    Michael Wisehart is one of my favorite authors, alongside Michael J. Sullivan, John Bierce, and Brian McClellan. So, I was extremely excited to be part of the “review team” for Rockslide, the third installment of the series Street Rats of Aramoor. In this book, Ayrion finds himself responsible for a group of outcasts from the various street tribes of Aaramoor. Starving and harassed by the other tribes, the outcasts are struggling simply to survive.

So, I was extremely excited to be part of the “review team” for Rockslide, the third installment of the series Street Rats of Aramoor. In this book, Ayrion finds himself responsible for a group of outcasts from the various street tribes of Aaramoor. Starving and harassed by the other tribes, the outcasts are struggling simply to survive. Feeling the burden of leadership, Ayrion and his friends Reevie and Sapphire endeavor to save the outcasts as well as the members of Hurricane by earning entrance into the Guild. However, nothing is ever easy, and several members of the Guild are eager to see the demise of Ayrion and the Hurricane tribe, so they ask an impossible price, one that Ayrion cannot pay without extreme risk to his life. If you have not already done so, I suggest re-reading Hurricane (the second book in the series). It has been a long time since I read it, and consequently, when I started reading Rockslide, it took me a while to recall who the various characters were and how they related to one another. As I said before, Michael Wisehart is one of my favorite authors. I enjoy the way he writes. Personally, I thought Rockslide was a little slow, but that may be due to the fact that I know where the story is going. I have read, and truly love, The Aldoran Chronicles and know the role that Aryion plays in that series. Consequently, I am very eager (one might say impatient), to see how he gets there. However, Rockslide, like the other Street Rats books, primarily still deals with Aryion’s life on the streets of Aramoor. So, I guess I will just have to learn to be patient while I wait for Aryion to grow from being a street rat to the character he is in The Aldoran Chronicles. A little bit of waiting never hurt anyone….right? Visit my blog to see what other books and movies I've enjoyed: https://reading4fun.blog/

    Dissapointing Generally, I've really liked this series. I would give the first 2 books a 4.2 to 4.5. They were well written. This one left a lot to be desired. Basically, the MC spent the whole book being an idiot. He and his friends were attacked by his enemies multiple times. The MC, a trained assassin, also had multiple chances to rectify the situation by killing his enemies. Instead he spares them they then try to kill his friends again, he spares them. You get the point. How many times do p Dissapointing Generally, I've really liked this series. I would give the first 2 books a 4.2 to 4.5. They were well written. This one left a lot to be desired.

The MC, a trained assassin, also had multiple chances to rectify the situation by killing his enemies. Instead he spares them they then try to kill his friends again, he spares them. You get the point. How many times do people have to try to kill you and your loved ones before you realize they can't be bargained with? Then at the behest of his enemy who tried to kill him and his friends he takes on a ridiculous mission to break into the palace and steal the King's signet ring. Mind you, he could have much more easily killed his enemy and eliminated the problem all together. Basically, the whole premise of the book makes no sense. The whole thing rests on bad decision making followed by highly improbable situations followed by more bad decision making. Also they kept worrying about money when the MC could literally break into anyone's home and steal plenty of gold. Keep in mind the group's main source of revenue is stealing. At one point in the book, the group considers stealing food from another street gang. The MC refues to steal from other kids. Mind you the other group of kids had just kidnapped members of the MCs group with plans to torture and kill them. Meanwhile the MCs group is facing starvation. The logic in this book just doesn't add up.

He keeps doing the impossible because his tribe needs money from the thieving, yet with his skills he could just go and steal bags of money oand keep them well fed… I had to stop reading at the part where he supposed to steal something from royalty, just for the right to continue thieving in a poor part of the city… How biblically stupid would you have to be to do that rather than just go directly for money, wealth and power stopped reading

    I have to say, Mr. Wisehart has poured his ability to make characters come alive into this series. This third installment is better than the first two. To me a good book of fiction and fantasy will get me lost in the wonder of a new world. I am very stingy with my reading time, so if you have not dragged me down the rabbit hole in the first chapter, I move on. From start to finish the Characters, the world, and the magic are spot on, and I never looked back.

I found myself rooting for this young man, who against all odds fights for what is right. A plus in Wisehart's writing, is that it is clean language, nothing loss in the story, but I feel free to give to my young nephews and nieces to read.

