Alana Woods' book reviews: The binding by L Filloon

Posted by Alana Woods on August 4, 2012 at 7:00 PM

I discovered this book when I visited the author's Facebook page. The blurb had me immediately clicking on the link to Amazon and buying it - and I wasn't disappointed.

It's a fast-paced, action-packed fantasy ride with likeable heroines and heroes.

I'm not going to give much away about the story and plot line because they're a large part of the charm of this book.

The binding is book 1 of The velesi trilogy. One aspect that made an impression is that the setting is so familiar; it's earth, the locations are real and the heroines are human. The ending foreshadows a different setting but where it will be is not disclosed.

The many typos and mistakes including incorrect tenses marred the reading experience for me. After finishing I made the point of visiting the author's website and found that an edited edition has now been published. This should make all the difference. However, I can only go by what I read and because of the poor editing and formatting of the version I read I'm giving the book 3 stars. Without those problems it would have been 4 stars.

If you like fantasy i recommend this one.

Book 2 The drifting is scheduled for release in October this year and I will be buying it as I already feel connected to the characters.

3 stars.

Here's the link to the book on Amazon.
