  • Wayne Thomas Batson is one of my favorite authors His booksThe Door withinandIsle of Swordsare two of my all time favorite books I love how he combines humor, action, and Christian themes into some pretty awesome stories.Sword in the Starsis about former assassin Alastair Coldhollow as he tries to deal with his horrible past while also searching for the Halfinnin, the prophesied Savior who will save the kingdom of Anglinore Meanwhile, tensions between Anglinore and an enemy nation escalate, and [...]

  • I m very busy college wise these days, so excuse the rather wimpy, short review PBefore I say anything else, I LOVE the cover of this book The card, the sea, the stars all gorgeous Knowing very little about the book itself, it was that cover that made me hound my library to buy a copy I really liked the genre and the idea of this book I adore fantasy, and I m a Christian, put those two things together and it can be the recipe for something great Unfortunately, this book stumbled a little from wh [...]


  • Seriously putting it, Sword in the Stars was an epic book It kept me captivated all evening I finished it an about 6 or less hours Alastair Coldhollow is The Iceman, the person who shall find the fabled Halfainan when the sword in the stars appears in the night sky when the moon is red Alastair soon finds himself caring for a baby boy and whisked off into an adventure with the charming Abbagael In his adventures, Alastair never forgets his true mission, to find the Halfainan Far away, the race o [...]

  • This was quite an interesting book, very different from what you would expect and usually hearbut a very good read all the same


  • When I first started reading Sword in the Stars, I thought I might find it somewhat familiar because of how many books I read in this genre, but after Wayne Thomas Batson found his path, it surprised me fairly often It took me about thirty pages to really find myself interested in the story, but once it got going, I couldn t put it down Batson tried things that other authors in the genre rarely even attempt.For example, how many fantasy epic writers introduce a baby to the story 70 pages in And [...]


  • It took me awhile to get into it, but once I was and understood all the characters, I found myself really enjoying this book.


  • A destroyed man Identical twin kings who don t have similar plans for the kingdom A world hanging in the balance with only One who can save it.Alastair is a man searching whether for peace of mind, someone to save him and the world through The Halflainin, or for relief from life in the bottom of a bottle of Whitchdrale, he is searching I like him because he doesn t know, he is uncertain, lost even So often in books the hero might not know what to do but they just keep pushing on, thinking it wil [...]


  • I really liked this book In fact, it ranks second in my list of Wayne Thomas Batson s books I read it in four hours It was a great story with good characters, interesting locations, a bad guy who actually seems to act evil, unlike others I ve read about, and seem epic battles The basic premise is that Alastair Coldhollow believes he is the Caller and will summon the Halfainan The Halfainan will end all evil and save the world in the last days But he has some serious problems He is addicted to Wi [...]


  • 2.5 stars The romance felt forced, too many names to keep track of in parts, some characters were rather dull, the beginning was wacky in terms of pacing, and there was some unresolved build up that felt like it was only there for future books in the series It got better near the end though The villains were really cool and creepy And some of the world building was quite cool and the shepherds They were so cool I m looking forward to reading the second book and I m hoping its better.


  • In the land of Myriad, darkness is gathering From the Elladorian to the Stonehand, the nine races are under attack from an old foe but is their true enemy truly the Gorrack nation, or an enemy far older and sinister While bloody raids and battles abound, the true war is being fought on a smaller, deadly scale Morlan, younger twin brother to the king, keeps many secrets and chaffs under his brother s rule.His brother, Aravel, is recognized as kind and courageous leader, but the reigns of his pow [...]


  • Alastair Coldhollow is a criminal A man struggling with memories of a past he has renounced, and yet still haunted with the guilt that has seeped into his life and echoes from his past addictions And he puts his very life on the line because of his hope that the Sword will appear in the stars, and show the way for the Caller to find the foretold Halfainin And Alastair hangs his life on the hope that he will be the Caller to find the Halfainin to rest his guilt at last And then it happens The thi [...]


  • Back cover summary Haunted by memories of a violent past, Alastair Coldhollow wagers his life on the hope that a sword will appear in the stars and the foretold Halfainin, the Pathwalker, would come Meanwhile, tensions simmer between Anglinore and the murderous Gorrack Nation, threatening war on a cataclysmic scale The fate of all could rest on an abandoned child and the decisions of those who desperately seek to identify him Sword in the Stars is the first release in The Dark Sea Annals series [...]


  • Excerpt links to full review On balance however, at times some portions of the story were very predictable though I don t think Wayne was really trying to hide anything from the reader For example, Alastair is given a sign that he will be the one to find the savior known as the Halfainian, it takes him quite a while to even consider the baby who goes through a major portion of the novel being unnamed thrust upon him in the first third of the novel as a potential candidate for the prophesized sav [...]


  • This was a five star book until King Aravel found out about Alastair this was a big moment but the author treated it with only a couple of paragraphs, which upset me Where is some rumination from the king for this man who saved his army with exemplary military strategy swordsmanship The king dismissed his information about his brother that he should have gleaned from years of intelligence work Explaining the king s ignorance was necessary delve into his style of kingship , his vanity, etc Then t [...]


  • Medieval fantasy has always been a favorite genre of mine I guess this started with Tolkien and Lewis, and ever since I ve loved this type of book The Sword in the Stars has been recommended to me by several friends for several months, so I decided to finally give it a try.I was immediately captivated in this story It relies heavily on Christian allegory while simultaneously having its own incredible story And the fact that it has freaking awesome cover art didn t hurt either.Wayne Thomas Batson [...]

  • This book has so much goodness in it Pros A complicated, really interesting world Kind of Tolkien esque in that there s a lot of worldbuilding that s gone into it I love the little blurbs before each chapter that lend light on different facets of the world So many original ideas that lend to a fascinating world.Complex, realistic characters who don t fall to the common black white pitfalls of Christian literature I particularly loved the interactions between the MC, who struggles with a lot of s [...]


  • Ever since reading The Door Within Trilogy, the first books I d ever read by Wayne Thomas Batson, I am a fan for life Through those books, Mr Batson became my favorite author right up there with J.R.R Tolkien So when I first started hearing about Sword in the Stars, I was incredibly excited and anxious to read it Now that I have, I can say it did not disappoint Five stars, most definitely The world he created was very interesting with all the different races and I loved the characters, especiall [...]

  • Mr Batson has done it again The Sword in the Stars is the exciting beginning to the Dark Sea Annals series, telling the story of a man struggling with a dark and bloody past as he seeks the ultimate forgiveness while trying his hardest to resist both love and a crippling addiction All this while devastating war threatens the country This story is quite a bit darker than previous ones I ve read by Mr Batson, but it s wasn t excessive, and there was humor subtle and obvious that proves even in the [...]
