We Are Voulhire: The Flesh of the Mind is a science fiction and fantasy novel written by Matthew Tysz. This story is mainly set in Caromentis. In this book, we get to see what happens after the attack on Voulhire and how the citizens react to it.

The Emperor of Lullabies and the nightynights attack Voulhire. There is a lot of chaos and confusion going on. Meanwhile, Meldorath reaches Caromentis where he happens to meet King Javikun. Later, Galen gets separated from Rowan and Demetrius to go to Caromentis to seek Meldorath’s help to save Voulhire. So, will Meldorath agree to Galen’s request? Will the trio come together again? Well, you will have to read the book to get your answers.

This is the sixth book of the We Are Voulhire series. All the parts of this series are interconnected. So I urge everyone to read the previous books first and only then start with this one. The author has done a great job of creating and describing the world of Caromentis and the people living there. His writing is quite eloquent yet fancy. He has made sure that the readers understand what exactly is going on without creating any confusion. This book is filled with action and suspense which makes it hard to put down.

I enjoyed reading this book. One of my favorite scenes is when Galen meets the baking woman. That scene is pretty scary, but hilarious at the same time. I appreciate how the author has included humor in this book to balance out the drama and tension. There are two quotes in this book that resonated with me. They are: “just hold the enemy long enough to learn their pattern” and “no teacher like your own ambition.” I can literally consider these as life-lessons. I liked seeing the different versions of the previously mentioned characters. The character-development is quite evident in this book when compared to the preceding books.

There is nothing that I disliked about this book. But sometimes I had to go back and refer to the previous books so that I could relate better to the present context. Overall, I had a great time reading this book. I just found a single error that is totally negligible. So I think the book is professionally edited. With that being said, I rate We Are Voulhire: The Flesh of the Mind 4 out of 4 stars. I have no reason to rate this book any lower.

This book contains profanity and obscenity. So this is not suitable for children. I highly recommend this to everyone who likes reading science fiction and fantasy novels, and for also those who like reading stories with magical elements in it. I do not recommend this to people that are highly sensitive to action, thriller, and horror.

I can see that the author has started exploring the world of caromentis. I've so eager to see how magical that world would be. Thanks for this interesting review.

Matthew Tysz has an extraordinary imagination. I am awed that he can write two series simultaneously. Even JK Rowling wasn't able to do that.

A mix of science fiction and fantasy seems quite interesting to read with mentioning of kings and emperors . Thanks for your wonderful review of this book.
life is only knowing the unknown, we can do this by reading books easily- I believe this is my own quote. If someone quoted this before I am glad to know.

Thanks for your review. It's good to see that while Galen has matured, he still retains some of his naivety. The other characters' developments are great, too.

Thanks for an insightful review. The author did a good job in describing caromentis which is not a physical world but a world of the mind.

I've been seeing a lot of rave about Matthew Tysz's books. I like the premise of this book already--especially with your catchy review, Honest Reviewer. Hopefully, Galen will be successful.

I haven't even read the fourth book yet. This series was well executed. You'd know that it was done by a pro. That was fantastic, Honestreviewer
