil Lambs - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
The prologue gives an excellent overview of the setting and culture where Avalon lives. This is a world over 1,000 years after the collapse of our world, a popular setting. There was a huge war between the magic power-weilding Mages, and the technical Humans. The Mages won, and all Humans were treated as nothing more than work beasts, without rights or feeling or language. ---- It was feared that Avalon's little sister had been born a human, and their family went to great lengths to hide her.

----- Basic Plot ----

Avalon is a Fire Mage, but she has very little control of her powers. Both of her parents are also Fire Mages. She also has a younger sister which shows no talent at all. After several near disasters with her sister, Avalon decides that the best choice is for her to run away.

She finds a ride with the old man that has a delivery mail service. He allows her to ride in his carriage, with the instructions to leave a small box alone - as it contains a dangerous animal found in the wild. By the end of the ride, she decides to rescue the little animal from a life as a science experiment.

She finally arrives at a city, Frost Arch, where it is the depth of winter. In fact, it is always winter here. She quickly finds a job, lighting fires at the Forsythe manor house, and warming up the tubs of water. She meets a young man, Jack, who is the Healer there, and helps her find the house and get settled. He teaches her all the duties that she will be performing, and helps her learn her routines. She enjoys his friendly helpfulness and counts him as her first real friend. She learns most of what she needs to know to survive in the real world from Jack. She also meets a black haired girl named Raeven, who works at the post office.

Her first night, she discovers that the little animal that she rescued and she thought she had let free, was still with her. It was a tiny fox with wings, and he is able to camouflage himself, and appears to be able to understand her. It doesn't stay tiny for long, and by the end of the week, Jack has discovered her pet, and joined her in an attempt to hide it.

Jack talks to his friend Camryn, who raises and trains the Master's Pegasi horses. Camryn reluctantly agrees to hide the pup in a stall, and quickly becomes attached to the little creature. Within days, he has grown as large as most of her horses. They decide to train him to fly, but Hawthorne seems to be tethered to the ground and is unable to soar.

The Forsythe's have two grown children named Noah and Rain. Avalon catches Noah's eye the first night he arrives. He quickly becomes attached to her and grants her many favors, seeming to enjoy her company. She has no idea why Jack and Camryn are so concerned that she stay away from Noah. It is apparent that they know something they are hiding from her, and so she hides his growing attention from her new friends. One night ends very badly, and Noah is gone the next day. Avalon is much the wiser; unfortunately, the event has caused her to lose her powers.

Nothing Jack does seems to help her regain her powers, but he teaches her to light fire the old way, with matches.. Charles lets her stay, for now, doing more housework and other light duty in hopes that she will recover her powers. During this time, Jack urges her to try getting Hawthorne to fly with her on his back, and it works. And then suddenly, Hawthorn disappears.

Things go from bad to worse, as Avalon gives in to curiosity, and finds a door at the top of a forbidden staircase. She slips inside and finds that her Master has much to hide - forbidden items from the ancient days are throughout the room ..., and then Master Forsythe returns. Almost - she gets away with it by hiding, and then something happens; she is discovered and damages many items, including Mr. Forsythe's face, while she tries to escape. She is now a fugitive. Soon she is captured, and placed in a prison for humans.

To her amazement, Jack and Raeven rescue her. After recovering at Raeven's house, the three of them make plans to rescue Hawthorne, who has been captured by Miss Frost - the ruler Mage of the city.

The book is fairly well written, and I found myself easily drawn into the characters and the story. It was easy to become involved in the world, but it did seem to take forever to develop the plot. Plus, if you were reading carefully, the ending is quite predictable. It is a lengthy book, but enough new material keeps popping up to keep it more enjoyable than not.

I'm fairly picky when it comes to this genre and downloaded this one on a whim. I didn't realize that it was YA Fantasy until I started reading it. No problem, so many protagonists in the sci-fi/fantasy genre fall into the YA category I've lost count. How old was Ender Wiggin when that series started? That being said, this was an easy, entertaining, and captivating read. The author hits on the proven factors that will draw and keep people. Her characters are interesting and she give just enough detail about them to make you like the heroes and dislike the bad guys. She's a good writer. I got the YA part when the flirting and adolescent sexual tension starts entering the picture but the author handles it in a tasteful way. It doesn't BECOME the story. It's simply a realistic underlying aspect of close relationships. The author handles it just like that....doesn't get too annoying and doesn't distract too much from the main story.

On the flip side, I would like to have seen a little more detail about the world that's presented and how it came to be such. I think the author misses a great opportunity but that probably wasn't her goal. I forgive her. Not every fantasy writer must create a new language, history, and geography a la Tolkein. I did love how the author was meticulous in making sure we knew the power of each mage in the book. It's the logical thing to want to know that whenever meeting a new mage in the world she created and she got that.

I couldn't help but be annoyed by the predictably clueless, socially inept, selfish, and hardheaded protagonist in Avalon....then again I'm middle aged and learn more quickly from my mistakes than I did when I was 19. I had a similar annoyance with Harry Potter...and an number of main stream YA protagonists.

I should point out that I recommend reading the whole series. It doesn't fizzle out like so many do. It's a good read til the end. I wasn't disappointed when the series ended but I was definitively satisfied. Well done, Ms. Bloomfield
