    I picked up this one because I saw an average rating on GR of 4.7. A month later, while I'm struggling through, I discover the average rating has dropped to 4.04. Not so bad, you'd say. But bad enough for me. The writing is terrible. I actually think I can write better than this. It's like I'm reading a book draft from a Chinese author who's writing in English, a language he's only known for a few months. It's that bad. The book needs editing! But hold on.

The book needs editing! But hold on. That's the good part. The bad part is the sex descriptions in the book. You can't go a single paragraph without seeing the word 'pussy' or some other word related to sex. And that's for a book that's supposed to be epic fantasy. The language isn't anything epic. It's like the book was written by some ADHD-afflicted teenage boy with serious hormonal abnormalities. Then there's mentions of weed.... I mean, weed? Seriously? In epic fantasy? Ass, cunt, weed, pussy aren't word that belong in epic fantasy imo. It's just disgusting. Then there's the writing. I don't even know what's supposed to be happening in the book. All I've been reading is about a bunch of sex-happy, deluded, childish teenagers who have no scruples. No virtue! I have no use in reading a book that flaunts indecency and whoring as perfectly normal. The book was so bad I had to stop halfway. There's hundreds more books waiting to be read!

That would be like comparing MADD magazine with War and Peace. ++BTW this is, as I have recently been educated, NOT a Medieval book. It is a FUTURE Medieval book. What ever the hell THAT'S supposed to mean. Absurd really. There's no mention of the year the story takes place, nor is there any sort of indication in the beginning (ya know where the author is suppose to set the atmosphere, time etc..writing 101) of the book that this takes place in the future. I guess we are suppose to understand this by the title alone.++ This book was free. I wouldn't read this if I was paid to do so. AVOID AVOID AVOID

It was well done. However, the rest of the story seems like a different book. The majority of the characters I have read about are sex-obsessed teenagers. I knew from the synopsis that there was sexual content, and I agree that some sexual content can add depth to a story or character, but if that is all there is it's like eating too much chocolate. After a while it just makes you sick. Where is the plot? The synopsis said this book was written for adults, not sex-crazed teenagers. Adults want more complexity. I would also highly recommend the author get editors. I'm grateful he uses spellcheck! But there were grammatical errors that were very distracting. The writing style was often stilted and did not flow well, as if the author were the one smoking cannabis and not his characters. Having editors would make him a better writer as well as making his stories more enjoyable to read. The characters all have potential, except maybe the Prince. He came across as a spoiled, shallow young man who ran away from his problems rather than trying to face them or finding wise counselors to help him make good decisions. However, if that is what the author intended, he did a good job. For all the rest, the author needs to learn to develop the characters while moving the plot (what plot?) along! Ok. I am now halfway through the book. I would still only give this book 2 stars. When it said the book was written for adults, I did not realize that meant that it was not a book that contained some adult content, but was a book that was mostly adult content. The major theme in the book is sex. While it may not be pornographic, it goes far beyond innuendo. If I had known, I would not have purchased this book. While the author has some good ideas, they are not developed with any depth. Tell me more about the dragon riders! What do the allfathers/allmothers believe? They hold a great deal of power...how did they get to that position? What about the investigation into Jason's murder? Do we ever find out who killed him? Or how? Or why? What about the secret passages? Who is using them? What are their plans? Or, who would even discover the truth since the lord who should investigate won't? Why is that lord trying to cover it up? Who is he in league with? Many alliances are obvious, but many are hidden without even a hint. It is difficult to see the bigger picture and how each of the characters fit. By this point in the book I thought I would have a better idea. Some of the characters that were introduced at the beginning, that I thought would be main characters, now seem unimportant. There is no clear progression of events. I have decided not to torture myself by finishing this book. If you enjoy a smutty romance, you might like this book. If you are looking for a good book to read, keep looking.

    It is hard to rate your own book. I loved writing it and hope others read and share it with their friends.

    The book was definitely a page-turner. I started it at about 10 pm and couldn't put it down past 3am. It is a bit long so it took me 3 nights to finish it. The book has over 450 pages, I don't know why Amazon said it is 300 or so. My favorite thing about the book has to be the characters that go through some very serious times.

I haven't read anything like that before. To find out Daven's fate now I have to wait for the next book. That really sucks to have to wait. I understand it is part of a series, but waiting for the next book to come out in July is way too long. I'm waiting for Winds of Winter by George R.R.Martin for years so i guess I shouldn't complain that much. I still can't explain those Allfathers, who are all a part of some mysterious organization. I'd imagine the next book goes into the wars across the planet. This book focuses more on the characters, which was great. The revolution came at the end. 4 stars for this book.

    Writer Michael Anthony's novel is unusual in that it is actually an oxymoron - it takes place in the future but is medieval in nature. The setting is in a futuristic world a massive meteor has destroyed much of humanity. A powerful secret political group, the Allfathers thinks that destiny lies in one man who they wish to see as the world leader. The young man, Daven, has other ideas though as does not want the control. In a sense, he would much rather have true love.

The book is an all out thriller, packed with lots of action, drama, and romance, and will have you flipping pages to see how it all ends. The author does a masterful job weaving twists and turns in to keep the reader reading, while developing each character into complex real life figures, some you will love and some you will hate!

