BLURB: All legends are born of truths. And just as much lies. These are mine. Judge me for what you will. But you will hear my story first.
I buried the village of Ampur under a mountain of ice and snow. Then I killed their god. I’ve stolen old magics and been cursed for it. I started a war with those that walked before mankind and lost the princess I loved, and wanted to save. I’ve called lightning and bound fire. I am legend. And I am a monster.
My name is Ari.
And this is the story of how I let loose the first evil.
This is described as The Name of the Wind meets The City of Brass – and given that I’m a huge fan of both books, I felt this one had to be on my TBR. Anyone else giving this one a whirl?
This sounds great! That opening paragraph of the blurb definitely hooked me! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
It does sound intriguing, doesn’t it? Here’s hoping that the book measures up!
Sounds like it will be very interesting. Wondering what the first evil is and how it got released. Hope you enjoy it!
Yes… I’m looking forward to discovering what that first evil is all about, too:).
I’m very curious about this, and I’ve heard good things! The cover is certainly eye catching😁
It is an attractive cover – I can’t lie… it was that rather lovely sunset pink that first caught my attention:)).
I have a copy of this and I’m eager to pick it up. Fingers crossed for lots of goodness.
I know! Looking forward to getting to it:)).
