    1 thought on “The Castrofax”

    1. Another free e-book to read on planes. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have re-read parts of it multiple times. I docked one star off because of annoying spelling and grammar errors but they are easy enough to ignore.The characters are well described and none of them have improbable personalities. They are complex and show ranges of emotions. Even the figures of authority are shown to be unsure and imperfect, as all humans are.The plot is engaging and exciting. It drags the readers along an e [...]

    2. "A brilliant admirable story with excellent plot twists & turns."When I read the first & second chapters of the book, I felt like the story doesn't fit me well. So, I gave up reading twice. After few days, I decided to give it another chance for the third time. However, I was finished the first, second chapters & continued my reading to the third chapter of the book. When I'm continued the reading furthermore, I was excited with the sudden realization of the book as a very interestin [...]

    3. A great fantastic read cI loved this book. I love this author. This novel is well written in the style of Mercedes Lackey. Honestly, the characters and thread surpass my imagination. This is not a "formula" writing. There are great twists and turns to the story. The characters are well developed. I look forward to the next installment.

    4. Good adventureA true adventure. Young people coming of age, unique powers, villains out of time. A nice setting for the start of a fantasy series.

    5. Jenna Van Vleet is a born storyteller. If you like fantasy, action and romance, you will love this series.

    6. Must readExcellent read. Ready for next book. Don't know how long author has been around, hope she has more stories out there.

    7. I REALLY Liked This BookA fantastic first in a series. When I finish this review I'm buying the next!The concept is ingenious. Instead of people with special powers (Mages) coming to power and controlling the weak normals, the once nearly invisible have gradually bred themselves down. Where a Class 10 with 5 skills was once the most powerful, now a Class 6 with 2 skills is the head of the Mage Council. The escape of a renegade 10 from the Third Age threatens the downfall of civilization. The ind [...]

    8. There's no ending Enjoyable fantasy book but it has no ending. It seems like it was cut into multiple books arbitrarily. Now I need the next book I guess.

    9. This story follows Gabriel and Robyn(the hidden princess) as they fight their way to the throne. Gabriel is an extremely powerful mage who can control all the elements which no person has been able to do in a VERY long time. He hides this ability from the Mage Council but allows some of his abilities to be known to gain a higher standing in the mage world. Only a few select people actually know the truth. Well, Robyn grows up alongside Gabriel and the time has come to regain her throne from her [...]

    10. This book was completely unsatisfactory. Don't get me wrong, the idea was interesting and the plot was alright. There are these people that can control elements (earth, water, fire, air, spirit) and there is only one young man that can master almost all of the elements. He is accompanied by a girl and patially her brother and the girl eventually falls for him. There is one man out on a witchhunt for the Avata-er Class Ten Mage. *cough, cough* Avatar: the Last Airbender. Excuse me. Anywho, the ma [...]

    11. This is probably a 2.5 star book rather than a 3 star.It ends REALLY abruptly. In my mind, it's not even a cliff hanger. The story just stops and you're left for book #2.It could have also used some editing. There's a difference between "conscious" and "conscience", for example. Also, "ingage" should be "engage" and "shuttered" and "shuddered" have pretty different meanings. And those are just the ones I recall.I like the idea of female rulers, descent through the female line, and chastity pre-m [...]

    12. so much promise, unfulfilledi'll start with the good. contrary to the 1 star rating i've given it, there's quite a bit. the writing style was excellent and engaging. few to no grammar/spelling errors. good pacing, not too slow, not too fast. the characters weren't among the most well-crafted i've ever seen, but they were passable. the world building/premise were very, very goodw the bad. there's only one thing, really, but it's one thing I cannot abide. frequently (constantly) the actions or lac [...]

    13. Not brilliant, it lacked a certain "something", but I still liked it.It might be that the story was a bit rushed, it mught be that the characters seems a bit flat and unrealistic. I can't really put my finger to what it is that's missing. Some parts seems like it should have a story before it happens. Maybe something from the earlier ages to show some of the personality of re-awakened Mage. Maybe a bit more internal dialogue so we get to know the characters.Some of it seems unnatural to the char [...]

