This year I’m going to host an Advent Book Calendar event, where Jen and me are going to pick one book every day until December 24th. Books we’ve read this year, and tell you why you should pick it up. You can check our progress in the Advent Book Calendar 2018 introduction post, where you can “open” the windows every day and find out what we have for your reading pleasure!
My pick for day 14 is a book that caught my attention because it’s cover had a very John Wick movie poster feel to it. Which I think, is appropriate because this book felt like a love letter to all the best fight movies.
Nathanial Rane is a Legionnaire who along with his fellow soldiers, has paid a very steep price for winning the war.
I loved a lot of the ideas in this book. The soul-fused weapons, the fights, and the price that was paid for winning. This is a dark journey with lots of great fight scenes along the way. If you are into that sort of thing this will be your jam. I’m really curious to see how this series plays out.
“The price they pay for being stronger, faster, better, gave an entire other aspect to Rane’s fight for survival. He’s not just trying to stay alive in a fight, the price the magic demands ups the ante to a whole different level…”
Sometimes it’s the monster within you should fear the most. Faced with defeat at the hands of a demon army, Nathaniel Rane and his fellow soldiers in the fabled Legion Of Swords use outlawed magic to fuse their souls with their blades. Faster, stronger and all but impossible to kill, they turn the tide of the war and emerge victorious. But magic demands a terrible price and Rane's battle has only just begun.
