    1. Review copy kindly donated by co-author and GR friend, Ahimsa Kerp. This book tells of a political conflict for the throne of a kingdom. But it is less about the actual claimants, who largely remain offstage, than the ripple effects of the conflict. And everything culminates in a fierce battle waged around a fortress called Baldairn Motte, which seems to evoke a half-mythological and half-forgotten past.In the first novella, the story centres around Lyrie, a whore who gets dragged into the battl [...]

    2. For a heroic fantasy novel written by not one, not two, but three authors - Garrett Calcaterra, Craig Comer, and Ahimsa Kerp - The Roads to Baldairn Motte is a surprisingly well-structured, remarkably cohesive tale that actually benefits from the different voices, without seeming fragmented. It's worth noting that this is a second edition of the tale, with new content, and a massive restructuring. I can't speak for the original edition, but my impression, based on this, is that restructuring pai [...]

    3. Story: 2.0 starsCharacters: 4.0 starsPacing: 3.5 starsWriting: 4.0 starsAverage: 3.4 starsThe Roads to Baldairn tells the story of incipient war between the lands in a kingdom characterized as the North and the South. We don’t know much about the war in this first book except that it is a power play. What the story mainly entails are a series of vignettes with various characters involved in the skirmishes and battles of this war. There are a dizzying amount of characters. Most of them have ver [...]

    4. I was very disappointed in the book. There was little character development and no real characters that were like able or even villainous. In fact all of the characters were 'milk toast'. There were sequences in the story that I had thought I may accidentally skipped a paragraph or a page, but after backstopping, I realized it was just the writer's style to rush through certain sequences. It simply didn't work for me. I had very high hopes for the book, seeing that 4 others rated it with 5 stars [...]
