We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies by Matthew Tysz is a fascinating combination of two stories. One part of the story talks about the political, social, and economic events of Voulhire. The other part of the story is about Galen Bray. Galen is a youngster from the war-torn Lands of the Princes to Magnum Caelum in response to his great uncle’s request. He is the protagonist in the story and intents to carry on his uncle’s smithing business far away from the gores of war, which have been part of his life for two decades. In the interim, there are forces within Vouhire that threaten her peace and prosperity that has existed for eighteen centuries. Can Voulhire deliver the peace and happiness that Galen seeks? Or will he live to see the kingdom he has grown fond of deteriorating to the warpath of his homeland?
We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies is the premiere novel of We are Voulhire series. The story enlightens the reader about the social-economic state of Voulhire and power-hungry men in Voulhire, who employed their powerful magic to pursue their selfish interests. The role of religious leaders has also been highlighted and explained concerning Voulhire. In my opinion, this is a non-religious book, although it mentions some religious beliefs and teachings.
There was nothing to dislike in the novel. The book was well-edited; I did not encounter any grammatical or typographical errors. Moreover, the English used by the author was simple to read and understand much to my amusement. The book was also non-discriminatory when it comes to religion, hence making it suitable for reading by all interested readers devoid of religious beliefs and practices. Furthermore, the book has no sexual content that makes it comfortable for readers who have problems reading books with sexual content. However, I must warn readers that the book contains profane words.
I liked the creativity behind the imaginative ability of the author. He choreographically created events that took place at Hillport. As much as this is pure fiction work, the clearly described events and how they expound the geography of various towns and cities featured in the story made the story sound real and thrilling. I was deeply engrossed in the book as I flipped one page to another for the last two days because the book was so engaging and flawless. I give due credit to Matthew Tysz for this masterpiece of work done.
I award this book 4 out of 4 stars. It is enthralling and adventurous to read. I recommend the book to lover of science fiction novels or anyone else who appreciates books with ancient taste. Reading this book will help you develop imaginative ability much to your advantage.
