The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): King of the Caves I loved this book. All of the characters were relatable. I was excited to meet the King of the Caves.
The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): I knew for sure when you introduced the locusts To all potential readers, this author is a novice art the art of projection. I firmly believe he tries to communicate his allegiance to the order of Nymrod in hopes of gaining success like Robert Jordan. He's a deceiver like Sanderson, he made his intents obvious when he described the evil locusts in his story as looking almost identical to the locusts God uses to judge the wicked in the book of revelation. Look at his profile picture and ask God to show you his essence.

The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): Understanding why Good vs evil story. I enjoyed the characters and the storyline but I started getting bored with this book and I am not sure why. The young monks always seem lost in their minds constituents to turn next. I was getting tired of waiting until they figure what's next.

The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): An Exciting Story and a Good Read When their monastery is destroyed and their ancient treasure stolen, Kurian and his friends, Rhys and Tobin, are tasked with the challenge of retrieving their treasure which puts them on a collision course with the despot, Lord Evasius, and his right hand man, Captain Fallon.As the story progresses, the three meet the King of the Caves and the Christian underpinnings of the story come clear. Though they expect the King of the Caves to be a bandit, they find something entirely different.The pacing is smooth, and the characters rounded. Elements of miracles are juxtaposed against a background of dark magic and witchcraft and a few gruesome moments.I enjoyed the way Kurian’s character matured and grew while maintaining a humble, compassionate nature. If you like your fantasy with a generous dose of Christian imagery, this book should be a delight. And even if you don’t seek out the Christian elements, this is an exciting story and a good read.
The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): I liked this at first I liked this story at first, but if I remember rightly, it had a cuss word in it. Since I don't read stories with cussing in them I didn't finish.

The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): A Great Christian Allegory While very well written, the book starts off a bit slow. Once the main character come into contact with King of the Caves, the Christian allegory becomes apparent. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series to come out!

The Author has done a great read. I highly recommend this read.Shauna Joesten
The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): Great Book Loved this book. It transported you into a magical world of adventure, struggle, passion and imagination. Can't wait for the next one to come out.
The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): Really good start! The Treasure of Capric was quite the interesting read. It was a book that I really had no idea what it would be about coming into it. The story was engaging and very fit for many audiences. It is a story that could be read by just about any age (12+).Very quickly you are thrust into a familiar world. I really got a feeling that I was in a world akin to Elan from Michael J Sullivan's Riyria books. This world, however, is very bleak and grey. There is no sunlight, the fields are fallow, the people are lost, old, and without hope. The author paints a beautiful picture of what life is like when people fall out of faith and feel there is nothing left for them. They drudge on in life with no purpose and wither away.The story follows three monks who are dubbed, the Deer, the Brute, and the Princely Son. These three embark on a journey to recover a stolen treasure that their Order is supposed to have been guarding for centuries but has somehow been stolen. They've never seen the treasure or know what it is about, they just know, as they've been told, that it is important and what their mission in the Order is all about. The three monks are expertly complimentary of each other and fit in like puzzle pieces. Kurian is the all around character with characteristics that you love, Rhys is the big brute, all about fighting and protecting those he loves and thinks diplomacy is something best dealt with by the sword, and then there's Tobin who is a critical thinker, one who has the answers to everything and acts as more of a counselor. Each character goes through a discovery process on their own through their faith. I really got the sense that this was not just a journey to find the treasure but a journey of faith.The one and only part of this book that I didn't like was the treasure. It felt like something was missing. I didn't think the treasure would be something of immense monetary value like a golden crown or a pot of gold, however, to find out what the treasure actually was left me disappointed. Maybe it is because I'm used to other fantasy novels having something that felt immensely important to the story but this just did not leave me with that feeling.Even still with that one part I did not care for I highly enjoyed the book. I would move on to the second in the series whenever it gets released. I think the story arc has a lot going for it and if the author plays his cards correctly we could end up with a really great series.I received this book as a ARC. I decided independently to leave an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

The Treasure of Capric (1) (The King of the Caves): Exciting Story! I've always enjoyed a good fantasy, but few have so captivated me and keep me reading without all the breaks that some of the more classic fantasies have in the past. This one is a satisfying read and one that has plenty of world-building and complex characters, but also has a fast pace and easy to read style that makes the story flow smoothly and without info-dumps or lags that are common in similar stories.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