    Banished and Hurricane were so good, I have been looking forward to the third book in this series, and Rockslide did not disappoint! Mr. Wisehart is a very gifted writer of epic fantasy. His books are fun, exciting, and enthralling. His story-telling draws you in and makes you feel like you are part of the story. His creative and descriptive writing takes you there, to see what they are seeing! The world of the five Kingdoms is amazing and believable!

His creative and descriptive writing takes you there, to see what they are seeing! The world of the five Kingdoms is amazing and believable! There is not as much magic in Rockslide as in his other books, especially The White Tower and Plague of Shadows, but Ayrion’s Upakan training, along with some magic, helps explain how a 13-year old can accomplish so much! I have thoroughly enjoyed all of Mr. Wisehart’s books, and if you enjoy good fantasy, I highly recommend them!

    Another Great Story From Wisehart Whether one is reading about the fantastical happenings found concerning magic, and it's banning, around the five kingdoms, or the day to day troubles faced living in the streets of Aramoor, Michael Wisehart never disappoints.

    Okay, I'm still on board. This book series is a quick, fun, and easy to read non stop adventure that makes you think, "Oh my gosh, really, what is he going to do now?" But, not in a bad way. Kind of how you would look at one of your children, knowing that they really mean good - but the outcome is not always what they expected. Good intentions...... Still alternating between listening and reading and still enjoying TGR as the narrator. I REALLY enjoyed the ending to this book - but I think it was Okay, I'm still on board.

I REALLY enjoyed the ending to this book - but I think it was because we FINALLY get to see the connection to how Ayrion ends up at the beginning of the White Tower. There seems to be a set up for another book in this series, but I'm not sure. I guess we will see.....

    I was really excited to get my copy of Rockslide. I've read all of Michaels books and this is one of the best. After reading the first few pages I realized that I needed to re-read the first two books in the series. Banished (Street Rats of Aramoor: Book 1) and Hurricane (Street Rats of Aramoor: Book 2). I'm old what can I say? I forgot all the details. LOL, anyway it was exciting to go back and review and was I ever ready to read Rockslide. I hope he continues pumping out books in this series.

    This was a great read! I can't wait for more. I lived it, right along with Ayrion & the others. The story is full of fun and excitement. And it's as serious as a heart attack and as descriptive as 'pus flaming bunions'. Ayrion is a very young and talented boy who leads a rag tag band of kids on a journey that's sure to tickle your funny bone and heart strings. And leave you wanting more. This was a great read!

    Another winner! I just love these books. Storylines are so good. To realize that these are just children who are doing all these things is pretty cool. I always get regretful at the end of a book , because I have to wait for the next one to come out! This one was definitely worth waiting for. I always wondered how Aryan met the king and became friends with the prince oh, and now I know 😀

    Fantastic story Having just finished all of the books currently in the arc, I would highly recommend them. Starting with Mr. Wisehart's free "Shackled" to the White Tower series and then the Street Rats of Aramoor, the story and characters keep building and growing. I for one cannot wait for more adventures of Aryion and hope he continues both the Street Rats and the White Tower arcs.

    An excellent sequel to the Street Rats of Armour series. Very well written story with great world building and strong character development. The characters are believable and have good personalities. A hard to put down book that I highly recommend! Will be patiently waiting for the next book in the series.

    I like the world he’s built. I think that the author has done a good job of building a world for his characters. He has the right amount of tension and just enough comic relief to keep me reading. And not enough editing errors that the reader can recall them or be bothered by them.

    Read Both Series for Full Enjoyment I’m thoroughly enjoying both the Aldoran Chronicles and Street Rats of Aramoor series. Rarely do you get to know main characters backgrounds in such detail, which furthers humanizes them to the reader. At the same time allowing the reader to connect to them at a different level. I’m looking forward to your next novels for each one of them.

    4.5 stars. Great adventure with non stop action. It is fun to see Ayrion slowly developing into the character we know from the white tower. This book has a lot more humor than the last installment, which was very much appreciated!

    Another exciting read. I think this is a trilogy but I would like one more book to bridge the gap between the Aldorian Chronicles. Nice to see how Aryion grew up. He has a heart of gold but a penchant for trouble.

    Good Read. Good yarn. Author is getting better each time out. There is room for another arc for these characters and enough plotlines to spin a few off. Looking forward nto see what comes next.

    The first half of this book didn’t feel believable. But I’d liked the first book, and this was earnestly told with enough heart to have me continue. The second half was less believable, if you don’t infer motives not explicitly stated, but I didn’t care.
