    Set in the world of Selenoth he created for a previous work Summ

    Set in the world of Selenoth he created for a previous work Summa Elvetica, published under his real name Theodore Beale, Vox Day's A Throne of Bones is a masterful Fantasy novel after the style of GRR Martin told from the perspectives of seven or so far-flung characters in a World much like JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth with Dwarves, Elves and Orcs, except with Catholic Church-, 5th Century Rome-, and 15th Century France-like analogs.  The story takes some time to set up, but once all of the major characters are set up, the tail is a winding and unexpected roller-coaster ride of military duty, religious devotion, treasure hunts, close get-aways, hopeless love and unwinnable battles.  The first installment of a three book trilogy, I'm looking forward to what comes next.  Vox Day is a Christian author, and this work has sparked a good deal of controversy in that it depicts a great many characters acting in immoral ways, and it is too graphic for children to read.  While it is not sanitized the way some Christians would like, the work is distinctly coming from a Christian worldview: whenever a character calls upon Jesus' name, and whenever the occult is used against the sincerely religious, the Christian God is shown to be in control.  The Bible itself isn't sanitized, so I see no reason Christian fiction should be at the expense of dramatic realism, except that the work cannot be read to children.  As I said, I enjoyed it very much and look forward to the second installment in the trilogy.

    Very Well Written

    Enjoyable and well grounded human story set in a fantasy world. Day returns to the world he created in Summa Elvecta (sp?). It is a grand story and a great read.
