I don't read a lot of high fantasy books so I was expecting to really struggle with this, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find that I really couldn't put it down!
Valdieron is a simple horse breeders son whose life is turned upside down when trolls attack his village and it is only because of his father that he is able to flee while his village is brought down. He flees to the mountains while clinging to survival and his thoughts on revenge. On his journey he opens a box his father gave him which contains a necklace called the Dragon's Tear and finds an unusual sword which sets him on a monumental quest and has him wondering exactly what of his past is the truth.
Valdieron's journey is an amazing one to read. You literary watch as he grows into the man he is meant to be and you fall in love with this character. Day also writes a great many supporting characters who are well thought out and integral to the story. The act on sequences in this book are amazing to read and would allow anyone with a half decent imagination to immerse themselves in these fights.
When the story came to an end I was already dying to know where the next part of Valdieron's quest would take him so I was very happy to see that the second part of this series was already available to buy.
Fans of J.R Tolkien and the Hunger Games books would really enjoy this series. Even if you are not really into fantasy, I wouldn't let the genre put you off, as it is an amazing read for all!
I give Demon Gates 5 out of 5 stars
