I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review These comments are wholly my own I received this book in a group and would not have regularly chosen the sub genre but for a three hour book, I thought I would give it a try sub genre reference fantasy, horror, zombies This was an original take on a coming of age story The 16 year old protagonist is sure that the family profession would be the worst possible Given the vehemence, you know where the story will go, but you certainly don t know how it will get there The number of twists and turns in 3 hours was pretty impressive Think roller coaster Although this is the beginning of a series, this book could stand alone for the most part I was very happy to see that I don t mind foreshadowing for the next book, setting the scene, or an epilogue, but cliffhangers are beyond annoying The monsters were different enough that I could be tempted to overcome my aversion to zombies and continue the series My aversion is primarily due to the over abundance of zombie books stories out there and the number of zombies in each book Low numbers in this book. Thoughts on the Overall Book I love books with monsters and beasties in them, especially when they go the traditional rout as in, the monsters are actually monsters and not the love interests There s a sad lack of those kinds of books, especially in YA, so I was excited to find this one and to have the chance to read and review it Cover Yea or Nay Not my favorite cover ever, but it s not terribly either.Characters Errol was a likable protagonist Even though in the beginning of the book he didn t really want to be a Warden, he was never whiny or bratty about it either as some characters could be We don t get to see a lot of Tom, but what I did see of him I liked He s a sensible, caring older brother, who takes good care of Errol I also liked Gale, because like Errol, at first I was worried she would be a nuisance, but she was surprisingly smart and a good female lead The Romance There s no romance in this book, though there might possibly be a relationship between Errol and Gale in later books If there isn t though, I won t be disappointed, I like the friendship they have now just fine.Writing Style It s nothing spectacular, but it s not bad either, and very easily readable It s fast paced, and visual, and the action scenes are not messy or anything It s a good style of writing for a guy read The only problem I had was that I really wished the book had been longer For starters, it took a while for the reader to be introduced to the world of the book it s set in America, but something has happened to where there is no electricity and anything mechanical doesn t work, so people have to ride horses instead of driving cars etc And this is apparently why all the beasties who used to be confined to the Badlands are roaming around the populated areas I would have liked to see of an introduction to the setting, and some elaboration on it What was there was good and entertaining, but I found myself wishing the story was fleshed out , and had time spent on the quest and their search for Tom and eventual pursuit by the Wendigo The book could easily have been twice as long as it was The start was paced pretty good, but the last half seemed almost too rushed I wanted to see of what there was to offer As far as the beasties go though, I enjoyed that a lot, and the portrayal of the Wendigo was cool and pretty spot on to the legends as well This is only the second retelling of the Wendigo legend I have read in fiction the first being in the first Secret Journeys of Jack London book which is probably still my favorite of the two but I thought the author did a good job The whole idea of the book was, I thought, very original, kind of a cross between Ranger s Apprentice andGrimmwhich is perfectly fine by me I didn t even really mind the inclusion of magic in the story, though I didn t think it was totally necessary either as Errol and Tom seem pretty handy with weaponry as well.Accuracy Believability Not really applicable Problems What bothered me Apart from the problems mentioned above, I didn t have anything to complain about.Conclusion 3.75 stars in my actual rating I think this book leaves room for a bit of improvement as the series progresses, but I enjoyed reading this one, and look forward to the next installment It was great for a quick read and is the kind of book I would have definitely finished in one day if I wasn t reading it off the computer.Recommended Audience Guy read definitely 14 and up, anyone who likes stories about mythical creatures and those of legends would enjoy this I received a free copy of this

given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.This is a short novel that begins the Warden series A Warden is somebody who takes care of their local town and protects it from creatures, like the titular wendigo Errol, the apprentice to his brother who is the town Warden, is thrust into the role that he doesn t want after his brother goes missing Accompanied by a girl from the town, they set off to discover what happened to his brother.I liked the premise of this book I love the idea of there being Wardens And I thought that the interaction between the two main characters was pretty good But the book itself just didn t grab me. I received a free copy of this book from the author through Goodreads in return for an honest review Errol and his older brother Tom are Wardens, who patrol the Badlands keeping local people and their farms safe from the deadly creatures and monsters that live there, risking their lives on a daily basis When Tom goes missing, it is up to young Errol to find his brother, while being tracked by the deadly Wendigo which devours human flesh.Errol is the reluctant hero, forced to study monsters and train to be a Warden despite dreams of escaping to the City Always in Tom s shadow and getting things wrong, he now has to step up and take on a seemingly unbeatable monster on his own, while searching for Tom Errol is funny and likeable and is very easy to root for Gale is interesting and not the usual whiny female or uberbitch that appear too regularly in this genre The story is not over descriptive, focusing just on the important events and the various monsters that are introduced Don t expect massive depth to the characters as this is not a long book, but enough is done to get you interested in them as you follow the journey I liked reading about the different plants and monsters, and they were nicely used through the book as Errol battles the Wendigo.So what was the down side to the book Well, nothing really I would personally have liked the book to be a bit longer, maybe a bit detail about Errol s monster hunting sharing a campfire story or two with Gale, or a longer tension filled hunt but that is minor nitpicking really I think there could have been a bit about what happened directly after the debt was paid , I don t want to add spoilers but when you read it you ll probably know what I mean , but again it is a minor niggle This book