So, I’m not sure if my prayers for books actually funnel towards D.B. Jackson, but he has melded everything I love into one series and I absolutely cannot wait for the next one. Time travel + epic fantasy = perfection. And he has achieved it.
I’m mostly going to keep this review short and sweet. This book is a wonderful follow up from Time’s Children, and I think does a great job of setting up the next book. I love the world-building in this series so much—it’s comprehensive and clearly complicated, and the best thing is that it doesn’t overpower the narrative. This book definitely did a great job of adding more about the world, and rounding out some of the information about the demons. Additionally, and I’ll be brief on this so no spoilers, but I love the character arcs in this book, especially for Dröe.
Overall, this is great book for anyone who loves high or epic fantasy, and wants to read something with a new twist (seriously, I love the time travel aspect of this series).
