Summary

Spring has arrived, and open war with it. Mostly healed from his wound, Alexander departs the Dragon Isle only to be set upon by enemies from all sides. Outnumbered, desperate, and running for his life, he’s shipwrecked in enemy territory then sold into slavery in the fabled city of Mithel Dour. Ancient and mysterious, it’s said that the city was discovered rather than built. Within, Alexander finds a secret so old and so powerful that it could turn the tide of war…and possibly doom Isabel to the netherworld in the process.

Good but not great

Worth a listen but a bit naive as if written for children. The author must have had a very privileged and sheltered life to explain his belief that this is the worst humans can think of.

Very good although not as good as previous books

There are parts where I really enjoyed the book but there are some others that it gets a little heavy to continue. Overall very good.

Horrible Right-wing Propagander

Any additional comments?

At first this was just a badly written fantasy series with cliche characters and plot, it graduates to truly horrific when it starts going off on these hyper right wing, anti trade union tangents, I stopped listening when one of the main characters kills a bunch of unionized ship builders for striking for better pay, I wish I were kidding.

Fun and Unique World of ...Difficult Love Story...

This review is more about the entire Sovereign of The Seven Isles series and not just Linkershim. ***Statements Which Could Be Construed As Spoilers***

Overall I really have enjoyed this series by David A. Wells. The story has a great cast as well as an intriguing system of magic that is as varied and unique as the personalities of each character.

The storyline has been fun and enjoyable to read with only a few kinks. Alexander is a great leading character who grows in his charge and complexity with each novel. You can see that his growth as a character is allowing him to become the powerful and cunning hero that the uber sensational villain requires of him. But this growth is spread out and well timed. The challenges he faces drag at times and in only a couple of instances end too abruptly. But all things considered this has been a great read thus far.

However, I am a bit of a romantic and this author really knows how to layer on the heartbreaking relationship trials. I had to take an intermission between books because I did not like the direction the love story was headed in. It was a sappy and endearing relationship where it was obvious they were completely devoted to each other. It reminded me a lot of those high school couples that are always hanging on and around each other because they refuse to miss a minute of life without the other. A little annoying to friends and others but it is truly a fun and exciting fantasy world to be a part of. How could you break that up!!!

After getting over it and pressing on I have to admit that Wells did not slaughter the beauty of the initial love story as I thought he was going to. I still do not care for the exact turn of events in this part of the story, but it is bearable and I must admit that it granted more depth to my animosity for Prince Phane and brought on an attentive anxiety to move through the story to arrive at the resolution. But alas, hang in there chaps because it is going to be a long ride toward this resolution as this conflict will endure through the final addition to this story in Reishi Adept which is set to come out on Audible January 9, 2015.

But I am looking forward to it!!!

high appreciation for sovereign of the Seven Isles

good vs evil. innocence thrust into unwanted power. an epic journey.
A very familiar theme and yet David Wells has recreated it. he has woven a deep, but fun and comprehensible storyline with rich characters the reader is willingly forced into developing relationships with. there are classic foes and highly imaginative, refreshing and newly created ones. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and definitely recommend it.

Saddened

There is 1 book left for me and I'm saddened that there is only 1 left. When I came across this series it was just supposed to be a filler in between new novel releases. Liked it so much I bought and listened to all the books but the last 1! Highly recommend if you enjoy sword and sorcery. Filled with different kinds of magic with interesting introductions into the story. I was not disappointed, I don't believe you will be either if you decide to purchase!! PBJT!
