    1. Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths. P.H. Solomon’s book was one I initially overlooked last year. However, after being introduced to it through a blog tour, then enjoying Mr. Solomon’s two prequel short stories, I was intrigued enough to want to see where he was going with this story and hoping it would be exactly what the doctor ordered to satisfy my classic fantasy craving. And while I had a few issues with the narrative, overall, it was a very solid debut with room to grow into a fan favo [...]

    2. This is not my review since I am the author. Instead, I'm just sharing additional 5-star reviews from elsewhere:New 5 Star rating from a reviewer on NetGalley:"Wow. The characters are larger than life in this. You could almost expect them to climb out of the pages, I'm not even kidding (and promise I'm more sane than Athson at the beginning) This story is very well-written. It certainly leaves you desperately wanting more. There's a good thing there are more books, though I can hardly contain my [...]

    3. Fantasy at its FinestI’ve never written a fantasy story, but I love to read the genre. There’s something about being transported to a different realm where various creatures live in unfamiliar habitats, food and currency are foreign to me, and (almost always) there’s an epic quest.P. H. Solomon’s THE BOW OF DESTINY fulfills everything I look for in a fantasy and more. This is the story of Athson, son of Ath, who was raised by elves when his parents were violently killed by trolls and an [...]

    4. It’s been a while since I’ve read a fantasy novel and this book reminded me of everything I’ve been missing. A great plot, strong characters, cryptid visions, a quest, adventure, and magic. The writing is polished, the scenes vivid and the pacing perfect for keeping the reader flipping pages. Truly, an epic fantasy novel with twists and turns aplenty. The author’s world is populated by humans, elves, dwarves, giants and trolls (among others), and he does a great job of giving each race i [...]

    5. I’ve been waiting for this since reading the prequels, and it was well worth the wait.The author kept enough of the story a mystery until the right time while maintaining an engrossing story full of description and heartfelt love and angst. One of the highlights for me was the way the story started off with Athson having some difficulty before gradually moving away from some of the elements. I would say more, but I don’t want to spoil it. Sorry.The characters were well written and engaging t [...]

    6. good storyI was very hooked for the first third. Then the book slowed down (two conflicts were resolved that I thought were over too easily). Then the last bit felt disconnected. We had a bunch of small conflicts with the trolls but no real climax. It felt like scrambling around in the dark without accomplishing anything.The last couple pages were shocking and sad.I wanted to see Athson struggle more with his fits and seeing things, but it never caused any problems. Oh, take a potion and a magic [...]

    7. This is a classic fantasy book. If you love quest stories this book it definitely for you. The descriptions are very good and the majority of the characters are well developed. The plot is well developed and the plot twist at the end will get you. Can't wait for the second book to come out

    8. Great readI really enjoyed the book and was very disappointed when it ended. I am looking forward to the next one in the series.

    9. This book didn't take long to get me hooked. While I can indeed understand the quiver of some reviewers that disliked the dour personalities of the heros, I kind of like a change where we don't have the token class clown and the brooding teenager that makes stupid decisions. This novel seems to be written for an older audience (no sex and the worst swearing you'll read here is when Athson yells "dragon balls!").The premise begins with a confusing note. We soon meet Athson, a human ranger that is [...]

    10. I was given this as a free copy and was pleasantly surprised.A good solid fantasy novel very much in the vein of Lord of the Rings.

    11. Epic adventure!This is the beginning of an epic adventure (think Lord of the Rings) with none of the characters in this group without an amazing past or secret (or both) trying to stay alive and defeat evil. Throw in lots of unexpected twists and a spark of young love, and you have quite a tale! I was not required to write a review for this free book.

    12. First off, let me say this book has one of the most absolutely gorgeous covers out there! I was drawn to the story because of the cover for sure, which I can’t always say (or always use to judge). And the blurb is really good too. I’m drawn into the challenges Athson faces and emotionally invested around the time I read “tragically orphaned as a child.” P.H. Solomon gets points for both of those right off the bat.I loved the fact that the main character in Bow of Destiny is basically suf [...]

    13. The Bow of Destiny; The Bow of Hart Saga Book 1By P. H. SolomonAthson, son of Ath, has been living with the Elven Rangers since his family was killed along with his whole village 10 years ago. Savage Trolls showed no mercy, and serve a Wizard who is beholding to a vicious Dragon. As a young boy the massacre leaves him with spells in which his dead family appears to him, including his dog, Spark. The elves give him a potion called Soul — Ease which help during his ‘fits,’ and has to be used [...]

