In this gripping tale of faith vs. magic, the Krim 'Tiak has laid waste to much of the Creation. Those they do not take as prisoner they have enslaved, preparing for a Great War to come. Forest, the sole survivor of genocide against his people, has hidden for a year before he is taken prisoner by a city who thinks they are gods. Now he has escaped on a quest to destroy the Krim 'Tiak with only a group of religious zealots as allies. Can his destiny be to save the world if the desire in his heart is to avenge his fallen village? Caught in a world where the battle between those who desire to be gods and those who worship Death itself is bringing about the apocalypse, can Forest put aside his selfish thoughts to bring salvation to a world he hates?

    A Literary Quest

    I am not usually a reader of fantasy. Even with two daughters who are avid LOTR and Harry Potter fans, I had previously read only A Wrinkle in Time and The Wizard of Oz in the fantasy genre, so I was pleasantly surprised to find so many elements of romance, humor, and drama included among the wizards, elves and warriors in Upon the Shoulders of Vengeance: The Journey to Armageddon. James McCann writes in a sensory style that makes even his battle scenes literary. His characters are complex, and each have a history that begs to be told in volumes of their own, but their lives converge in this story for a climax that leaves the reader fulfilled and yet eager for more. I recommend this book to fantasy fans and anyone who enjoys a good tale.

    Muddled and over-dramatic.

    The writingstyle is pretty good, except the author is very fond of using it in the most over-dramtic ways possible. The characters are flat. This book just wasn't enjoyable at all, at times I even felt like I was being lectured on something, though I never found out what that something was.

    A work of art inside and out that you must add to your library!

    Reviewed by: Betsie of Betsie's Literary Page Highly Recommended 5 out of 5 points A work of art inside and out that you must add to your library! I had the pleasure and the honor to read ¿Upon the Shoulders of Vengeance: The Journey to Armageddon¿ recently. First of all the ¿feel¿ of this book and the quality of the cover art impressed me. The cover itself did much to set the mood for the adventure that awaited me on the inside of this book. From the very first word to the last, I could see that Mr. McCann has polished his craft to a point that every word, character and plot work in unison to tell an impressive story as well. The writing is devoid of errors and the dialogue between the characters has been laid out quite well. Although there are many characters in this story that can carry a book on their own, the main character; Marcus the Avenger, is an interesting hero. Marcus witnessed his village¿s apparent demise at the hands of a race of bloodthirsty warriors called the Krim `Tiak. He spent over a year in seclusion until he is captured in the ¿City of Gods¿ and promptly sentenced to death for the crime of stealing bread. Fortunately Princess Kimbra spares his life in exchange for him becoming a protégé, trained to fight others for the amusement of the masses. Marcus the Avenger, renamed himself Forest when he joined the Hauldinian society as a ¿gladiator¿, bound to the ¿City of Gods¿- until either killed or freed. Everyone is equally impressed by Forest¿s unique fighting style, reminiscent of Ninjitsu with the nunchuka as his primary weapon. This ¿vagabond¿ intrigues the princess and Forest quickly achieves the trust of his ¿mentor¿ Sir Theomund, the princess¿s bodyguard. Forest had again found a ¿home¿ until he receives word from his village that there may still be hope for triumph over the Krim `Tiak attackers. Sir Theomund risks his life and rank and allows Forest to return to his people with a promise to return. The princess hides her identity and sets off into the harsh world in search of adventure, with Forest in the lead, who is unaware that he has taken a princess from her kingdom. At the same time in different parts of the land, other adventures have begun. A wizard and a group of ¿misfits¿ of various races, a wild-man and his trusted steed, a former Krim `Tiak warrior in search of redemption ¿ there are so many characters that are vital to this story and they all held my interest ¿ especially when their separate paths merged into a single mission. I must applaud Mr. McCann for the effort that he has put into ¿ Upon the Shoulders of Vengeance: The Journey to Armageddon¿. I recommend that you pick up a copy and take your own personal journey into these pages. As I¿ve said before, this book is indeed a work of art ¿ inside and out!
