Overview

In the ancient and wild world of Glenryth, Fey creatures and a nascent humanity have come into conflict, the motives of each other mutually unfathomable and alien.

Technological cults and Monotheistic religions are worshipped, any suspicion of pagan or Fey magickal taint is reviled. Prophets spread far and wide, offering hope and comfort to the beleaguered masses. Mankind is not totally separate from the energies that suffuse Glenryth, as an unfortunate few are born as Touched.

When local dwarves put a curse upon the town of High Peaks, Remus, the aloof and irritable woodcutter and sage, must try and ebb the tide of xenophobic anger that could engulf himself and any other folk that are labelled as outcasts. But when a caravan of technocrat pilgrims fails to arrive, and the body of a local child is found in the woodlands, Remus, along with the capricious Touched Elaina, must try to understand the nature of morality in a world cloaked in suspicion and fear, and, ultimately, to prevent a brewing war that could send the region spiraling into chaos and destruction.

This is an updated edition with a new cover.

    R2R (LoP) : Steel, Magick and Faith: Book 1 of the Remus Rothwyn

    R2R (LoP) : Steel, Magick and Faith: Book 1 of the Remus Rothwyn Chronicles

    I received a free copy, through LoP, in exchange for a review.

    The Fey creatures have lived a harmonious life, but then the introduction of humans threaten to destroy their way of life. Humans are quickly evolving and starting to encroach upon their lands. There was once a treaty, to pay homage and respect to the Fey kind, but that is slowly being forgotten, upsetting the natural flow of life. Not only do you have this aspect of life, there are also humans that are born with a magically side, called Touched and they are looked down upon, by their fellow humans; anything relating to magick and the Fey are not something that they want to be apart of their daily life and some are killed. One incident is sparking an almost all out war, between the local dwarves and humans of the area. Remus, the woodcutter and philosopher, feels that it is his duty to stop this, knowing that nothing good will ever come if a war breaks out. Elaina, a Toucher and one of his only friend feels that it is utmost importance that they try to stop this as well. This begins the story.

    'Every piece of information or gossip he had managed to collect from travelers or from old lore had been inscribed. For millennia, mankind had spread across Glenryth, surrounded by the unexplainable wild. Why was so much unresearched? It was known that there were others, sorcerous forces at work beyond men, different species of Fey such as dwarves, elves and various beasts, had been identified. But no one pried. It was probably common sense. Remus had, however, heard of men and women who tried to explore the outside world beyond roads and pilgrim paths...Mostly they met bad ends.'

    Great introduction, to a new world, with separate societies of people, living side by side and how easily conflict arises. Remus is an interesting character, with not a lot of background information and his relationship with Elaina is strange but works. Can't wait to read the next one!
