SEVEN PRINCES, by John R. Fultz, was, in many ways, a traditional fantasy story in every sense of the phrase. I often felt like I knew what was going to happen in many of the key points. However, don’t let that deter you from purchasing the book. I thought it was a very entertaining read. I enjoyed the emotions of the main characters, the fight scenes, and much of the back story and histories of the people of this world. I also thought that the idea of ancient people with unimaginable powers would create a nexus of power that couldn't be stopped by any means. I was wrong, and I’m glad that I was wrong. Fultz worked this aspect of magic into the story in a way that made it possible for the plot to continue along a logical path without using Deus Ex Machina to get himself out of jam.
I gave this story a 3 star rating. I felt that I really wasn't surprised by the way the story progressed. I did enjoy the story though. I enjoyed the characters and the dichotomy they often showed in their power and personalities. I would definitely recommend that lovers of epic fantasy pick up SEVEN PRINCES and give it a shot.
