How many books can you say do this?

An excerpt from an email received by my now Editor, Elaine Denning.

I’ve just finished reading Destiny of the Wulf and thought you might like my feedback!

As you can probably imagine (due to my choice of career), I’ve been an avid reader for all of my life, often devouring books at a rate of four or five per week. As such, I’ve read a lot of books from every imaginable genre, bar one. I’ve tried many times to read fantasy and for some reason it has never managed to hold my interest. I didn’t even get past the third chapter of Harry Potter, and as much as I’ve tried to tackle it, Lord of the Rings is still unread on my bookcase.

I wanted to let you know that information so you’d understand the importance of what I’m about to say. I not only finished your book in three sittings but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Seriously, I was gripped and couldn’t put it down, and that absolutely astounds me.  I really believe you’ve done something extraordinary: you’ve written something that I believe is capable of opening up this genre to the masses. As I’m obviously not a die-hard fantasy fan, I have no idea how it compares. But the mere fact that I willingly and excitingly kept reading speaks volumes to me, so thank you for my first, full fantasy experience.

I’m not entirely sure how you managed to do it, and I’ve been pondering it for a while now, but I think it’s the ease in which I was drawn into your fantasy world. Every scene just seemed so natural and I didn’t even question how or why something weird or strange was happening. You created a world I believed in, fantastic, multi-layered characters, a great plot and enough twists and turns to keep me turning the pages.

As a child, my brother tried so many times to get me interested in Doctor Who and Star Trek, to no avail. I believed fantasy worlds were stupid and could never see beyond that to the stories that lay within. “It doesn’t matter where the story is set,” he’d say to me, “just look a bit deeper and find the reality within.” I’d shoo him away, never giving him the benefit of the doubt. I think I owe him an apology because  if you weren’t paying me to edit Underworld, I’d be buying it to see what happens next.

Well, that’s my completely unexpected review as a reader.

Other than that, seriously Harrison, it’s a fantastic read. Well done! I really can’t wait to edit the rest of Underworld – I’m desperate to find out what happens!

Elaine.

It is your destiny to read this book!

A review by David J. Blackie (Submitted to Amazon and awaiting approval).

Destiny of The Wulf by Harrison Davies.

5 out of 5 stars.

In the top three of my favourite books of all time. Next to Stephen King and Terry Pratchett.

You know the feeling when you’ve just completed a journey of epic proportions, all taking place through the pages of a novel.. And you’re now just lost, left with a hole you must now attempt to fill with some TV show, video game or other medium? (Probably another book if you’re reading this.) Totally how I’m feeling as I sit here typing up this review.

I stumbled upon ‘Destiny of the Wulf’ through a friend, who sparked my curiosity after presenting me the books blurb, the first section which goes as follows:
“Death desires to rule as king of the gods, and is poised to ignite a war in the heavens that would consume all life on the distant world of Er’ath.”

Already, we’re diving out of the generic and into something that feels new and exciting. I can assure you, the book itself surely achieves this with perfect delivery and a gripping narrative throughout. The story delves straight into the action from the off, presenting us with a world of rich lore and multiple factions and regions upon the Realm of Rosthagaar. (Containing your classic Elven / Dwarf / Orc varieties, all with their little twists presented as the story develops.)

Coinin and Marrok, our main characters and brothers by blood are placed upon a road to destiny which was set for them long before their birth, joining the Brotherhood of the Wulf, who’s influence upon the land helps sway the tides and fate of the trials and tribulations to come. Though the concept of a ‘great destiny’ may seem old and dragged out, ‘Destiny of the Wulf’ adds a fresh twist and feel to the situation, with the characters justifiably objecting to this responsibility of epic proportions that’s been thrust upon them. This feels only natural, whereas in many other stories I’ve read throughout the years (not just in books, but across far too many examples of video games and movies), the ‘great one’ always seems to accept this unknown destiny with little to no questioning. Unless your character’s life contains such little meaning, or they’re on the precarious edge of a sociopath, it just doesn’t feel natural and comes across as just lazy and generic. (None of that here though!)

We’re also presented with a colourful cast of various different characters, all with vivid personalities who can be easily related too and most of the time you end up rooting for. The rich character building allows for the unique relationships between these characters to flourish, and will leave you reading into things for hours after you’ve put the book down. (When you do. ;D) The ‘Madorine’ for me were particularly interesting, these being presented as the Orc like race for the world, though I won’t go into too much detail as to spoil things.

One particular thing I love about this book is the way in which magic is used. (Something I hope to see followed through in the rest of the series.) Instead of your classic fireball / lightning, destruction type spells (which are included, but not to an overly excessive amount), the connection to Er’ath in which the caster must have I find fantastic. One brilliant detail (minor spoilers for the lore) is how teleportation (Destinaté) spells are used within the world, and how casters must remove their shoes so they make a direct connection to nature as to be able to visualize and port to their locations successfully. This is merely one example of some of the unique ways in which magic is used, and though there’s plenty of examples shown here within book 1 (from mind swaps / disintegration and more), I can only hope and imagine we will get more examples as the trilogy progresses.

The world building is great and detailed, giving off a slight ‘Skyrim’ feel with the sister planets, Rol’as and Tal, dominating the skyline of Er’ath. Across the realm itself we’re presented with a variety of locations, from the volcanic wastes of Madorine, to the quaint market stalls and farming lands of Arrom or the rich, vibrant junglescape of Sanctuary. (A particular scene within Chapter 2 which describes our young brothers journey to the Sanctuary is brilliant, and keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more!)

In summary, once I’ve finished double checking over this review, I shall be heading straight on over to Harrison’s store and ordering myself a copy of Underworld, the second book in this epic tale.

If you’re partial to a good fantasy adventure, then this is a fantastic book that you absolutely must read! With twists and turns throughout the story, relatable, likeable characters and an overall rich narrative, with an already well established lore and an opportunity for many more stories to span from it, I can only hope that ‘The Aduramis Chronicles’ receives the recognition it deserves and spans into something even more fantastic than it already is. (Yes, I realize I’ve only read the first book, but I’m rather confident it’ll continue to impress!)

I need a new bath plug!

‪Some things in life are mundane, such as bath plugs.‬

‪Until you need one to fill or empty said bath, they are simply ignored.

I think that’s why mine has its revenge by failing to hold onto its ring, thereby rendering the ability to remove plug from its cradle like some sick form of retaliation.
