Wow! That was a rave review and really applauded this book. I've already put this on my must read list! I too feel the pain and anguish of well written books that have gory, blood-lust battles; I will steel myself for those and forge ahead with this epic tale of a champion born to be a slayer & savior.
Congrats to the author on BOTD and a really great read!

The cover creeped me out! I just needed to get that off my chest. Also I don't like it when people die,so when many do thats even worse. It does sound like you enjoyed it though and am glad.Thanks for the well written review.

This sounds like a fun read if you were that invested in it. Those are some unconventional monsters/races, so I'm curious to see how he mashes them together in his world. You mention the modern story takes place over a span of five days, which is hilarious to me. I don't know how long it took the prologue people to defeat this great evil, but just imagine the modern characters going, "Eh, it only took us five days to beat him. How about you?" But the five days also speaks to how well his world-building is if he could cram and weave his world into such a short period of time.

I'll make note of this book. We can fangirl together when I come back to it.

Thanks for the review!

Aaaaaaah, but who says they defeated him in the five days? :wink2: You'll just have to read it.
And then, yes, please, I would LOVE to fangirl with someone!
