Customer Reviews

This is a nice read, full of action.
Doreen T. Matthews
I'm not saying that the novel is bad, or anything of the sort, it's just that it gets a little boring at times.
Presto
Well written, fast paced, and an ending to die for is everything I could have hoped for in this book.

Blood and Bronze by David J. Guyton is the second installment of the Legend of Reason Series. Like its predecessor Mighty Hammer Down, Blood and Bronze is as much a literary venture into the realm of philosophy and intellectualism as it is a fantasy adventure ripe with epic storytelling. What makes this series unique among a vast sea of fantasy novels is that Guyton's characters are not your run-of-the-mill characters who slavishly serve the plot. Rather, they challenge the reader to not only share their adventures, but to also inquire into some of the deeper mysteries of life.

Blood and Bronze picks up where Mighty Hammer Down left off. The capital city of Brinn has been left in ruins after being destroyed by an invading army. Rommus Tirinius, now reborn as the new god of war, is determined to save his people from the forces conspiring to destroy them. His mortal enemy Uritis, through subterfuge and murder, has now become emperor of Medora and in the guise of the Red Mage plots to transform Medora into his own twisted version of Utopia. Even as Rommus and his allies, the beautiful, but fierce Alana Irith, the mysterious, but Immortal warrior Vohlhemoneer, and his father, the mighty Tannis, seeks to enlist the aid of those who wish to defend Medora, strange beings from another world appear to threaten the land with a dark and terrible army. It is up to Rommus and his friends to stop the enemy, all the while knowing that every action they take may result in bringing about the destruction of the very fabric of time.

As much as I enjoyed reading Mighty Hammer Down, Blood and Bronze is by far the superior tale. Guyton flexes his highly polished writing skills to great effect.

As a philosophy student, I can appreciate what the author is trying to do here. He is trying to make a novel that introduces various philosophical themes to its readers. And in a sense he succeeds. He gives many good arguments for some moral problems and some of those arguments are even outstanding, however, I am not so sure his novel is better because of it.

He spends so much time giving arguments and reasons, that this novel feels more like a lecture than a fiction novel. I'm not saying that the novel is bad, or anything of the sort, it's just that it gets a little boring at times.

As a good point, I must say that the ending was totally unexpected and very interesting.

All in all, readers should know that this is the second book in the series, and that if you like fiction and consider yourself smart, then this is the book for you(here the author would give a discourse stating why the opposite may hold true lol). Just remember to have some patience and all will be well.

I'm not a fantasy reader typically, but this one held my attention, despite the monsters and a little bit of magic. The characters are so likable, especially Song, a new character in the series. He drew my attention with his many artistic talents. I also found myself having a lot of respect for Alana for her strength and intelligence as she and Rommus live through the story together. I kept wanting to read another chapter and another chapter, just so I could follow the interactions of all the characters. The book is filled with different story lines throughout, all which are nicely tied together in the end, with yet a still surprising finish that makes you yearning for Book 3. The sociology in the story makes you stop and think about world culture and how we all fit together as a species. I liked this book better than Mighty Hammer Down even, the first book in the series, and also liked the historical references. A recommended read that will be worth your time.

I simply had to read blood and bronze after reading the first book in the series Mighty Hammer Down. This series is fantastic, the characters are well developed and allow you to really see things from their point of view. I love that you are really able to see inside Rommus's head and know exactly what he is thinking. I am an avid reader but, I must admit I have not read many books on this side of the spectrum and so far I am hooked. The story has captured me and I can not wait for the next installment. The idea that this one man and his small group of allies Alana, Vohl, and to a certain extent Song are going to save Medora is what keeps me wanting more. They have already worked so hard and come so far I am hoping to see the outcome that they have earned, a peaceful Medora.

This is the second installment in the Legend of Reason Series. The excessive philosophical and political dialog continues to distract from my enjoyment of this series so I do not plan to read the next installments in this series. I am captivated by the underlying story with the epic conflict between and within various nations and gods. Also, the story has some time travel elements which I also enjoy. Unfortunately, the author is too focused, for my tastes, on debating virtues of various economic, value, political and social systems so that the underlying plot suffers. I suspect those interested in political science and deductive reasoning might find this story more appealing than I did.

Mighty Hammer Down (Legend of Reason Series) is the first book in the Legend of Reason Series and Soul Under the Mountain (Legend of Reason Series) is the third book. I could not find intended length of series in the book, on author's website or on Amazon. Author has announced that fourth book will be published Winter 2012.

No significant editing issues were noted. Blood and Bronze is 6,772 Kindle locations long. Standard length "paperback" novels seem to run in the 4,500 to 7,000 plus Kindle location range. Long novels can range from 15,000 to 20,000 plus Kindle locations.
