Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Since the publication of The Jackal of Nar in 1999, John Marco has been quietly redefining epic fantasy. Although his Tyrants and Kings trilogy (The Jackal of Nar, The Grand Design, and The Saints of the Sword) has been compared to works by Raymond E. Feist, Robert Jordan, and George R. R. Martin, it wasn't until The Eyes of God, the first book in his trilogy featuring Lukien, the Bronze Knight of Liiria, that he began to fully utilize his singular talent for the super-sized saga and push the boundaries of epic fantasy to new mind-boggling, shelf-bending limits. The Sword of Angels, the third and concluding volume of his Bronze Knight saga (The Eyes of God and The Devil's Armor), is his finest -- and heaviest -- work to date. With the world falling into chaos as the forces of Baron Thorin Glass and the ruthless Diamond Queen Jazana Carr wreck havoc throughout Liiria, Lukien must somehow find a way to stop the unstoppable. The aging, one-armed Glass is practically superhuman since donning the Devil's Armor, an ancient construct housing a bloodthirsty entity with unfathomable powers. Legend has it that only the Sword of Angels can defeat the armor, but can Lukien find something that may not even exist in time to destroy an indestructible madman? No one can write epic fantasy as masterfully as Marco -- his constantly up-tempo narrative, brilliantly complex plotlines, multitudes of realistic, morally indistinct characters, and awe-inspiring settings are second to none. After reading The Sword of Angels, genre fans will never look at epic fantasy the same way again. Paul Goat Allen

    Amazing, Simply amazing

    If you havent read the first two books in the series then dont even bother trying to understand this book. Overall Sword of Angels continues the original story started from the second book The devils armor where a good friend dons this evil armor and becomes basically... the devil. In SOA there is much going on, by the end of the book you will be sad, and simply fascinated by Marco's ability to tell a epic story and this finishes off great. Email me to talk about this or any other books.

    Excellent epic fantasy

    The Akari as a people died out when the country of Jadar killed the pacifist race of scientists and sorcerers. Still many of the Akari live as spirits in a symbiotic relationship with Inhumans (humans possessed by the Akari who make their hosts stronger than they were before the symbiosis took place). Only one Akari was evil and known as the Butcher his spirit resides in a black suit of armor that Baron Thorin Glass puts on. --- From that moment on, Thorin Glass is in thrall to the Akari Kahldris and together they join forces with the diamond queen Jazana Carr, using her money and army to take over his homeland of Liiria. Kahldris knows that Lukien, the champion of and protector of Liiria, searches for the Sword Angels, forged by his brother Malator and housing his spirit. As Lukien searches for the sword, the baron¿s son works to defeat him while the love of his life tries to reason with him and the young man Gilwyn he thinks of as another son tries to reduce Kahldris¿s influence over him. However, nothing can stop Kahldris from preparing for the final confrontation with his brother that will leave only one of them in the mortal realm. --- Epic fantasy lovers will find immense pleasure in reading THE SWORD OF ANGELS, a work that is filled with characters that are believable and understandable. Readers will pity the antagonist who though he committed many atrocities, he did them under the influence of the evil Akari. John Marco is one of the best epic fantasists of the twenty-first century and the audience will find immense pleasure in reading the last book in this fantastic series that is filled with action, intrigue and romance. --- Harriet Klausner
