Jared Garrett ä 3 free readI really wanted to like this book It seemed like a fun departure from my norm But for me the character and backstory development wasn t uite deep enough and the writing was basic I mean I couldn t write a book so I can t really udge too much but the whole time I Placing Memory just kept having flashbacks of high school teachers saying show don t tell Now if this story was written by Sarah Maas with all her twisty plotty evil amazing genius it would ve been great The plot was absolutely ripe with opportunity to make some great twists or develop relationships I wish the author had capitalized on those chances some it would have made a huge difference for meIn the end Iust rushed through to the finish because it was a book club book If it hadn t been I would ve put it down I received a free copy of Lakhoni from Future House Publishing in exchange for an unbiased reviewThis is the first book in a seriesThe story is set in a world that is reminiscent of Ancient America The author creates a world full of different tribes mystical artifacts and secret conspiracies It is a story of a boy Lakhoni and his rite of passage to become a man On his way he encounters people that will become his friends and some who might be his foes but you can never be uite sure who is which and experiences thrilling adventures that will lead him to the secret he never knew even existed in the first placeThis first book introduces all the important characters and sets the basis for a story full of deceit the uest for ustice and the rekindling of family tiesOne thing I believe the author could improve on in the seuel is the pacing The story was a bit slow though some Important Events Felt Rushed While events felt rushed while incidents that were not essential to the plot were too detailed for my tasteI do believe though Lakhoni s adventures will lead him to uncover even secrets in the future and will empower him to become a hero for the people he cares about and loves I enjoyed reading this novel Clearly not intended to be a standalone work it entails the triggering element and
SUBSEUENT STAGES OF A UEST FORstages of a uest for I found that the story moved along at a pretty good pace I think there were some scenes and characters that are likely important for future installments but they didn t really add much to this particular tale I do understand the choice to include them it allows the chronology to make sense but I think it did sacrifice some tautness in the main story for this volumeThe main characters are vividly rendered and well fleshed out considering that we only really experience them through Lakhoni s or Ree s perspectives I think that certain usually those with smaller roles characters were a little flat some ambiguity would have helped them seem less like caricaturesMy biggest concern was in the world building I found it very difficult to settle myself into this universe The cover art and Lakhoni s name as well as the fact that it was advertised as historical fiction led me to believe that this was featuring Mayan or Aztec cultures and for a long time I though the Usurpers were Colonial explorersinvaders but the descriptions and cultures portrayed really didn t match with my understanding of those I mentioned I spent much of the novel trying to determine where and when this was set Once I accepted it as a fantasy or speculative fiction novel I was able to ust enjoy it for what it is I think the marketing choices were the culprit behind most of my discomfort but I do feel that intense and clear world building would have overcome the notions I was led to developI think this is an interesting series although distinctive world building would elevate it to a whole other level I would be interested in reading as the plot was interesting and while the twists were straightforward they were well written and the author did a good ob of ensuring they weren t bolts completely out of the blue I received a copy of this book through Voracious Readers Only Fabulous and fun adventure story It s set in an interesting world like maybe an alternate history It seems like Lakhoni has been left for dead When the King's guards attack his village and slaughter his people he regains consciousness only to find his sister has been taken captive Armed with only a bow Lakhoni must traverse a brutal wilderness face deadly warriors and battle legendary tattooed. Fantasy landscape but there s no magic in the story
