Synopsis

The world is broken...

Corban wants nothing more than to be a warrior under King Brenin's rule - to protect and serve. But that day will come all too soon. And the price he pays will be in blood.

Evnis has sacrificed - too much it seems. But what he wants - the power to rule -- will soon be in his grasp. And nothing will stop him once he has started on his path.

Veradis is the newest member of the warband for the High Prince, Nathair. He is one of the most skilled swordsman to come out of his homeland, yet he is always under the shadow of his older brother.

Nathair
has ideas - and a lot of plans. Many of them don't involve his father, the High King Aquilus. Nor does he agree with his father's idea to summon his fellow kings to council.

The Banished Lands has a violent past where armies of men and giants clashed in battle, but now giants are seen, the stones weep blood and giant wyrms are stirring. Those who can still read the signs see a threat far greater than the ancient wars. For if the Black Sun gains ascendancy, mankind's hopes and dreams will fall to dust...

...and it can never be made whole again.


MALICE is a dark epic fantasy tale of blind greed, ambition, and betrayal.

    Commit To It, And Enjoy It

    I feel I should preface this review by saying that this book is a commitment. I'm a fast reader, but this took me a looooong time to get through. Partly cause of the extensive word count (close to 700 pages here), but also because the plot was pretty slow going in some points. There was a lot of buildup and I think some of it could have been condensed, but it all added to either the characters or the story. And really, that's the only complaint I have. Everything else I loved. The history of the world, the politics, the amazing characters, the intense action scenes, and the explosive finale. While there were some moments when the plot was predictable and some of the characters I wanted to smack upside the head at times (I'm looking at you, Veradis), looking back I recall just how much I enjoyed the story. It's definitely an epic, but the many, MANY characters are fantastic. Corban is a great lead and side characters like Veradis, Cywen, Gar, and many others are terrific. I know who the villains are, but even they were relatable at times. That said, there are lots of characters and at times I had to remember who everyone was and what was going on. But I'm nitpicking. This truly is a great fantasy novel with exciting action and world-building that isn't heavy on the magic side. I'm willing to bet the series will get far more intense as it unfolds, and I can't wait to see where everyone will end up and what will happen next.
