The Hawk and His Boy in review

The Hawk And His Boy (The Tormay Trilogy)

The Hawk And His Boy (The Tormay Trilogy) is a well written start to a fantasy trilogy.  It features a few different story lines following various characters both good and bad.

Jute is a young thief who is very talented at getting past wards.  The thieves guild has him steal an item from a mysterious house and during the job something happens that is causing him to change.  By the end of the book we know what is happening, but we do not know what the end affect is going to be on the young boy.

Levoreth is a young lady who is a lot more than she seems.  She has a very strong connection to the Earth and animals of all kinds.  

Ronan is the Knife of the Thieves Guild.  He is given the job of stealing the item that gets Jute involved in this whole story.

Nio is a wizard of very questionable morality who is bent on gathering more and more power.  

Severan is a scholar with a slight magical talent that ends up befriending the lonely and confused Jute.

Even though all of these characters don't meet in this book you can tell that their stories are intertwined.  I found this book to be a very enjoyable read and very much am looking forward to his next.   I believe I read somewhere that he has books 2 and 3 already written and we can expect both of them this year.  Book 2 is currently in line the cover art and book 3 needs to be send out for a final edit and get its cover art.
