Argren Blue: A Spring Song Story by Ross Hightower and Deb Heim is an epic fantasy that follows the story of incredibly complex protagonists. When Alar joined the resistance, he dreamed of overthrowing the deviant Empire and its iron fist rule. However, the rebels weren’t able to make an impact, or so he thought. Things took a strange turn when an imperial witch approached their group to help rescue a prisoner - at which they succeeded. Although Alar questioned the effectiveness of their resistance group, he discovered that he had powers he never anticipated. In contrast, Harold Wolfe was approached by an inquisitor to locate the rebel group and report back. Alienated and ridiculed all his life, Harold had no idea why the imperial government was so agreeable all of a sudden. Spurred on by his desire to prove himself, Harold went full steam ahead. He had no idea that he was entangled in a web of lies and deceit. Both Harold and Alar had a challenging path ahead. What would they do and would they survive?
Argren Blue by Ross Hightower and Deb Heim was the perfect story for me to read over a week and pore over every aspect of it. The book is 45 chapters long, and it still wasn’t enough for me. I loved the thrill Alar felt when he discovered his powers and when he started perfecting them. Harold also gained confidence and accepted his position and destiny to become a powerful character. I sometimes felt sorry for Harold, but it was necessary for his development. I truly appreciated the pace of the story and the length of the chapters. There were plenty of characters to keep track of, and the pace helped with that. The imagery was perfect, the dialogue was fantastic, and the overall feel of the story was incredible. The action was relentless, and the plot was excellent. The ending made me feel as if the authors are planning a sequel, and if so I, cannot wait for what comes next.
