Trailer ¿ The Third Scroll PDF by ¿ Dana Marton I have read many Dana Marton romantic suspense books When i was offered the chance to read her new fantasy novel, The Third Scroll I didn t know what to expect First i don t usually read any fantasy Wasn t sure i could get into it no matter if it was well written or not because i didn t think it could be my thing I admit i did have a hard time getting through the first 20% of it Mostly because the first book in a series has to have some back story and detailed info on the setting and I also was struggling thinking i wouldn t like it When i finally got a nice block of time to sit and read with out work, kids etc going at me I found myself entranced The i read the i liked I read the last 80% book is 450 pages in one sitting The writing is just beautiful It flows sometimes like water I don t know how else to describe it other than to say i enjoyed how it felt reading it Does that mak I really enjoyed this book I d forgotten how much I enjoy the romance genre, and I was pleasantly surprised to find the story set in a fantasy world even better Loved the suspense of the relationship and the writing style.
The only reason this missed out on five stars is because I found the ending fell a little flat For the first 80% of the book I couldn t put it down Then suddenly it seemed to lose pace.
I look forward to book two in the saga Dana Marton has done such a good job with the first book, and I m sure the second will be better still.
To Escape Punishment, Tera, A Maiden Healer Sold To Barbarians Must Hide The Truth She Has Not Yet Come Into Her Healing Powers Born Into A Much Gentler World, She Struggles To Survive In A Land Of Savage Warlords And Their Cruel Concubines When Ancient Prophecies Begin To Come To Pass, Can The Healer Slave Save The Realm And Awaken The High Lord S Heart For Anyone Who Enjoyed The Fantasy Worlds Of George Martin S Game Of Thrones, CL Wilson S Lord Of The Fading Lands, Elizabeth Vaughan S Warprize, Or The Memorably Crafted Healer Heroines In Jean Auel S Clan Of The Cave Bear And Diana Gabaldon S Outlander Series, This Is The Next Epic Adventure To Get Lost In I picked this book up when I found it listed as free on I have to admit that what first made me want it was the beautiful cover, and although I have tons of other books that I have also picked up for free, I chose this one to read first I cannot begin to express how much I LOVED this book It had me captivated from the beginning until the end, even bringing tears to my eyes as I read the final chapter Yes, it was THAT good I loved the main character, a beautiful strong willed woman that stays true to the nature of her heart even during the most trying of circumstances Personally at some parts I wanted her to want revenge, but when she chose the higher path I admired her courageous spirit The only part that bothered me was that the second The first few pages were difficult to get started with all of the sentences are choppy and abrupt, but eventually it all leveled out and turned into a decent flowfor a bit there this book was a solid 4 stars, and for a tiny bit it even rose to possibly 5 stars, and then it kind of diverged into two story lines, and holy crap during the last 20% this book dropped to a 3 and then to a 2 We have a healer who is sold into slavery, she meets another slave in the household she is sold into and even though she doesn t spend a ton of time with this other girl for some reason she becomes utterly devoted to her and they become BFFs way later in the book Eventually our healer is given to the High Lord and becomes his only This book was a well written epic fantasy embodying the character of a healer Like most in this genre, it covered a wide array of world building, plot points, and character development Some of these things I felt were done superbly, while others I felt were less deft in their execution.
I found the characters in this book to be likeable and enduring While some of the secondary characters seemed to be introduced into this work to be used at a later time, the characters we did interact with enough to know were both real and relatable They grew as the story went on and showed both fortitude and resilience Some of the conflicts between characters early in this book were used in a large part to shape our main protagonist and her view of the world she had been thrust into That these were then later forgotten left me feeling incomplete This lack of closure could be in part so that these Nope.

5 starsI love love love being surprised by a book I d never heard of Dana Morton before she was linked up by another author for a giveaway and I discovered her by liking her Facebook page Then I spotted a few posts about The Third Scroll, and loved the cover enough to check it out And then I spotted it was only 77p on and the rest is history.
Now don t get me wrong, 77p self published books don t often get my attention just because of their price, so I have no idea why I chose this one over others But I m so glad I did because it s one of the best 77p s I ve spent in a long while.
The writing is decent Dana s style is fluid despite being written in a traditional sense to befit the genre, and descriptive without being over bearing, as well as appearing to have been spilled with an ease that carries the reader along with little hitch to their stride.
The world buildi I give this book an averaged 2.
5 stars Up to chapter 14 I thought it was a 3 star read but after that it quickly dropped to a 2 star meh, why am I still reading this rating.
Before I properly begin my review I want to say that I think it was a very poor marketing decision to go with the Harlequin like re title Reluctant Concubine over the original The Third Scroll It s going to put off a lot of possible fantasy readers who generally tend to be drawn to stories involving epic sword battles, magic, mythical beings, and fiendish plots to take over the world, because it gives the impression the story is going to be about some woman wearing a veil and hanging out in a harem not doing much On the flip side I think it s going to disappoint a lot of romance readers when they discover the novel is, for the most part, not as heavy on the smexy ti disclaimer I met Dana Marton last week at RWA, but that was only made shinier because I d just finished this book We had a great OMG, I loved your book No, I loved your book exchange.
All that said, I was a bit chagrined to discover that, though I d finished RELUCTANT CONCUBINE right before RWA, I d missed my final review and rating in the furor of leaving It s an excellent fantasy romance, very slow burn Awesome worldbuilding and unusual story structure The beginning is a bit slow, IMO, so forge past that WELL worth the read And yes, I had lunch with Dana and spent most of it bugging her to write book 3 She s starting on it this week You re welcome.
