    This short fantasy novella is obviously the beginning of a longer story Its protagonist Will is a ten year old boy the younger son of Lord Lesterall Caught in the deadly conflict between humans and the monstrous Unborn Will strives to understand what is going on and make the right choices while his world is crumbling around him A pawn in a vicious power struggle he is frightened and confused and searching for a place without blood or death a place suitable for a child he is By the end of the story he still hasn’t found it He keeps on going The narrative is multilayered intertwining the minute details of Will’s everyday existence with the complex mythology and history of his medieval world Poetic and lyrical despite the terrible events in Will’s life the story kept me reading and hoping that in the end Will finds what he is looking for I felt for him I wanted to hug him and kiss away his pain I wanted him to succeed in his uest I hope the writer will grant my wish in the next book

    Hey there epic fantasy fans All too often the pages we read are filled with beauty and virtue tainted by an enemy that expects to destroy all that is good The world of man is made out to be magical Uniue races are or may become united The fall of the enemy was foretold by an ancient prophecy A hero is coming to save us allThe Pact a high fantasy novella by Graeme Brown tells a tale of angelic creatures Beautiful goblins frolic in the fields; exotic ogres paint the daytime grasses with wondrous colors; and the unborn bask in the sun radiant and stunning But when the sun falls below the horizon these creatures become fiends of the night terrorizing men and women foolish enough to be in the vicinityThe book begins with a young boy of ten All humans—including his family—have been forced into small areas that they inhabit and protect with their lives Towns are spread to unfathable distances thinning any human resistance yet further and children grow up behind walls Aside from the walls the only thing keeping people safe is a flimsy 200 year old pact between humans and monsters It's a pact that people are beginning to suspect the enemy would like to break soon given the creatures' recent actionsDuring the king's festivities one night the king's knights march in wishing to break this pact and wage war on the enemy So do other knights from afar But one of the great wartime knights feared by all brings in evidence that the pact has already been broken The time to wage war is upon us The story opens up following the children as they escape death and learn a little something about the outside world they have been protected from for so long Will they become heroes or won't they? Either way they can't stay hidden from the dark and evil forces of the unborn foreverThis short novella was uniue and fun It's nice to follow fleeing children for a change in an epic fantasy rather than a seasoned hero or even an unlikely hero It really changes things up So The Pact was a good story and definitely worth a read Check it out and tell me what you think downstairs A review

    An ancient pact agreed between the ancestor's of the Lesterall's and the dark creatures from cautionary tales told to children has kept the Lesterall lands and people safe for centuries Whilst the Lestrall's and there friends gather to celebrate the anniversary of the Pact goblins and creatures from nightmares gather outside their walls for the Pact is brokenThis is a short novella that starts with a brief interlude as the writer introduces the reader to Will Lesterall and his family before uickly spinning out a short intrigue and the imminent destruction of the fort they live in The novella is barely longer than a short story and although it spends some time early on to introduce the character of Will Lesterall the writer doesn't give himself enough time to explore the relationships between Will and his family Will Lesterall is a ten year old boy that doesn't like big family gatherings and rather hang out with his friend a sixteen year old stable hand We are told that Will has a bit of a crush on his nanny but as it transpires there is going on in Fort Lestrall than Will is aware of and his nanny has something to do with itThe writing isn't bad in fact the sentence structures and word play is very good Its just that there isn't much of a plot and what little there is isn't paced very well The end is dramatic and the twist is surprising but it could have done with being drawn out taking time to establish the various relationships the intrigues and a better build up to the breaking of the PactThis is already the second book this year that shows promise in the uality of the writing but is let down by inexperience in the broader skills of the craft of writing Hopefully Brown is just testing the waters and will furnish readers with a protracted adventure as there isn't much point to The Pact

    I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest reviewI was instantly drawn into this book as it sweeps the reader straight into the story Even so it gives enough description that you understand what is going on and it was easy to keep up with itMy biggest issue was how short it was I understood it was about 50 pages when I started it so I don't mean the length of it I mean I felt it was rushed Too much was done too uickly I didn't have time to find myself attached to any of the charactersEven without that the story itself was great I found myself wishing there was to it just so I could continue readingIt was a uick read and I did enjoy it I give it 45 platypireshttpwwwplatypirecom3post2014


  6. Cameron James Cameron James says:

    I found this short story novella by fellow Champagne Books author Graeme Brown to be a dense and dark read The tension begins right from the first sentence — “When you kill a man look him in the eye” — and escalates from there The setting? A dinner party The sense of doom? Permeates everythingThough it is a celebratory function the reader can tell that something is amiss that dark forces are gathering The opening line which is spoken by a character is only one part of the gathering darkness Brown manages to pull it off through the whole dinner seuence with how characters interact with how the celebration has a muted toneRead the rest of my review on my blog


  7. Rachel Rachel says:

    The Pact was a very short story only 48 pages It told the story of a 10 year old boy called Will and The Pact that protected his home for many years The problem was that the pact had been broken and it was time to fight mythical beasts like goblins dragons and the likes and save themselvesIt was uite an intense storyline which flowed really well although some of it was pretty gruesomeIt is a great book to read in your lunch hour and it stuck in my headI think this would have made a great longer story where it didn't seem so rushedIt has been left open for a second book and I would love to see what happens to Will


  8. Alex Schiffer Alex Schiffer says:

    I read this book in one sitting It was fast paced contained a lot of adventure and the characters were well developed The only problem was that it was over too soon I wanted to know about Will Lesteral and what becomes of him I look forward to reading the seuelDisclaimer I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review


  9. Audra Middleton Audra Middleton says:

    Lots of goodies for fantasy lovers in this story a medieval style world with a rich history plenty of mythical critters and intense battle scenes The story begins with a party and pretty much ends in Armageddon The Pact is a short read that definitely leaves you wanting I look forward to reading the rest of the saga
