    One thought on “The Midnight Dunes”

    1. I was quite pleasantly surprised when Steven Kelliher emailed me about the third book coming out in November. I had not expected this book to be released so soon as it was on my anticipated releases for 2018. Luckily for me I did not have to wait.The Midnight Dunes is already the third book in the Landkist saga. I have to say that this is growing to become a favorite fantasy series. While I might not rate this book 5 stars as I did the second book, this has absolutely nothing to do with the writ [...]

    2. Steven Kelliher has done a rare thing - a series that improves as it progresses from its premise, owing in part it seems from his very active engagement in feedback from his readers and the maturing of his Art. Looking back, you will see a pair of three star reviews from me for his previous two books, faintly damning the last with this line, "t wasn't bad, but it was never great. Standard fantasy fare, mostly - the various tropes were there there, and handled appropriately, but after the first b [...]

    3. To start with I got a copy for a honest review but I bought it and would have anyway mainly due to a love of the first two books and the continued development of Steven as a author.Still I find it hard to get over the start of the first book which delved straight in to a battle .So this journey has brought us here and taught us a lot over the course of three books , we have seen Steven grow in confidence and mature into a first class author. Right from the start in this book you feel comfortable [...]

    4. I am just going to start with I loved this book. In Midnight Dunes we follow Talmir, Iyana, and the group that split off during The Emerald Blade. The younger characters really grow and develop in this story. The story really helps to expand the world and we learn a lot more about the history of the Landkist and Valley people in general. I think the new characters introduced in this book are some of the best in the series and I found a favorite character that surprised me. It goes without saying [...]

    5. Can't wait for the next oneSteven has hit his stride. I appreciated the story in the first two books, but did not feel the story of the characters were as well developed as this one. It was truly a pleasure to read. You feel the angst and internal conflict each character has. It defines the story and creates a connection to each of them. True to Steven's form, the ending is well crafted and unexpected.Enjoy the read, you will be glad you did.

    6. The Landkist Saga series is a series that just keeps getting better and better, it draws you in and keeps you addicted to find out what else is going to happen! I received this as a advanced readers copy, and I wasn't disappointed! In my honest opinion I feel this was the best book out of the series so far! Great read!

    7. I've got an ARC in exchange of a honest review.I've been debating between 3 and 4 stars, and I would give it 3.5 actually. It was better than Valley of Embers, but I liked The Emerald Blade more. Now that I read all three books published so far I can say this series is not really my cup of tea. I think I'll continue though, because I really want to know what's going to happen to T'alon Rane and Shadow. To be honest, I struggled with this book, and I can't decide if it's because I am in a reading [...]

    8. This is not a review on this book, but on all the books to this point and it is indeed not as much a review as my personal opinion up to this point.The first book engaged me quite well, interesting world, intriguing magic system. Characters that were . Worth reading about. I went through that book quickly and easily. By the second book I was ready to jump in head first and indeed proceeded to do just that, I started becoming increasingly distracted while reading and didn't know why. Until I real [...]

    9. Fantastic writingWow, what an experience. This story was a slow burn that really delivered. Although it took me a few chapters to get involved, the characters were very interesting and engaging. The plot turned out to be creative with a few helpful insights sprinkled throughout. The author, I felt, has really hit his creative stride in this book. The balance between word building and moving forward was perfect. To top it off, the last few chapters really delivered on the action. Looking forward [...]

    10. Thoughts: I loved this book. I always think the books in the Landkist Saga are amazing, but this one just blew me away. Each book keeps getting better and better. At first I was uncertain if I wouldn't like this book as much as the first two, because this one follows different characters. But I was wrong: this book was as good, if not better, than the first two. I loved how Steven Kelliher added the twists about the Faey's powers. Another thing that I loved about this book is the ending. The end [...]
