Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Night of the Taking (Verragos Tapestry Book 0) by Scott Kaelen.
About the Book: The Volami opened the walls of their shining city of Midhallow and invited the surrounding tribesfolk to venture within. Decades later, the two races dwell together inside the city, not quite as equals, and watched over by the ever-present Retainers. A treaty, offered by the tribes to the Volami, was to seal their tenuous union during a long-held ritual.
But it was a ruse.
The celebrations became the bloodiest treachery the Volami would ever know, and set in motion events that would echo down the ages.
My Review: This is an awesome introduction to the upcoming novel based on Verragos. The story flows well and is engaging and starts off on a heart rendering note.
I couldn’t help but feel for the Lonaris for the suffering he endured, but, as this was only a taste, it left me wanting for more. I’m excited to see what’s in store in the upcoming novel and if he succeeds in his quest.
I definitely look forward to this author’s future works.
