Warrior (The War Chronicles Book 1) Kindle Edition
Demon-spawn, they call him; evil seed of the UnNamed One. Lirak wonders if they might be right. Sent on a holy quest to test his prophetic dreams, he returns to find his people scattered or slaughtered. Ruthless invaders and their dread warlocks spread death and destruction across the land. Before he can lead the remnants of his people in vengeance, he must win their trust. But blades and arrows alone will not defeat this enemy. His only hope is to master warlock sorcery, turning their own fell powers against them.
Can he learn their arcane secrets in time, or will the deadly power consume him?
Only the Seven Gods could know, but they war amongst themselves, Lirak is a pawn in their divine conflict. Even if he defeats the invaders, he fears his trials are just beginning.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
With his knack of wonderful action pacing and fantastic world building, Sean never left me wondering when the story was going to really get up and get moving like many books handling the differences between primitive and civilized cultures. Though the bulk of this tale is told from the more primitive view, please do not let that lead you to think these people are not sophisticated. There is a depth of culture peeking through the wonderfully complex characters and tightly woven prose that allowed me to smell the world of this tale as it unfolded.
It did take me a while to become thoroughly hooked, which I believe is because of the unfamiliar terms and names. I just couldn't "hear" their pronunciations at first. However, this did not detract from my enjoyment in any way. It did leave me distanced enough to note a few interesting things.
The first: There is a huge cast of characters for any single book. It will be interesting to see how the cast moves through the rest of the series, because it's either just a tad small, or we haven't met everyone yet for a full series. The ones present have a wonderful diversity, each is unique to themselves, yet provides a bit of texture to make the tapestry of this tale quite vivid. The one downfall, for me, was that the sheer size of the cast had me more focused on what was happening to them, rather on a few of the more gut-wrenching evocative scenes. Perhaps this is something that will change on a re-read. Especially since I've read through once, and know who's going to be there later.
Overall, this was definitely a page turner and I eagerly look forward to the next book in the series. Well done!
What do my Stars Mean?
Star 1: The book was reviewed, no book can have 0 stars, this means I cared enough to write a review. This is the I cared enough Star.
Star 2: The book has less than 10 grammar mistakes. Any more and it loses a star. This is the Literary/ Editor Star.
Star 3: The book doesn't have plot holes. When characters act "out of character," develop out of pace of the normal for the book/author, make decisions that don't make sense it ruins the read. Also when everything is magic and ponies, and bounties of wealth and reward, a book gets old. This is the Realism Star.
Star 4: The book breaks what everyone else is doing, it tries new things and asks new questions. The magic system is unique, and the combat is realistic. This is the (Breaking the)Meta star.
Star 5: The author can write: vivid landscapes that are livable, characters that are relatable, prose that you want to read (as opposed to just skimming the prose and reading the dialogue), surprises that actually surprise you, and a "page turner," (this last one is hard to describe; its a book you can't put down). This is the Talent Star.
The clash between a primitive, and a much more sophisticated culture is fascinating, causing the reader to "learn along" with the heroes. The humanity, struggles, and introspection of the young leader are a reminder of the human sameness in each generation, and that there truly is nothing new under the sun.
Very well done! Looking forward to Volume II.
Highly recommended, and I hope to see more from this author soon!
I would say people who love Lord of The Rings, Dune, Red Rising, Jim Butcher and Brandon Sanderson books will really enjoy this, if not fall head over heels for it like i have
