Global reviews for the Prophecy of the Kings

As an Indie author it is not easy getting genuine reviews. On Amazon, my books have only a smattering of reviews and being a trilogy they are diluted across the three books and the omnibus. However, across many review sites the books have many great reviews. Check out my website below for a more comprehensive list of reviews and links to these:

Some example reviews with links to their source:
Legacy of the Eldric is pure escapism, a high fantasy novel that manages to entertain from beginning to end with an easy to read narrative, interesting characters and intelligent world building, I highly recommend this novel to any fan of fantasy fiction. (5/5 stars)

Yes there are is a prophecy, dwarfs, demons and dragons, but the story is captivating, exciting and fast-moving and you will find it difficult to put down. David Burrows has added some nice touches to what could have turned out to be a run of the mill fantasy. If you love Raymond E Feist or Robin Hobb you will not regret adding this book to your bookshelf.  (4/5stars)

In Legacy of the Eldric he has certainly achieved his aim; the characters are memorable and the plot is fast-paced and exciting. It is an opening chapter in a series that I look forward to reading the mid and end parts to. This is solid fantasy; exactly what a fantasy doctor would order for those looking for an enjoyable escape from reality, fans of Tolkien, Hobb and Moorcock will love what they find here. Definitely recommended. (8/10 stars)

While the writing is good, and the battle scenes are excellent, the true highlight of these novels for me, were the characters. Each were distinct and interesting. While it did take me a bit of time to absorb their personalities, once I did, I deeply cared for the outcome of their lives. Kaplyn, whom was the main character, was very likable, and Vastra, a wizard with a secret, was compelling all the way through. There was also a decent amount of character development, which is something I always enjoy. For me, if the characters aren’t interesting, the writing will never truly grab me. (4/5 stars)

Fantastic fantasy series! This series has everything a fantasy lover like me wants out of a story. It had me constantly turning the pages to find out what happens next! Very exciting and gripping in every aspect of the word. I recommend this series to all fantasy lovers, I know you'll love it as much as I do! (5 out of 5 stars)

The Prophecy of the Kings trilogy is a fantastic epic. David Burrows creates a vibrant and compelling world which captivates his readers. The first book started a little slow but quickly grabs a hold of the reader. Burrows develops his characters well and by the end of the first book you feel compelled to keep reading to find out the outcome of the tribulations the characters must go through. The second and third books are equally engaging and the pace quickens with every page. I truly enjoyed this novel and would recommend to all fantasy fiction fans. (5 out of 5 stars)

I really enjoyed the story and found that the books were very easy to ready and very enjoyable. I felt that these characters all brought something to the story while still not making the story so complex that it was hard to follow. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre of book. (4 out of 5 stars)

Great reading and a Merry Christmas
