There are serious layers to this story that flow beyond simple fantasy, and it’s a connection point that readers will be captivated with. Is death really the worst thing? Can redemption really be found amidst such tragic figures? Could the death of a god truly end the story for our antihero? Just when you start to answer these questions, you are reminded that this narrative is not one sided, there are many dimensions.
Fantasy readers will find this compelling story to be well placed within following “Call of Agon” as it has deep meaning and interesting characters, quests, and more. It’s not heavy handed like other fantasy books, letting the reader answer some pressing questions without being spoon fed, which is one of the things I like about Wilson’s writing. In the end, this book is very much like mixing Greek mythology with Wuxia (kung fu cinema) stories, as it reflects birth, death, rebirth and triumph. There is loss, but there’s so much more to gain, so to say that it’s linear and one sided is just wrong. There’s so much offered here, that you’ll have a hard time putting this one down. Read this one, and then go back to “call of Agon”, and you’ll have a new favorite story. I liked it, and recommend it greatly.
Corrias is dead after the battle with the Lichelord and the armies of Agon. Many mortals suffered the same fate as Corrias and their souls have been lost forever. Among the dead is Theos, the boy whose body was shared by the god Corrias. Upon the death of the boy, the god could no longer sustain life.
The Cleric Ifferon and Delin the Knight seek to resurrect the boy, but others have a different plan. There is a hiccup in this plan though as they also need to resurrect Corrias. They must test their hearts and souls as they struggle to save the boy and their honor, or save the god and the rest of the realm. Either task in itself would be hard enough to accomplish, but being chased by the Ferian who believe the boy should be put to rest and by the armies of Shadow make this even harder.
Prince Herr’Don has returned to his father’s kingdom in Boror, but only half the man he used to be. He struggles against death as he fights against the damage done to his mortal body. What kind of hero can a man be with only one arm?
Melgales resurfaces as you turn the pages of the book. The magus only played a small but vital role in the first book prior to his death, but he has returned in the second book in the series. The magus is trapped between the realm of the living and Hales; his soul trapped in the realm of the living, making it impossible for him to fully cross over. Simply have the artifact holding his soul destroyed and he could pass fully over as the Gatekeeper in Hales will not let him pass until the magus’ soul has been released. There is a problem with this though, Yavun is now tied to the same artifact. Does Melgales find a way to destroy the artifact and save himself from being stuck between the worlds forever?
This book is a splendid example of great world building and interaction between the main characters.
5 out of 5 Stars. An epic fantasy for readers of all ages.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an intricately built fantasy world with lots of action and intrigue.
In this book Ifferon and his group face new challenges as they explore the possibilities of transcending death. Their long and arduous journey continues on as they are faced with heavy choices that have serious implications. Battle worn, though resolute in their task, they travel forward. We are compelled to follow longing to know where their path and choices will lead them.
The creation of a land, language and people in a fantasy adventure is truly a remarkable feat. Not only has Author Dean F. Wilson achieved this endeavor with a fervor and fastidiousness that sets the mood for a thrilling and epic adventure, he has also managed to set in a feeling of hope, truth and greater good. After finishing this book, and having read The Call of Agon, I can tell you that I am anxiously awaiting the third book of this grand story. I highly recommend it!
