    1 thought on “The Rise of Aredor

    1. Have you read one of those books that makes you irresistibly happy What about a book where you fall in love with the characters so much that you miss them once you finish the novel Or maybe you ve found a book that makes you sit on the edge of your seat, laugh at every joke and humorous circumstance, and talk to the characters aloud as if they were real Well, The Rise of Aredor is that book for me I ve found myself returning again and again to this book just to visit with the characters.This swa [...]

    2. I couldn t help but give this one four stars Though the beginning was a bit rough, The Rise of Aredor by Claire Banschbach was ultimately a great read for me The story starts off by introducing a young boy named Corin, his father and mother, who are the king and queen and his sister, brother, and friends We get to know them in this simple, happy setting, until something quite unexpected happens From there, years pass, and we follow Corin as he braves incredible trials, engages in terrible battle [...]

    3. I didn t know what to expect from this book I was thinking that I would at least like it But no It was way better than that I loved it It was so exciting and enjoyable to read Prince Corin of Aredor lived a normal life until around twelve years of age Then he was stolen and sold as a slave His defiance brings him trouble and he struggles to survive But he will not be broken Though his country is conquered by another and his family is probably dead or captured, he will not give up hope He will su [...]

    4. The Rise of Aredor is a hugely ambitious tale that spans the years and leaves you with the hunger to learn about a tough stolen prince The amount of world building is perfectly balanced with humour and bucket loads of action The research is phenomenal, and there is no doubt the author could organise and assemble a fearsome pack of wise cracking warriors to lay siege to a castle if need be.The first half was intriguing, but it wasn t until the second part I connected with the characters, felt th [...]

    5. From the first time I heard about this book several months ago, when the author posted in a forum I frequent asking for reviews, I wanted to read this book Unfortunately, I was rather overwhelmed at the time, and had to turn down the offer However, last month she contacted me again, and since my plate was relatively emptier, and she s about to release the sequel, I agreed to it.I read it in one night, staying up well past midnight to do so, but because I was reading a PDF file and didn t want t [...]

    6. Plot 15 20Characters 20 20Creativity 18 20Writing 17 20Pace 8 10Ending 7 1085 100 B4.5 5 starsI found the plot slightly confusing, but the characters made up for it I LOVED the characters I will be looking forward to purchasing the second book

    7. WOW This was a great book The beginning was magnificent, after about halfway through it got a little less exciting, but it was still great So o like the first half the best I just LOVE Corin For people who love battles and wars this is a great book for you Everyone should read it I recommend it for ages, 12 13 up there is a bit of violence that might scare younger audiences.

    8. This book wow I don t even know where to start It moves from one action packed adventure to another, seemingly without a break In the first third, it seemed a bit jumpy , jumping 2 weeks here, 3 months there, 8 years here I love the young Corin, and his brother Darrin So realistic and mischievous, I could see my younger brothers in them All the characters had a decent amount of depth, but you never really got inside their heads and truly felt their emotions But, it was still well done in my opi [...]

    9. Claire M Banschbach got to an incredible start to her two book series in her first book The Rise of Aredor Since I had the chance to read the second book in the series, I was looking forward to reading this book when I received a free kindle copy as a part of a promotional event Of course, I wasn t disappointed One thing that really stood out to me was how easily the author could introduce a new or minor character and have them endeared to your heart and memory with a simple character descriptio [...]

    10. 3.5 starsThis book is divided into two segments or books Book One The Phoenix Guard, Book Two Hawk Uprising , basically defining two parts of Corin s or Hadmid s life I couldn t really discover a plot for the first part of the book it seemed like the story was being driven from event to event, told in an overview sort of way I didn t really get into the characters However, when it came to the second book, I thoroughly enjoyed it There was definitely a strong plot as Corin set to work at finding [...]

    11. The main storyline here is engaging enough a young prince called Corin is enslaved and sent far away from his homeland to the land of Calorin When he finally gains a kind master, Calorin invades his homeland His master discovers who Corin is and ponders my favourite line What do you do with a prince whose country you have just invaded What indeed The answer to this question changes Corin s life forever I could only give this two stars as the writing is really choppy lots of head hopping, showing [...]

    12. I loved this book because it got me reading again when I had stopped for a long time It is full of brotherhood, loyalty, and friendship with a little action and suspense It ends well and is easy to read It is a great book to ease you back into reading.

    13. 3.5 starsRecommended for Ages 10 to AdultRating PG for violence This is a rather difficult review to write I really wanted to love this book Claire likes a lot of the same books as me, like Narnia, Lord of the Rings, and Ilyon Chronicles, and even watches Doctor Who I thus had high hopes for The Rise of Aredor, but it never made it to my favorites list.Writing 3 5As other reviewers have said, the beginning of this book is rather choppy There was a good bit of head hopping, and it changed scenes [...]

