The BEST fiction book I've read all year, and I want to tell you why.
Page by page, Jack Geurts masterfully plays with your mind, pulling the strings of your imagination and drawing you into the world he has created, so you feel as if you are on the journey yourself with the lead characters.
The twists and turns throughout had me physically yelling out at times for I couldn't contain my excitement.
For those who love fantasy fiction, do yourself a favour and read this book. I can imagine the sequels will be just as gripping as the original.
The original lays the perfect foundation for the sequels to take place. It answers the right amount of questions about the world laid out for you, while maintaining the mystery that will keep me coming back for more.
The Fire and the Forge follows the story of Imharak. An adopted blacksmith apprentice who knows nothing about his past or where he came from.
The blacksmith, Gaius, keeps quiet about Imharak's origins and after a while Imharak accepts that his life is what it is...
That is until a civil war erupts between centuries old fuedes between multiple 'clans' or 'countries' within the land of Libera. That causes the two men to cross the continent in search of Gaius' brother, however along the way, Imharak begins to find out about his true origins, and certain powers that he holds that no one else does...As the story unravels, you begin to find out the origins behind Imharaks past, and as the story progresses, Imharak starts to become the man he was destined to become.
Intricate storytelling, rich character development, packed with edge of your seat mystery, and an unfolding world of imagery that is masterfully written. And that ending...talk about epic!
Look forward to seeing more of what Jack Geurts can do, talented author to definitely watch out for in years to come.
“The Fire And The Forge” is incredibly quotable. Geurts weaves life lessons like a true philosopher. Like Aesop, Geurts’ writing teach caution when caution is due and encourage a critical filter while disseminating information.
Gaius, while not being blood related to Imharak, rears the boy with love and wisdom. Gaius’ past is never far from his thoughts and he uses the bloody lessons he’s learned to give Imharak a deeper understanding of life than most in their feudal land. The love between them adds a depth to this story that most tales like this lack. It puts a very human face on fiction and weaves a story that will, brick by brick, add pieces to the readers life. I’m better for reading this story.
Unlike most fantasy, “The Fire And The Forge” has a setting that is closer to a Roman or Egyptian civilization and it’s a very nice reprieve from the ever present “dark ages” scene. The characters range in race and culture. It’s a story rich in diversity as well as adversity.
I especially enjoyed the different “magics” illustrated here. What a powerful imagination Geurts must have. There aren’t many stories that I recommend for film but this is absolutely one of them. If given the chance, I think it would rock the world on the scale of the “Game of Thrones” series. Yes, it really is that good.
I am completely caught in Geurts’ web and won’t be getting out anytime soon. I look forward to continuing the series.
