    1 thought on “White Mountain

    1. A magical world, as rich as a Tolkien novel, an intrepid band of brave souls as they battle against ultimate evil. Sounds heavy but this one was almost as much fun as a Harry Potter book!

    2. I understand this book has been updated, re editing and republished from its original launch, this time by Grimbold Publishing/Kristell Ink. I have been working through some of their books in their catalogue and find them to be fascinating reads, some exceptional stories. This book White Mountain continues this standard and surpassed my expectations.I have found it enthralling, even believable, here the main characters for good, wizard, Mr. Marval Agyck, his lifelong friend the green dragon with [...]

    3. White Mountain chronicles the journey of an aged wizard and his entourage as they seek to destroy a powerful enemy. The wizard, Mr. Agyk, brings with him a loyal dragon named Gralen and Wendya, a young witch.The characters in this book were well-formed and likable. Mr. Agyk’s dilemma is the catalyst for story, so we are introduced to him first. He’s a mix between Gandalf and Dumbledore, a wise, kindly old man most readers will enjoy and root for. Gralen, the loyal but sometimes impulsive dra [...]

    4. White Mountain Review.White Mountain, by Sophie E. Tallis is a traditional fantasy story about the fight between good and evil. It is a story suitable for the young and the more seasoned.The start and middle of this story takes the reader on an interesting journey to a number of magical places. The world building is reminiscent of Tolkien with the detail of names, places and history, but written in and easy to read and simple style. This is not an easy thing, so well done Ellis.The characters ar [...]

    5. A dying world hidden from our own. An ancient people conquered by human progress. A ruthless changeling bent on revenge and power…and a sorcerer and wyvern determined to stop him.“An epic fantasy onion - multi-layered and prone to cause tears!”A new epic fantasy adventure for the 21st century, full of dark magic, murder, intrigue, love, loss and blistering action set against our modern world.With a rich interwoven mythological history, dragons, mages, wargols, fire wolves, a changeling, an [...]

    6. After a long stretch of reviewing seminal fantasy works it was quite refreshing to read something fresh and newly released, and it was with a certain enthusiasm that I tackled White Mountain by Sophie Tallis.White Mountain is the first book in the Darkling Chronicles and follows the adventures of a sorcerer, Marval Agyk, the Green Wizard and his companion, the dragon, Gralen. Mr. Agyk is drawn to a distress call from an old wizarding friend in the hidden city of Issatun. When he arrives things a [...]

    7. What do you do when your friends seem to be disappearing? When the most powerful Wizards and Witches seems to be just not there anymore?As this begins to happen the last great Wizard sets out to find out what is happening. And from here begins the last fight with the one great changling who could bring the whole world to its knees. As the powers from the magic community are literally sucked out by the changling are they too late to save the world or is there one last roll of the dice to come?If [...]

    8. White Mountain is a great new traditional High Fantasy, and ticks all the boxes for lovers of the genre. There’s a flawed and believable hero, a suitably evil enemy, action adventure, pathos, excitement and a dragon. Ms Tallis isn’t scared to kill off characters, even if they have garnered the reader’s sympathy. She writes with a skill and emotional depth that draw the reader into the story from the very start. Her worldbuilding is impeccable and believable, her characters finely drawn and [...]

    9. This novel, the first in a projected series, is set both in our world and alongside it, in the spaces between things, in the lost forests and hidden mountain caverns of an otherworld that’s almost close enough to touch. Three friends, Marvalla Agyk, his dragon companion Gralen, and the young witch Wendya, are drawn into a quest to defeat an evil changeling wizard whose dark sorcery threatens both the supernatural world and the human one. It is predicted that one of them will not survive the en [...]

    10. This is a charming and whimsical journey full of sneaky jokes and ridiculous characters. I love it.I went into White Mountain expecting something every different. I was anticipating a grim-dark tale of demons and curses. While there certainly are demons and curses, the grimness is downplayed in favor of a tone that puts everything in a much more unexpected light.The names are a riot, I have to say. Like I said, I wasn't looking for humour when I went into the book, but as soon as I realized that [...]

    11. Review based on ARC.In the end, it fell at three.While I read this book, my feelings toward it changed often and dramatically. I felt that the beginning warranted closer to four stars, portions of the middle were great, portions were good, and portions were frustrating. And the end redeemed itself a little.This book falls squarely in the "fantasy" camp. Three friends a/k/a companions find themselves on a Lord of the Rings -esque trek across a large version of our world (or else the dragon flies [...]

    12. Follow three friends; Marval, a wise old wizard, Gralen one of the last dragons alive and Wendya a young witch as they travel across the world from one magical kingdom to another meeting new friends and gaining alliances against a dark force called Morreck. Marval is alone the first time he encounters Morreck and barely gets away with his life. He needs to recover and then takes Gralen to check on their friend Wendya. She is fine but insists on coming along to help her friend and the man she thi [...]

    14. I loaded this book onto my Kindle after meeting Sophie at Bristolcon last year. But what with one thing and another, I hadn't managed to get around to reading itAmongst our modern world lies another, an archaic and hidden world of tradition, sorcery and magic. As dark demons awaken from our past, the last remaining wizards are being hunted and murdered by a changeling of terrifying strength. Attacked and drained of most of his powers, a dying sorcerer must race against time to save himself, and [...]

    15. Note: please keep in mind that I am the managing editor for this bookWhen I first got this submission, I thought "hmm sounds interesting." I liked the way the story unfolded, the detail on characters, enticing plotline Then I started reading the whole manuscript, couldn't put it down for one second, had full-body chills (and still do just by THINKING about the story), tears streaming down my face, felt anger and frustration for the characters, got to the last line and thought "oh my God, I NEED [...]

    16. I don't usually read fantasy books but was drawn in to this one from the first page by well-developed, interesting characters and dramatic settings described in vivid, painterly detail. It's a book that really hits the ground running.The feeling of being immediately immersed in a three-dimensional, multi-sensory fantasy world caught me by surprise, given the stark but distinctive monochrome front cover. It also felt as if there was a strong back-story, as if the tale had been maturing in the aut [...]

    17. I have to say I really really loved this book, not just because it has a wonderful brave dragon in it and some amazing illustrations, but also because the story is gripping and exciting.The story follows two friends Mr Agyk a wise old wizard and Gralen a large portly green dragon. They receive a message from a wizard friend of Mr. Agyk who appears to be in trouble and set out to help him. This is the start of an adventure that tests them to the limit and takes them to many far off corners of the [...]

    18. A wonderful read - dragons, shapeshifters, monsters, more dragons, wolves and wizards and dwarves and heroes! The story jumps straight in and Mr Agyk's soon travelling with Gralen (who is possibly my favourite character), and the pace doesn't slow all the way to the twist at the end! I did find the names and places hard to follow on the first read, but considering the book's well worth a second (and third) read, it wasn't a problem at all. The drawings scattered through the text are a really nic [...]

    19. I only read to around page one hundred. The world building was interesting and I didn't dislike any of the characters, but I had a hard time staying interested. I wasn't able to connect with any of the characters, but that could be because I'm the wrong audience (there didn't seem to be written for YA). I got the feeling that the dragon was supposed to funny, but I didn't find him such.I also felt that it was too dramatic. The book was riddled with lines such as "a strange and deep foreboding fe [...]
