We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies by Matthew Tysz is an epic story of survival, politics, and conspiracy. The narration takes place in Voulhire, a vast and prosperous kingdom. A kingdom that promises peace and prosperity, but having aplenty secrets hidden within the walls of its majestic cities.

The protagonist, Galen Bray, escapes his war-torn homeland and immigrates to Magnum Caelum, a non-significant town of Voulhire. He intends to carry on his great uncle’s smithing business miles away from the gores of war, which have been a part of his life for two decades. But Voulhire is not without problems, and the rifts, which are oblivious to most of its citizens, continue to grow. Can Voulhire deliver the happy ending that Galen seeks? Will skirmishes be a fading memory to him, or will he live to see the kingdom he has grown to love take the destructive path of his homeland?

This novel, which premiers the We are Voulhire series, is pure perfection. Matthew Tysz did a superb job in creating this world, where the physical and magical realms meet. He simply describes the scenes and settings, all while invoking in the reader a vivid picture of the characters’ surroundings. Besides, the hilarity of the description and dialogues is entrancing; it compelled me to flip page after page while arousing a smile or laughter. One thing I loved most is how the author depicts the bad guys, who hide their dastardly traits in everyone’s sight, their motives being known only after the fact.

Being the first of nine books in the series, We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies focuses on introducing the characters and familiarising the reader with Voulhire, hence setting the foundation for the rest of the books in this captivating series.

There was nothing to dislike in We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies. The book is devoid of grammatical and typographical errors. Also, the English used is easy to understand. Moreover, while the book is animistic, it does not discriminate against any religion, which makes it suitable for everyone. Plus, the book contains zero erotic content. However, there is foul language, albeit in frivolous proportions.

Given the reasons mentioned above, I am inclined to give We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies by Matthew Tysz four out of four stars. I recommend this enthralling novel to lovers of fantasy stories or anyone who appreciates a tale from ancient times. All in all, We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies is suitable for persons of all ages, so long as reading and understanding English is a strong suit.
