Back Cover Blurb:


After the catastrophe of the Call of Agon, Ifferon and his companions find themselves in the unenviable situation of witnessing, and partaking in, the death of another god—this time Corrias, the ruler of the Overworld.

With Corrias locked inside the corpse of the boy Théos, he suffers a fate worse than the bonds of the Beast Agon. Yet hope is kindled when the company find a way to restore the boy, and possibly the god, back to life.

The road to rebirth has many pitfalls, and there are some who consider such meddling with the afterlife a grave risk. The prize might be life anew—but the price might also be a second death.

My Review:

Wilson returns to his fantasy world with a subtle flair that brings everything to life in an even bigger way. The plot was tightly woven, with many sub-lines throughout. I enjoyed the extra complexity that this added to everything. I enjoyed the way that Wilson blended what one would expect from a fantasy novel with something very unique to create a novel that was one of a kind and all his own.

The way that Wilson gives readers insight into his characters was fantastic. They may not always agree with one another, heck, I didn’t always agree with their actions and reactions but I found that I really came to know and understand them by the end of the novel. This varied cast of characters who were thrown together by circumstance definitely come together to build a wildly unique and utterly captivating whole.

Wilson has created a complex tale with interweaving storylines that truly kept me on my toes throughout. There wasn’t a moment of this tale that didn’t have me completely captivated.
