Shadow Swarm - Blog Tour and Giveaway

Review and Giveaway- Shadow Swarm by D. Robert Pease

My Review:

Shadow Swarm is a great novel! It fits into the high fantasy genre- with the character's names. I was so glad that there was a list to keep track of who was who and what everything meant. It is something I love and hate about the fantasy realm.

I enjoyed reading about Aberthol's adventures. I connected with his struggle to find out who he was and how to save people. It quite a change in doing things that he had to find out himself.
His companions were quite the characters! And who can resist a dragon!  My favourite character was Lexy, who had so much spirit. He was really fun to read about. 
I thought the story-line was epic and well written. There was a lot of details, but the novel didn't over describe events either. Although one of the negatives is that the story doesn't reveal all- like how Aberthol is reborn- I am hoping that it is made clear in a new story.

4.5 stars and I am excited that this is part of a series. I personally would love to read more of Pease's works.

  About the book: 

Aberthol Nauile doesn’t know that he once led legions in a war that raged since the dawn of time, against an enemy that cannot be killed. He doesn’t know that he rode on a dragon with his father, and saw his mother die while giving birth to him. He doesn’t know that he once saved his great, great, great grandfather by defeating the black enemy on the slopes of a volcano. Aberthol doesn’t know that he beheld the creation of the world, as his grandfather eight generations before took the planet ravaged by a war of the gods and began anew. All he knows is that he awoke in a coffin in a tomb, and now the whole world thinks he is their savior. All he really wants to know is his name, and why he keeps hearing voices in his head.Get Shadow Swarm through Amazon or Barnes & Noble. 

About the author: 

D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn't been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer's Sirens. It's not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he brings to life. Connect with D. Robert on his website, Facebook, Twitter,or GoodReads.
