An amazing book should transport a reader into an entirely new world. There should be a full plot with characters that are engaging and well developed, plus the characters need to virtually jump from the pages of the story. Whenever TJ Klune writes a story, this is what the reader gets. They get a story in which the characters are passionate, well-developed and utterly engaging. The stories, no matter what genre they fall into, are always vivid and captivating. In the Lightning-Struck Heart, TJ has once more hit all of the marks and even surpassed them.
While this story may not appeal to everyone, it is epic in all of the right ways. There is adventure, humor and romance, plus an amazing fantasy world that draws the reader in. Hands down one of the most amazing aspects of this book is the way the humor and angst blend so perfectly to create a flawless plot with highs and lows.
There is a wizard who seems to always wind up in trouble, a Knight who is so much more than he seems, a hornless gay unicorn who is super sassy, a giant, a wizard and family. Sam is from the slums and when he randomly turns some punk teens into stone, this changes his life in ways that even he could never dream of. While Sam may have risen from harsh circumstances, he has never forgotten where he came from and he is not ashamed of his past. As he grows his family to include all of the people he cares about, the one thing he cannot have is the one person he wants the most. When trouble befalls the prince and Sam is sent on a quest with his friends and the knight he cannot have, his entire world gets turned upside down.
TJ Klune is back with a vengeance in this latest offering. The Lightning Struck Heart is an epic tale of wizardry, humor and love. This book is perfect from start to finish and will leave a reader laughing until they cry. Upon finishing the book, the only question left is when does the next book about this cast of characters come out and will Gary the hornless unicorn ever get his horn back? Well, maybe those are not the only questions, but they are the most pressing.
