Review originally posted on The Road of a Writer: deborahocarroll.wordpressI fell in love with Jill Williamson's Blood of Kings trilogy, so it was with great delight that I learned of this prequel-series of sorts, The Kinsman Chronicles, of which KING'S FOLLY is the first installment. I'm so excited for another fantasy work from this author! I've enjoyed her other books--frankly, her writing would shine on a cereal box--but (personally) I think her real genius lies in this genre, and you can see [...]

I finally finished this book! Wow!!!!!! Jill Williamson is the queen of epic Christian fantasy! The world in this book is just so well developed and achingly real! The earthquakes, desert, deep canyons, the politicseverything. This book is based off of the Old Testament in how the country that used to follow Arman (the allegorical One True God in this book) have fallen away. Everyone does what is right in their own eyes. While this book is based off the Old Testament, it still feels like it coul [...]

One word: Epic.Kings and queens. Princes and princesses. The eternal struggle for power driven by greed and graft. Check, check, check. It's all here in one grandiose tale of the destruction of kingdoms and men. Yeah, I know that sounds kind of depressing, but in true Williamson style, there is plenty of humor and romance and action tossed into the mix.At first I was a little confused with who was who. There are a lot of names. Strange ones at that. Thankfully right at the beginning there is a g [...]

Epic. This is the word that immediately comes to mind when I think of King's Folly by Jill Williamson. Fantastic, action-filled, diverse, brilliant. This book is the first in a new series called THE KINSMAN CHRONICLES; (it's actually a prequel series to Jill Williamson's other fantasy trilogy). And it's a tremendous start! I was captivated from the beginning.In a world being torn apart by earthquakes, a grand cast of characters find mystery and meaning as doom approaches. Two sons of a king, Wil [...]

*sigh* Before I say anything, allow me to be quite forceful in pointing out that I rarely never finish a book. I read 218 pages of this book (finishing the first part of the story-Darkness Reigns) and then just didn't want to sit through another 300 pages of crap. I found this shelved in the fantasy section of my library. Well, I suppose it sort of IS a fantasy book. But, it is ALSO a christian-based fantasy story (WTF? Don't they have the Bible already?) with liberal dashes of Young Adult throw [...]

I loved Jill Williamson’s Blood of Kings trilogy, so when I heard she was releasing a prequel series, the Kinsman Chronicles, you can understand how excited I was. And King’s Folly is an exciting story in its own right . . . even if I didn’t like it quite as much as I expected.The Good: -Trevn is basically my favorite character in the entire book. Adventurous, curious, dramatic, but with a sense of responsibility and courage to match any other hero you could name. Every chapter topped with [...]

I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.It pains me to write this review, because Jill Williamson is honestly one of my personal favorite Christian authors. Her incredible writing style and immensely wonderful storylines have more than once received my 5 star rating, however, in King’s Folly, I’m afraid that she fell short of her own reputation in my eyes.The storyline of King’s Folly is very unique and [...]

MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListWell, I liked this littleg medieval book! At first, like all books that have a lot of characters, I didn't think I was going to be able to keep up with all of the people, but that wasn't true. My little brain actually worked and remembered people, I can't spell all of them but that's neither here nor there! King Echad of Armania is not a nice man and he does human sacrifices to appease the gods. At least he thinks he is.The lands keep having earthquakes and [...]

I loved the content as one whole story. I would have loved to read it through. But seeing this content serialized… It really jolted me out of the story. I found myself dropping interest in between parts. As a story, I don't think that King's Folly was correct for this form of publishing. I felt Darkness Reigns had trouble standing on it's own, and where I expected full plot I got a mere chunk. I can understand how the plot of a series works, but this story didn't have that sort of plot. This m [...]

Part one of the prequels of the Blood of Kings series, King’s Folly is quite different than its predecessor. This book begins with a series of different storylines—each chapter containing the background story of one of the main characters. Because of this, the characters remained distant for a while—I found it confusing and difficult to see at first where the author was taking this story. After reading about 35% of the book, I finally got used to the characters and started to care about wh [...]

My favorite book of 2015. Fantastic worldbuilding. Complex and developed cultures. Subtle allegory. Large cast of characters. Compelling plot. Clever storyline. Everything I like in a book by one of my favorite authors.

