Institute of Magic (Dragon's Gift: The Druid Book 1) (English Edition) Reviews
It’s a really good one if you liked Bree’s story you’re gonna love this too. The history of Paris is completely wrong though! The oldest settlements there are 10000 years old and the city of Parisii was already established hundreds of years before the Romans (Julius Cesar) conquered it. Not to mention climbing the Eiffel Tower! Girl have you ever been there? I think anyone who were on its top (with elevator of course) would LOL on that one as did I. Besides that it’s all good and please keep them coming! Thx
I started reading this book and i was captivated. It has some good surprises too, andsome funny mistakes: "They had gray skin and black eyes, with long pointed ears close to their skulls. Black claws tipped their hands. Their auras were as black as pitch, swirling around them like fog. Pale yellow eyes gleamed at us as they licked their fangs."I have never read a book before where the word 'butt' was used so often.I got the book with a kindle unlimited subscription
I like the mix of fact and fiction. Gallery of caracters believable and interesting and i Love the plots. Please Mode of this.......
Books about magic are a favorite! As are coming of age novels. Even though the female leads in Linsey's books are a bit older than "coming of age", I've read and enjoyed the three previous trilogies in this series. But, there is a certain thematic similarity to them. Young woman discovers she has powers and has to learn to use them while facing existential threats. She meets a really studly super-mage, or god, or wizard and after some issues, they become companions or mates and he helps her. And somewhere along the line, she acquires some cute familiars who help her, bailing her out when she gets into trouble.Chefs and serial authors tend to use recipes. Great cooks change things up. Maybe putting cayenne instead of paprika into the crab au gratin? Maybe shrimp instead of crab? If the chef doesn't change and only prepares the same dish again and again, the restaurant will fold unless there are lots of tourists in town.I've gotten to that point with this series. Probably the straw that broke the camel's back was Bree's familiars. Three cats called, the "cats of catastrophe". Just too much insipid cuteness.Maybe it's time to come up with a new recipe and a new kind of character. Thanks, I've enjoyed enough, check please, I'm outa here.
Fast read but somewhat shallow. Good use of glib-style humor but it was missing depth for balance making it hard for me to care about the main characters. Good guys recover, bad guys die. More like a storybook than a novel. Still, it kept me entertained enough to finish. I liked the cats.
I really enjoyed this fantastic beginning of Ana's story, sister of the now famous Bree, a Dragon God. I wondered why Ana's magic never manifested in the Valkyrie story, which I just call Bree's story. I really admire how Linsey builds her characters slowly. I feel Ana will be a bit different than Bree, after all it is called, The Druid Series! How I love druids I am such a Terry Brooks fan, however everybody develops Druids in their own way, This book is for fans of Paranormal Fantasy, and you'll love it. I begrudgingly admit I enjoy the romance, I'm more of an action guy, being a former Special Forces Operator, but I've mellowed through age, and I yearn to remember those feelings of youth. 5 stars because it included all aspects of a paranormal fantasy with twists thrown in. I'm interested in discovering more about Lachlan and why he's such a powerful Mage. Now onto Crime of Magic, see ya then...
Ms. Hall's Institute of Magic is a fast moving tale of a young woman yearning to join a group of warriors fighting the black magic of those planning on taking over the world. Their own magic powers nullified by the enemy's powers, they must fight with conventional weapons and their brains. Teamwork might give them a chance but the enemy's magic is strong. I love the description of the buildings and landscape Linsey Hall paints for the reader. Told in the first person by Ana, the reader joins in the bloody battles against ugly demons and downright terrifying monsters.
I love this author's writing! The characters are real and believable even in a magic world. I was so enthralled that I couldn't put the book down and had to follow it up with book 2 and 3.The story starts with the heroine participating in a race as part of her magical 'exams' so to speak. Then the protectorates are all called to help with a case which turns out to be a very serious situation and not a competition as it started out as. The hero sees something in the heroine which she doesn't even see herself, but they soon click and work together well. One thing leads to another. One difficult, dangerous situation leads to more danger and more intrigue, and through all of this the heroine's own magic starts to blossom and bloom.
