    1 thought on “Stolen Crown

    1. Disappointing.McKiernan s early work in Mithgar was highly derivative, charitably described as a Tolkien homage less charitably, a blatant ripoff but his later work had evolved into something a bit original and interesting While still very much beholden to JRRT, it was at least branching out into newer territory with works that were occasionally fun and sometimes added something to genre.This one not so much This one pulls out an unexplored bit of history of the world, where the high king is mu [...]

    2. I ve been reading Dennis McKiernan s books since 1993 Pretty much read them all except the short story ones , and I m a huge fan Here, with The Stolen Crown, the author comes through again with a fascinating vision of a time in the Kingdom of Mithgar, where all sorts of things are going on, and of the great consequences that effect the realm Told from multiple points of view, both the heroes and the villians, McKiernan masterfully tells his tale Reading it on a Kindle, when I got up to the clima [...]

    3. Terrible I was a huge fan of Dennis Mckiernan and Mithgar back in the day After reading this disaster I m now questioning whether my tastes have just gotten sophisticated or if this book is really just that terrible

    4. I am a very big fan of the fantasy books of Dennis L McKiernan and was very excited to find he had written another, especially after hearing his musings about retiring the series then once Stolen Crown is not quite up to the best of his imaginative works but, it is still a fast paced and fun read set once in his world of Mithgar The story is simple, brutal usurper Arkov of Garia has murdered the High King Valen and his family and taken his throne But, a ruse has allowed two year old Reyer,son [...]

    5. I m an unabashed McKiernan fan I ve loved most of his books but the last few haven t had the same magic for me.Good things about Stolen Crown Clear direction for the characters, everyone had a purpose and filled it with the appropriate mix of humor and gravitas Characters were awesome and McKiernan has a knack for writing about people you will grow to care about The rising tension for the final battle as the armies moved toward each other was excellent McKiernan built up the climax to a gigantic [...]

    6. This book starts off a little tedious and I really wasn t a fan of the description of every area they were in or intending to go into before getting into the chapter but it started to get better as I got deeper into the story I enjoyed the build of the story itself without the annoying narratives of the layout of the land and the connection between Reyer and Alric It was focused on humans than some of McKiernan s other books which tend to focus on Elves, Dwarves or Warrows Very good read as are [...]

    7. Not as good as previous books in this series Mainly because this was not really a novel with story development and charactizations to complete the plot and tell a tale This was like a diary where each chapter told an event or presented a description of something being observed or discussed There was not a lot of narative as with a normal novel This tale was given to use a bit here and there and was only so so Hopefully if stories come along they will return to the standard format and old narat [...]

    8. McKiernan breaks from his traditional format of a long detailed account by summarizing events with a quick pace Some readers may enjoy the rapid story but I prefer the longer method McKiernan also started each chapter with a geography or history lesson that led into the current chapter s setting I found this disruptive to the flow of the plot and quit reading these intros about half way through the book Overall, I was disappointed, hoping for depth, but was able to get into the story enough tha [...]

    9. I was really disappointed by this book Dennis McKeirnan got me started on fantasy and I have always loved his books This one though got me dreading the beginning of each chapter because they began with a geography lesson that didn t really enhance the story The story also lacked, something, the magic that McKeirnan is able to weave into his stories just wasn t there this time Hopefully this was not his last foray into Mithgar.

    10. Another fine read in a long series of fantasy novels If you like standard good vs evil, humans, elves and dwarves vs evil spawn these books are for you Character development sufficient to enable the reader to get to know the main characters, plenty of action and intrigue One complaint I would have loved to see the final battle that culminated the story be longer and with greater detail.

    11. I m a huge fan of McKiernan s work HUGE He s the only author I have signed books from It s with a heavy heart I had to rate this 2 stars It didn t hold up to his previous works There was too much jumping around between characters and locations I couldn t really get attached to any character or their fate This is less of a review, and of a suggestion to start with the authors earlier Mithgar works.

    12. The read was very slow with very little action For a book that may or may not be the conclusion of a series there seems way too much world building both locations and race descriptions I expected from such a known author This book was written after he d supposedly ended the series which might explain why I didn t care for it as much.

    13. Trying to give us a novel with a story that should be new to us, however it seems as if there is still a lot here whereby the author is playing to those who are already fans How omnipotent can Dalavar be

    14. Liked it but not as much as previous books Maybe because I tried to make it last as long as possible , but I wasn t as attached to the characters as usual There was no real character growth so it felt like the set up to a bigger story.

    15. As a fan of his previous books I will not be overly harsh with this review I will simply say it felt as though he was trying to write as many pages as possible to meet a quota It was disappointing and uninspired.

    16. Started slow but was interesting enough to keep reading Was good in the middle and towards the end but Was very lackluster and ended very quickly Overall the story felt undeveloped and incomplete

    17. The first really great read that I have enjoyed in a while McKiernan is the master of creating wonderful characters his good guys are really good, and his bad guys are really bad McKiernan is in my top three fantasy writers of all times.

    18. This is very traditional high fantasy dwarves and elves almost straight out of Tolkien, pseudo medieval characters, blackhatted, mustache twirling Necromancers and mysterious Mages It should be perfectly decent as summer reading, but unfortunately this one didn t grab me.

    19. The story was good, but I think the description of all the places in the kingdom could have been tied in better with the story.

    20. Good story Written a bit too academically with too much detail in some places, and not enough in others Will probably read another Mithgar novel.

    21. I just couldn t get into it With so much to read if a book doesn t grab me within the first 50 pages it gets put down

    22. Though others call him a Tolkien clone I have always enjoyed the Mithgar tales by McKiernan This was far from the best but still readable.
