Ross M. Kitson is a writer after my own heart, telling Epic Fantasy the way it's meant to be told. And if his Art can be defined in a word, I'd call it Intensity. While reading his work, I eat when I absolutely must, rush to the toilet when the bladder can't take it anymore. Otherwise, I'm thoroughly entranced by his world. That's a wonderful and powerful thing.

DARKNESS RISING: QUEST continues the excellence firmly established in CHAINED. It's an exciting, heart-pounding ride, full of depth and complexity; a dynamic tapestry of superb characterization and world building with profound insights into the human heart. The quality of his narrative is consistently high, lyrical, and beautifully poetic. Many scenes are nothing less than exceptional, gritty and visceral, while the mysterious thespian assassin is pure genius.

It's not all battle and war, however. There is deep, rich, belly-wrenching laughter; ego and foolishness; living minds facing the razor's edge of ecstasy and oblivion; love for life transcending all time and humanity; rotting flotsam floating in lazy, scummy water; and bird s*** spattered on a tin roof in the rain.

One aspect of a great book is how it makes you feel while you're reading it. A second aspect is how it makes you feel days, even weeks, later, thinking of the characters, and missing them. They inevitably become a part of who you are, bonded to your soul.

I can't heap enough praise on the PRISM series because it's all deserved. It's fully earned. Each page is a new rush of tension, mystery, and adrenaline. It ranks as some of the best that the genre of fantasy has ever produced. That's no exaggeration, and I unreservedly invite you to experience it for yourself. After all, for you and me it's easy, as Mr. Kitson has done all of the insanely difficult work. All we have to do is sit back and enjoy it.

I really enjoyed Darkness Rising, Book 1 (Chained), so I was thrilled to see that Ross had written another book. The author's meticulous world building captured my attention straight away. However, some writers can world build but when it comes to story, the reader is left wanting. Not so in this case.

Emelia, the main character, is likable and very human. Although she has certain powers and voices in her head (and she does a great job of handling a sword) she experiences a depth and range of emotions that made me relate to her from the start.

There is plenty of action in Book 2. Kitson describes the sword fights and magic duels perfectly; they interlace into the story and character development. He also balances events with dialogue. It's not a "silent" story - the characters constantly interact and chat; of course there is plenty of metal ringing against metal as well.

I realized just how great a book this was in a chapter about Alred, who investigates the truth about a vampyr. As he passes through a dance, he hears the lyrics of a song called the Silver Lady of the Bridge. The haunting melody contrasts with the shocking horror that Alred confronts, and the author weaves both throughout that scene. When I read that, I saw that Kitson is a rare and wonderful writer; a real talent in the epic fantasy genre.

So there is plenty of classic action, but the fantasy has a solid base in humanity. As in Game of Thrones, I cared about the characters : about Emelia's confused feelings for Jem, for Alred's quest, and even for the villains in the piece.

I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkness Rising: Quest 10 Aug. 2014
By Eric S - Published on Amazon.com

A world so complex that anything less than a lengthy series wouldn't do it justice. Emelia and her cohorts embark, somewhat reluctantly, upon a quest that may well decide the fate of all in their realm. Dark forces have arisen and seek to regain their former prominence by reassembling an ancient artifact of immense power. Few are aware of evil's exploits, and fewer still are poised to challenge them.

Written with flair and humor, this is altogether engrossing material and anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre is sure to be quickly hooked. There are many twists, turns and odd alliances along the way. The forces are aligning for what is sure to be an epic contest. Off to buy book three.
