Dream of legends, and soar across the world of Ave! For Janus and the other exiles from a modern world, finding themselves in the fantastical lands of Ave was just the beginning. The assault upon the Kingdom of Saxany and the tribes of the Five Realms ignites, as the eyes of The Unifier turn southward, across the seas towards faraway Midragard. A desperate, dangerous time looms, when all will be swept up in the tides of war rippling out from Avanor. Yet in the heart of the maelstrom, several lights begin to shine through the darkness. Some are on a path of discovery, to uncover the power that lies within, while others will brave perilous journeys, to seek out the things said to exist only in the faded mists of myth and legend. In the face of monstrous adversaries, massive armies, and even horrific entities summoned from infernal depths, courage and honor become the sword and shield in the hands of those who choose to resist. Book Two of the Fires in Eden Series, Dream of Legends is immersive, epic fantasy, for those who love to explore richly developed fantasy worlds alongside an ensemble of intriguing, diverse characters. Readers of the great epic fantasy authors such as Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, Steven Erikson, and J.R.R. Tolkien will find a wondrous trove of adventure, characters, and depth in this next step of the Fires in Eden series.
Stephen Zimmer does it again with his second book in his Fires of Eden Series, I had a hard time putting this one down. I just had to know what was going to happen next. Even though the book is pretty heavy, I couldn't bring myself to stop reading.
With this book this amazing author expanded on the world and characters that he had already created in the first book in this series. I will say again, with this many pages (over 700) and so many characters you really have to pay close attention when reading. But, if that is the kind of book that you enjoy, like I do, then this book/series is perfect for you.
Just like in the first book, Stephen Zimmer gives the readers an information packed book with such detail. I'm not really sure how he keeps up with everything when he's writing, but he does it to perfection.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves epic fantasy and a book that has perfect descriptions. I enjoyed reading this book.
