When legends come to life the world trembles from a single name. Ronin. Once-heroes from a different age, they wield elemental powers… wind, water, fire, stone, forest, sun, moon, flesh, and metal.
At the same time, a young man discovers his best friend with a sword in her stomach, and dark wings sprouting from her back. Guards rush onto the scene, accuse him of the act, and he is forced to flee. In a new world without his memories, Gray must find his way amid legends and darkness, as he wrestles with an elemental power inside himself.
A power all too similar to the infamous Ronin…
Matthew has crafted an epic fantasy with characters that the readers can relate to. This is one of those books where you pick it up and you get sucked into that ultimate time wrap and suddenly you realize you've not done anything in the last hours and hours and hours and the book is ending and you don't really want it to, but you CAN'T stop reading it!
The characters are great. It doesn't matter if they are good or evil, Matthew has done a good job at his characters.
I would've loved more detail though. I like to imagine the world that the characters are in- detail is essential to that. Otherwise, as a reader, we don't always see just what the author intended for us to see.
I'd like to see where this author goes with the series.
This book is good for readers from YA and up. If you like epic-style fantasy, grab a copy and get sucked in...
Matthew Wolf is the author of the Ronin Saga. Or maybe he's a Ronin. Either way, he's involved somehow. Aside from epic fantasy, he enjoys woodcrafting, outdoors, a bit of a health nut (Kale is good!), and trains in Kung Fu.
His childhood of traveling the world and studying Old English and Japanese influenced the schemes of the Saga, and the world of Daerval. He is a graduate from UCSB with a Literature degree with a specialization in Medieval Literature and Japanese.
