This is a well written fantasy in regards to the world Mr. Madison has created. The story weaves through many characters who appear balanced but as you read further into this story, you come to realize the battles and struggles mimic today's world.
The questions raised concerning faith, hope, and the rights. or morals of gods, is well thought out. Many of the subjects, characters, and actions actually caused me pause of my own beliefs.
I struggled with this book due to my agnostic views but I do feel my review is honest and sincere. I find it important to read books contrary to my own views to fairly judge myself and the author.
A recommendation that you read this book is a positive reflection on this book and subject matter
Like other readers, I generally pick out my favorite in a story and pull for them throughout the book. Here, however, the author has done an incredible job making a weak character strong, a strong character weak, and forcing the reader to constantly re-evaluate their personal connections to the individuals and factions. Reading the synopsis and the first few pages, I would never have expected to be so captivated by the violent goat-men that enslaved their victims, or so enthralled with the development of a simple wife and daughter escaping the books initial attack. And this is artfully done in a way that makes you not realize that you've become so intrigued, because it wasn't forced on you but rather built over many pages and events as the story unfolds. The relationship between magic and religion, and how the various races and factions practice both, really pulls the reader in and creates excitement and wonder at what could happen next in any given situation.
I really enjoyed my first read through of this book. The characters and plots were intricate enough to be interesting, but not so complex that I felt the need to keep notes. The pace was perfect, good foreshadowing but still plenty of surprises, and there was never a part that I felt slowed down unnecessarily. I'd refer to this as an "easy read", because I found myself eager to pick up the book and continue at every opportunity - I never had to force myself to continue.
I do not generally review books that I read on Amazon, because I so often am "late to the party" on an author or novel. I'm quite excited to be an early fan of this one, and I have given this book 5 stars for somewhat selfish reasons - to encourage the author to continue the series, and to encourage others to read so I have more people with whom to discuss and theorize on the plots and characters he has created.
Very well written. Madison created a unique and well thought out world. I enjoyed the questions of faith and religion that weaves through the plot.
Definitely a good read for anyone that likes fantasy!
I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
