  • Epic Part 1 Brimming With Interesting Characters

    Darkness is an exciting beginning to an epic story. As the first part of the three part novel King's Folly (which is in turn only the first novel of the Kinsman Chronicles trilogy), this story is not complete. But it IS an engrossing introduction filled with well-developed, distinct characters (a definite strong point of Williamson's novels). The action and suspense are tight with plenty of mysteries to whet the appetite. The settings are well crafted and unique. The various characters' storylines introduced in Darkness Reigns look like they will be complex, realistic and quickly won my sympathy/support/ire (depending on the person). All of the protagonists have strong virtues while also each being deeply flawed. There is clearly a great deal of growth (and probably dire consequences) in store for these characters on their journeys but they all earned my rooting for them. ;) If you have read Williamson's previous novels, be advised this series is written with a slightly older audience in mind. Darkness Reigns was not a graphic read in any way but has many recurring thematic elements (polygamy and concubines, prostitution and sexual slavery, human sacrifice) that some readers may prefer to avoid. My only real complaint with this book is that I would prefer to read the story all the way through rather than in three parts. However, the opportunity to sample the first part without having to wait or read a large fantasy novel in one large chunk may appeal to many. That is simply a matter of taste. Darkness Reigns is definitely worth the read, as promises to be the rest of the novel! Five stars from me. I will be eagerly awaiting each release in the Kinsman Chronicles. ***I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for my HONEST review.***
