We're only in the prologue, and the book is already giving me the willies. And that's a good thing.
Torg eventually escapes the pit and embarks on an Odyssey-like journey back to his desert home to stop Invictus from enslaving the world of Triken.
Jim Melvin's world-building was at once fantastic and logical, from the unique human cultures to the strange twists on traditional monsters. It's obvious Melvin put a lot of thought into the ecosystems that support his world. For example, Torg discovers a race of monkeys that live deep underground. How do they sustain themselves? By carving meat off a gigantic tentacled monster that inhabits the caverns, like microscopic mites on human skin. How does the monster survive? By eating the monkeys. It's an elegant symbiosis, and Melvin portrays other unique creatures similarly throughout the book.
Forged in Death has a non-traditional magic system - Torg enters a state of temporary death, feeds off the power of the afterlife, and then returns to his body magically recharged (which is why he's called a "Death-Knower"). The evil wizard Invictus, however, gets his power from the sun.Read more ›
I wished Amazon or the publisher would have given my some sort of warning that this book series contains some disturbing sexual content. Others may not be bothered by such content but I feel I should be warned and given a choice. I believe the author has the right to write whatever he wishes and Amazon has the right to sell it but some sort of warning label needs to be placed so I can make a choice to purchase or avoid this type of material. So, I decided to address the issue and contact both Amazon and the publisher, BelleBooks in Memphis, TN.
After discussing Melvin's Death Wizard series with Amazon, I have asked Amazon to place a content advisory on the Death Wizard Chronicles for adult/sexual content.
Until then, be warmed this book and Melvin's second book Chained By Fear contains sexual content of the following nature. Incest, sex between children, rape, child masturbation, grandmother raping granddaughter and more. The sexual content in book one is more adult oriented and by book two progresses more to incest/children. Some of the content is rather explicit.
Sad thing is, the underlying story is great but the sexual content leaves a sick, perverted residue that overwhelms and taints the series to the point I had to stop reading.
So far, Amazon's response has been great and both people I have spoken with at Amazon have agreed with me that some sort of action needs to be taken. I feel Amazon has taken my concern seriously.
I would like to thank Amazon for their response to my concerns regarding this material, including their legal department for taking the time to call me and discuss the matter with me. Jennifer and Rona, thanks for listening and helping.
