I recieved this book from James from Endeavour media to review.
“You, my friend, are one of the greatest mass murderers this world has ever known. I congratulate you.”
Assassin, cultist, zealot; Everus Dragonbanner’s sole aim in life is to serve Xethorn — the evil god who enabled him to exact revenge on those who destroyed his life.
Satiated, but forever bitter, Everus does whatever is required by the high priest, and more importantly by his god who contacts him directly. Stalking through his unsavoury, grotesque, dark and dangerous world and accompanied by a grave robbing thief — who has his own agenda — he seeks the magical wards which will allow Xethorn to regain His supremacy.
Arrogant, charismatic and cold-hearted, Everus begins to realise that even his cynical view of people is not dark enough, as he eventually discovers the true extent to which he has been manipulated.
The Daemondamned Trilogy is a grimdark fantasy epic in which good is not pitched against evil, love does not triumph and loyalty is not rewarded.
The book did take a while to get into I nearly had a DNF which I never want have to do. So I plodded on and so glad I didn’t as this book eventually got into the swing of things.
The book itself is very engrossing and extremely difficult to put down once you get into it. The characters in the book are amazing and well written. The build up is really well thought out and will have your imagination running wild.
The only downfall i’d have is that the book seems to be written unfairly. Its like they’ve wrought out a paragraph and changed everything. Its like the author has wrote what he wanted the decided to changed each word into a different variation. I don’t now why maybe its just me being awkward.
This books does have alot of violence there’s no sugar coating it but the way it’s written makes you think that your actually there with them. I did get into this book at the end and probably will read the next instalment but wont be buying it in a hurry.
I really enjoyed this book and can’t thank James enough I really appreciate it.
