Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between humans and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer. Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom. And Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people.
I do have to say that the author is a phenomenal writer. Seems to spend a lot of time with his work, and goes into great detail. Although, the story reminded me of a medieval soap opera. Lots of drama and hidden secrets from people's past with very little action. No real main focus on any one character for you to cheer on through their struggles. I realize this is what most people enjoy, but it's not what I'm looking for in a book.
Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.
You really fall in love with the main character. Plot twist after twist will keep you constantly entertained. The immersive world the author creates is one to astonish
Equipped with skills far beyond those of the outworlders, Rezkin has been suddenly thrust into a foreign world. The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence. While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms.
Greatest character ever created. Without a doubt. I've read fantasy and science fiction for decades, and I've been waiting for a character like this. Thank you for such an incredible story. Can't wait for the next books!
The final installment of the Shadowdance series finds Haern the Watcher returning to his beloved city of Veldaren, only to find it has collapsed into chaos. The Sun Guild has conquered the former thief guilds, destroying the peace Haern fought so hard to obtain. The Trifect is their next target, and Alyssa Gemcroft must reach out to whatever allies she can obtain, even if it means casting aside longtime friends.
Absolutely incredible. I now have one of my favorite quotes. "There will be time for weakness later." Long live The Watcher!
