Review: Promise of Blood: Sucks you in and hard to put down

PoB-new-color-e1370628441150I recently finished reading Brian McClellan’s Promise of Blood. I bought it one night after reading a review from Howard Tayler, who highly recommended it. One look at the cover tagline–“The age of kings is dead, and I have killed it”–and I knew I was in trouble.

I was sucked in immediately and found it hard to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed the magic system, story telling, twists, and turns.  It’s easily one of the best books I’ve read so far this year.

The characters are memorable and believable, but what I enjoyed most the was gripping way I was sucked into the world. McClellan does an expert job of creating a world where it feels like anything can happen.
