It’s been a long time since I read a fantasy novel. I read so many that I had become tired of the genre.
However, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m really looking forward to the next one. The characters are well illustrated and the story is expertly woven to draw the reader into the world that the author paints.
The world this story takes place in is brought to life with the eloquent and flowing style of the author making for an easy and enjoyable read. The characters are all interesting and the story itself is a real page-turner.
A solid, well written novel. The opening sequence grips from the start and draws you into an epic, fast flowing tale of heroism and deceit. The author creates a world where heroes and gods intertwine beautifully. I found this book thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. A surprising end which left me looking forward to the follow on tales.
A very thoughtful and interesting read. The book has a gripping plot which carries you along and encourages page turning but is much more than that. Different layers gradually appear leading you to question your ideas and initial beliefs. I like fantasy books but I can see that this would also appeal to a wider audience.
