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.
The names – Geldirana of the Garigut, the Molokran - ring out like the frequent clash of swords in the story. Above all, the characters have a life upon the page, and Wilson obviously cares deeply about them. Daralus the Crown Poisoner, although only playing a minor part in the story, is particularly well-drawn.
The theme of restoring golden youth - hence the title of the book - is entwined with an eternal struggle for power. Men, and women, struggle to dominate each other in a universe of awesome dimensions. There are masterly passages of true horror, and blood and battle is never far away. That said, there is never an air of the gratuitous, or a tiresome obsession with gore. Every incident is there for a purpose, one often profound. A debate upon the thin veil between life and death, the nature of gods and magic, the very essence of creation itself, runs in a constant thread through the story.
Questions are asked - What is the significance of The Scroll of Mestalarin? Has Theos died in vain? - these are but two examples. In this way, puzzles continually sustain the reader’s attention. It would obviously be unfair to author and reader alike to reveal any answers, let us simply state that the outcome of the tale is never predictable
Particularly pleasing are the songs which occur frequently, but never obtrusively, in the text. Even the more melancholy airs add another dimension of timeless legend to the saga. Some too are of impressive length, always well-composed, never drifting into mere doggerel. An attractive map as a frontispiece also gives added pleasure to reading this always engaging narrative.
If he can escape from dungeon-then there will be apocalypse for the human civilization-because the deadly beast will stop at nothing but before the annihilation of entire human race. Only the bloodline of Telm-is the only hope to the human species. One of the representatives of the bloodline is Ifferon-our protagonist.
Ifferon and his companions are in a quest to save the human race-to ensures that the beast remains chained- and the followers of the beast –the creatures of darkness are defeated.
But heir endeavour met with fire-they witnessed the death of the mortal body of a boy-inside whose body resided the soul of the father god, Corias! They again find themselves in a journey- a wonderful journey in which many friends may turn foes and foes may turn friends- a journey with fascinating happenings- to save the boy and ensure there is resurrection of the father god!
Will this be possible? Reader will swing in an epoch of possibility and impossibility in this most extraordinary adventure-where legends, folk lore, history all have been mixed up to create a true mirror of the medieval Europe – and the people and the land.
