The opening is strong and bloody. I like a good action scene. The author provides many to satisfy my interest.
The premise of a god having a successor is interesting. Especially considering the prize isn’t what it originally appears to be.
Hilda’s death scene was good up until the point she was able to kill her murderer. Her opponent got way too cocky, way too fast.
The way Kyle killed Ned. The setup led me to believe something else was in store. I enjoyed the simplicity of the fight.
I also enjoyed how quickly Kyle killed the former Celestial King. Dorrell’s reaction and planning to just wait the new king out, were also strong points.
I didn’t like how quickly Hilda sacrificed her arm. She seemed too pure and innocent. I understand her village bred people like that, but her lack of resentment for Ellia seemed weird.
Ellia’s ultimate fate was also upsetting. I feel we were TOLD why Kyle let her live, but the author should have SHOWED us. That scene could have played out for many pages of agony as Kyle determines her fate. Instead, he basically just says, “There’s the door.” It was also odd how much the story focused on her to mostly abandon her in the final act.
There are numerous grammar issues in this book. Not on every page, but definitely two or three per chapter. When you factor in 61 chapters, you can see how the frequency can be jarring. A more thorough editing process is necessary.
This book is violent with many severed limbs. If you don’t like a body count, you may wish to stay away.
