On a night that begins no different from any other, strange mists engulf Janus Roland, Erika Laesig, Mershad Shahab, and several others going about their lives in a quiet midwestern town. When the mist dissipates, they all find themselves looking up into the bright skies of a new, incredible world.
Without explanation of why it has happened, or any notion of where they are, they embark upon a grand adventure within the fantastical world of Ave. Some find themselves in the lands of the Saxan Kingdom, while others have emerged within the lands of the Onan, one of the tribes in the Five Realms confederation.
Storms of war loom over both Saxany and the Five Realms, as invasion forces mass under the inspiration of The Unifier, a mysterious, captivating figure whose influence has swept across the surface of Ave ever since His rise to power in the Gallean duchy of Avanor. It is a war that will be fought in the skies, upon the seas, on land, and even in places non-physical in nature.
A majestic, epic fantasy that begins many adventures and journeys across a diverse and enthralling world, filled with races and creatures both familiar and new, Crown of Vengeance lights the flame of the Fires in Eden series, bringing to life a bold, far-ranging, and grand new venture within the realms of fantasy literature
Stephen Zimmer sure knows how to weave a tale. Crown of Vengeance is a amazing story about a group of people who don't enjoy their lives and who really wish for more. I mean don't we all at some point? All of the sudden this mist appears and they walk into it. As soon as they do they are wisked away to another world, but is this world the one they have been waiting for, or is it worse then what they were already living? (Alright you know for a fact I'm not going to give any spoilers, so read this book to find out what happens!)
Stephen Zimmer is an amazing author, who can bring his characters to life right inside the pages of these incredible books. Crown of Vengeance was really hard to put down, even after I had finished it. I need more of this story.
This is a tremendous fantasy novel and defiantly a must read for anyone that loves fantasy novels!
I will say this though, the length was a bit to much for me at some points. Its over 500 pages long and when I first got the book I looked at it in a bit of shock. I couldn't wait to read it but the page number frighted me a bit. But, when I started Crown of Vengeance, I seriously couldn't stop turning the pages.
The plot along with its incredible thought out characters made this book majorly Epic for me and this book is only the beginning for this series!
