Review: The Sword Bearer's Awakening


The Sword Bearers Awakening

Book Blurb:
She’d never experienced such agonising loss before, not even when she lost everything to the demon on her home-world, Theras, five years ago.

Driven into the darkness of emotional torment and despair, KC, the Sword Bearer, slowly struggles up towards the light to try and find a way to continue on with her life after losing the one person who made it possible.

But her lust for revenge may yet undo her – and if she succumbs to it and loses sight of who she is, then the entire Universe may forever fall into the claws of Drakoor s’et, arch demon and destroyer of worlds!


Review:
It has been a few months since I read the first two in this series, but even now the story has stuck with me. When I was given the chance to read book three, I knew I had to jump on it!
I’ve said this many times: I’m not a huge reader of fantasy, but THIS series will forever be one I will recommend to others. The story is absolutely fantastic!
From the first page, the reader is enveloped in the story. Granted, this story is LONG. Over 700 pages! So it took me a while to read all of it. But there were none of those points where I just wanted to give up. I’ve had that happen with many books.
The characters are fleshed out and so unique. While you’re reading, you can actually picture having each one of them in your life. The descriptions are fantastic! Seriously, I’m in love with the beautiful world that Ms. Rockliffe has painted for us.
Just so you know, once again, I don’t rehash stories. I give my opinion. And in my humble opinion, I’d definitely say check out this series. It’s fast and fun, engaging, and seriously should be made into movies. But that’s just me. I want to witness this story on the big screen.

 About the Author:
Born and raised in South Africa, I started writing full time when my very successful professional dance career came to a close.
I was always a brilliant storyteller since childhood, keeping friends and family enthralled for hours with my imaginative tales, and after my dancing days ended writing was a natural continuation as it is just as creative as dance and choreography - which I still do, the former to keep fit and the latter because I still teach ballet and choreograph for dance shows and competitions.
Writing fills me with joy and amazes me endlessly! I live for it!

I have three Epic Fantasy novels published: The Sword Bearers: Book 1, The Sword Bearer's Journey: Book 2, and The Sword Bearer's Awakening: Book 3. The final instalment of this tetralogy will be available in early 2014. All three books are available on Amazon and B&N.

My sci-fi short story, The Door, is also available on Amazon and Smashwords.
