    *I was sent a free digital copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review*I failed I just couldn't with this anymore. Neither me nor the little one were interested in this very slow moving and wordy/over descriptive book. DNF at 60%

    ** I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. **So first of all my thanks go to J.T. Cope IV! Thanks a lot for giving me the opportunity to dive into the world of Countryside. It was an enjoyable and entertaining ride! This said, I’m heading straight to my review! So let the fun begin! ;-)It’s been a long time I last read a fantasy book and if I’m entirely honest it was actually kind of refreshing to read something different for a change. I know this book is sup [...]

    *I received a digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*Review en español en mi blog: backstreetbooksblog.wordpress"Countryside" is a story that surprised me in the nicest way. The book's main audience is children between the age of 9 to 12 but honestly, anyone who enjoys a great magical story could love it.With a prophecy, a lost book, dark creatures and a 10 year old boy who discovers a wonderful world of light and shadows, J.T. Cope IV gives us something wor [...]

    ** I received a free electronic version of this book in exchange for an honest review. **I first read the prologue of this book several months ago but it was so confusing and contained so many different names (I counted 12) in just a few pages that didn't really make me want to read more.I only picked it up again after some time and decided to give it a second chance seeing as I had agreed to review it.I'm afraid it didn't captivate me the second time around either. The author had actually conta [...]

    First posted here: kailynkausen.wordpress/20Full review below:3/5 starsI received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.I started this book a long time ago, like several months ago, but school got in the way, making it so I could, at most, read only a chapter a day which absolutely sucks. I hate reading that way. I would rather not read for a week and then get to spend an entire day reading. All of this ten pages here, ten pages there business doesn't work for me. Anyways, b [...]

    * J.T. Cope IV generously sent me a digital copy of this book for free in exchange of an honest review. He was kind enough to sent me 3 different formats of the ebook in order for me to choose the one that served me better and for that I am really thankful :) * But without further ado let's talk about "Countryside: The Book of the Wise"! I want to give this book 3.8/5 stars. I really enjoyed the mysterious world of Countryside and the concept of the Holdings and the Flame. I loved how J.T. Cope [...]

    The first novel by its writer, I find it well designed and its story is really interesting. It is totally recommended for fans of Percy Jackson (things my dear boy are not as you thought they were) and Narnia (mother nature) and of course for any fans of magic!!! I just found some parts of it a bit slow I am a huge fan of fantasy, though for the time I prefer something more realistic. However, it's a great adventure for young readers!!!

    **I was sent a free digital copy of this book by the author via in return for an honest review**Yes, as some reviewers have said, this was a little slow to start and a little slow throughout in places. But, as this is the first installment in a series, then that is perfectly understandable as the author is setting up characters and back stories and history with a nicely descriptive flair. Plus, where it was slow it still wasn't boring. It held my interest throughout, even though it is obviously [...]

    I really liked this book. The author J.T. Cope reached out to me and asked if I would read this book in exchange for an honest review and I jumped at the chance. As I started to read, I was not sure how I was going to like the book. It starts out a bit confusing and slow. The confusion is cleared up as you read and the book picks up speed rather quickly. I like this little pocket universe world that Mr. Cope has created. It has that Narnia meets Fablehaven sort of feel to me. I was rather impres [...]

    RATING: ★★★☆☆ / 3 age appropriate stars!REVIEW: I don't normally read middle-grade books so as I was making my through the first Countryside book, I was of two minds: Would I buy this for an 11 year-old as a gift? And, Would this also capture the attention of an adult, is it versatile?Anytime I read something that isn't necessarily in my age range, I always think in terms of who would enjoy this, who can I recommend it to or buy it for? That's just how my brain works. Countryside is th [...]

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book. This is a great middle grade fantasy book that is great for people who enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia, Fablehaven, Percy Jackson, or The Harry Potter series. I personally enjoyed all of those series so this was the perfect book for me. One thing that I really enjoyed about this story was the setting. Countryside is such a magical and beautiful place to read about. J.T. Cope did a great job at writing a wa [...]

    I received a free digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review!I actually very much enjoyed this middle grade novel; the author contacted me here on and pitched it as a novel reminiscent of Percy Jackson and The Chronicles of Narnia. While I definitely see the comparison this story is definitely its own thing with an incredibly interesting magic system and delightful characters to root for.The magic in this world consists of something called disciplines that are es [...]

    I received Countryside : The Book of the Wise, book 1 in the series from the author in return for an honest review. So first off all, I wanted to start this review by saying a huge thank you to J.T. Cope for being such an amazing and kind author!I’ve seen a lot of comments and reviews on how this book is like Narnia, Percy Jackson, or even Harry Potter and now I totally get it why! There is definitely some magical vibes in this book, so yes I really enjoyed reading it even though it is a middl [...]

    Preview:**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**There were some things I loved about this book, and some things that I hope to see developed in the subsequent ones. However, to be fair, it’s aimed at quite a younger audience than myself. My nieces, 9 and 11, would most likely enjoy it very much!Characters:Luke is a wonderful young man. He’s polite and respectful, and takes the right type of action when faced with injustice or bullying. However, he doesn’t activel [...]

