Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have the sequel handy: story gets more addictive as it goes Fantasy is a fairly new genre for me to read but if this book and its sequel are any indication, I’ll likely be reading more of it in the future. The world depicted in the story is so well thought out and frighteningly believable, it’s easy to be immersed in. I was relieved to have the sequel close at hand when I began this book because the nearer I got to the end, the more addictive it became. In places it reminded me of the Xena and Game of Thrones TV series, and Lord of the Rings movies, but overall, it’s an original story with familiar themes that are freakishly similar to modern day, despite the story being populated with elves, dragons, humans, dwarves, magic users, beasts of all kinds, among others. Discrimination, corruption, the thirst for power regardless of its cost, greed are all covered here and presented in a multi-kingdom realm where some characters speak in a language that reads like an older form of English than what is spoken today. Those portions of dialogue are florid by comparison but still easily read and understood; it forced me to read the story slower than I normally read modern day English and as a result heightened the atmosphere and made it that much more clear that this setting is a different world and time, one that is plentiful in violence, loyalty and heroes. The violence is graphic but necessary and not gratuitous and there is humor to offset it so the story is not wholly dystopian in mood. There are plenty of amazing and strong characters to root for as there are villains to cheer against; the politics at play are complex and often devious which sets up conflicts and characters seeking revenge for various reasons. If you’re okay with some graphic violence and want to read some strong female characters and gratifying relationships blossoming in dire circumstances, give this story a try and if by the halfway mark you’re enjoying the story be sure to have the sequel at hand to continue the story without a gap in reading. This is not a standalone read and neither is the sequel, Banshee’s Vengeance, but both are very satisfying reads for the characters, their relationships, and the journeys they take in the course of the books. There were typos in the book and although there were more than a few, they did not pull me out of the story or my enjoyment of it. Also the map of the kingdoms at the beginning of the book could have been larger and taken up an entire page for easier reading and reference.
