The Heir Of Woodmyst: Book Three Of The Woodmyst Chronicles by Robert E Kreig is the follow-up to his previous two works in the Woodmyst Chronicles. It starts off with the white witch fleeing north and being hunted, and then we see things pick up where the previous novel had left off. Survivors of an attack are picking up the pieces and trying to decide what to do next after burning the bodies of their companions and friends. Then, we see a group of young girls being taken into the care of a mysterious woman, and they are unsure of exactly what is going on or why. Gradually, the plot unfolds and we start to see the woman's intentions, and that's when things really get interesting. The writing is excellent, and the author is to be commended for his ability to create interesting characters and fill his story with both humor and chilling details. Emily, in particular, is a compelling character as she searches for her sister Joanne. The reason behind the Sovereign's agenda ends up feeling a little cliched, but the story is interesting enough to make it a compelling read nonetheless. The novel ends with a setup for the next book in the series, likely another piece that will pick up where this one left off. This book is the third in the series, but enough details are spread throughout to make it possible for newcomers to catch up fairly easily as well. Readers of this series will find The Heir Of Woodmyst: Book Three Of The Woodmyst Chronicles by Robert E Kreig to be an excellent entry, and it is sure to delight both new and old fans.

In The Heir of Woodmyst by Robert E Kreig, the White Witch is on her way to the Sovereign, attempting to complete her mission and at the same time flee the men she has angered by killing their own. But the men, led by their new captain, seem more than ready to take her on again. They have another mission of their own, however, and that’s the rescue of some of their own people. Whether they will be able to survive the trip from the mountains, a region where even the White Witch is wary, is questionable, and if they do survive, will they be able to defeat her and her master? And will they be able to complete their rescue mission as well? You’ll find out in The Heir of Woodmyst: Book Three Of The Woodmyst Chronicles. This book is definitely a journey, showing you how the entire group travels throughout the region, attempting to fulfill their mission. But there is a lot of action with battles as they attempt to get where they need to go and, of course, the travel itself. Plus there's a little bit of romance going on too, which makes for a well-rounded story. I liked the way you were able to see the characters from both sides of the fight, both the White Witch and the men who were hunting her. There were plenty of things going on for both and being able to see what they were thinking helped you really be drawn in and not entirely sure which side you wanted to win.

A story that starts with a White Witch losing all her powers while young girls are captured already announces that something awful could be happening. The Heir of Woodmyst by Robert E Kreig is book three in The Woodmyst Chronicles, an exciting story of courage, loss, and love that will be an enjoyable read for fans of fantasy fiction.
Seven girls are captured and held in an impenetrable castle while others are captives in awful conditions. The land is besieged by a very dark power, and fear and a seething sense of restlessness rule in the hearts of men. Tomas Warde is the only hope of his people, but with just his small group of followers the chances of successfully liberating the captives and defeating the evil Sovereign are really slim. It’s exciting to watch as the small group faces all sorts of dangers to give freedom to their people, but for how long will luck continue to smile on them? The Heir of Woodmyst is a book that makes your heart beat faster. Kreig’s unique voice rings out very clearly through each page of this beautiful story. The prose is delightfully beautiful, with vivid descriptions that transport readers into strange places. The book is fast-paced, with sub-plots that bring in the element of suspense, which is biting. The characters are drawn from a world that readers may find a bit strange, but can still identify with. Kreig has that uncanny ability to combine fantasy with reality to create a story and a world that readers can easily step inside and enjoy.

The Heir Of Woodmyst is the third book in the fantasy series The Woodmyst Chronicles. Robert E Kreig continues to tell the story of Tomas, his friends and his foes. Tomas and his supporters follow a ship of attackers that have kidnapped women and their daughters after violently slaughtering the men, old and young. One of the girls had managed to escape before they were all put on the ship. Tomas can't just sit by and do nothing while the captives are shipped to who knows what kind of destiny. Along the way, they encounter dangerous beasts, dangerous people, and more than just one witch.
The Heir Of Woodmyst by Robert E Kreig was a very nice read with characters who were well developed during the previous books and have now turned into very well rounded characters. I enjoyed how the books developed from book 1 to book 3 and there is still more to come! You not only get to see Tomas' point of view, but also see what happens to one of the kidnapped girls. Plus you get to follow the path of one of the witches who will play an important role in future books, too. What I enjoyed most about this book, and the other two in the series, is the author's ability to describe the unseen. You kind of feel nervous, too, because you can't be sure what's lurking in the shadows. I found myself thinking: "What is it now? What is it now?" There is a certain type of suspense going on in parts, and it's rather well done.
