Title: Union of renegades ( The Rys chronicles # 1 )
Author: Tracy Falbe
Pages: 338 ( on my e-reader )
The Rys Chronicles begin with this character-rich adventure that follows the travels of Dreibrand Veta, an ambitious warrior who seeks to rebuild his noble family’s fortune. He is the first to join the powerful rys spellcaster Shan, whose race possesses magical powers and whose Queen Onja rules many human kingdoms as their Goddess. The wickedness and tyranny of Onja disgust Shan and he desires to seize the rys throne from her. The third renegade is Miranda. After escaping from her abusive slave master, she becomes a crucial player in Shan’s bid for power. To weaken Onja, Shan raises rebellion among her human subjects and gathers allies to his cause. Shan demonstrates his magic in battle and convinces his followers that the fearsome rys Queen can be overthrown. For over two thousand years Onja has ruled, but now, not even fear of her ability to enslave souls will stop her ambitious enemies
The view of a book addict:
The story is really great, but I had a little trouble getting into it. I love fantasy novels, but somehow they always take a little time to grow on me. I loved the background information about the worlds the author created. They made the world easier to see while you read the book The maps looked really great even on my e-reader.
Something that spoke to me was that you just didn’t follow one character, I always like to read more point of views of a story. This story took a little time to grow on me but once it di dit wouldn’t let me go. I’m really curious about what will happen next in this series.
The verdict of a book addict:
A great fantasy book, that took me a little time to get into but evantually captured me. This book is for all the real fantasy lovers.
