Should he bring the baby of the empress back to the emperor, or obey the wishes of his chivalric love, and save the baby, taking it far away? Complicating matters is the fact that the baby appears to be The Chosen One. Quite exciting in parts.

The world is just similar enough to the generic fantasy world to feel familiar, so the reader hits the ground running, but different enough it doesn't seem completely derivative. Oddly, for an apparently paganistic world, the primary struggle is between angels and demons.
These figures seem to serve as an analogue to the pantheons of gods so prominent in the ancient world. All in all, pretty good start for a series. It most resembled a Men's Adventure story set in a magical world. I am most impressed by the beginning of this series, which, in the interest of full disclosure, I did get for free during a giveaway.

That said, I would not have felt slighted for paying full shelf price. This is epic grimdark fantasy at its grimmest, darkest, and yet most heroic. Tyrus is a memorable chief protagonist, tortured by his own immortality and by his duty; slaying anyone who dares to stand before him and his Emperor, be they sorcerer, Rune Blade, or champion. Then a very special chil I am most impressed by the beginning of this series, which, in the interest of full disclosure, I did get for free during a giveaway.
Then a very special child is born to Tyrus' second ward, Ishma, and he is forced by circumstance to betray his first master. He is beset on all sides; distrusted by his new allies, hated by his emperor, and hunted by demon and mortal alike. A heart-racing series, looking forward to the rest of it! I've got to love any story where the author is confident enough in his ability to introduce his own versions of elves and dwarves. Since LOTR, it is probably harder to visualize elves or dwarves looking any different,but Mr Fitzpatrick writes so wonderfully that you see what he wants you to see in your mind's eye.
The characters reveal themselves over the course of the story, as needed, so you have a pretty good idea why they are as they are. We are invited to see the main characters as a whole I've got to love any story where the author is confident enough in his ability to introduce his own versions of elves and dwarves. We are invited to see the main characters as a whole person, not just as good or evil. I reckon if the author wishes to convince me the demons aren't as bad as they seem, then I will probably believe him. I received this novel from Story Cartel in return for an unbiased review.
I was happy to have Book 2 already. Both are a pleasure to read. I received a free copy from author via story cartel. I was first attracted by the amazing cover. I loved the storyline.

At times for me the violence was a bit to graphic. It made rating rhis a bit hard, but in the end I rated this based on the storyline. Some people might disagree on the violence but its just my personal opinion. This was a compelling story! Very character driven.
I found myself thinking about this story even while I wasn't reading and couldn't wait to get back to it when I had a free minute. It was well written and I immediately felt the pull of Tyrus' struggle to reconcile himself with the world he helped create. A fascinating story and I'm looking forward to more. A surprising diamond in the rough. For a first book and self published it's very, very good. Dialogue and story line all move along well characters are likable and true to themselves. I like the use of old biblical names among the angels, and the conversations between the characters.
Imagine what an editor could do with this writer! Aug 11, Charles C Cooper Jr. Interesting Beginnings There's something about the authors style that made getting through the first of the book a little slow. But once I got got use to it the story's pace seemed to pick up. Enjoyed the first book and expect the second to be as good or better. Jan 22, Milan rated it really liked it.

Loved the story, the characters, the mythology. There were some minor issues that I hope will be fixed in the next book. Some of the things were familiar from other sources but it was still a very entertaining read. Tyrus is an excellent character and I can't wait to read more.
Apr 23, Kevin Harrington rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites. Wow what a great read. If you like fantasy at all you will love these 3 books. I am not a writer so I cant write 14 paragraphs on the pros and cons and dissect the authors failures or triumphs. Again, simple review is read these books and I will definitely be adding them to my favorites shelf.

The only potential Take a trip that's a little bit Nancy Drew, a dash Cheech and Chong and, and just enough Streets of San Francisco to make you want to hop on a cable car. A trip to her hometown of San Francisco is meant to lift her spirits. Nobody wants to be a murderer, but some don't get the choice.

His coach uses the publicity to set Simon up in the fight of his life in scarcely a month's time, but physica In the future, personal computers are integrated into the bodies of most first-world citizens, sex-bots are the norm, and brothels are as common as restaurants.
In this world, Tad Barlow is an introverted virgin in search of a genuine sexual experience, and Symphony Rains is a long-term brothel girl desperate to remain relevant in the profession she believes in. This is not a love story. Tyrus, I neither like or dislike him at this stage to be honest. The rangers, and one in particular, with their bears play a great role and are really intriguing to read about.
In terms of criticisms. I did have a bit of a stutter combining the different elements of the story. We have these very old, almost biblical style cities with armies fighting for dominance. But then we have the nine hells and dwarves, and the forests and elves. That being said, the book does conclude well and leaves a perfect setting for the next instalment. Overall I had a really good time reading this and would definitely want to pick up the next instalment to see how the story progresses.
Goodness, this one sounds amazingly ambitious, but the story clearly engaged you and sounds interestingly different. An excellent review, Lynn — thank you for sharing:. It is ambitious but it makes a very good read — difficult to pin it all down in a review without giving overboard though. You are commenting using your WordPress.
