Weapons and Wielders Book 1 by Andrew Rowe
Published on: February 8, 2019
This fantasy novel is a light-hearted read, so if you are a fan of fantasy and have just read a chain of several books that contain plots related to the prophesying of an end of the world collapse, then this book may just be for you as a change of pace type book. As a light-hearted read and there are a lot of jokes and quips within it to give you a feel-good feeling when you close the book each night.
I will admit that 1st person narrative is not the one I like the best. For me it takes a little while to get used to it before I settle in to the style. As a result, the time it takes to settle in means it takes longer to become engaged and immersed in the story. This is what happened to me. While I was attempting to adapt to the 1st person view, there were also a lot of jokes and references to other people or situations that I didn’t quite understand or had to gloss over in hopes that the book would later bring out more understanding of the people/places being referenced. I also felt that sometimes there were too many jokey-moments. In the end, the book fell just a little because of these things.
I received the book in a GoodReads giveaway and this is my honest opinion.
