MICHAEL WISEHART graduated with honors in Business Accounting, but instead of pursuing this field, he returned to school to study film. He spent the next several years honing his visual craft, which he put to good use as he took what he’d learned behind the camera and applied it to the written word.

On April 14, 2014, Michael opened his laptop and began typing what would become two multiple award-winning series: The Aldoran Chronicles, and Street Rats of Aramoor (both set within the same world, but twenty years apart). By the time his second book released, he had quit his day job, walking away from production altogether, to pursue his writing career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow Burn Epic With An Amazing Cast
Reviewed in the United States on October 13, 2019
So far, The Aldoran Chronicles is the perfect slow burn epic. Before reading this I felt like The White Tower was a giant prologue (in a good way), and I expected the pace to increase in book 2. - I figured Ferrin would make it to Easthaven pretty early on, & connect with the characters there I was wrong, but also in a good way. Wisehart took what could've been my biggest disappointment with the book & turned that thread of the story into my favorite.
I've read a mega ton of fantasy series, with lots pace variation in them, some seem to go by too fast, some too slow. When it comes to the slow variety I feel like there's 2 main ways it goes wrong, nothings happening, or a ton of bs is happening. Wisehart has this seriously perfect slow pace, the defiler didn't jump out from behind a corner, and the plot didn't feel stretched out.

The balance between viewpoints is really awesome -It's comparable to how far flung characters can be in ASOIAF. -But where some series were originally intended to be a trilogy – then stretched, Wisehart has planned for the long haul with The Aldoran Chronicles.

Characters: I found myself liking Kira even more, her "we run these streets" speech & her interactions with the queen were particularly great. But where some characters just furthered an opinion I already held, like with Kira, my mind was changed with others. My favorite Easthaven council member was easily Orlyn in Book 1 & was surprised to find that at the end of this book it was Feoldor, lol. Another example would be Aiden's turn of character at the end of The White Tower –laughed out loud pretty good at him wanting to duel Ty to the death over Lyessa in Plague. I was also worried about Aryion loosing his memory, but with the flash backs felt better, because it seems like he won't be lost for too long. He's also still a bad ass, & that helped. I felt like I might've enjoyed his thread a little more with some comic relief accompanying him, but that might just be an influence of the amount of lighthearted fantasy I've been reading lately.

Plenty of people in reviews talked about how long it took to write this book, but the delay was professionally editing & re-releasing The White Tower. Doesn't it make sense Wisehart wanted to get Book 1 straightened out before writing the next 9 or however many this series runs? Not to mention, the prequel to The White Tower, The prequel/spin off series- Street Rats, and the Aramoor Market all happened in between! How many other fantasy authors can you name who put out 5 books of a similar caliber in 3 years? It's not a long list.

Bottom line, this series is a must read!
