Review 1: The Highwayman – The Saga of the First King Book 1 by TLRJohnny
Wow! I’m a HUGE fan of Salvatore’s other books – I’ve read the 30-ish books in the Drizzt series as well as his 3-book series “The Crimson Shadow” – but this one might top them all! Firstly, to my surprise, it doesn’t even feel like Salvatore’s other works, except for some of the descriptions of certain fight scenes. The story and characters are so original. How can an author be so prolific and yet not feel like he is getting repetitive?? Anyway, this is a work of sheer beauty that had me physically nervous and exultant at several points. The narration is also top notch. I recommend this book very, very highly.
Review 2: The Highwayman – The Saga of the First King Book 1 by Pam W
A good look at humankind
Having read “Child of a Mad God”, I was wanting more of this world. The Highwayman introduces the reader to the world of Corona, and it’s struggles with battling religions. A hard place to live in, and even harder for a young boy born with physical disabilities. This is the story of Bransen Garibond, an orphaned cripple, growing up among hateful prejudices, overcoming all obstacles,with the help of a book left to him by his parents. Wonderfully written with excellent narration by Tim Gerard Reynolds, this story is well worth the time.
Review 3: The Highwayman – The Saga of the First King Book 1 by Sailfish
A nail-biting emotional roller coaster
While listening to this novel unfold, I found myself thinking of the ruthlessness of Game of Thrones in a musical backdrop of Gene Pitney’s “Town Without Pity” and the thrills and chills of some frightening Dean Koonz constant foreboding doom.
An odd book in many ways but, to the end, very satisfying.
