This is a book that came out of nowhere basically I got interested as it has the same title with the huge Miles Cameron debut as it was pointed to me here on Goodreads so I checked the sample and it was compelling so much so that I had to read the novel nextIn describing this book I would say that the narrative pull is extremely high the main characters impressive in so far they are larger than life heroic and competent but brought down though of course not for long by schemers meddlers and authorial intent that made kings and councilors act extremely stupid the world building mediocre or anyway not at the A level of recent debuts like mage's blood or Blood Song and the storyline is soap opera with knights sorcery treason and blood; villains are cartoonish and the storyline has all the flourishes one expects in soap operaThis being said the power of the narrative and the compelling main characters Alyda Talin Garian carry the day and i am definitely interested in As sf this would have worked much better since there one can get away with much campiness so to speak but high class fantasy needs high class world building and a storyline that does not depend on the stupidity of the movers and shakers to make sense so this series is not yet there but the author's narrative power should get it to the top with time should have a fbc review in November most likely with detail and some uotes for both the and aspects but the compelling soap opera with knights and sorcery' is very good shorthand description for the book

This is one of those Epic Fantasy novels that show how far Epic Fantasy has come since the birth of its modern incarnation in 1977 There is of course elements that you will recognise from the Fantasy novels of the 1980s it wouldn't really be Epic Fantasy if there weren't but this is a novel that shows how Epic Fantasy has grown up in the last 36 years I was uickly dragged into the story by Davies's writing and after the first chapter I was already invested in the story and the characters When we first meet the main character it's on the battlefield a setting that Davies brings vividly to life both here and later in the novel But I want to begin with the main character Captain of the First Company of the Antian Royal Guards Alyda Stenna Davies does a great job with Alyda she's a great warrior and a great leader but she never stops being a female Neither is she a character that in any way is a male in women's clothing she is just a female soldier who has risen to lead and in the world Davies has created that is something completely natural What it really boils down to is that in Alyda we get a character that is very realistic while being larger than life in the way a heroic lead of any work of fiction needs to be to make it through the trials and tribulations they are given Alyda isn't the only great character in this book making characters that feel fully alive is one of Davies's strengths There are no cardboard cut outs here but complex living people who have their own hopes and motives for what they do We are firmly in the upper reaches of society when it comes to the main characters but that doesn't really matter in that it is necessary to tell this exact story There is however many supporting characters that come from lower in the ranks this is not solely a story of the aristocracy I mentioned the word ranks above and it is a central theme there we are mostly in a military setting Something that brings us to the middle of the central conflict A conflict I might add that is what really gives us the basis for a great story We see what is happening through few eyes and because of that we don't get a ringside seat to everything that is going on It does however bring us much closer to the events that are described The story is almost intimate in nature because of the viewpoints used and for Epic Fantasy my experience is that can be a bit hit or miss here it is a bullseye Davies writes in a way that really makes you invest emotionally in what is happening to the characters she has created As the story progresses that creates a lot of tension The story goes its own ways and you just have to come along to see what is happening You're never really sure what is going to happen because Davies's storytelling doesn't follow a formula What we get is instead a complex tale that really comes alive It's also told in a raw and honest manner There's no Hollywood style sanitized violence here it's brutal and at times uncomfortable Davies doesn't filter but gives it to us straight That isn't always pleasant but it makes for great authentic writing It struck me when I read this how much really happened and how much I learned about the world the story is set in There's very little travel to show you the world and we don't get passages where we are subjected to extensive infodumping Still I felt I got a good grip on where all of this was happening and also a sense that there was much outside of that yet to discover I've tried to come up with a good way to describe the feeling this was giving me and the closest I can come is dense but that is not really correct either This does reuire concentration but that is not conscious Davies lures you into her world and you are so invested that it takes effort to pull yourself out I think maybe rich and vivid is the words I'm looking for or maybe alive It doesn't really matter I'm sure you understand by now that this was a story that I really got into and enjoyed As you probably have gathered by now I think this is an excellent debut by Davies My only complaint is that I wish there was to read I really didn't want this book to end This is an Epic Fantasy novel that showcases the genre at its best a book you really don't want to miss every Fantasy fan should have this in their collection Davies is an author we hopefully will be seeing much to in years to come I know I'll be eagerly awaiting her next novelNOTE I received an ARC of this book from the author1977 saw the publication of The Sword of Shannara Terry Brooks and the first Thomas Covenant book Lord Foul's Bane I don't remember where I saw this mentioned as the birth of modern Fantasy but the article made a very good case for it And since I use it here I obviously agreeThis review was originally published on my blog