    DNF I got to 17% and gave up. I saw so many reviews of people loving it. I couldn't get through it. When I want fantasy, that's what I want, and most of it came across as the diary of sex and pot obsessed teens. I certainly don't mind a little of that if its worked into the genre, but this literally read as if I were sitting in a high school cafeteria (a "food court" is even referred to at one point). I find the writing also comes across as if written by a teenager, or someone very inexperienced; DNF I got to 17% and gave up. I saw so many reviews of people loving it. I couldn't get through it.

    Wow what an ending! I was excited to read this book and I was not disappointed! The ending was a shocker to me and I can't wait until July to read the next book! Im excited to hear that their will be 6 books in this series too! I don't want to make any spoilers about the story, but I love how the book is broken up and dedicated to each character throughout the book. I would recommend the book to all medieval lovers!

    Good story I liked the story and characters. The developing plot is good also. I personally did not care for the s&m and dominatrix sex scenes but I just skipped over them.

    Medieval Future is another book I have mixed feelings about. The story overall is pretty good, although it takes a while for the relationship between the various elements to begin to become clear. The writing is sort of strange. The style throughout is very simplistic – almost uniformly short sentences with very few complicated words aside from some of the names of people and places, although this is not as obvious early in the book as it becomes later on. It would seem from this that the book i Medieval Future is another book I have mixed feelings about. The story overall is pretty good, although it takes a while for the relationship between the various elements to begin to become clear. The writing is sort of strange. The style throughout is very simplistic – almost uniformly short sentences with very few complicated words aside from some of the names of people and places, although this is not as obvious early in the book as it becomes later on. It would seem from this that the book is designed for younger readers. However, a great deal of time is spent on the sexual vagaries of several of the characters, and while these are not portrayed in the full graphic detail of true erotica, they seem a little too explicit for something intended for young readers. Even the violence (and there is quite a bit of violence in some parts) is hardly more explicit than the sexual references. The editing on this book is absolutely atrocious too. The credits actually list a person as having been the editor, but you have to wonder whether this is a cruel trick to discredit this person, or if maybe the unedited version was accidentally uploaded instead of the edited version or something. The entire book is rife with issues such as: • Changing the tense of the verbs in the middle of the sentences • Two words that seem to be meant to do the same thing together in a sentence (as if the intention was to replace one with the other, but both were accidentally left in) • Inconsistent spellings of proper names; for example, Lord Ragin’s first name is given as Robert in some places and Robbert in others. The plot seems to be something like this: long ago the modern world was destroyed, not by nuclear weapons, but by an attack of meteors from space that had the effect of bombing civilization back to the stone age and greatly reducing, but not eliminating the human population. Humanity has been struggling to make a comeback for all these years, and they have finally succeeded in reaching the technology and political organization of the medieval world. Somehow in this regenerated world, there are magic and dragons. Not sure how that happened. Anyway, after many wars, most of the countries of what appears to be more or less western Europe have become united under a single king in a country that now goes by the name of Brookler. There are other countries in different parts of the world – Greenland is mentioned frequently and prominently. There is a group known as the Sea Lords, who are in cahoots with another group known as Somans, and this bunch is engaged in a hostile takeover of Greenland. Another country with extensive ties to Brookler is a place known as New Merka. You can suspect early on that this is what is left of North America, and the closing lines of the book when the New Merkans sing their national anthem, and it is “The Star Spangled Banner” would seem to indicate that this is right. (Ok, this is probably a spoiler, but in this book that knowledge doesn’t seem to make much difference, as most of the action takes place in and around Brookler). Anyway, back in Brookler, there are several deaths, one of them being the king of Brookler. At first, the Right Hand of the King moves to contain the damage and try to find out who is responsible. But he and his loyal troops and the Sam Merkan warriors who were the guards of the late King are pushed out in short order by the Left Hand of the King and the King’s younger son, Prince Baret, and in less than a day, it seems the whole country is at war. Word comes in that the King’s older son, Prince Daven, has been killed in some sort of accident at his university where he was just returning after the New Year’s festivities that have just ended. This last is not actually true, but it plays into the hands of the Left Hand and Prince Baret. They crown Baret King, and the Left Hand promotes himself to Right Hand, and the entire country is in an uproar. A lot more people are killed. There is more, but at the end, things are left very much up in the air, ready for the next book in the series.

    Hard hitting truths I started this book thinking I would just read something quick to take up time - but soon I was involved in the lives of Davenport, Vickey, Vikter and the Ragins as I could be. I could definitely see where this could happen to our planet although not from meteorites but from the stupidity of the people of this planet themselves. Politics seem to be like a roach- you can never kill them off. I have really enjoyed this book even though I don't care for politics or politicians.

    Although different to what I was expecting, I really did enjoy this book. A page turner with plenty of action. I rarely read epic fantasy, but am sure after reading this book, I will be reading much more in this genre. I never write what a book is about, for fear of spoiling for others. So pleased to have won this book in the Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.

    Medieval Future I really enjoyed reading this book. It is different from anything I have read before. The characters are well thought out and written about. The author does a great job in describing how the characters feel at the time. A great read for an adult.

    Passable as light reading. It's not very often that you get gratuitous sex incorporated in a realm of fantasy. However it does not reduce the story of its cohesion. Passable as light reading.
