Isak is a white-eye, born bigger, more charismatic and more powerful than normal men... but with that power comes an unpredictable temper and an inner rage. Feared and despised by those around him, he dreams of a place in the army and a change to live his own life, but the Gods have other plans for the intemperate teenager. Isak has been Chosen as heir-elect to the brooding Lord Bahl, the white-eye Lord of the Farlan. This is a time for revenge, and for the forging of empires. With mounting envy and malice, the men who would themselves be kings watch Isak as he is shaped and moulded to fulfil the prophecies that circle him like scavenger birds. The Gods are once again beginning to meddle in the affairs of men. Over five books we follow Isak's life and the fallout from the choices he has been forced to make - choices that may well lead to his death.

    This series of novels is the best one I read in a long time, with so many interesting characters, making me want to always go on reading to know how they fare. The series is something out of the ordinary fantasy stories, coming up with new mechanics of mortals, magic and gods. The (main) antagonist isn't one I expected either. The reader learns about the antagonist step by step throughout the novels, which matches the nature of this antagonist perfectly.

    Azaer is laughable The protagonists are great, but Azaer totally cracks me up. So does everything he touches. Illumine is hard to tind, the crack intelligence network of King Emin can never track him down until it's too late, but everytime he's portrayed he's larger than life and never subtle. WTF. If I tried to get away with that 'handwaving' in my weekly D&D game the players would crucify me.

Illumine is hard to tind, the crack intelligence network of King Emin can never track him down until it's too late, but everytime he's portrayed he's larger than life and never subtle. WTF. If I tried to get away with that 'handwaving' in my weekly D&D game the players would crucify me. The Ancient Gods are just so human, a recurring fault in most fantasy genres - they have a lifespan of thousands of years, but still as petty and childish as any IRL mythos (Greece/Rome), which is laughable because they didn't really exist (sorry, same as Christianity/Islam, or anything else IRL). However, these Gods are meant to truly exist and manifest their powers in the real world, influence their followers and provide meaningful instruction to their flock. Forget real world comparisons, because they are meaningless. The gods/pantheon are just so human! So easily led by the supposedly under-powered Azaer, a mere shadow. The Harlequins are also a great concept, but they were far too easily corrupted and coerced by Azaer and its underlings, it beggared belief. An ancient organisation dedicated to 'truth' and history, basically co-opted overnight, at the whim of narrative needs (as far as I can see(. I mean, the GODS already had their scare when the Elven Renegade made war against them millenia before, killing several gods, but apparently the entire Pantheon slept through it and didn't learn a thing. Like a totally rail-roaded TTRPG game - never enjoyable. Liked the first book, second book was decent, but thereafter a frustrating read for me. Read the entire series several years ago, but that was staggered as books released over several years span. Rereading it in its entirety has been an ordeal - cannot believe I enjoyed it the first time round (must have become more critical in my old age). Still better than anything I could ever do, but that's not saying much, and certainly not my purchasing criteria. Cheers!

    I got through the first book of this omnibus and just stalled. Writing a review just to remind myself why. A very long involved D&D campaign with a ton of races, gods and their superhuman Chosen, creatures, magic and battles. The number of odd names, lead players and kingdoms did get confusing. This writing style reminded me of Edgar Rice Burroughs. The plot is often too convoluted for it own good, leaving the story muddled rather than a question to encourage reading for answers.

I was glad to be using an ebook because I often had to search out details mentioned earlier that suddenly were relevant. Entertaining but not memorable although if you like magic there's a heavy hand here. The characters were a little too He-man for my taste thus my reference to Burroughs.
