Book Review: Relic of the Gods, by Philip C Quaintrell (2018).

Relic of the Gods is the final book in the series Echoes of Fate by Philip C Quaintrell. It has been a fabulous read and one that I have enjoyed very much.

There is so much to love about the final book, even though there is still a lot of sadness that comes to pass. The story of Asher is absolutely fantastic, and although the ending … Continue reading Book Review: Relic of the Gods, by Philip C Quaintrell (2018).

Book Review: Empire of Dirt, by Philip C Quaintrell (2017).

What a fantastic novel to follow the first in this action packed, heartbreaking adventurous fantasy series. Dragons have to be one of my favourite fantasy creatures, and Empire of Dirt is on no shortage of these. Nor in Elves, Mage, and of course evil Darkakin. The story remains fast paced and adventurous, and another novel difficult to put down. There are so many things happening all over the realm, with characters spread out throughout the lands. But of all of them I would have to say I like Gideon the best. He is a young Mage that isnโ€™t entirely sure … Continue reading Book Review: Empire of Dirt, by Philip C Quaintrell (2017).

Book Review: Rise of the Ranger, by Philip C Quaintrell (2017).
