David Clement-Davies Ï 7 DOWNLOADOppy series and Watership down were some of my favourites and I wish I had heard or herd if I want to continue with my bad deer puns this book sooner because I just know I would have loved it in middle or high school Everything about this story was believable and epic Such a huge story with a huge array of characters is usually difficult for me to follow since I take longer to read such small "printed books but I had a difficult time putting this book "books but I had a difficult time putting this book I was surprised with myself it only took a few days to finish I strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves animal fiction It takes its readers seriously without being too dull there is always something happening Also
I D LIKE TO POINT OUT THIS IS THEd like to point out this is the time in a long time I have found a book I absolutely love that the author didn t kill off my favourite character Though my second favourite Poor Peppa met a less fortunate end I am glad to see that Bankfoot came out all right in the end Overall this book is great It was pure delicious adventure that left me wanting As a little fawn Rannoch is born with book is great It was pure delicious adventure that left me wanting As a little fawn Rannoch is born with oak leaf mark on his forehead that signals the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy When his father is murdered on the very night of his birth Rannoch must be hidden and kept safe from the eyes of the tyrant deer lord Drail As Drail gets closer to discovering Rannoch s true identity Rannoch and his friends must flee to the North propelling them on an epic journey towards freedom and healing for all the deer in ScotlandIt took me awhile to get into the flow of the story There are far too many characters some of them with similar names making it difficult to remember them all and the writing spends way too much time explaining boring details ad nauseum But once the story began to move I enjoyed the adventure the characters and the world building of the deer herds and their culture But then I was disappointed in the ending It needed flair and it didn t deliver uite the epic conclusion I was look This book is Watership Down with deer Seriously It s the same story but with deer We have the strange deer who are be raised by men stories of the deer god the evil authoritarian deer the seer deer and pretty much every detail word for word of Watership Down except each word rabbit is replaced with deer It even ends with the exact same scene I can t believe Richard Adams actually gave this book a positive review He must have forgotten his own story or been too flatteredinnocent to notice how closely a plagiarism the book really is. L lead all the deer to freedom Filled with passion and a darkness that gradually through Rannoch's courage in the face of adversity lifts to reveal an overwhelming feeling of light Fire Bringer is a tremendous spirited story that takes the reader deep into the hearts and minds of its characters as they fight for their right to live in pea. One thing I really really REALLY don t like Clement Davies writing You might even come to say that I despise it with a fiery passion But it seems like no matter what I do I keep being drawn to his books First The Sight Which I Really Despised which I really despised The Telling Pool which was so boring that I seriously felt myself losing brain cells WHY did I keep reading h I should change my category of children s literature to oung adult literature but I digress My nephew recommended this book with rave reviews and he was dead on with that As soon as he finished this book he read it a second time which is uite a commitment in a rather long book with much smaller print than most Caveman Alien's Ransom: A SciFi BBW/Alien Fated Mates Romance (Caveman Aliens Book 1) young adult novels This book is reviewed as being a Watership Down but with rabbits and that seems like uite the fair assessment It is set in Scotland about 400ears ago maybe and is about a herd of red deer The protagonist Rannoch seems to be the chosen one fulfilling a deer prophecy and he is a wonderful and conflicted hero seeking to figure out what he is meant to do in this world as he flees for his life from his herd that is being destroyed and changed from within The book grapples with uestions of faith and if there is a God or if religious stories and myths are only true and real in the way that all stories are real Unlike many Edge of Chaos Sons of Chaos MC young adult books it doesn t deliver a clearcut answer to the reader about this and instead just trusts the reader to make up their own mind about the world and to dwell in what is unknowable But it is not all heady stuff but rather is mostly just a wonderfully action packed adventure story filled with friends taking care of one another Strongly recommend this to anyoung readers ages 10 or up or any adults who like kids literature I didn t realize until this rereading that the plot of this story is lifted almost wholesale from Watership Down Obviously there are some adjustments for species as rabbits and deer don t behave in precisely the same way but the amount of overlap on major plot points is large enough that I m surprised I didn t notice it soonerThat said I don t think this is a bad adaptation In fact I think it s very well done This is still one of my favorite books and I will fall back to reread this one in futureExtra points for talking animals that still behave mostly like animals You
Ll Like This Booklike this book ou liked the Warriors Seekers or Survivors series This book tries to be a Watership Down with deer The problem is it is too much of a Watership Down with deer It doesn. Young buck Rannoch was born on the night his father was murdered and into a herd of deer where hunger for power has gradually whittled away at all that is true and good He knows he must escape to survive Chased by stags with their fearsome antlers sharpened for the kill he begins a treacherous journey into the unknown and ahead of him lie. .
I barely made it through the book The author does not understand the storytelling concept of don t tell me show me Instead of that he gives ou I will show The Summer I Wasn't Me you and THEN also tellou in case Khaiye Aur Vajan Ghataiye you missed it the first time And while I m tellingou I m going to explain the significance just in case Tales from a Pilots Logbook you weren t paying attention to the story or are too dumb to follow along It was arduous trying to make it through and completely distracted from the story which wasn t a strong narrative to begin with The characters were very one dimensional and the story predictable I m pretty sure this is a children s book A Watership Down for DeerIt took me about two pages to get into this book To be honest I know almost nothing about deer and I was a bit lost at first by the descriptions of their bez tines and trez tines but that turned out to be a very small hindrance indeed The writing is superb and I found myself freuently thinking back to the story during the day between readings and wondering what would happen to the characters and whether or not they would be OK without meThe parallels to the nativity story in the beginning of the book are almost unnerving They seemed too blatant to be unintentional so I watched closely throughout the book to see what the author intended to do with them but nothing ever came of them as far as I could see Perhaps doing nothing was exactly what the author intended I don t know On the whole this was a book I enjoyed reading very much for the experience it brought me on but I don t think it left an indelible mark on my life But of course a week is usually a bit early to know that I ve discovered that what most people think when they look at this book is It s an epic fantasy about deer Well unlessou re some kind of deer lover it s got to be boring rightWrongIn his debut novel Clement Davies spins a world of incredible realistic fantasy Much as he did later in The S Oh dear Mild Spoilers ahead Normally when selecting a book there are a few key factor used into deciding wether I want to bother picking it up or not I m very lucky I didn t physically see this book in a store or I don t think I would have bothered with it at all I know it s rather shallow
of me but books with such small font are intimidating to me since I am usually suchme but books with such small font are intimidating to me since I am usually such casual reader I usually get headaches from reading such long books and this one is a whopper at nearly 500 pages I have to say though I am very grateful I decided to pick this one up As a kid I loved anthropomorphic fiction The S a shocking and formidable search for truth and goodwill in the shadow of the Great Mountain One day he will have to return to his home and face his destiny among the deer to fulfill the prophecy that has persistently given them hope that one day a fawn will be born with the mark of an oak leaf on his forehead and that fawn's courage wil.
