I love fantasy books, so this series seems right up my alley. I like the fact that the plotline develops in surprising ways as each new character is introduced. How will a refugee in the land of Voulhire change the fate of the kingdom? I'll have to read and find out. Thanks for a detailed review!

I love sci-fi stories and the fact that this one contains magic and the lot would be intriguing though the part about inheritance and government may be a little too boring for me but nevertheless I would love to check out the book. Thanks

:techie-studyingbrown: Going through the book gives better insight into what the writers creative mindset is and yes such a bewildering kingdom the young man finds himself engaging into gives an assurance that he surely will have to fight his way through the kingdoms berserkers.

As said that greatness doesn't come into reality while in your comfort zone and he has just began the progress of becoming Voulhire savior

A great book there 🙌🏾

I also liked that aspect of the author's inclusion of the fantasy world's map. I'm also a fan of Matthew Tysz's writings. Thank you for this wonderful review!

This one sounds like a fascinating fantasy tale with a wonderful world to explore in this and subsequent books. When I tried to purchase this book I discovered I already had it on my kindle, so it has now been bumped up near the top of my 'to-read' list. Thank you for your wonderfully detailed review :)

I really liked the review. It is one of those pieces that gets you to visualize the story in a taste that you like. Moreover, since the introduction of the mentioning of sexual and religious content in a book, this is the first review I have read that has done this beautifully in my opinion. Thumbs up!

I can't resist a complex plot that keeps me guessing. I'm a huge fan of fantasy and science fiction anyway, but if something can actually catch me by surprise in terms of plot and character development in a good way (rather than a forced or poorly executed twist), then it's all the better. Thank you for the helpful review.

Maps in fantasy world always help me visualize the location and distances between the places mentioned in the book. The plot seemed complex and I'd like to know more about this series.

You've written quite a detailed review. Good job! I haven't read much in the fantasy genre. This book could be a good addition.

I had the privilege to read and review this amazing book. In my opinion, this is a must read for fantasy genre fans. The author has done a real good job at establishing the premise for further instalments of the series. And like you've mentioned, it has the potential to keep the readers hooked till the end. Thank you for the detailed review.

As they say, good stories come with maps. This plot seems to be interesting. I liked that you stated it is in line with Game of Thrones as it helped me further in my decision to read this. Thanks for the review!

Wow! You're review has depth and gave me an insight into what the book is really about. I am a fan of fantasy and I will definitely read 'We are Voulhire'.
But the path I’ve chosen has always been the right one, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. :)

I like a good sci-fi read and the constant fight for power makes it unique. Its comparison with Game of Thrones makes it relatable. Thanks for the exciting review.
