Excellent weekend reading: The Prodigy of Rainbow Tower

Cover Art by Jason Pedersen

I first read The Prodigy of Rainbow Tower back in 2013. Here’s the Amazon review I wrote for it:

Months after reading this book, my mind is still drawn to it. The fight scenes are descriptive without being overdone, the characters are realistic and dynamic, and there are surprise punches I just didn’t see coming. It’s a great adventure story. There’s a lot going on in this book, but Charles Yallowitz somehow made it all flow together seamlessly. I’ll continue to recommend this series to anyone who enjoys reading fantasy.

That holds as true now as it did when I first read the book. Nyx is a complex, exciting character who I feel really compliments Luke Callindor’s character. The fight scenes are realistic and the action is both fast-paced and smooth. It kept me reading and reading.

It’s been a busy week, so I haven’t finished reading through The Prodigy of Rainbow Tower the second time, but I’m enjoying what I have been able to read. I’m looking forward to finishing it again sometime soon.

I will say this: I don’t read every book twice. Especially when it comes to an entire series. Charles Yallowitz has done a great job with his books. (Check out his blog, and watch for his first video interview coming up on October 22).

From my blog review last year:

According to Dave Farland’s Million Dollar Outlines, books should evoke strong emotional responses. I would say Yallowitz’s settings do that for me. I’m only a third of the way through the book, but I had to fight myself to put it down long enough to blog about it.

If you’re looking for a book to really draw you in this weekend, this is a good one. I’m hoping for more entries to the #burgersandbooks giveaway this week so I can give this book away next Friday.

Happy reading!

  1. Glad you’re enjoying it during the second run. Nyx is definitely one of my favorites and her evolution over the course of the series is going to be interesting.
