tingling read ……. Highly Recommended ……. 5 stars
Talented writer Tuttle continues his spell binding Sword
of Heaven series with another original segment of the tale. As with
others in the series Tuttle includes both a detailed map of the world he
has created and a recap of the Sword of Heavens narrative to date.
From the opening lines of Book 5 Emerald of the
Elves when a resounding scream brings everyone to alert right down
to the last paragraphs when the morning sun breaks across the sky the
reader is held captivated. Tuttle continues his story line, subplot
convoluted tale with a deftness not often found, transitions are handled
with skill keeping the flow of reading smooth and without interruption
as the captivated reader is moved from imbroglio to predicament .
By the time the reader is ready to begin Book 5 the
characters are old friends. Readers are treated to more of writer
Tuttle’s first class exchanges between various players, zestful action
and pleasantly puzzling incertitude. Friction in abundance is present,
handled with skill and resolved to the satisfaction of the reader.
Dialogue between characters is believable, filled with emotion and
downright gritty at times. Motivation behind character action is
reasonable, acceptable and something the reader can feel themselves
capable of accomplishing in a similar circumstance.
Zenith of the narrative was gratifying, the reader
can anticipate this particular outcome without quandary or controversy.
The Culmination was a natural outcome of the action in this well written
tale crafted by a master story-teller.
Excellent book for a weekend home when weather
won’t let you get out much, or a week at the beach.
Enjoyed the read, happy to recommend.
