THE HEIR OF WOODMYST Reviewed by Ryan Jordan for Readers' Favorite
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.