I am really not sure how to review this book. Overall, I was extremely frustrated. But as I outlined my complaints to my husband, he told me that everything I am describing is normal for the fantasy genre. As I rarely read fantasy, I'm not used to these particular characteristics. 1 - The plot is massive. There are many events going on at the same time and it was difficult to keep everything straight in my mind. 2 - There are way too many character POVs. The characters kept changing. There were [...]

RESEÑA COMPLETA EN ESPAÑOLFantasy that does not disappoint.I'll be honest. Fantasy is not my thing. When I check my bookshelf and I see how many books I have, there are just a few fantasy books, and I realized that it is not because I do not enjoy the genre, but because it is a bit difficult for me to understand.When I saw this book, I found it so tempting that I could not pass up. Jill Williamson is an author that I heard before, but I have never had the opportunity to read. Therefore, now se [...]

This Christian fantasy book is set in the Five Realms with well developed characters and a plot that keeps you reading. Earthquakes are becoming more and more common even with frequent sacrifices to Barthos, the god of the soil. The King of Armania still needs to choose an heir to his throne from his three sons. Who will it be? His choice could determine the future of his realm. Magnonia, a realm ruled by women, is determined to rule all the realms even if it takes magic to do it. Will good triu [...]

While I enjoyed this book, at times I found it difficult to follow the different POVs in every chapter (they were labeled for the specific characters). I didn't really get a grip on each character until about halfway through the book and had to try and recall who everyone was. This is a very adventurous story that tells of things as they were more like in ancient times, and I can appreciate it for the story it told. I will be looking forward to the next books in the series! I want to know what h [...]

I was so excited to receive my copy of this in the mail. This book has intriguing plot, likable characters, and good action sequences. King's Folly was a fairly easy read that keeps you interested. A great start to a series! I can not wait until I get to read the next one! ( I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

This is an amazing piece of work. I got the honor of being part of the Launch Team for this, and it does not disappoint. Jill Williamson writes such a detailed story world and ties it all together without overdoing anything or losing us in the plot. This book shouldn't just be for Christian Fantasy fans-anyone who appreciates good writing should read this book.

King’s Folly is fascinating, full of action and intrigue, and keeps the pages turning! You really do cheer for Williamson’s characters, which is awesome. If I had picked this from an ABA shelf, I would have thought, “What a fun, pretty clean read!” But this comes from the CBA, and I was surprised by the characters’ heavy interaction with dark spirits and the highly sexualized focus in their culture. These things are very much a part of Earth, and I am so glad Williamson paints a gritty [...]

This book will hooked you instantly. Jill's writing is soooo good. You are definitely going to love this book. Even though this book is Christian-fiction Jill touches some really controversial subjects that I think she did in a very on point way. I highly recommend this book. If you are a fan of awesome epic fantasy you should definitely read this one. This book is the first one of a series, the second one is already out so go check them both out. I'll review the second one later as soon as I'm [...]

This was an interesting book. It's hard to describe how I feel about it, which is one reason why this book floats between 3-4 stars for me (marked as 4/5 on because I rounded up :p).I like big tomes I can really dig into, and this story did it for me. The story flowed pretty well throughout, and I think that's what really kept me going. King's Folly was super long; over 500 pages in about a 6x9 format, and the font size is probably 10 pt. at least. Just think Wheel of Time: the Great Hunt long, [...]

Definitely not kid friendly, or even teen friendly. This story is very dark and I skipped much of it because it contained so much mature content. I think it was overkill. But that is my opinion. At the back of the book Jill Williamson explains how the world was inspired by events in the Old Testament, which can get pretty messed up. So here she's showing a fantasy world broken by sin. It was just too much to focus on and immerse myself in while reading. However, that said the plot is intriguing [...]

It's been a while since I've been fully engrossed in a book - and even longer since I've read a big, fat, thick book in a time frame of 24 hours. King's Folly is incredibly well-crafted, a sound story world with believable characters that I can sympathize with.

I really wanted to like this, but it's just too uneven, careening in and out of YA, stiff propriety, and epic fantasy. Could have done with an editor.
