    1. I have some mixed feelings about this book. The story was good, but I felt that the execution could have been done a little differently. I read a lot of YA, and this definitely felt very young to me. My main issues are with the characters. There were so many females in the story, which isn't a bad thing in itself. They all felt very flat, and I found myself confused as to who was who several times. Our main character was such a flirt! I didn't like his interactions with all the girls. I'm not up [...]

    2. Good book with a good plot. I thought the book was well paced and had many great characters. Many have commented on the head character and how he ends up in bed with two different women in the story. I just want to make this clear; I don't think it ruins the book or that it stains the head character in any way. If you like charming and popular head characters, this one should match the description. He's described as handsome and charming many times throughout the book, but when you add his persp [...]

    3. Final word on this one would have to be "meh".Lets get to the good thing first: After two weeks of not touching any book at all, it got me back into reading and I could finnish it in one afternoon straight. It was entertaining enough to keep me reading, so it's by all means not a terrible book.However.Few cases in point about what I really didn't like:Know your craft. Persepctive. The book features PoV-characters, but sometimes in the middle of scenes, I found myself jumping heads, suddenly know [...]

    4. The first great war of Ovira is over, and the most hated king in centuries is dead, but his nephew still lives. However, Basen had nothing to do with the destructive war his uncle started. In fact it was his uncle who exiled him and his father to the territory of their enemies, where Basen's dreams of becoming a legendary mage now fade, as he must work all day just to eat. His only chance at regaining some semblance of the life he thought he would lead is to join an elite school that trains, hou [...]

    5. First this book was given to me for free in exchange for a review.The characters in this book are young; but that is in fact how most people in armies are. They seem to be very mature at times and at times not so much.The story line was not deep but did a good job of displaying the issues that were to be handled by the characters. Many of the obstacles were overcome far too easy for the environment but it did keep the story from getting bogged down in details.I thought this book was going to be [...]

    6. 3.25 starsThis one surprised me. I didn't expect much because I haven't had piles of luck with high fantasy through kindle unlimited. I didn't even think I'd be likely to read past the 50 page mark when I downloaded it to check it out. But the characters were interesting and the plot pulled me along. As fantasy goes this is pretty scant on worldbuilding, but the characters and plot move it along. The drawback is that the author brags about releasing 6 books a year. What he's actually releasing i [...]

    7. I was a little unsure about this book because I had never heard of the series or the author before and I didn't think it would be any good, but I was completely wrong. When I started to listen I couldn't stop and when I did stop I tried to find time to listen to it again. This book is full of brilliantly written characters and an absorbing storyline, that once you start you don't want to stop. There is humour, action, tension and magic. If you love your fantasy reads to have all these then this [...]

    8. I liked the book and the story it tells but it had it downsides that stops me from giving it more stars.The main issue I had was with the POV's in this book. One moment you are reading the books form one characters POV and then suddenly there is a change in the perspective without any indication there has been a change leaving you wondering "what just happened why is the character suddenly thinking like this?" And just when you get accustomed to the change there will be suddenly another switch.N [...]

    9. I am now on the second book in the series and have found it to be entertaining. It reads a bit like it is targeting a younger audience (early teen), so I have to keep reminding myself that the characters are a bit older than that. The magic system is innovative, and the story deviates nicely from the cookie cutter format -- it does not shock with sudden twists, but it flows well.

    10. Solid fantasy novel, and very quickly paced-you won't find any dawdling over meaningless details except how attracted all the characters seem to be to one another. They could all stand a little more development, but overall, an excellent, quick read for anyone interested in an adventure story.

    11. The setting of this book is strong and intriguing, and the characters are very interesting. Unfortunately the book is fairly short, but I'm hoping for more.

    12. This was good enough to keepp me reading, and I will pick up the next book in the series. i'm not racing to pick it up though.

    13. WowGreat book. Did not see the ending coming at all. Looking forward to book two. I would recommend this book to everyone

    14. Basen’s uncle was King of a country called Cairo. He was also the bad guy who lost a war to the neighboring kingdom. Basen and his father were banished before the end of hostilities and started new lives on the bottom rung of society in a work camp. His only chance is to get accepted into the academy where Warriors, Psychics, Chemists, and Mages train for arm life. Narro has created a system of magic that is unique to me in my wanderings through the realms of fantasy. Well where have I been an [...]

    15. Excellent Tale of Mages, Warriors, and Rival KingsNot knowing of previous series written by B.T. Narro, I had read his book Awaken before reading The Kin of Kings, and I almost didn't read the first book of this series, because I just couldn't get interested in Awaken. However, when I saw how many books he had already written and the positive reviews he had, I decided to give him another chance, and I'm glad I did. I've always enjoyed stories of young people just coming of age, then add magic, s [...]

    16. When I first started reading Kin of Kings I was immediately drawn in to the word that B.T. created. It was clear the amount of effort that went in to drafting a world in which the readers could relate. As more characters got introduced, I started to lose track as assumptions were made that we should know the stories being discussed and the relationships between these new characters. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me engaged through this story, and at the end I was left wanting mor [...]

    17. My review is based on the Audiobook I really liked this story and the twist at the end is so amazing that I can't wait to get the next book to see where is it takes me. I found the characters to be in depth and likable as well as relatable. Brad C. Wilcox does a great narration. He is easy to follow and his characters are easily distinguishable. Excited for more from this Auhor & narrator!!! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    18. I sat here for several minutes trying to think how I felt about this book. The characters were likable enough. The plot had a steady flow. It kept me reading, until 230 in the morning when I finished the book. This installment felt like it is a setup for something bigger to come. I will keep reading. Don't expect to be wowed by this book but expect a light, easy entertaining read.

    19. Great startA new author for me to and I must say that I like it and the story lines and characters. I have just brought the bundle of five books as I read the first on prime for free.

    20. I really enjoyed this story of students, mages and warriors. The characters are interesting and different. The plot develops quickly as the suspense builds. As the list of suspects grow, I started to doubt my choice but was delighted when I was correct. I'll definitely be reading book 2.

    21. Great BookAn interesting twist on magic and war, this story grabs hold and doesn’t let go. Defiantly a good read, can’t wait for the second book

    22. This book was fantastic. I was thoroughly surprised. I loved the characters. And the development they went though. I am totally reading the next few books.

    23. Exceptional I enjoyed this first installment immensely: especially the character development. I am one to the second installment with much anticipation.

    24. It was enjoyable I liked this book and I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Some twists and turns that I found rather predictable but good none the less.

    25. Not sureThis had a lot of promise, I liked the main character but the other characters were not interesting to me. I don't think I will continue the series because the next book focuses more on these lack luster characters.
