Book Review: SEVEN PRINCES


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.

My new short story The Call of Fate is available for preorder.  Here is a short excerpt:

Wogan Nance, more commonly referred to as Boot Chuck by his squad, looked out over the sprawling camp of the army. Tents were lined up orderly in rows for as far as the eye could see. Soldiers milled around cook fires, sharpened swords, and fletched arrows, mostly staying close to their own squad's compound of tents and supplies. He wondered how many soldiers were like himself, hiding their true nature to keep from being used up in short order. He wondered how many secret mages, or at least those with the ability to become mages lurked in midst of the throng of these men and women.

Mages were a hot commodity in the Imperial Army as it swept across the continent claiming new lands for its own. Magic turned the tide in battle for whichever side had the most numerous mages. While ability helped greatly, a large number of fledgling mages could overcome a seasoned magical user in due time, at the cos…