is enjoyable and doesn t take long to devour and I will certainly be interested in reading about Errol s adventures.Recommended for YA readers, and adults looking for a fun YA read. The world is full of creatures that can kill you people rely on the Wardens to protect them Tom is a warden Errol, his younger brother, is a reluctant assistant Errol s opinion is that being a Warden both the most boring most dangerous job around When Tom leaves on a journey, Errol expects him back in a few days He puts off doing any Warden activities until he just can t hedge any His first solo job is against a Revenant, a murdered person who is seeking revenge.With the assistance of his neighbor, Gail, Tom decides to try to find his brother And, there the adventure begins Full of creatures that only want to kill them, magic ingenuity, Errol Gail encounter probably the scariest creature around A Wendigo Incredibly hard to kill with a hunger for humans that won t stop, will Errol be able to destroy the Wendigo And, will they find Tom An interesting story very well narrated I enjoyed the story, the characters and the narration I was provided the Audible version of this book by the narrator author publisher chose to review it. A copy of Warden was kindly sent to me by Kevin Hardman in exchange for an honest reviewIt always pleases me beyond belief when a book I receive for review turns out to be brilliant Warden is a fast paced, well written and thrilling novella, and I found myself unable to put it down The action really picked up a few chapters in and from that point on it was unrelenting action and tension The characters are fantastic I think Dorsey is my favourite Errol is a reluctant hero who, naturally, has to fill his older brother s shoes when he goes missing and I have to admit, I adored him I would have liked some of the characters to have been explored a bit deeply, though I suppose this could easily happen in sequels which I m pretty sure I ll be reading From start to finish I can find no faults with it, except that it wasn t long enough, hence the short review I really want to know what happens with Tom and Errol My only qualm with Warden is the cover, which is obviously vastly unimportant, as it does not do the story justice or convey the terrifying Wendigo in all its horrendous glory I m going to be having nightmares for weeks I just know it I thoroughly enjoyed reading Warden and am looking forward to see where Hardman goes from here. Wendigo Fever is a short novel that introduces the book series Wardens Wardens are monster hunters trained to deal with monsters and creatures roaming the world Intro novel does not go into detail on how these creatures came to the earth, or history of Wardens but focuses on Errol the younger brother to Tom, a Warden Errol has no interest in becoming a Warden When his older brother Tom goes missing, Errol is thrown into assuming the duties of his brother as well as investigating his disappearance This first book in the series is a short introduction to this world of Wardens and monsters Though short I felt this book did a great job with pacing and story The characters are likable yet flawed The story manages to simultaneously have its own mini story arc and setting up a larger story arc for later books, which left me feeling both satisfied with the story and wanting Mikael Nara did a wonderful job at narrating, much like he did with Sensation which I also reviewed distinctive and consistent characters, and good inflection that matches the tone of the story Looking through his other works I am looking forward to listening to Of Dice and Men The Story of Dungeons Dragons and the People Who Play It Visit Kevin Hardman s blog at Mikael Nara on Twitter at I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. I ll be completely honest here I picked this book up because I saw Michael s name under Narrator.I knew absolutely nothing about the book, but this was enough for me to want to get it.And made a mistake I did not Wendigo Fever certainly isn t a genre defining masterpiece, but is still very good and enjoyable story.Once again, it turned out to be a fantasy supernatural novel, and once again I really liked it.Kevin Hardman started a trilogy about Wardens, protectors of the people Wardens are monster hunters trained to tackle the worst that the tear between two worlds can push through.Not much has been said about the Tear between the worlds, nor it was actually named like that, but in the absence of a better word this is how I m calling it The Tear allows all kinds of monsters to step through, into the world of Man, and wreak equally the same kind of havoc and terror This issue seems to be growing, but we don t know anything about the combined effort to stop or slow it At least for now.Instead, the introductory novel focuses on brief description of the situation and world building while following the adventure of one individual.Errol, the Warden, a younger brother of Tom, also a Warden, hasn t heard back from his brother in several days His brother went on a routine Warden mission and hasn t been seen or heard since So Errol, who hates just about everything about being a Warden, embarks on a quest to find his brother.OK, this may be overly dramatic, but reading this review is still much better than reading a novel written by me, so consider yourselfes lucky If supernatural fantasy, monsters, magic and humor is your thing give this a go It s short, and unlikely to disappoint.For only 7 USD or GBP you can pick it up from Audible US UK.Rating of 4 doesn t mean the book is bad Only that after 3 hours of listening I was left with a feeling it could have been so much There s certainly an indication the author knew where to go with the story next.It s not disappointing, as I know that I ll have at least two books to read, but sequels are not available on Audible yet And if they re also as short On the much brighter side, it looks like Kevin Hardman and Mikael Nara have a good thing going, as Mikael narrates big majority of his books That fact alone makes me very happy Death RevengeAh, those Revenants Am I right I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone that likes fantasy or finds various monsters interesting The characters are solid I can relate to the main character as I would feel just as reluctant to undertake being a Warden, the town monster hunter His brother, Tom, is the actual Warden but Tom but Errol, the main character, through all the routines so that he s ready if he ever needs the skills Not really Spoiler alert He does come to need them The relationships in the book were a plus for me, much like Melody from the Rithmatist, I enjoyed Gale very much Errol and Gale have an interesting back and forth The book was short, but I think it was the perfect length It was enough plot to keep me interested but it also resolved in a timely manner The conclusion was satisfying and left room for a sequel It was very well done I did not find issue with the length, it had a complete story and left me wanting without feeling cheated.
