  1. I always love finding new fantasy series worth reading. Of course, I also hate it, as I don’t know that I’ll ever get around to reading them all. But it’s good to know they’re there, just the same. Glad to hear you enjoyed this one. I do have an ebook copy so I hope to give it a try one day.

    1. Same. I don’t even mind seeing things that were already done in other series since debut authors tend to find clever ways to give those “tropes” a nice twist too. I hope you get around to this one and that you enjoy it too, Todd! I’ll have to get my hands on the recently-released sequel now to see how it is soon too! 😀

  2. While I had great expectations for this book, and was indeed fascinated by its background – so different from the usual fantasy setting – I had trouble connecting with Tau as a character because I found him somewhat two-dimensional, and this stole much of the enjoyment for the story. Still, I’m glad you were able to appreciate it, and I know that the second book should be out soon, so you will be able to see how the story progresses.
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. Oh snap, I’m sorry to hear how he turned out to be two-dimensional for you. I can see what you mean and I think I might have not looked into his character that way myself, maybe just contenting myself to a man embodying revenge and discovering love on the side hahah I do wonder if maybe book 2 will improve on this. Did you end up crossing this series off your TBR since having read RoD or do you plan on checking out the sequel someday? 😀 Thanks for reading, Maddalena!

      1. While I always enjoy a good revenge tale, this one did not exactly agree with me, and that despite the fascinating background. I’m not sure I will continue with the series, but the proverbial jury is still out: should I read some encouraging reviews I might change my mind… 🙂

  3. I appreciate the advice to not expect it to be all about dragons because that’s what I assumed based on the title, lol! This is one I want to try because I keep hearing good things about it. I tend not to like revenge plots, so I’ll have to see how that goes for me. It helps that you gave it a high rating 🙂

    1. Hahahaha it would’ve been killer if you had gone into it thinking there were loads of dragons! The revenge theme is dominant and central in this story but the first book does a nice job in setting up the universe and what’s to come! I hope you have a blast with it when you do get around to it. 😀

  4. This sounds like a very impressive debut! I can’t say, I read much fantasy. Not sure why, because some of my favourite series are fantasy. The fight for justice is always an appealing theme, whereas an action heavy story is not my favourite thing. Anyway, great review and glad you enjoyed it so much!
