  • Really Good Epic Fantasy Novella! Read This!

    Even though this is a relatively short novella, Jaromir and Talmage's voices are clear, different, and authentic. The two brothers have been through a lot since they grew apart, and each of them has his own reasons to resent the other, as well as to make these or those life choices. Still, as the story unfolds they find themselves realising that, at the end of the day, they're still the only family they've left. From the first pages of the novella, I found myself eager to see whether they'd be able to set their differences aside for the sake of surviving, before their hatred for what the other has become got them killed. Talmage, particularly, was quite an interesting character, who only wanted to make things right; I found myself rooting for him more than I expected. The one thing this novella excels at, though, is the prose. Far from too dense, the story's written in an English that will remind the reader of some big titles of the genre, such as "The Lord of The Rings" or "Mistborn". Thanks to the rich descriptions, the reader will soon enough be trying to escape the labyrinth by Talmage's side, or squirming as Jaromir tries to resist the torture to keep his men, and their plan to save the world from magick, safe. Magick is, precisely, the one thing I didn't get enough of. It's a pivotal element for both Jaromir and Talmage's stories, and Talmage relies on it to get through the labyrinth. I would've liked to learn more about how it works, and why people like Jaromir think it should be exterminated. Hopefully future stories set in this same universe will let us know more! An enjoyable novella for anyone who enjoys high fantasy novels and redemption arcs.

    Thanks for your feedback!
