Book Review: Immortal's Discord by Ron Glick


The threat raised by Tarinel's Song has passed, but the prophecy is still unfinished. Once more, the unlikely heroes of the Eastern Realms are pulled into the path of destiny woven by this centuries' old divination. With only two verses of eight fulfilled, great portent is now given to the ancient predictions, yet still none understand when and where the elements of the prophecy will come to pass.

A new dawn is coming to the Eastern Realms - a new God is destined to rise and a great tyrant is foretold to be defeated. But much must fall in the path of the prophecy, as well - including an extradimensional stronghold and even magic itself!

Can the heroes of Tarinel's Song be able to reunite in time to save their world, or will the prophecy's demands be too great for mere mortals to withstand?


My Review

While this is certainly an epic tale of fantasy, and in many ways a fascinating story, it's a bit too convoluted for my taste. Also, it gets repetitive as characters tell other characters about their adventures, which the reader has already read about. It's not a bad book really, I simply think the execution could have been handled better. There are a number of good scenes, but far too many which dragged in-between.

For the most part I enjoyed the characters and found them distinctly different from each other. But though I am mildly curious about a few of the loose ends left behind at the story's end, I'm doubtful I'll read the next installment.
