The 7th book of ‘The Book of Deacon’ series, which essentially ends the first half of the series. Yes, 7 books are just the first half, we’ve got it all to do again to finish the series. So what was book 7 like?
Well, it was a bit of a roller coaster, and then some. A relentless, none stop, too and fro between The D’Karon and The Chosen. We’ve been informed several times that one of The Chosen isn’t going to survive this battle, so we kind of know the rest are, but it’s what’s going to be left of the world after they survive that is the question. We also know that this is only the end of the first half of the series, so obviously something of The D’Karon is also going to survive as well, but as we don’t know exactly what The D’Karon is, or are, we don’t know much on what or who is going to survive.
It’s all pretty big, epic fantasy, and while i’m not big into all the fighting stuff, i still find it really enjoyable. Well written, easy to follow, with great characters on both sides of the conflict. You can really lose yourself for a couple of months in this series.
The next book is ‘The Adventures of Rustle and Eddy’, which, although set in the same world, isn’t part of the conflict and serves as a nice palate cleanser after all those nasty battles before we dive back into the next half proper.
Also available in ‘The Book of Deacon Anthology’.