    Exposition is one of the toughest challenges an author faces. Getting all that necessary information across while keeping the story moving is a real juggling act. When you write in the “Normal child finds out he’s not so normal” genre, you have to be doubly careful.Why?First you must clue us in on the “normal” world the main character starts in. Then, just when that’s done, the action moves to the magical world, and the description starts all over again. Sure, the magical world is a [...]

    [I received a free copy of the E-Book from the author in exchange for an honest review]Firstly, my thanks to J.T. Cope for giving me the opportunity to read this story. I have not read any middle grade in a long time other than Rick Riordan’s newest books, and I think this has lessen my enjoyment of this. If I was younger, or I was reading more middle grade, I think I will have given this a five star. However, I still really enjoyed the world he created and love Luke and his friends. This book [...]

    I received Countryside from the author in return for an honest review. There were parts of the book that I really enjoyed, and other parts that I just skimmed through. I thought many of the football details could have been edited down some, but football doesn't interest me. However, the football details will probably keep most middle school boys reading. I also felt that the book would have benefited from more character development and editing. However, I liked the premise of the book. The story [...]

    4 DAYS TO READ. That should give you an idea of how good the book was. The only thing that caught in my craw was the constant reminder that Texans wear jeans. Maybe to most, that wont be an issue. The ending left me wanting to purchase the second book right then and their but I'll wait at least until the morning. Too much is still unknown and left to be read about in the next book. This is a good thing. I don't like a book that needs to rush. Great character build up. The details about the setti [...]

    The author of the book was quite courteous and sent me an e-book version in return for an honest review. I would like to thank Mr. Cope for sending me this book. I thought this book was very creative and is certainly appropriate for the audience to who it is aimed. I liked the action and adventure elements in the book and thought it was interesting. The book itself was hard to follow in some parts. The prologue was a bit confusing and it took me a while to understand, but as the book progressed [...]

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.The author reached out to me because I have been working through the Percy Jackson series (at the behest of my students). As a general rule, I actually don't read much fantasy, especially young adult fantasy. This book was a pleasant surprise. It started off slow as it introduced you to a world. But once the story settled into its self, it was paced well. It had a good magical system that relied on disciplines -- which is always some [...]

    I really enjoyed this book. It reminds me a bit of Fablehaven but it has a whole world of its own. I love how it is a wonderful adventure and doesn’t have anything that I wouldn’t want my children reading. I am looking forward to reading the next one!

    This book was such a treat for me! I enjoyed everything about it!Every once in a while I need something magical to read and this was a good addition to my shelves. The thing I liked the most was the way J.T. explained stuff, everything had a reason why it happened. I think it's important that kids read books that give good advices, as a child I learned the most from my books and I'm happy that there are this kind of books. I'll gladly offer this series to my relatives, doesn't matter who reads i [...]

    overall I enjoyed the premise of the story, but the book needs to be more streamlined to 'get to the point' faster. i loved the setting of countryside, it reminded me a lot of hogwarts, which was nostalgic. full RTC

    **The author sent me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**To begin, I debated between a 3 and 4 star rating. I ultimately chose the 4 stars because that's probably what an eleven year old version of myself would have rated the book, and that's the intended audience.As a young reader, I loved anything fantastic with extra points if it was also relatable. Countryside: The Book of the Wise establishes that it's fantastic in the prologue goes out of its way to be relatable in t [...]

    *I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.First, let me just say that although I get why a lot of books are advertised as ‘a mix of’ or ‘the new’ Harry Potter, Narnia or Percy Jackson (duh, sales), it almost inevitably leads to disappointment. Let’s be honest: those who have loved Harry Potter and Narnia will probably not love that other book as much because it just isn’t Harry Potter or Narnia. That being said: I tried to have an open mind towards this b [...]

    I was sent a free digital copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.Overall, I enjoyed this book. The author did a masterful job of wedding fantasy elements into a contemporary setting. By the end of the book, I wanted to know what happens next in Luke's adventures. The challenge in reviewing this book is reading it with its target audience in mind. Some of the elements that grated on my a bit, affected me as an adult reader, and so I felt the need to set those aspects of th [...]

    This is a great book, aimed at middle grades, but enjoyable for adult readers. It centers around a young boy, and his adventures in a somewhat magical community in Texas, that may be perceptible only to initiates, although that is never explicitly stated. The Holding, as they call their world, has elements of both Narnia and Harry Potter, in its magical appearance and mystical creatures, but exists within modern Texas as the rest of us know it.When we first meet Luke at home in Houston, he is te [...]

    **I was sent a free digital copy of this book by the author via in return for an honest review**This story is about a young city boy whose life changes when he is saved by a dryad, challenged by evil men, and charged to find a mysterious book that determines the fate of the world. He and his family quickly move to their grandpa's estate in Countryside where he discovers more about the mysteries of light and dark. Because of so many parallels, I was constantly reminded of another book about a bo [...]

    I received an e-book copy of this book from the author, in exchange for a fair and honest review. So, here goes!Initially, I felt as though I had stumbled into a sequel, without the back story necessary to make sense of it. I was also put off by the sheer amount of superfluous dialogue. In all honesty, if I hadn't committed to reviewing this work, I probably wouldn't have made it much past the second chapter. But thank goodness for that commitment! Around Chapter 4, it started to settle into a s [...]
