The Mireces worship the bloodthirsty Red Gods. Exiled from Rilpor a thousand years ago, and left to suffer a harsh life in the cold mountains, a new Mireces king now plots an invasion of Rilpor’s thriving cities and fertile earth.
Templeson is a Watcher, a civilian warrior guarding Rilpor’s border. He
is also the most powerful seer in generations, plagued with visions and
prophecies. His people are devoted followers of the god of light and
life, but Dom harbours deep secrets, which threaten to be exposed when
Rillirin, an escaped Mireces slave, stumbles broken and bleeding into
Meanwhile, more and more of Rilpor’s most powerful
figures are turning to the dark rituals and bloody sacrifices of the Red
Gods, including the prince, who plots to wrest the throne from his
dying father in the heart of the kingdom. Can Rillirin, with her inside
knowledge of the Red Gods and her shocking ties to the Mireces King,
help Rilpor win the coming war? @goodreads
I very much enjoyed this book. Well, some parts I had to gloss over
because this is a Grimdark and has very cringe-worthy scenes. So this
book is not for the faint of heart! Blood guts and torture!
was thrilled to get this freaking awesome stained, signed and numbered
edition of the hardback. I also got a lovely postcard sent from the
author. Some authors are just so awesome ♥
were several characters that I liked but damned if I didn't write down
all of their names! Story of my life. I did write down Rillirin and
Dom's names, although Dom is easy to remember. Dom found Rillirin and
took care of her. He felt like she knew something, like she was meant to
be there with him and his people. Well she did have a story to tell but
it wasn't the one Dom was thinking.
I enjoyed Dom and Rillirin a
great deal and hope everything goes well for them in the next book.
That ending though.... I don't know!
There were other people in that band of people that I loved. Strong women and men.
didn't like the other people so much as they had the Dark Lady Woman,
whatever she was called. I just know I hated her and she put out some
serious torture on peeps. I guess for an evil character she beats
everyone I know!
The two sides are fighting one another while others are fighting and killing each other over the throne. It's crazy train.
the book you're basically thrown into the story. There is no real
world, you're just along for the ride wherever you may be with the
person you're reading about. Oh yes, there are multiple POV's but once I
got used to them it wasn't that bad at all. I liked the shorter
chapters too. It helps when you have a tiny brain!
hoping to get the next book in the special edition, signed and number
book as well because it looks amaze balls! Freaking awesome cover. We
God, I wonder what kind of torture of peeps and stuff
will be in the next one. Like I said, I just skim over stuff like that
if it gets too bad because I still like to read great stories. And I
watch a lot of history type with that stuff in it so I'm used to
skimming or averting the eyes if it's too much. Just know all of that if
you're going into this type of book.
I don't do animal torture
and unless it was in some of the parts with human torture I skimmed
over, there wasn't anything like that so kudos (I think)
