    One thought on “The Arrival”

    1. This novel is by far one of the best fantasy novels I've read in a while. The story line is well written with twist and turns at each corner. I loved the multiple points of view given by different characters in different situations. The view points show different perspectives on situations that all contribute to the plot. Usually when there are different view points in a novel one view seems off or not fully developed. This isn't the case with this novel at all. All of the characters points of v [...]

    2. I won this book in a competition, and since it was an e-book, I've only just got around to reading it. Since it was free, I didn't have high hopes for it.

All the characters in the book have grown up in this world, so unlike Harry Potter, don't need anything explained to them. That's what lets it down a little I think. I ne [...]

    3. I met Dakota Kemp for his book signing at the Plains Pioneer Museum in Woodward OK. I'm always excited about young local talent pursuing their dreams. This book was surprising.

AND he succeeded! He wove a very unique story out of the modge-podge mix. My only problem w [...]

    4. The Arrival by Dakota Kemp was an excellent read. Once I was introduced to all the characters, who were all well fleshed out and easy to relate to, I was ready for action. And Kemp delivered. The story plot is well thought out and it twisted and turned in every direction, keeping me and the characters all on our toes. Among the hoard of characters, I picked out a couple of favorites, and I was constantly laughing at them, rooting for them, and screaming at them throughout the whole duration of t [...]
