Book Review: Beginning of a Hero (Legends of Windemere)

I am posting my Goodreads review of Charles Yallowitz’ first book of the Legends of Windemere series.

I thoroughly enjoyed “Beginning of a Hero (Legends of Windemere)”. This fantasy action novel engaged me from the beginning of the book, and maintained great action scenes throughout. I didn’t do any reading skip-overs like I’ve done with other books, because the author provides good description without wordiness. I think adult and young adult readers will enjoy the book. I’m certainly interested in the next book. I appreciated the author creating a believable fantasy world, and delivering an epic action filled adventure.

I also enjoyed the characters and their personalities. I’m a former WoW player (got to level 70 and quit before WotLK). It felt like I was progressing through exciting quests, with unique and surprising battle scene elements.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes a fast paced and interesting fantasy action story, anyone who plays/played D&D, anyone who has played any RPG, LARPers, or anyone who wants an engaging fantasy action story. Windemere looks to be an interesting world. I look forward to all the adventures spawned from Windemere. 5 stars

  1. Ooo! I’ll look for this for my Kindle.

  2. Thanks for the glowing review. Love the connection you make to RPG’s. 🙂

      Absolutely. It was a great read. I’m unsure which character was my favorite. Tough choice. I’m leaning toward Fritz or Nimby, but Duggan is awesome too.

      • Fritz has a fan! Sorry, but you’re the first person to even mention Fritz. Everyone loves Nimby or Stiletto. The Lich has gained more fans than Fritz for some reason. 🙂

          Some people always love the bad guy. I like gnomes, his brain capability as described in the book was cool.

        • He shows a new trick in the second too.

          W00t! Can’t wait. May, right?

        • I’m hoping. It comes down to how busy my cover artist is. At the end of March, he said it would be a few weeks before he was done. I translated it to May. I’m being childishly optimistic.

          Well best to get it right. Good night, author Yallowitz. I’m an early to bed, early to rise guy. Looks like you are a night owl. May your pages continue filling with adventures. You’ve worked hard for a number of years. To success!

        • Thanks. Actually, I’m early to rise and late to bed, which is not a smart way to go through life.