    14. If you love Fantasy stories about Rangers, then this is the book for you! There’s plenty of camping, tracking, hiking, and evading pursuers in the woods. Throughout the first half of the book, you can practically smell the wood-smoke, feel the dew on your pillow, hear the footsteps on pine needles. It’s cool when the heroes’ traveling party uses scouts to stalk ahead, looking for trouble, or where hunting parties take hours or days to track each other down before a vicious fight. And there [...]

    15. I'd been hearing good things about this book and after following the author's blog, I figured why not give this one a go. Unfortunately I was rather disappointed. The biggest let down for me was the writing style. I found it very difficult to engage with at times. Particularly at the start, where it seemed to jump point of view mid-paragraph without much notice. Too many pronouns were often thrown around making it difficult to tell what applied to whom. There were also a lot of unnecessary descr [...]

    16. This is very much part one of a series, which for me was the worst thing about it. However, Solomon writes with a vigorous imagination and pays attention to atmosphere. The story is ultimately engaging (although too much information is given through Athson's feverish thoughts in the first few pages, which this reader found confusing). There is good tension, and good pace except, perhaps, where there is a little too much camping and watch standing - but Solomon has managed to keep this from becom [...]

    17. *I received a ecopy from the author for my honest, unbiased review*Thank you!Cover: StunningRating: 4 StarsOverall: Exciting readCharacters: Well WrittenPlot: A unique twist on fantasyPage Turner: YesRecommend: YesSource: Author (Kindle)Short Review:I was super excited when the author asked if I wanted to read his book for a review! The cover caught my eye, and the blurb is a twist on fantasy I hadn't experienced yet. It didn't disappointed! Beautifully detailed, and well written this was a fun [...]

    18. This is an interesting read. Atheson is an interesting character because he really struggles with what's real and what's not. He's never sure if what he is seeing and hearing are fact or fiction. His medication, when he remembers to take it, seems to help him manage this. In the midst of this he finds himself on a quest that is stopped or threatened by trolls at every corner. And then he has the dark wizard and the dragon to deal with, along with his hallucinations. There is a lot of action and [...]

    19. I found this book to be a very entertaining and interesting read. Athson reminded me of Aragorn at times (which is a very good thing), and Solomon creates a rich and descriptive world for readers to immerse themselves in. The premise in my opinion was unique, complex and riveting all at the same time. I was really rooting for Athson to find himself and discover a happier life, leaving his haunting past where it belongs - in the past. The cover is great too. I think it really encompasses the stor [...]

    20. Great ReadPretty Good Reading Can't Wait To Read The Next One Mr Solomon Would Like To Get For Free On My Kindle Fire

    21. Just finished reading this book and I really enjoyed it.This was my first book by this author and I just downloaded the next book in the series. It is a story about a young man, Ashton, who is a member of the Rangers. He is an orphan as a result of trolls attacking his village when he was a child. He suffers from "spells" as a result . As part of his work for the Rangers, he becomes involved in a quest. This quest begins to involve what happened to Ashton as a child. The story involves elves, dw [...]

    22. The idea of the series looks interesting but the characters God, is Athson a moron! Ok, I can understand him being plagued by his past - after all PTSD is something even fantasy characters may suffer from, but his mindset and behavior is not that of a 20 years old, hardened-by-life man. He behaves either like a 4 years old having a temper tantrum, or like a 14 years old teenager plagued by uncertainty - its really annoying! And the other "suffering" characters are really no better! I gave it 2 s [...]

    23. AwesomeThe saga is enthralling and keeps your attention. What will the following book bring to the table to keep interest going. Can't wait

    24. this is book 1not what i would call fast pace. reserving judgment till i can see more development coming in book 2 - location backgrounds are muddy definitely not a reread

    25. 2.5 stars The characters were flat and hard to like, and didn't develop at all. Most of the scenes between the short and somewhat confusing battle scenes were full of whining about the same things over and over again. While there was potential in the plot, it was really hard to understand what was going on at first and unfortunately it didn't get much better. Too bad.

    26. Solomon tells a good tale. His description is wonderful, and you can almost smell the world the characters live in. The characters are unique, and recognizable as individuals. I particularly like how Athson is confused, and has visions that may, or may not, be real. The giant with his hand language is unique and very interesting. It even includes a budding love story, but it kind of drags its feet. My only small issue is that nothing is concluded at the end of this book. Certainly a series shoul [...]

    27. The cover of this book is brilliant, and I enjoyed the descriptive writing. However, to my mind it could have done with more editing. I found the missing words, and occasional confusing POV, distracting; which was a shame as the basic story was good.

    28. UninspiredI read books for the characters and I found it difficult to like any of them. I could not find my self caring about them, mostly they just annoyed me.
