Exile book review


About The Book


On the fringes of the Verian Empire, two small boys stumble upon a strange altar, buried in the heart of a mountain. There they awaken a horror unseen for generations, that will descend upon the realm of men while it is at its weakest. For Veria is a nation at war with itself, only recently recovered from a bloody rebellion, and the time of heroes has passed. The empire is in a state of chaos, and while its ruler, the Empron Illis, rids the land of his remaining enemies, unseen forces are gathering at the borders. However all eyes are turned inwards. The Empron is not a well man, and there are whispers among the common folk that his advisors are spies; demons that only wear the flesh of men.

Yet there is hope...

In the distant mountains, a forester who has buried his past learns that he has not been forgotten, and that his crimes have sought him out at last. But he is no simple woodsman. He is Beccorban the Helhammer, Scourge, Burner and the Death of Nations, and his fury is a terrible thing.

For when all the heroes are gone, Veria will turn to those it has forgotten, before all is lost.

Review
4/5
This story begins with 2 brothers exploring. The come across a temple. Against their better judgment they go into the temple. They awaken an evil that has been dorment. Both brothers do not make it back. Now this evil is awake, what will they do.
the story starts off way to slow. I thought the prologue was good to explain things, but there was to much. I found myself wanting to skip it and read the story. I loved the story but it could have been a shorter story. It reminded me of a Robert Jordan type story which I enjoyed. I can't wait to read more.
