I wish I could rate these books 5 stars. The story warranted that rating. The characters were richly developed and memorable . After reading the omnibus collection of the first group of Frostborn novels, I would love to continue the Frostborn journey, but dread of plowing through the pitfalls of poor editing deters me. At some points, every page had one or more issues. Wrong word usage and reoccurrences of the same phrasing being repeated two or three times within a page or so were so irritating that I found myself highlighting all of the errors. That course of action should have been taken by early readers and heeded by the author prior to release. No, spell check is not enough! This author should re-edit and release a better product of his labors.

Initially, I really liked the concept and the main character. But the story gets old pretty quickly as the author puts the characters into the same type of story over and over. It doesn't take long to get bored after that.

Very interesting world building. But the 'plot' of the book is a D&D campaign and the Characters straight out of that campaign. It's entertaining, but the story moves from one combat scene to another - over and over and the story itself moves at a snails pace. I got to where I had to skip over the combat, and that's the greatest percentage of the book. I liked the main character a great deal in the beginning, but if I had to hear one more time about how he wanted to die I might have enjoyed watching him. Way too whiny for me.

They are good books, I enjoyed them, but I read 3 books and felt like the story never did advanced, or it advances really slowly, so slow that I am considering if I want to read the next books, skip some of them or not read them at all.
Also there are some parts of the story that are not told, as it would be a plot twist but aren't really, I found that innecesary and at times tedious not knowing what they were talking about.

Enjoyed these characters very much. I had to start this two or three times to be in the mood, but once I got started, I had a hard time putting these down.
My only regret is that there are small typos throughout.
A knight goes on a quest and succeeds.
The same knight, years later, has been disgraced and is wandering the wilderness. Despite many detours and picking up a strange and varied cast of characters along the way, at the end of this omnibus, the knight is approaching a place wherein he might find some answers.
A good, solid, engrossing read. I recommend it highly as a distraction, in my case from a broken foot.

I had never heard of this auhor before, and i noticed this omnibus by chance. At less than a dollar in price, it seemed like a safe bet to buy.

I have to say that these books turned out to be more enjoyable than a lot of higher priced books I've bought.

The writing is straightforward, and the story constantly progresses, even though the series takes an episodic outlook so far. Much like a tv series, the characters have a series of adventures per book as they slowly move toward their overarching goal. It paces pretty well between a handful of viewpoints and balances suspense with pacing. If you hate keeping track of a dozen-plus viewpoints and hate seeing individual character plots forgotten, you will find this series to be refreshing. The characters all grow over time, and if they seem to overthink things occasionally it also helps you understand the changes they experience. A character I initially found to be tedious eventually became hilarious and actually witty.

Some final points:
expect Tolkien-style dialogue. The characters are understandable but don't talk modern.

A number of them are religious, and members of the medieval Christian church (not a problem at all for me, but if it is for you then fair warning).

The writing is occasionally unclear in physical descriptions. Sometimes its not 100% clear who's doing what or what things look like. It's not always a problem and it gets less noticeable in the later books, but it's the one real critique I've noticed.
But all in all, a fun read and a great bargain for the price!

Entertaining read with compelling, well developed characters and a lot of dramatic tension. The action is well told. The fantasy setting is clearly inspired by author's roleplaying sessions but it has several unique characteristics not found in traditional D&D worlds.

negatives:
Unfortunately the text is sometimes riddled with errors and typos.

Couldn't get through the sample so I don't see how I would get through 4 books. It starts off okay but predictable and cardboard cutout of standard fantasy genre. I kept on getting stuck on the intricate and far out names which reminded me too much of TLOTR by Tolkien. He did it first and it seems all fantasy writers feel the need to do likewise. It worked for him but definitely not here.
Read the sample for yourself because that's why it's there; maybe you'll like this. I don't

There are a lot of typo's in this book and it is religious in nature. It is an allegory and I wouldn't have bothered buying it if someone would have mentioned that fact. The book is spoiled by all the bible and religious references. Other than that it is ok and could have been a great set of books.

I really like this series. The only thing that is annoying is when the author repeats certains phrases about the story too many times. Like by the forth book I just felt like certain things didn't need to be repeated but other than that good story

Good set of stories...not too simplistic and not too Dickensian in the complexity of the characters. I do wish there were occasionally more upbeat happenings in the story line....so much constant doom.
