    Ryan Doughan’s Mist Falcon is a well told epic fantasy told in the classic fashion with rich characters who live in a deep and complex world. The stakes are high, real, and best growing more dear chapter by chapter. The well drawn characters are pulled together in snaking story lines. At the start, the main hero, Aiden, finds himself buried in poverty, but his "good fortune" day sends him reeling into his worst nightmare as his love is lost, his body beaten, and even his freedom is taken away. H Ryan Doughan’s Mist Falcon is a well told epic fantasy told in the classic fashion with rich characters who live in a deep and complex world. The stakes are high, real, and best growing more dear chapter by chapter. The well drawn characters are pulled together in snaking story lines. At the start, the main hero, Aiden, finds himself buried in poverty, but his "good fortune" day sends him reeling into his worst nightmare as his love is lost, his body beaten, and even his freedom is taken away. He is eventually befriended by Willem, a wondering Minstrel, and a pair of good humored thieves. Each character has a unique voice with a solid backstory. In fact, that’s one of the great strengths of Mist Falcon: Book 1 of the Warrior Poet Archives; history is layered in a meaningful way that pushes the action. The influence of random coincidences saving the day or happenstance as motivation is rare. Things are moving for a reason. This goes for characters, but also the different cities. Doughan’s sense of time, place and causality grounds the story well. So while fate and destiny grapple with lives, the actions don’t feel preordained and the heroes mere victims of fate tossed about by the wind. They unite for a reason and fight, claw, escape, and learn for their own purposes. In Mist Falcon, you’ll find magic, traps, mysteries, battle, but no romance only love lost. One caution, it took me a few chapters to get into the flow of the story. Doughan’s writing for Mist Falcon is a little formal at times and a few sentences carry a little extra baggage, but once you get into the main story… the pacing and current keeps you moving and you don’t want to stop reading. Over all, a good book and well worth a shot if you are a fan of epic fantasy.

    Took a chance on this one because I know the author on Twitter (but not in real life). It had generally good reviews, though not a lot of them, so I was a little skeptical going in. As it turns out, I had no reason to be skeptical. It's not a perfect book (occasional awkward sentences and minor editing issues), but these issues never pulled me out of the story. I connected with Aiden and Willem right away.

It took me a bit longer to connect with Tako, but his story has a lot of potential to become very interesting in subsequent installments. Rem and Lem were a lot of fun. The best thing about this book was the action, especially toward the end of the book. I had that frantic feeling reading the last thirty percent. When I get that feeling, I know a book is good. If I had to take a guess, I'd say fans of Weeks and Sanderson would find a lot to enjoy in this story. Rating: 9/10

    Mist Falcon is an excellent first volume in what should be an exciting epic fantasy series. This story kept me engaged for its entire telling. I was constantly reading just one more chapter so I could see what was happening to the characters I had begun investing myself in. As the first book in the series I think that Doughan did a good job of laying the framework for his overall vision of where this journey will take readers while keeping the reader interested in what was happening in this curr Mist Falcon is an excellent first volume in what should be an exciting epic fantasy series.

As the first book in the series I think that Doughan did a good job of laying the framework for his overall vision of where this journey will take readers while keeping the reader interested in what was happening in this current volume of it. I think that this is a worthwhile read for anyone who enjoys good storytelling and am excited to see where Doughan takes this series in the future.

    I got this book from my library Zip-book program at the request of a friend to read his work. Sadly I must say that I could not finish it for I found it dull, poorly written and lacking an in interesting plot. I found a couple mistakes in the editing; something that I do not like to see in a book for a it makes it look cheap and as if the author didn't take a lot of time in writing/editing it.

    I can still hear Tanbuary’s “step, clank, step, clank” as he moved down the dungeon corridor in this novel. The atmospherics in MIST FALCON work very well, which is good news for a fantasy story. I can’t recall a novel of this genre that invests the magical elements with such believable and diverse detail. I also liked how well-developed the antagonist’s camp is (i.e. Dal Tek, Ren Tako, and the Swaar) while not allowing them to overwhelm the story.

The story’s multiple plot-lines in Acts 1 and 2 are intricately interwoven, and unfold the story’s narrative arc with a richness and contrast that never loses momentum. It deftly balances action with atmosphere, and character intensity with an always-moving plot. Early on in the story the gladiatorial section ends with a regrettable 'deus ex machina', a scene that also introduces Thun, Jumper, and the Elementals. If that one scene were modified so their escape from the combat occurs differently, before the power of the Elementals is revealed, the novel’s one weakness would be corrected. That aside, MIST FALCON is an excellent addition to the growing canon of fantasy fiction, and I look forward the next book in this series, ‘The Warrior Poet Archives’. I especially enjoyed the action-packed 3rd Act, the action never lets up. Last note, the book’s cover is quite good, depicting a swirling Elemental with a Mist Falcon standing in the foreground.

    Well, I’ll say it right up front—MIST FALCON is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. I know you can hear that kind of thing a lot in reviews, but in all seriousness, I read all the time, and this book is a ride from beginning to end. I loved it. The book follows three main characters (Aiden, Willem, and Tako, Wolf Rider,) along with a swarm of supporting cast (I particularly loved the twins, Rem & Lem) as the world of the Nine Cities unfolds.

Through death, revenge, imprisonment, slavery, salvation, untapped powers, betrayal and more, MIST FALCON flies us through a shattered kingdom besieged by a new foe of old. I think this is the first chapter of something big! The depth of the world and trueness of the characters, paired with the sweeping, intoxicating story telling that Doughan offers makes this a must read. Do yourself a big favor and pick up a copy of this today. You won’t be disappointed. Now the unfairness of the world sets in as I have to wait for book two of The Warrior Poet Archives to come out. Please hurry, Ryan J. Doughan! I might go into withdrawal otherwise!

    I can't say enough good things about this book; I didn't want it to end and was sad when I hit the last page, not because of the content but because there was no more. It's obvious to me that a great deal of thought and planning went into this creation - the backstory alone to mold the realm I was sucked into is excellent. I found all the characters engaging and even rooted for one of the antagonists. This is a wholly unique and original story in my opinion - masterfully written.

    Not too many books get a five star rating, I save that for only the best. This is one of those books.

    I really really wanted to rate this book better. Slow start but the author's best strength is in developing characters and well described fight scenes. The book definitely picks up in the middle and ends with a bang. I'm invested in knowing more and reading the next books despite the 3 stars. Speaking of --- 3 stars because I spotted so MANY grammatical mistakes through the book. Even put it down since the first couple pages had some too. And there were so many run on sentences and commas that it I really really wanted to rate this book better.

    Okay Interesting world and some good concepts. Frustrating when characters make uncharacteristically dumb decisions just to get into trouble for the plot movement. Could use an editor/proofreader once over (plumb is not the word for the fruit plum, other random instances of grammar and word issues but not so many as to give up on the story).