    14. As a child, Corin was kidnapped while on a journey with his father His existence as the second son of the King of Aredor was kept secret while Corin became a slave to a cruel master Time passed, circumstances chagned, and Corin became a great warrior under a new name But his allegiance to his homeland and his family never left, and if given the chance, he would do anything to return to his family I really enjoyed The Rise of Aredor It was very much the story of a young man growing into an warrio [...]

    15. Age Appropriate For Ages 13 and up for violenceBest for Ages 13 and up Sometimes it is really hard to do reviews on debut novels, and this was one of those hard ones Debut novels often show promise, but leave lots of room for improvement This book shows a lot of promise, and I really look forward to seeing this author s books in the years to come.The first third of this book was very choppy and poorly written, but after about the first third, the author hit their stride and it began to improve B [...]

    16. This is a very competent and stylish fantasy story which will entertain readers of all ages from I d say fourteen or so and over The story of a Prince who is kidnapped and sold into slavery, it is the tale of one man s battles to regain his honour, as well as his fallen status Branded as a slave, name changed to heap further shame upon him, our hero must overcome seemingly insurmountable odds There are wars to fight along the way, friendships to forge in the most dire of circumstances and allegi [...]

    17. While this book starts a little slow, the actions builds and builds until the climatic ending It reminded me of a saga with the way it follows the main character for a decade of his life The time the book spends on the MC s life is well spent The friends he makes in his early life re appear in an interesting way that deepens the final conflict In the end, will loyalty to country triumph over the loyalty of friendship Is there a way to have both even when the friends are on opposite sides There w [...]

    18. Starting this book, and for the first 3 4 of it, I was reminded pleasantly of the first time I read The Horse His Boy by C.S Lewis It was my first experience with Narnia, and honestly I only picked it up because I was a horse crazed child and there was some mention of talking horses on the back cover.What I found within, was a world that had been living and thriving long before I ever drew breath Well developed, carefully organized, cultured and varied as the real world, and written in such an e [...]

    19. I loved getting to know and cheer for Corin in this book I found the first book first half to be very engaging, even if it was fast paced in the time frame as well as heart breaking The brotherhood is what won me over and just wanted to give these guys a group hug Loved them so much I also enjoyed the second book second half in seeing how Corin has grown into the man he is by the end.Though there was a lot fighting then I anticipated though I will definitely assure that this book is not gory , [...]

    20. Updated Review While the writing, character development, and plotting of Claire could use some work, this book is a rollicking adventure I return to it when I need a relaxing fantasy pick me up and something familiar and fun

    21. I can t remember where I heard about this book, but I purchased it in 2017 when it was on sale, and saved it for my 2018 reading challenge I started it early January, and was not disappointed It was a bit slow mostly talking about the first two or three chapters here , but then it jumped right into the action and never slowed back down Since slow beginnings never cause me to slow down or stop reading, I m not going to hold that against the book I m just stating it was a bitwell, not as exciting [...]

    22. A good first bookThe story was an interesting look at the challenges invoked by imprisonment and fractured loyalties The only point I would raise is the lack of really strong female counterpoints to the men There was Kara and I would have liked of this character because she had some intriguing quirks and personality Overall, the book carried a lot of action and fighting, with many injuries inflicted along the way There were strong relationships formed along the way and some of the banter was fu [...]

    23. What a wonderful story that drew me in and kept the pages turning Thank you Claire for bringing this to life I enjoyed it.

    24. 3.5 stars This was an exciting, action packed novel about a young prince Prince Corin that is kidnapped and sold into slavery, but grows up to be a powerful warrior who ends up fighting to protect his homeland Aredor from its enemies The book is split into two parts book 1 is about what happens before he gains his freedom, and book 2 is what happens after and the fight to save Aredor.I enjoyed it for the most part, especially book 2 I really liked the characters, and the banter between the soldi [...]

    25. Kay Where to start I rather enjoyed this The overall plot and story was really pretty cool.Corrin Hamid was an interesting main character At first he wasn t quite realistic and I didn t connect with him as much as I wanted to but then around 1 4 of the way through I started connecting with him And he was great after that And his Robin Hood stage just epic The plot was cool, and quite original and page turning The entire beginning felt a bit like a side track and it dragged out a bit Possibly one [...]

    26. This book was so good I don t even know how to review it.I love Corin He is brave, strong and makes friends easily He also experiences fear, uncertainty, self doubt and a desire for vengeance I really enjoyed his friendships both in the first half of the book and the second I just wish that we could have seen interaction of Corin s Calorin and Aredorian friends, because I didn t want to stop seeing Emeth, Ahmed, Ismail, Castimir, Nicar and Azrahil when the second half of the book started, but t [...]

    27. I ve received this book from.The Rise of Aredor is a good read I especially like the hero Corin view spoiler who is snatched from his family at a young age and taken to a foreign enemy land to be sold into slavery Once there, he is bought by an evil man that seems the make it his life s goal to break Corin s spirit After a few years of terrible abuse a Calorin lord named Rishdah negotiated and bought Corin to train him to be a warrior Corin flourishes under lord Rishdah s rule and soon climbs th [...]
