    One thought on “The Sons of Thestian”

    1. THIS BOOK IS IN THE TOP THREE BOOKS I HAVE READ ALL YEARThe Sons of Thestian has blown me away completely This epic fantasy book is completely stunning and one of my favourites to date

    2. Sometimes when you experience something wonderful, everything else loses its shine.Actual rating 2.5Get ready for a rant, folks, because I am so done with this book.First of all, that extra 0.5 rating is because of the ending, which was probably the best part of the book The 2 stars is because it was far from being a bad book I mean, scroll down the first few reviews of it, they re mostly 5 stars so it must be doing something right.There were various things that annoyed me about this book The wr [...]

    3. CURRENTLY FREE ON KINDLE TO CELEBRATE ITS ANNIVERSARY IF YOU RE LOOKING FOR EPIC FANTASY WITH HUMOUR AND UNUSUAL CHARACTERS AND DIVERSITY, THEN THIS SERIES IS FOR YOU AMENDED to show review of Second Edition4.5 starsThis is epic fantasy with a difference Somehow the author has managed to get the feel of George R R Martin or Tolkien or Terry Goodkind, but the plot and sub plots feed each other rather than being episodes set as way stations on the way to an inevitable destination At 500 odd pages [...]

    4. I am obviously biased, but my rating is based on two things 1 My personal enjoyment of the story, which was obviously tremendous because I wrote, and then rewrote, and then rewrote it several times, and you can only do that when you re dedicated to the work The characters have become old friends, and than anything, the prospect of sharing them with others is delightful 2 I m writing this review on behalf of my mother, who died a few months before it was published I owe the entire book to her Sh [...]

    5. Addition for the second edition I knew what was coming, I ve read this book then once And still, I get swept up in this world, I laugh at the same parts, I cry at the same parts, me emotions are assaulted and I welcome it every single time I read this book Original review In the short version This book is AMAZING and i cant wait to see what happens next There is magic and battles and family and friends and you never get a break for long from some new horrible thing our heros need to over come T [...]

    6. 4.5 starsBefore I get started, I want to thank M.E Vaughan who gave me this e book in exchange for an honest review So, thank you It was a pleasure, truly rubs hands together Now, let s get started I was approached by Vaughan during an epic reading slump and to be honest, I was a little nervous that a high fantasy novel would make it worse or that I would feel bogged down by learning a new world However, this book was thrilling and witty and full of twists If school hadn t taken up so much of my [...]

    7. In the same way that a musician absorbs and reconfigures the influences of other players and bands, The Sons of Thestian synthesizes a wide array of influences from Medieval Arthurian legend and Celtic folklore to recent classics of the fantasy genre such as The Lord of the Rings and the Game of Thrones and Harry Potter series As the first novel in Vaughan s Harmatia Cycle, this novel begins a saga that has the same degree of scope and resonance as so many that have come before it, but Vaughan [...]

    8. 3.5 although I loved this book a lot, there were a few minor things that leave it with a lower rating in my mind But, since I loved the story so much, I gave it 4 stars officially anyways SIGNAL BOOST I m quite emotional right now so let s see if I can write a coherent enough review that will intrigue and hopefully encourage you guys to pick this book up.First, I want to acknowledge the lower rating This is not due to lack of plot or character development, but merely due to the pacing and the wr [...]

    9. Even though I ve read thousands and I am NOT exaggerating books, I can sincerly say that The Sons of Thestian is definitely my favourite It is hard to pinpoint one exact characteritic that makes it so exceptional The thing is that the beautiful world, complex characters and swift action, all together create a special atmosphere of the book, and reading feels like listening to an entrancing story next to a fire on a warm summer night The characters have their own, very special personalities, thei [...]

    10. I have not been drawn into a book as deeply as I was with The Sons of Thestian for a rather long time, I have also not been as emotionally attached to characters and felt so happy or sad for with them as I have been while reading it Why did you make them all so likeable I can promise that this book will leave you laughing for there are many occasions where you cannot help but laugh, in my case uncontrollably and for longer than could be seen as normal , crying for I will not lie I did, than onc [...]

    11. I loved this book I am a fan of fantasy, fairies and magic, so this book fit perfectly I also love to read books by relatively unknown authors as there are some amazing gems out there I was entranced by each of the characters, all their good and bad, they developed at a decent pace but just enough to let you know who they were with out belabouring the point I also love the ambiguity and fluid nature of the characters sexuality, this is written well and feels natural I have started the second boo [...]

    12. The Sons of Thestian is a superbly original fantasy adventure I was immediately drawn in to the lives of the main characters and the world they inhabit Rufus and Jionathan were engaging and pleasingly different leads, while the fearsome Fae is far than your average warrior maiden Further, from the outset the pace rattles along and I found the book genuinely hard to put down The stakes get ever higher and it isn t long before the members of the little band are forced to make unenviable decisions [...]

    13. This book has DESTROYED me I love the characters I love the plot The world building was phenomenal I literally shed tears at the end I just loved so many thing about this book The ending made me feel SO MANY THINGS Also, I empathized with nearly all the characters, even the ones I really disliked There were some typos and a few errors here and there but were easily looked past in my opinion The one thing I was kind of disappointed about was the lack of explicit representation, when I heard this [...]