    14. Have you ever read a book that started off with a bang, and then fizzled out early on, but you kept plodding on, hoping things would change? That is, unfortunately, what happened to me when I read Jenna Van Vleet’s The Castrofax. Young Gabriel is assigned to protect Princess Robyn, but circumstances intervene and the two of them must fight for their lives. A fairly good start to what has the potential to be a pretty good story of royal intrigue and magic—the kind of book I like reading.There [...]

    15. The magic system was based on familiar themes - elemental forces, hands being important, existence of controlling artifacts - but was still fresh. The good guys and bad guys are clearly pointed out, or at least it seems that way. There's a set-up for a significant conflict and the set-up is interesting to read. I especially enjoyed reading the main villain.What surprised me the most was how much ambiguity there was in the second half of the book. There's a prisoner who's somewhat freely roaming [...]

    16. 4.5 stars really. There were a few editing issues. At times it seemed the author just wanted to use words that sound like they are from another time or place and really did not make sense in the context it was used in. Ryker's "accented" speech was okay, but until you decipher what "ac", "par" and "ne" are supposed to mean, it's kind of a distraction.That said, I liked the premise, the charcters seem to be very well thought out. I certainly became invested in finding out what comes next. So I wi [...]

    17. The beginning of the book was a little hard for me to get into as a lot of the fantasy elements weren't clearly explained until midway through the book. But eventually the story became interesting. As I neared the end I quickly realized this wouldn't conclude. Saddening as it is quite a book. So I debated on finishing the second when I realized that there are 5 or 6 books. Heck no! I need a story to wrap up faster than that. A little sad to not know the final conclusion, but nowhere close to wil [...]

    18. Excitement from the beginningIf you like science fiction books with a lot of action and some romance you will love this book. From start to finish it lives you guessing and wanting more. Which you will get because this the first book of the series. Great writing. Yes there were a few errors in spelling but not enough to make you want to stop reading, only reason I gave this book 4 stars was because of the poor editing which seems to start happening near the end. Again don't let this book pass yo [...]

    19. feels like it should have been one book getting stretched into two. kind of naive to think no one would have offed the Prince before now. weak politics for a royal drama. and weak action scenes that seemed to jump around too much. making it feel choppy and rushed. I'd like to know what happens to the poor sap, but not enough to buy book 2.

    20. Honestly I read it because it was freeI could not put this book down from day one! The landscape and characters are painted across your mind so well that it's easy to get lost in this fantastical new world. The only thing that threw me was the painfully obvious grammar mistakes. All-in-all one of the best self published books I've read.

    21. It was just okay for me - definitely a lot of world and character building. I had a hard time with all of the graphic torture that went on and on and on . . . I did like the characters enough to consider the second book.

    22. An excellent fantasy. I very much enjoyed reading The Castrofax by Jenna Van Fleet! It is well written. The characters are interesting and well fleshed. A new & very interesting world with Queen & princes, magic & mayham. I love it! Cannot wait to read more!

    23. Light quick readUnfortunately, the same old, same old doesn't quite cut the mustard. Characters are pretty simplified, and the plot is definitely held in abeyance for the next book

    24. CliffhangerGood start. Strong characters and storyline, I enjoyed this one and had a hard time stopping to sleep. A bit wordy in some places and some spelling errors but not enough to bother me. Will be reading the next one.

    25. YesThis is an amazing story of magic and mages and love. I have enjoyed the story and look forward to the next book.

    26. I thought the premise and story were great but the end was disjointed and bad. It felt like I had recorded a show on my DVR that fizzled out at the end. Bad form.

    27. Tale for the agesImagine a world where mages are their own race, now add a madman who wishes to destroy that world and you have Castrofax

    28. Good readGood book! Characters are well thought out, story is good with little holes to no plot holes and its fairly funnyhighly recommended to anyone who likes fantasy books.
