Genre- Fantasy, Action, Adventure, Epic
Blurb- Gods, Dragons, a mercenary with a blade and no memory of his past…. The world of Tiamhaal is alight in war. Men ruled by kings slay their opposition in the name of their God, but there are others who claim the Gods are little more than scorned Dragons of ages past. Scar has come to find the truth, but is the truth an absolute certainty, or is it just the skewed memory of a forgotten kingdom?
My Rating- 5 Meows. It’s the Cat’s P.J.s!!!
Omg! I was not expecting this kind of story from The Dragon of Time, Gods and Dragons.
Yes, It’s an action-packed, fantasy adventure, and yes, there’s a ton of action right at the beginning, a ton, but it seems to me that it was used to portray how savage the Zmajans are compared to the rest of the people of Tiamhaal. Meow-kay…let me back up!
Scar is a mercenary. He is amnesiac, but can handle a blade better than anyone. He only wants to learn of his origins, and so Zoltek, king of the Zmajans—people who are in the worship of Zmaj, the All God, hires Scar to fight the Kulshedrans, people who worship the God of Truth, and in exchange, Zoltek is supposed to ask Zmaj about Scar, but…but…but…things are not simple.
Sigh, they never are, especially when big, burly, bald, muscley dudes are swingin’ swords at their enemies….
So, like, if you read the blurb, it hints at the fact that the Gods being worshipped might not be Gods, right? And it’s, like, called Gods and Dragons, so spoiler alert, most of the people in the world are unknowingly worshipping Dragons! They don’t even know it!
Here’s the deal, Scar doesn’t really care about whatever he needs to do, so long as he can learn of his origins, but after a betrayal, he actually switches sides, and he starts fighting for King Gilgamesh of Satrone, worshipper of Kulshedra, but this is before anyone figures out that some of the Gods are Dragons, and then things just get down right crazy-cat!
I won’t spoil the story because you have to read it. There’s a reason this fantasy “tail” of epic-cat proportions has mucho great reviews, and I guess it won some kind of contest, too, but listen to this reading, and then get this book.
Gods and Dragons, or I guess The Dragon of Time, there’s a sequel out, so the series is The Dragon of Time series, and this is where it’s at. This is the new fantasy series, and it’s all about Dragons, and Gods, and emotions, and turmoil. I’ll be diving right into the next fantasy book, Dragon Slayer, so read this book, and we can chat about it!
