AN INTIMATE HISTORY OF THE GREATER KINGDOM

An Intimate History Indeed

By Sonja Nitschke, editor

Jul 13, 2008: An Intimate History of the Greater Kingdom has everything that every good fantasy story needs: magic, prophecies, mysterious—apparently immortal – mentors and curses just to mention a few. But unlike most fantasy stories, there is no apparent Quest – it is simply the history of the Kingdom. Not the dull sort of history in text books that are nothing but dates and other unmemorable facts, but the story of the people who shaped the course of a Kingdom.

WONDER CITY STORIES

Wonderful City

By Asmora, member

Jan 20, 2013: First, Wonder City is NOT a soap opera. Some of the early chapters might have that feel, and I suppose the rotating PoV is similar, but Wonder City doesn’t let itself get buried under the romances and intrigues of its characters. The romance and intrigue is there, but the story is driven by a plot that is sometimes subtle and sometimes insistent. The multiple points of view start out apparently unconnected, but they are gradually drawn together for a powerful climax at the end of each volume.
