Book One, The Taesian Chronicles
Kindle format, 300 pages (estimate) [My books are also available at Amazon, but do you really want to give Jeff Bezos more money than he already has?]

I was waffling on how many stars to rate this work. Since this was Mr. Williamson’s first publication I decided to round it up to a 5 because I think his book is a great read and rounding down meant taking away a well deserved extra 1/2 a star which seemed wrong. His characters felt true to themselves and their environment. Their interactions were complex but fresh and not contrived. Mechanically it is a good story but it was the character development that made this first book such a great read. Most writers do not have Mr. Williamson’s dexterity at crafting such realistic characters. I do not think this is the end for Ohlen and his friends. I look forward to seeing where Mr. Williamson takes this group next – especially my favorite character the one we last checked in on before the story closed – talk about a delightfully complex character construct.

I enjoyed taking this journey with Ohlen and his friends. The balance between action and character development was perfect and the story was easy to follow. That can’t always be said of a book in this genre and as a reader, I appreciate it. I’m happy to hear the author has begun the sequel, and I’m anxious to find out what’s next for our hero.

Ohlen’s Arrow is a fast paced story with great characters. This is not the genre that I usually read, so I was pleased at how well the story flowed and kept my attention. I look forward to reading about Ohlen and friends’ next adventure.

I really enjoyed Steven Williamson’s first novel, Ohlen’s Arrow. Ohlen’s world was populated with a variety of beings who provided tension in the plot and some interesting characters. The story moved along well and kept this reader’s interest. Although there were certainly “good guys” and “bad guys” there were some surprises and enough depth of character to to keep me turning the pages. Try it, I think you will like it. I’m waiting for the next novel.
