Matthew Tysz's, We are Voulhire: A New Arrival under Great Skies, is a novel based in the fantasy country of Voulhire. The king, upon seeing his son's turning on each other in attempts to win the throne, thought his sons were plotting to overthrow him, and therefore sent them away. Each son was sent to an island with riches enough to keep the son comfortable. But soon civil war breaks out across Voulhire, and one of the four sons, Galen, returns to his home to change everything.

The world-building in this book was amazing. Seeing how short the book is, Tysz did a great job of explaining the world and Voulhire itself. The book had just the right amount of suspense to make it impossible to put down. Tysz has a very significant writing style, very different from anything I've read before, but it was quite dignified and I liked it a lot.

4 out of 4 stars is my rating for the novel. I found no errors to note on, and with the book being so short it was very well edited. I very much enjoyed the magic system in Voulhire, although I wish we got to see more of it. I also wish the book was a bit longer, it seemed a bit cramped, and I think it could have had more detail.

Giving this book less than four stars seems impossible. Sure, some parts could be improved, but there were just so many elements to the book that was so beautifully put together that I can't degrade it to less than it is.

Fans of fantasy and sci-fi will love this book, it has great magic and wonderful world-building. Readers who are more into romance and smut, look elsewhere. This book doesn't waste time on cheesy love stories.

Overall, great read, and ready to read the next installment!
