    I really enjoyed this book once I started to understand who the people were etc I would have given Forebodings a 5 star rating but I had a hard time getting into it and it was a slow start That is just my personal opinion and others may have had no trouble getting going with the book since I have a lot of distractions an 8 yr old 2 dogs 3 cats and a husband I do look forward to books in this series

    What I likedThe world had a lot of potential I'm a sucker for a fantasy world that is clearly the remnants of a high technology SF epic gone wrong I'm surprised however that the two ecosystems imported and native work so well together Either these people are heavily modified to fit their environment or whoever sent these colonists are outstandingly lucky to find a planet that has evolved as far as a globe spanning sapient species and still has life forms that can coexist to the point of being edible to and able to eat humans Also reserving judgment so far on the two sun thing It's a good plot driver in a lot of ways and I'm sure we've found exoplanets that look to be in a good band in a twin star system but I feel like it would really mess with Terran plants and animalsThe politics are pretty well done I'm not sure I buy that the king is so amazeballs that he can do all the things he does politically without using his magic to screw with peoples' minds though Also it's weird that all the religious orders are either crazy or far away from the capital Suggestive that the reasonable priests know something everybody else doesn't I liked the main conflict It has a lot of potentialSome faint praiseFor an indy author I bought a book from at a convention this was really well done A few mistakes but it seems like both he and his editor are getting off the groundImprovement opportunitiesI don't get why the Serpent was messing around rather than going straight for the capital I'm sure there's a reason there were hints it was eating people to get stronger? but I didn't catch itDid the Luxori not leave any records? They're all dead but the king is so amazingly amazing that he can do AoE fireballs without seeming to expend effort and is using the Bind to help a Sister without her noticing He seems remarkably well trained for someone who must have figured it out for himselfReuest that the endnotes either be at the end of the book or be footnotes on the page referenced Having them at the end of a chapter feels like the worst of both worlds I'm actually 100% in favor of endnotes rather than a glossary because it makes it easier to look things up based on when they were read but having them at the end of a chapter means having to flip to the end of the chapter which isn't as easy as the end of the bookIt was a bit of a rough start Between the worldbuilding the look how great these princes are and the prologue which takes place for some reason about 75% of the way through the story in the main book it took a bit of waiting for things to settle down and the story to get going at a steady speed At that point however the pacing was even and measured moving at a speed which kept everything flowing well

    Disclaimer I live a few houses away from the Author and got a flyer in my Mailbox to attend a reading at a local book store I PURCHASED the book and talked to him about another self published writer that he was already familiar with I like the Author and have known him and his Children for many years I was predispositioned to like this book it was really to my taste in Fantasy I grew up reading Fantasy and hard Science Fiction with some Pulp Fantasy several world building fantasy novels playing many Role Playing GamesThe book starts off introducing a character Toras and a situation then about a third of the way through the book you find out why he was in the situation It took a look time to get back to Toras And I really wanted this to be about his journey because that was when the writing was at a good pace There are so many characters but few storylines and only a few character stood out The other storyline of Aithen was long and drawn out if there was a better balance of the 2 brothers stories So the main focus was on Aithen for three fourths of the timeI found the first 3rd of the book disjointed and loaded with information There is a lot of use of notes at the end of the chapter which interrupted the flow of reading A better use may have been a sentence or paragraph explanation within the chapter If I stopped mid chapter and returned later this reference was not helpful at the end of the chapter From time to time it felt like a new story element was thrown in just to shake things up It caused me to think why this was thrown in Also some of the character names just brought to mind other characters from other stories and it made hard for me to get by thatI had to force myself to get through the first half The second half was much better once the details and the narrative pace changed to telling the story as opposed to creating the world What I did like was the Creatures Toras The way magic was used for the most part I liked the interactions when the narrative focused on the Royals and some of the political stuff What I did not like would be things including spoilers that I will not get intoAs far as World building this is a good piece the story line was OK but I found the end to be a bit off not uite the cliffhanger or uplifting to the story for the readerHonestly I do not think I would read the second one as the ending of this book was really a let downI do urge you to give it a try there were several things that I really liked

    Wowjust wow I mean how can someone create such far flung epic world The novel is written in beautifully intelligent way and you get the idea from the very first lines The author knows how to play with wordsThe book opens up with the struggle of a prince searching for his father The King The plot broadens with the progress There are all sorts of new speciescreatures and places In this high fantasy world There is an ancient creature which is supposed to be dead but it returns and is symbol of danger and darknessWill the Princessons be able to bring back The Kingfather?Will the ancient creature the serpent succeed in his dark intentions?Will the Sons of great King be able to defend their loved ones ?What's to come of this destructive beginning?To what length the Sons of a King have to go to win this war against a lagendary beast or maybe even something powerful?Are you ready to be engulfed by this diverse and broad mythical world?I don't want to give details because it will spoil you and this book does not deserve even a minor spoilerThe story is complicated at start and it contains 150 characters but once you get into the book completely and manage to merge all the pieces together the adventure starts You go on a ride with endless joyThere are many never read before ritualspowers species and places that keep you hooked including things like nibblers hall of light and bind fusion and applaudsThe world building is very strong and powerful and is packed with scary surprising adventurous elementsI definitely loved the book and cant wait for the 2nd installment of the seriesI would give this book 4 stars🌟🌟🌟🌟 I am deducting one star because the editor had not done its job properlyI would trade my life in return to make someone read this book Its worth a shot It will keep you at the edge of your seat and will make you want

    I loved this book Sure it took me a while I started reading it had to stop and then when I picked it up again I had to start over because a couple months had passed but once I got back into it I couldn't put it down I look forward to reading of the series

    Take Away Forbodings is an epic fantasy story that attempts to combine all the necessary ingredients for an excellent story While had some very interesting elements and had the potential to be truly great it was unable to bring these together in a way that truly achieved this end For the author's first book this is really good meaning that if the author sticks with writing he could easily become one of the greats 3 starsStatsPlot The plot simply speaking does not pull you into the story In many cases it seemed to be sacrificed for the sake of worldbuilding which led to the climax of the book being underwhelming 2 starsCharacters The characters were engaging and often enjoyable Overall they were well written and while lacking in some complexity this will likely improve in future books 3 starsStorytelling – The author's style is slow paced broad stroked and can sometimes seem scattered 3 starsWorld Building – This world is massive uniue vibrant and utterly fascinating It seems that a page doesn't turn without discovering of this remarkable place 45 starsMagic – The magic system in this book is interesting and complex I did find it frustrating that how the magic works and what it can do was still unclear after finishing the book however I realize that this may be done for a purpose I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased reviewMorality rating Some violence

    The Chronicles of K’Tara is an amazing example of world building at its best Vivid descriptions three dimensional characters and a engaging plot make this an outstanding tale I listened to the audiobook version and the narrator did an excellent job of differentiating the hundreds of characters DiPaolo has introduced us to Can’t wait for the next installment

    4 stars I really enjoyed this book It was a longer book then I'm used to but the characters and the story kept my interest peaked The author wrote it very well easy to read the characters and their importance were fleshed out and told very well I will definitely keep my eye out for book 2 since book 1 leads you up to a very important part of the story that I want to see the outcomeI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
