Winter’s Heart by Michael Kanuckel
This is the third book I have read by this author and as usual I was drawn into a magical world that forced me to want to know more about the characters and world being presented.
Mr. Kanuckel is a true story teller and his descriptions are unique and always spot-on. I don’t grow weary of his phrases as I do of many other books lately which seem to just peddle the same literary wares all the time.
The adventures are thrilling, the love is touching, the cruelty is intense and the reality brutal. Altogether a brilliantly prepared piece of work that has the breath of real fantasy breathed into it.
The only thing that bothers me is a personal matter about profanity and some rougher scenes that normally cause me to reject a book.
This story follows the adventures of Steven Boughmount and his friend Glen as they are sent on a perilous journey. Their actions have far-reaching effects and a series of events is put into motion that neither ever expected, involving their loved ones as well. There is loss and love, anger and war all mixed together in a very well-spun tale.
I can’t wait for the next installment.
