There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. That's the only negative. I enjoy lots of moving parts to a story and seeing how they meet. There are six or more countries at war it looks like and the Wolf People and some barbarians have discovered some lost magical items and they are running amuck on the world. You have two side plots that don't really mingle with the rest of the story but one searches for treasure, the other wonders around lol. I watched "hobo with a shotgun" and tamed down my own novel afterwards.
He dabbles in mystical religion as well. I sense native indian origins. There are parts I skipped through because the detail lost me somewhat. Connecting to the characters was like connecting to a blind date, you had to find something interesting about them before they came to life. I was hoping for a twist with some fruit found in the deadlands, something like hear have this peach and swallow the seed The Prince and his cowardly advisor need to be killed off, but you'll have to wait for the sequel I guess.
He starts the story well. Mucks around with the princess, has a kid and is exiled. You immediately sense there will be a moment of truth and final showdown for the exile to regain his honor. Even though it was inevitable, it was exciting to watch it all unfold. I read and write mainly horror and science fiction these days, but when I was younger, I read fantasy almost exclusively. The reason I put it down? Got sick of the standard elves, dwarves, dragons in various permutations. The reason I picked up Dawn of War?
Well, because Tim's a bro--might as well be honest--but I finished it because it really is good. And there ARE books of his--well one, so far--that I started and didn't get into, so I'm really not biased. Dawn of War is bloody, but not too bloody--it just doesn't skirt around what happens when good guys with swords meet bad guys with swords.
The first few chapters drag a bit only because Tim's introducing his cast of characters, but he at least starts with a nice, big fight. And once the cast is introduced, it's easy to keep track of everyone, especially in the last quarter of the book when people start meeting each other.
Best of all--there's not a dwarf, elf or gnome in sight. There ARE different races, but Tim created them all himself and they're intriguing rather than ho-hum. There's a symbiotic relationship between two members of different species that I find interesting, and a female cat-person I really hope continues to get close to the protagonist, because they're both badass.
If you like fantasy already, this'll be a good addition. If you've been bored for the past decade or so, like me, pick this up and give it a shot. If nothing else, you'll find one good new fantasy series to pick up. One person found this helpful. The Grol, a monstrous race that has long sought to overrun and destroy the fortified city-state of Lathah, now appears to have the mystical weapons they need to do it. Unfortunately, no one in Lathah is willing to believe that the Grol can now succeed where they failed before, and it is up to an exiled, disgraced former royal guard named Arrin to somehow convince them of the threat--or, failing to do that, to find allies to stand with Lathah in its hour of need.
This is the first book in Tim Marquitz's epic Blood War Trilogy, more grim and brutal in tone than you'd find in his Demon Squad series. It's set on a complex world with a lot of layers and twists that held my interest, and more than enough bloody and gruesome battle scenes to give it a very visceral kick. I'm looking forward to seeing how things get worse for the protagonists in the next volume.
I have to say it is a pleasure to find a serious fantasy that is well written for adults and not the many that claim to be but are, instead, just a half step above YA. The author's character descriptions were fantastic, as were his action scenes. If you like a fast paced story then you will appretiate this one, as it had no lulls and plenty of unique action.
Now I will explain why I didn't give this a five star rating, which I nearly did after struggling back and forth with it. As I stated earlier, the story is fast paced, but I would have liked for some areas to be a bit slower, as when first introducing the main characters so that I would have felt more of an attachment to them.
Fortunatly, I did feel as if I had a good grasp of the lead character, just not the others.
I do not want to mislead anyone by not painting this as all roses--this is a good book and I encourage anyone looking for an epic fantasy to read it. Not only did I enjoy this book but I intend to read the rest of the trilogy, as I'm sure most people will once they,too, have read it. I have been reading fantasy forever since the 80's, seen my share of "trilogy" that could have been written in single books, or could have been skipped enitrely due to boring writting, and I can say this is a nice first try from Tim Marquitz.
The first half of the book is a bit weak, with almost no dialogue, too many POV changes, some strange character introduction some chapters introducing a character will have you scratching your head as you could easily remove it completely and some plot questions going unanswered like what is the goal of the Grol? I'll buy the second book for sure. If I could add one thing to the book, it's some illustrations at the beginning of each chapters. Why aren't there any anymore? See all 64 reviews.
