    One thought on “Philomena”

    1. A Thrilling Adventure for the Young at HeartIf you crossed a modern version of Sabatini's brilliant swashbuckling adventures: Scaramouche or Captain Blood, with the epic fantasy of someone like Brandon Sanderson, you would have Mark R. Guiney's writing in Philomena.This is a cinematic, swashbuckling, fantasy adventure tale that is as good as many of the modern classics - such as LoTR, WoT and HP - with flying ships, man-eating animals, a self-warring dynasty, a vile villain, vibrant characters a [...]

    2. What a fabulous first novel. Philomena is filled with action and adventure and is truly an exhilarating ride. At times the fast pace seemed rushed and left me longing to learn more about the characters. However, it builds to a very satisfying ending. Weak beginnings and disappointing endings can ruin a book regardless of how good the in between is. Mark Guiney's exciting ending lived up to its build up. Well done Mr. Guiney.

    3. [Disclaimer: I have no idea how I got a copy of this book. I may have gotten it from the author and completely forgotten, because I didn't win it in a giveaway, but in all honesty I have no clue. So in the event the author sent it to me for a review, here's a disclaimer that I didn't pay for this book, but my opinion is my own.]For a first novel this was mostly enjoyable. There were the obvious first-novel problems with plot, pacing, details, etc. I noticed a lot of typos in the PDF, although th [...]

    4. I received this book through the First-reads giveaway. Wow. What a book. This is a well thought out and gripping adventure novel. While there were a few things in the structure of the novel itself which were a little common to this type of book, the story itself really drew you in and made you root for the crew of the Philomena. The ending was really nice where Basil never ever went back on his beliefs. Human lives were always very important to him. While he wouldn't put up a fuss at the idea o [...]

    5. Philomena is a story quite unlike any other. At times it’s a classic adventure story, at others a brilliantly realised fantasy. It can enthral young readers with its buoyant fun, and still entice adults with its depth and themes. It’s like The Lord of the Ringsby J.R.R. Tolkien, but more innocent; similar to Ready Player Oneby Ernest Cline, but way more Catholic; almost a Pirates of the Caribbean in book-form, but more hopeful and less wet!Read more: catholicfiction/book-revie

    6. (It took me a while to get to this book; blame my huge Kindle library.)At first it seems a pretty straightforward adventure tale, yet there's much more to it. The details are just enough to keep the pace up, but rich enough to make me want to know more about Cor Nova. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I can has sequel?

    7. Very good adventure story. I really liked the characters; especially Forthright Stanton, Cyprian Fields, Veroninca, and Basil.

    8. Very good twist on the fantasy genre. It was an engaging read, and the action kept the plot moving right along. Definitely a worthwhile read!
