    1 thought on “Shadows & Starstone

    1. Rating 2 5This novella was not what I was hoping for For some reason I could not relate to any of the characters, especially since I felt like the author was trying really hard to make us sympathise with them Also, even though there was a lot of action, this being a novella featuring four immortal warriors on a quest, I felt bored during the fight scenes I did get a bit curious though by the ending, but I don t know if it s worth picking the next novella I will be giving the author s other serie [...]

    2. 4.5 Cranky Stars I read this book for The Book Curmudgeons and give it 4 1 2 stars.I loved this young adult novella and prequel to The Unknown Sun It helps establish the character s background Each character has a gift or talent from the Gods All four ride horses and seem to be single minded in their resolve to complete their mission It reminded me of the Dungeons and Dragons games I played as a kid We almost always were victorious at our quests because we had a healer and wizard and burly warri [...]

    3. In a world under siege from a race known as the Dro Aconi, four gods gathered long ago, formed an alliance, creating immortal protectors of the world in time of strife Feeling their work was complete and the world would be safe because of their immortal warriors, each with their own strengths, the gods disappeared, and the world was let on its own How do conquering demons take over other peoples By use of their power and might, but can they be stopped this time The goal is to steal all of the st [...]

    4. The Immortals, Part One Shadows and Starstone is a novella by Cheryl S Mackey It is part of the Fate Series and it is a prequel of sorts to her full length novel, The Unknown Sun This story takes place in a world where evil Dro Aconi are fighting for dominance and control Four heroes must work together to protect a small village from being destroyed by the Dro Aconi These heroes are Immortals, souls chosen by The Four to become immortal and stand as protectors of all of the races.I enjoyed this [...]

    5. I had read The Unknown Sun quite awhile ago, and was very excited to see this new release from this author My excitement grew when I discovered that the events in this book take place in the same world as the other book, though some time in the past.I m going to do this review in reverse for my own reasons, but to start there were a few misses in my eyes The POV follows the four main characters and switches frequently throughout This makes the battle scenes, in particular, hard to follow when it [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this novella It was fast paced and had great world building It drew me in quickly and kept my interest throughout.We follow four Immortals warriors with the power of reincarnation that were chosen by The Four, who are missing gods as they try to protect an innocent village and its mine from the threat of demons and Death Each of the four has a unique power and it was interesting to see how they used their powers to work together and defeat the demons.I also liked the glimpses of [...]

    7. I think this was a good book I loved that each Immortal had a different power I enjoyed finding out and learning about the characters and the powers This book kept me interested and wanting to read I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

    9.

    10. As the blurb states the immortals are created by the gods known as The Four These immortals are sent on a quest to protect the world of Ein Aral from evil known as Dro Aconi Task protecting a village full of innocent people which just happens to have a powerful resource that could be used by demons, potentially bringing about the end of the world as we know it Although the book was short I think the author packed a lot in, in terms of content For example each of the four has a unique power which [...]

    11. I was gifted a copy of this story by the author in exchange for an honest review Immortals have been created by the gods known as The Four to protect the world of Ein Aral from evil known as Dro Aconi Four such Immortals are sent on a quest to stop the Dro Aconi from acquiring Starstone from an unprotected village Starstone is a powerful resource the Dro Aconi need to break their way fully into Ein Aral, as currently they are only unformed shadows.The Immortal Emaranthe holds power over fire Des [...]

    12. I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.To start off a new fantasy world within a novella is a very brave thing to do So often, you need an epic novel due to the amount of world building that you need to do Somehow, Cheryl Mackey has managed to build a world, complete with history, within a very short space that is not lacking in any way Our four heroes battle against evil and their memories You get glimpses of their pasts which will intrigue you and leave you [...]

    13. This book is a tie in with The Unknown Sun, answering some questions the precious book left us with and providing insight into the mysterious Four we read about I liked this much better than the other, believe it or not When it comes to epic fantasy worlds like what Mackey created, the inside workings of its characters and leaders always intrigues me the most, like The Simarillion by Tolkien.This story takes you inside Skyfall, inside the minds and hearts of its leaders It s written just as bea [...]

    14. Four Immortals are out to protect a village and their mining Each immortal has a special power and they work together fluidly to save those that need their help They all have some memory of their past when they were mortal and that is woven into the story It helps you learn the characters and follow along with how they became immortal This book is building up to the next in the series I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    15. Mixed feelingsThere s lots of action and precious little explanation and not much character development in this novella I would have preferred that the episodes be combined into one complete book The imagery is well done There s some mixing of verb tenses, but I didn t catch any obvious misspellings This is a good story that would be better off not split into small episodes.

    16. I found the premise of this book interesting It started off slow but soon picked up some pace I was confused at one part as to what was going on but figured it out a bit further into it The characters are interesting and I found myself wondering where their journey would take them I found plenty of action mixed in which helped with the pace I think I would like to see what happens on the next adventure in book 2 Overall it was a good read with a few twists and lots of adventure.

    17. Fast paced and well written taleA blend of medieval sword and sorcery meets zombie apocalypse with a hint of sci fi Great action scenes and dialog It is a small glimpse into a much larger tale.
