Publisher's Summary

"Steeped in a wealth of brooding Slavic folklore, Thrice is a deeply personal story of a reluctant father and the mysterious child in his care. It beautifully weaves a tale of personal survival with a much grander narrative of ill-fated bargains and dangerous magic of the past to tell a story that's both intimate and epic." (Graham McNeill, A Thousand Sons)

Forced out on the road with the boy left in his care, Jovan determines to journey into the cave of the bear — to seek out those that would do him and his boy harm.

It is the boy and his bottomless well of soul-searing magic that they seek.

They would do anything to exploit it.

And Jovan would do anything to stop them.

Thrice is the first book in the Needle and Leaf series. Read by the author.

A fantastic tale

Thrice is a nice quick read that is exciting and entertaining. It has a very interesting story with a magic system that is well explained and thought out. There are many characters that readers will begin to love and enjoy the journey that they are forced to undertake. I found that this was a great breath of fresh air, thrilling, exciting, and intriguing.

The strength of this novel was the characters. There are a variety of them that are very easy to relate to. Jovan and Leaf became instant favorites of mine, the opposites attract type of relationship between mentor and child. The only issue with the characters was me trying to remember the age of Leaf, with the actions that he does, even though the author does an awesome job of making sure that the readers are reminded often. The biggest thing I wanted more of is the world, knowing the magic throughout the rest. This is something that I am sure we will see in the future installations.

Thrice is one that is suitable for all types of readers. It has adventure, revenge, crime syndicates, and a mystery that will keep readers guessing up to the end. I did the audio and the author does a fantastic job of this as well! This is an exciting new series with a ton of potential and promise!!

Thanks for taking the time to read my review. As always, happy reading and Stay Great!!

Well written fantasy journey

I really enjoyed this book. The narrator did a great job with the character voices, which added a richness to experiencing this story in audio. I found myself thinking about the characters and what would happen next in the story while not listening. I loved how the magic system was slowly introduced and revealed. It was great to get a little tantalizing taste and wonder what else the magic could do. It left me wanting to keep reading to discover more about it. For such a short fantasy story, I thought there was a great amount of world-building, yet it refreshingly did not bog down the story. I can’t wait to read more by this author. He has a new series coming out soon.

Atmospheric fantasy with heart

I went into this book mostly blind and I'm so glad I did.

We follow Jovan and his charge Leaf, a young boy he loves like his own as they leave their home after Jovan is sent away after from their home and threats surround them on all sides.

The thing I loved most about this book was the atmosphere Meredith created. The Slavic folklore gave me Winternight Trilogy vibes with a bit of Vikings danger. There are plenty of twists and turns, some I saw coming, some I didn't.

My close second favourite thing was Jovan. He is not at all a man you would think someone would entrust a child to, but he is through and through a good man and the relationship between him and the wise-beyond-his-years sweet Leaf.

It is an extremely quick read. I read along with the audiobook which the author does a fantastic job of narrating. The voices are clear to distinguish between characters and it enhanced the experience.

This reads as a complete story/standalone but I really hope there is more of this series coming soon. I can't wait to read more and see what is instore for Leaf as he grows and find out more about the magic of this world
