Admirable by Sarah Holman (Short Story)

This short story is a very quick, fairly intriguing read. It was a nice introduction to the world of the Tales of Taelis seriesโ€”book one is Adventures and Adversities, which I hadnโ€™t read yet.

Admirable provides a little backstory for William, a character from Adventures and Adversities, and I enjoyed stepping into this medieval setting (in a fictional place) and meeting William and his sister, both of whom I quite liked. ๐Ÿ™‚

The frequency of typos and errors was somewhat distracting, and William seemed to act older than he was supposed to be (could just be me!) but otherwise it was an interesting and enjoyable read. ๐Ÿ™‚

I did like this peek at this medieval world of castles and such, with some sweet Christian characters, and I look forward to reading more stories in the Taelis series!

(Also, I LOVE that cover!)

Thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dream away in those pages . . .
