"The Chosen of Anthros" is the 4th book in Travis Simmons' "Harbingers of Light" series and picks up where "A Lament of Moonlight" leaves off - with our heroes having finally found their way through the forest and ready to head into the Harbinger settlement.
This entry in the series is full of surprises as we learn more about both the Harbingers and the plague in general and the characters specifically. Once they reach the settlement, each of the characters is given training and tasks that keep them separate much of the time, and Simmons does a nice job of spreading the story between them, giving each the chance to grow individually. There are also the beginnings of what might turn out to be a sweet love story, which is a nice touch amongst the seriousness of the rest of the events.
As a lover of Norse mythology, I like how Simmons uses various aspects of the stories to tell an original tale - not just a retelling of established lore. While he uses different names for some of the gods, it's still pretty clear who they are (especially if you're at all familiar with the myths) but it allows him to endow them with different characteristics, making them fresh.
This installment ends with a shocking cliffhanger - which sometimes can be rather off-putting. In this case, however, it just makes me that much more eager to see what happens next.
The Chosen of Anthros is book four of the Harbingers of Light series. In this portion, we see Rorick, Abigail, and Leona finally arrive in Haven. They quickly learn that Rowan isn't in fact their long lost aunt, and that their father is really the God Olik. As the shadows prepare for an impending war, Leona finds out that she is the seer of the future, and her beloved Skuld is actually a Norn. As the war approaches, the Harbingers of light are seen roaming less frequently and the city is practically a ghost town. What will they learn from Fortarian? Will Abigail learn to control her plague?
What can I say? Once again, Travis Simmons has kept me completely engrossed. I love the hint of a love triangle between Gil, Skye, and Abigail. The ending is rather shocking and I really hope that it really isn't so. I can't wait for book five to see how Travis brings about the war, he's so creative and the ending of this book left me wondering where the story will lead us next. One of the things that I absolutely love about this series thus far is the relationship dynamic is very realistic. All in all, this is yet another great series by one of my favorite authors and I'm eagerly anticipating book five.
This is a very interesting series that mixes myths with fiction to create a new world. The writing style of [Simmons] has a great amount of description so he transports you to this new world. A well done fantasy.
