Book Review: Through the Wildwood

Through the Wildwood (The Legend of Vanx Malic, #1)Through the Wildwood by M.R. Mathias
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Vanx is pretty sure he can escape his shackles, but there is the matter of the pretty girl to save also. He can tell their party is about to be ambushed, and he feels compelled to save her, as he is quite certain she was sent to purchase his freedom by her mother, who was fond of Vanx warming her bed. But can he save her from the poison she encountered on her escape? And what of the strange wizard’s pack and the unnatural attraction to it the ogres seem to display? Will he ever work his way out of the Wildwood?

In The Legend of Vanx Malic Mathias follows up his hugely successful Wardstone Trilogy with a new hero, the half Zythian Vanx Malic. This is a shorter tome than the three Wardstone books, but no less entertaining or engaging. The fast paced book doesn’t have a whole lot of time for character development, but the potential is certainly there and the story well done enough to keep the reader guessing and looking for more history. I hope that Mathias is able to keep the series going and continue the tie-ins to his previous trilogy, as I can see this particular fantasy realm being rather engrossing if he can. There was some minor grammar and editing needed but for the most part I thought it was really well done.