    14. Okere are a lot of reviews for this book and I only saw one two star one against so being a contrary sort I read that I have read Sons of Thestian and I agree with the positive quotes here, however I understood the two star rating points but not the rating itself.So my two pennies worth I have read a LOT of Fantasy and I don t have a degree so I guess this should be taken for what it is, the meanderings of a forty something man who enjoyed a book and was even impressed by the back story.The boo [...]

    15. Simply an excellent fantasy novel A book of compelling incidents and fascinating characters M.E Vaughan s prose is not only appropriate and effective but it s also musical, with harmonious blends of the pleasing, the riveting, the poignant and even the horrific Being a little over five hundred pages, this book requires of a commitment from the reader, but it s than well worth the time devoted to it I m very much looking forward to work from this very talented author Highly recommended.

    16. A book that reminds us the dangers of forgetting to live in the present Sons of Thestian is an engaging book with sympathetic characters that challenge our preconceptions of them as we read.

    17. There are two things which I commend this book highly for.First, its ability to utilise multiple points of view I.E More than the principal two characters in a way that is not only easy for the reader to follow, but one which is used to great effect Each character feels and sees the world differently from the cynical Rufus Merle, to the jaded eyes of Arlen Zachary, to the brave and reckless loyalty of Fae.Instead of falling into the trap of having too many points of view and not enough character [...]

    18. First of all, I want to thank M.E Vaughan for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review So without further ado, let s see if I can gather my thoughts well enough to form a coherent review Before reading The Sons of Thestian, I was going through a major reading slump However, this book took me right out of it and I eventually found it nearly impossible to put down If I wasn t being forced to be a human and study for midterms, I probably would have been able to f [...]

    19. I have had the privilege of hearing the first chapter read by the author, and I ve been hooked ever since It has been on my to read list since forever and I totally regret not reading it sooner The book is wonderfully fantasy, and throws away the norm of dragons, elves and dwarves and focuses on legendary creatures you may have not heard of I certainly hadn t It was a breath of fresh air to read something new and exciting with the creatures, not knowing what they were capable of Give the book br [...]

    20. 5 starsThis book left me breathless It was a long book and at times I worried that there would be long lulls where my attention would wane but it didn t The book leapt from one great action scene to the next startling revelation I loved how the story came together in full circle especially given the ambiguous beginning The characters were complex and the bad had their own reasons for their actions I had my own suspicions regarding the ending seeing as I went to read the summary of the second boo [...]

FOR MORE HONEST REVIEWS, CHECK OUT cabookle.tumblrI received a galley of this book from author M.E Vaughan in exchange for my honest review The following was my HONEST opinion as I was in no way obligated to give a positive review Thank you, mevaughan Summary Prince Jionathan is plagued by nightmares that cause him to want to run away from his home in Harmatia at the absolute worst time His father, the King, is on his deathbed while his tyrannical wife, Queen Reine, has taken over and implemente [...]

    22. Gahh I s2g Jionat is the death of me, he took my heart and then smashed it Wonderfully written, all the characters have been elaborated on and they grow over the course of the book I feel like this book perfectly gets across the motion of there are no bad men, only bad deeds Zachary as well has become a favourite, even if he seems very cold and evil at first.Edit I also forgot to mention how much I, as a bi person, love how Rufus affections to people of different genders is treated It s seen as [...]

    23. Really enjoyed both of books of the series so far And after reading the author s response to a question, I am even impressed Keep fighting, working and writing Am excited to spend time in your world but happy to wait until the time is right.It is actually one of those stories where I don t want to say anything about the book since I found it a treat to discover each little bit about the characters, to take another step in each adventure and to shed a tear and laugh with each bit of self discov [...]

    24. It took me a while to get into it, but the characters were well rounded and likeable, I liked the tipbits of information dotted throughout, lots of strong female characters was welcome, LOVED the consent, really got some jollies from these character Glad I took my time reading it as I don t have to wait for the next installment

    25. The ending is as heartbreaking the second time around as it was when I first read it Tears have been shed by me and Rufus both, look at us bonding , and revenge will be had by Rufus, mostly.

    26. This was such a surprise For a small publisher this is one hell of a book, had from the first page to the last Devoured it in one sitting, and am rushing to get the sequel

    27. Runs out like a half wit hero, he ranted Throws himself onto the blade of danger, and then sets an army on himself Oh yes, that s Jionat Prince of impulse, brain the size a walnut By far my favorite thing about The Sons of Thestian is the bond between Rufus and Jionathan, a Magi apprentice and the crown prince of Harmatia It is through them that we view the events of the book, with an occasional glimpse from Zachary s Rufus s brother apprentice and a member of the feared Night Patrol perspective [...]

    28. 4.5 starsThis book was very exciting for me as it symbolises the first time I have been approached by an author, so that alone was very exciting, then I heard what the story was about and I SO wanted to read it So I did.There is so much good stuff to talk about in this book, from the characters to the storyline I LOOOVEEEE Rufus, he s my baby and no one else can have him Okay well I might relent, but I really do love him, he s so well written and he s magical what s not to love I also have a rep [...]

    29. I received an e copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This book took me a while to finish, but this was at no fault of the author Because of this, I had to restart it a couple of times The final time, I was able to properly dedicate myself to this novel and boy, am I glad that I did This book sticks to true high fantasy trend, developing a large cast of characters and using a multiple pov system What I enjoyed was how the author managed to develop and introduce these characters with [...]
