She spent most of her life being a thief until she tried to steal from Safreon, the original vigilante. These two team up to help keep the Warrens safe for normal people to live. [...]

    2. Fairly well written. Kept me coming back to read more. Could have used some editing, I can see many of the same issues I'm struggling with as I write my first works of fiction with telling where the story would have been even better if she had shown. Given how good it was as is this is an author to watch as she polishes her craft. The main characters were well written. the plot is great, lots of interesting and unusual twists and turns. In the end I loved how she used italics for flashbacks once [...]

    3. Indy author B. Throwsnaill has written a tale that is full of great characters, fantastic adventures with a riveting plot. This was the best .99 that I have spent in a long while! When the tale begins, Hemlock’s sister lies helplessly ill. The magic that might save her is fading. Hemlock fears that the wizards in the Tower have somehow siphoned off the magic that once infused the Warrens. Accordingly, she sets out to discover what has happened. Using her special power to sense magic, she succe [...]

    4. Hemlock and the Wizard Tower follows the exploits of a talented thief, Hemlock, living on a magic-laden world controlled by the all powerful Wizard Guild. Sneaking into the heart of their operation, the Wizard Tower, Hemlock attempts to learn why the magic that normally would help her sister has recently been failing. Blaming the wizards (wizards be damned!), she uses all her extraordinary skills to infiltrate the Tower, something no one has ever been successful in accomplishing. With the aid of [...]

    5. (This book got a 2.5 rather than a 2 on my blog, but it translates to this rating here on GR.)I must be, like, the hardest reader on the planet to please. I know that part of it is that I cannot separate the writer in me from the reader in me when I see problems with the writing. I try. I want to just lose myself. Sometimes I have, but sometimes things just bug me and I can't let them go. But I'm led to write a not-so-great review on a story many others seem to find awesome.Let me start out by s [...]

    6. Hemlock and the Wizard Tower is the story of a talented thief's ability to infiltrate and overcome the Wizard Guild's regulation of everyday magic so that once again magic that was used for good and to help others can do so again.Hemlock uses her special power to battle her way through the tower with the aid of some unusual characters to try and succeed and attempt to save her sister.It took me a couple of chapters to get into this story but once I did I enjoyed the journey watching Hemlock chan [...]

    7. I usually avoid stories which focus on magic. I don't know why exactly I prefer the sword in Sword and Sorcery I guess. After reading the sample from I decided to read the all things (the book was free, which help). I loved the book. The writing style is easy-to-read and detailed, the imagination of the author as to be commended; it's wild, complex, refreshing and completely interesting. But what I prefer was that it was always in the service of the story, nothing was just for show or to wow us [...]

    8. Hemlock was in a bind. Her sister, Mercuria, was in pain from a stomach ailment that could only be healed by magic. But the magic wasn't working because the wizards that rule the city were limiting the magic the citizens could have With Mercuria getting worse by the day, Hemlock makes a decision that will have ramifications for everyone in The City and beyond.This was a really good read. The first half of the book was great. Hemlock's breaking into the Tower was great. Very fast paced.I did have [...]

    9. This book draaaaaaaaaagged. Too long, which could have been avoided if the writer hadn't explained every single twitch and step of every character. Too much minutia. Characters could have been interesting, but everything was explained through narrative rather than action. Speaking of action, there could have been a lot more in this book. The only thing that broke up the monotony would be when the author threw in another random character. I would've given up reading if not for my innate stubborne [...]

    10. Well written and entertaining. There are a few grammar and punctuation errors which detract from the story, as well an an irritating overuse of the word 'that'. Should the author do an edit to fix these issues, the tale would flow much better instead of bogging down constantly. There is a bit too much telling rather than showing, but on the whole a good effort. I found myself having trouble liking the characters, but then again I have never been partial to female leads - that's just me.I will ke [...]

    11. B. Throwsnaill has, aside from one of the coolest names in literature, a singular mind for the fantastical and complex.

    12. I really did not like this book. It was not well written, I couldn't even make myself finish it with just a couple of chapters until the end.

    13. I got most of the way through but didn't bother to finish it. The author couldn't keep my interest so I moved on to other books.

    14. a nice read, it felt a bit long winded. it wasn't a bad book I just didn't get into it, but I didn't dislike it enough not to give the second one a try.

    15. Really good read. Has taken a few weeks and at times difficult to put down!The story surrounds the central character Hemlock, her relationship with the characters as they are introduced, and magic.
