Men, Dwarfs, Elves, and a masterful plot. This is what you get when reading the first installment of the Icarus series. The eloquent detail in the writing to the fast paced assassination plot makes for a gripping novel. Looking forward to the next installment.
This is a great beginning of a new fantasy series. After Lord of the Rings, I have been searching for a great fantasy series that shows the world of Men, Elves and Dwarves after the fall of a great evil. I cannot describe my thrill when I stumbled upon this wonderful book. David Pauly has created a believable world of magic, but unlike the other series, his is trying to answer the question: After destroying the common enemy, what will happen next? Will the world prosper or will it fall back to its self destructive behavior? Can the seed of evil be wiped out completely? Check it out!
