The Knife's Edge by Matthew Wolf
When legends come to life the world trembles from a single name. Ronin. Once-heroes from a different age, they wield elemental powers… wind, water, fire, stone, forest, sun, moon, flesh, and metal.
At the same time, a young man discovers his best friend with a sword in her stomach, and dark wings sprouting from her back. Guards rush onto the scene, accuse him of the act, and he is forced to flee. In a new world without his memories, Gray must find his way amid legends and darkness, as he wrestles with an elemental power inside himself.
A power all too similar to the infamous Ronin…
Praise for The Knife's Edge
"A truly engaging story!" - Tracy Hickman, New York Times Bestselling Author and creator of the Dragonlance Series
"Amazing, I am so happy when I find books that keep me up all night. This is a tome of light, among darkness. Never a boring page, action packed and loved the story. Can't wait for the second book. And I want to know more about all the characters." - Tor-Ole Halverson
"This book has everything any epic fantasy lover is looking for in a book, mesmerizing characters, fantastical creatures, sword fights, magic, mystery and even comedy. For some the beginning of the book might seem to be slow, but the further you read, it gets better on each page. Matthew Wolf does an excellent job describing every scene, every character, every feeling and the consequences the character take to submerge you into this wonderful world he has created. I just can't wait for book 2 to continue with this epic saga that I just fell in love with!" - Dominique
My Review: Knife's Edge by Matthew Wolf
3 1/2 Stars
I liked the first part of the story and really enjoyed the last half. The first part was a lot of information, and introducing new characters. I admit I got a little mixed up on the character names.
After the story was done I discovered a Glossary. Lots of names & descriptions. So if you like me get confused you know where to go.
This is a epic story. Has lots going for it. Magic, prophecy, light against dark, epic battles, dragons, heroes, legends coming to life, elves, secret tunnels. There is a lot of drama, action, suspense of knowing who to trust. A good story a little slow in beginning as the world is built.
I had to read this over two days. The second day's reading was far better than the first. Which just could have been me over the story.
Kirin is the boy who the book is centered around. But his name changes later to Gray. He has a sword that everyone wants to control. No one can weld it but him. It has a darkness around it sometimes a light. Gray has to control it and choose what side he is on.
Their world is under attack from an ancient enemy. That wants to destroy everything and kill everyone.
Their appear an ancient protectors the Ronin. A lot of their history is lost. Some believe that they turned against man. The Ronin do not want the sword to fall in the wrong hands. They want to protect Gray.
Gray and friends flee against the army destroying different cities. There group gets bigger and bigger as they flee trying to find safety.
I can't wait to see what the next part of the saga is.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it.
