Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Three by Ron Glick.
Disclaimer: I was given a free ebook copy in exchange for an honest review.
About the Book: Everyone has a past that affects their present – but not many have their present affect their past.
The latest sword has awoken, but it is unlike any of the others that have come before. Three is not a sword that controls perception or elemental power, but instead gives its wielder mastery over time itself. What better way to destroy a Godslayer than to send him to a time before he ever was one?
And without the Godslayer in the present, who can possibly stand against a conspiracy of immortals seeking revenge against their errant parents, the Gods themselves?
Three is the third volume of the Godslayer Cycle, the nine book epic destined to redefine the power of divinity within fantasy fiction forever.
My Review: As a fantasy fan, I’ve enjoyed the author’s books and this one didn’t disappoint. One of the hardest things to do in a series is keeping things fresh and original while continuing the previous storyline. In Three, the author succeeds on both counts.
The story flows well and delves into aspects not normally attributed to the epic fantasy genre like time travel. I thought it was an awesome concept to take Nathaniel back in time. In doing so, the author captured the mentality of a person living during a time where science fiction concepts doesn’t exist. It added new depth to Nathaniel and opened the door to expand on Bracken’s character. Personally, I’m stoked to find out what happens to Bracken in future installments.
The only downside for me is that the book ends with a cliffhanger. It’s not a bad thing considering it’s a series, but I wasn’t ready for it to end. I can’t wait to read the next book.
