    One thought on “In the Tower of the Wizard King”

    1. **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for honest review.** This book was a wild ride!Near non-stop action from the first few pages. Even during the slower parts, I found myself on edge, just waiting for something to happen. And something happens. Often.This is one of my favorite genre mashups. It's fantasy and romance and the same genre that I write in, as well, so it holds a special place for me. There is lots of magic and fanciful faraway lands to explore. The [...]

    2. I give this book 5 heartsWow what a fantastic story!I absolutely fell in love with Aoife, Sean, Niall, Fiona and Deaglann. When Aoife finds out that her father is dead she rushes home, but when she gets there her mom Fiona has gone missing. Nothing seems to be adding up, instead things are getting stranger, including her mom giving their house to Aoife's school girl crush Sean ( who happens to still make her heart race), and he seems determined to keep her out of the house.She won't take no for [...]

    3. In the Age of Wizards, Time is a commodity more valuable than gold.That is a great line. Michelle Miles has spun a great high fantasy tale that includes betrayal, love, magic and loss. This story has all of the makings for a great series. Miles has created rich characters and a complex world that will allow her to continue to explore different timelines along with different story lines. Miles has taken some traditional themes and made them her own, all of which are the makings of something speci [...]

    4. It's an engaging story read brilliantly by the narrator.As for the story:The book has a very strong and intriguing plotline as well as unforgettable characters. I liked the parallel narration of the present and the past as it made the story both more complicated and more involving; some scenes and situations, which at first could be baffling for the reader/listener got cleared up when the two timelines "met". I also liked the fact that the author doesn't flinch when it comes to describing the da [...]

    5. I loved this story! Totally loved the characters and the storyline (I mean how could you not with Wizards, Kings, Queens, Castles, Magic and the Fae). Michelle Miles brilliantly weaves twists and turns, love stories both past and present, secrets, betrayal and revenge, with multi dimensional characters, two different timelines and two different worlds. Whew! And she does this so effortlessly and seamless never leaving you lost or confused. I now cannot imagine it written Any. Other. Way. Each pa [...]

    6. I just finished reading and listening to the brilliantly narrated first volume of a new epic fantasy building on the concepts of separate realms for fae and humans whose time continua are not necessarily even relatively congruent. My first kudo would go to the author for providing a pronunciation guide to the Celtic names gracing many of the characters. I subvocalize and hate when I'm fighting an unfamiliar name. Second plaudits to the narrator who brought to life the various characters, even pr [...]

    7. I loved it. I thought it was going to be about the usual prince/princess betrothal, but to my surprise, it turned out differently as i got more into the book. The cover is what got me at first. It minded me of Morgan Rice where he has objects like a tower for the cover. That was instant attraction, but the first few pages did not seem like prince/princess marriage because it is set in present time human world. As i read on, Miles explains the connections the characters have by shifting us throug [...]

    8. I am not well-versed in the fantasy genre but love a good story regardless - and this fits the bill. This one pulls you in from the beginning and doesn't let go until the very end. There are a lot of twists and turns as you might imagine with time travel. I listened to it on audible and had to go back a couple of times in a chapter to make sure I understood the significance of a conversation or scene but that's more my fault as an audible reader. I was impressed with how the author was able to k [...]

    9. I received a free electronic copy of the book for an honest review. The beginning of the book was a bit slow, however, once getting further into the book I slowly began to enjoy it- Wizards, King's, Queen's, Magic and Fae. I enjoyed all of the Characters of the book, mostly Sean and Aoife adventures to save her mom and her life. The book did start to become dry at certain moments int he book, and I began to skim over parts, but all in all, definitely is a good read and a good storyline. Thanks f [...]

    10. I don't read fantasy too often, but there have been some that sucked me in. This is one of those. The mix of past and present stories brings the reader full circle and will keep you engrossed in the story. Beware though, you may not want to put the book down! To the author with throwing the past/present twists into the mix the way you did, you get two thumbs up from me! And now I'm looking forward to book 2 in the series.

    11. Wow. I don't know what I expected, but this book floored me. I was swept up into the story, a story like no other. An amazing tale that was captivating from beginning to end.

    12. Generic and a bit dull in places. In need of a good editor.There were some well written sections that I started to get into, but then I'd hit a section where paragraphs seemed to be repeated and already explained parts of the story were explained again.

    13. If her mother's car is still parked in the driveway of the home, and no one has gone into the house, why is it assumed she's missing?? And this book was edited? Gimme a break!
