Testament of Feats: Book of Judgement Book One by K.H. Jones – Review by Kerry Carr

Testament of Feats: Book of Judgment,Testament of Feats: Book of Judgment, by K.H. Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an amazing adventure/ fantasy story. I found it a little hard to get into at the beginning because of all the characters and the places and how each clan links to the next but i am very glad i stuck with it.

The book is filled with adventure, from sword fights, to spiritual Bards. Every clan has its own fighters and they all have a history which isnt always good.

One ranger sets out to change all that. To right the wrongs that have been commited by his ancestors and to save his clans way of life.
But there are more forces at work than the ones he can see and knows about.

This is a collection of love stories. There is something for everyone

One of my favourite stories is by Michele Sims called Poinsettias for Carly.

Carly moves back to her home town to help her aunty sort the rest of her mums home out so its ready for sale.

While she is in her family home a lot of memories both good and bad resurface and also an old flame reappears.

Mason was the love of Carly’s life but after an accident involving her brother Mason left Carly and moved away.

Is the romance between them still strong and can they both overcome the hurt and heartbreak of the past to create a new future finally together.
