Here are four recent reviews of Dancing Prince, posted on Amazon. Nothing touches an author’s heart like seeing people connect to something he’s written.
“’We are always part of a story larger and older than ourselves.’ ~ the fictional Farley McNeill, Ph.D. in the Foreward to fictional Erika’s fiction story.
“Love. Loss. Grief. Grace. Kindness. Compassion. Politics. Royalty. Romance. Family Dynamics. Mystery. Suspense. Humor. Art. Archeology. Christian Vikings. Well-rounded characters. Detailed description. Rich imagery. This book has it all.
“It’s not a slim book, either. And I read it in a weekend, though reduced to tears as soon as the first chapter. I woke up this morning still thinking about the book and wishing the series didn’t have to end.
“The characters are well developed, and there’s a cast of characters if you forget who’s who. Descriptions are detailed–but not so much that you get lost. The imagery is rich. Also, there’s enough backstory in this book that it can stand alone. But if I were you, I’d read the whole series. This is a story–and a family–that will stick with me.” — Sandra
“Remember when the last LOTR movie won all the award, partly in recognition for the achievement of the series? I liken that to this last book in the five-book Kent-Hughes saga. It’s a great story although not my favorite in the series (that’s book 3, “Dancing King”). And there is, in this one, a return of the king.
“The first two chapters really grabbed me and set up what is to come in the rest of the novel. I really enjoyed when the story went on remote, taking place in a new location, just to shake things up. Like another reviewer said, I loved the epilogue and thought it capped off the entire series.
“I am sad to see the story end, but it ended well and, I think, at the right spot. This is a series I have recommended to others and will continue to recommend.
“Well done, Glynn!” – Megan
“I have been completely captivated by Glynn Young’s cast of characters in The Dancing Priest series, but this final story is a crowning gem (pun intended). And the epilogue is the sweetest surprise. Such lovely, lovely storytelling. I couldn’t stop reading until the end.” – Laura
“I read the other four books by Glynn. Loved them. I was right into the life of the people. Hated to come to the end and found this one The Dancing Prince. Got it immediately and loved it. Very interesting. Involved in so many intriguing people with so many interesting stories. Loved the dig on the special island and the findings. Then to make everything even more intriguing, a story involving the people revolved around the dig. I don’t want to give it away. I tried another book because I love books, but this new one left me down. Nothing compared to the Glynn Young books. He’s an exceptional writer. Wish he had another ten or more books available. Read these books, you will not regret it.” – Del
