    One thought on “Ghosts of Heiland (Heir of Scars I, Part One)”

    1. A Modern Day Poe: 4.8 starsWriting: 5/5 starsIt may be hard to understand the title of this review so I am starting with my thoughts on the writing before the plot (out of order from my usual regime). There is a certain lyricism to this author's writing that is deeply reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe. The plot and story are nothing like Poe's works so I AM NOT suggesting that this author is a knock off and it is entirely possible that he's never even read Poe (for all I know) - but the romanticism [...]

    2. Jacob Fallling has a style of writing that fits perfectly with the type of story he is trying to tell. It's difficult to explain exactly what I mean other than to say his writing is beautiful, and exactly right for the fantasy world he has created in this novella.Ghosts of Heiland is the story of Adria who has learned to live among a tribe of people who are not her own. The story opens with her being recognized by a guard as she raids a village of what used to be her own people. As the story dev [...]

    3. I was given this book in return for an honest review. This is a novella, so I will keep a short story review, short. Adria was the pincess of the Aeman of Heiland, she left to join the Aesdhe, The Wilding ghosts of the deep wood. There she learns to be a healer and a warrior. She doesn't know who she is at times, a healer or a traitor. She has terrible dreams of drowning, a promise to fulfil to her brother, Hafgrim, and some ghosts as well. During a raid on her homeland to feed the homeless and [...]

    4. I received this book from the author for an honest review.I love books that pull you into their pages without remorse for what you leave behind. This is one of those books. It has a depth to it that is not easily understood unless you allow yourself to be fully immersed into the life of the main character Adria, and the world the Author creates. Even though this is only a Novella, the author does this all within a few pages and I can't imagine what reading the whole series will do to me. Creatin [...]

    5. I don't know where to begin with this book. It was so beautifully written as to be almost poetic at times.Adria is an exiled princess but years among the oft hunted Aesidhe have taken any highborn tendancies out of her. She is a hunter now. She is stronger than she ever was and now cares deeply for the very people who were once her enemies. But she is not one of them. She has a family that she still loves despite all that they've done and a promise made long ago that she must now keep.This is th [...]

    6. It's a good readI would have liked seeing a little more character development but the characters were well constructed. It's got a pretty good plot line even and it's well written. In my opinion Ghosts is well worth a read.

    7. This is a wonderful introduction for what promises to be a very exciting read. Jacob Falling has a strong skill for characterization, showing us not only well-rounded characters (particularly Adria, since we see everything in these chapters from her perspective) but also a well-developed society. We learn about the Aesidhe in a way that allows us to immerse in this world quickly and without the excesses of info-dumping that are sadly frequent in literature.The one complaint I can make is that th [...]

    8. Quick read about a woman named Adria who can hold her own and is learning to become better and find her calling. This is not my genre of choice but I did enjoy the story. The author quickly pulls you into his world. WaAR

    9. Addicting and intriguing, each time I pick it up to read a page or two I find myself making a break from the real life instead and embrace a new world of strong characters and amazing storytelling.
