ON A REVIEW SITE:
Epic Fantasy is one of my favorite genres IF it is done right. The Birth of Death was definitely done right. The beginning draws you in with a mystery of disappearing elvish women. The person who is trying to unravel the mystery is the main character Lieutenant Artimus.
The book really gets going when he finds out a dark elf is behind the disappearances. Things are not looking good for this divided kingdom.
On top of all that, the characters are very strong and stand out against the plot, each in their own way. By the end of the story you will feel like you actually know the three main characters, Artimus, Irontail and Savannah.
Overall this is an amazing Epic Fantasy, but it also beats the sound of its own drum. It isn’t predictable at all, but that just made me like it all the more.
Go get your copy now, you won’t regret it!
Artimus, the head investigator for the elvish kingdom of Erathal, is disturbed when he discovers that the culprit behind a recent string of kidnappings presents the greatest threat the world of Evorath has ever seen. As he develops feelings for Savannah, a beautiful elvish druid hiding a great secret, he struggles to separate his personal feelings from his responsibilities to the crown. Meanwhile, Irontail, a young centaur warrior, endeavors to find his way in a tribe where independent thought is discouraged.
When their paths cross, the entire forest must unite, performing an ancient ritual to combat this new evil. While the world of Evorath deals with this great threat, Artimus and his companions must put their internal conflicts to rest as they work together to combat this harbinger of death. As they work towards this common goal, they find that they each have their own, unique gifts to offer. But, will they be strong enough to survive?
The first of many stories taking place in the world of Evorath, this series gives readers the thrill of an epic fantasy while introducing characters who are struggling to balance the demands of society with their own personal desires. One thing is for sure: at the end of it all, nothing will be the same.
