Read full description of the books:
I've finished this trilogy today and decided to post my full review of all 3 books here (spoiler free) since this is where it all started.
WOW! WOW! And WOW!
This is one of the best trilogies I've ever read. It's definitely in my top 3. I even decided to put a new category in my bookshelves for "favorite trilogies" just because of this book.
People! You need to trust me and read this.
Because it has everything a reader of fantasy/fiction loves. (Well, at least for me)
Mature writing. The writing for me was damn near flawless. The dialogue, descriptions of places, people and things were just right. Nothing too much, nothing too little. I could feel, see, hear and almost taste words coming off the pages.
Mature characters. There's always that book that promises a strong hero or heroine that always ends up as "annoying" and "forced". Well, not the case here -although the author never promised such, he nonetheless delivered such heroic characters that made me feel joyful, tearful and throw out few fist pumps.
I've never read such strong men who could show such a tender side at times, and have it not feel forced or awkward.
I've never read two heroines who were so strong and kick ass, yet.. Still very much ladies. That was brilliant.
Fast paced. I'm sure you've heard before how a book grips you from the first page to the last. Well, I'm here to repeat that cliche. Except, I'll say it differently. From the very first chapter I was Completely. Sucked. In. it lasted until the final page of the third book! It did not in anyway subside. At. All. This is one of those trilogies that you have to read the books back to back, because you just can't get the story or characters out of your head. Yes, it's that good.
Incredible story line. Now that would be a spoiler, so.... Not going there. Read the book(s) yes, all of them. :)
Romance. I see you romance readers -you dirty girls on my friends list- *points finger* thinking "woohoo! Smexy time!" It's not that kind of romance, but I promise you'll fall in love with the development. ;) trust me....
Perfect execution. This trilogy was well thought out. Everything came at just the right time. Information that was withheld, and driving me nuts with angst, was released just so... And it was spaced throughout the entire trilogy, not just BOOM! All at the end, and holy crap what an ending o_O
Angst. "Turn up the angst!" that was a quote from, Tom. My buddy reading partner in crime. Thanks for the BR, Tom. I'm so glad I had someone to vent to! Lol
Twists and turns. there was plenty of twists and turns throughout the series. Some you can see coming and others, not at all. Regardless, I was completely entertained.
Religious politics I found the religion and political aspect of this book amazing. At first, I wasn't sure what to expect. In fact, I wasn't even sure I wanted to read this because of that. Um... That would have been a HUGE MISTAKE! Don't make that your mistake. This is first and foremost... A fantasy, with a nice twist on religious power.
POVs. I have to throw this in here because I absolutely love how the POVs were introduced in this trilogy.
I wish more authors would do this!
I don't consider this a spoiler BTW but if you don't want to know about POVs, skip this last part.
Book one we're introduced to Errol. He is the main character and the POV -which is in 3rd person past tense- (my absolute favorite) is his through out book one. We're introduced to important,secondary characters as well. And I must say, I loved them. Sometimes secondary characters can be underdeveloped, however, not the case here.
Book two we get 2 POVs and I loved it because we're already very familiar with the other character and love them.
Book three -the most intense by far- we have 3 POVs and let me tell you. It was perfect!!
What a gem I found in these three books. Truly. I have found a new favorite fantasy author. I will be looking forward to his next book.
That is all, folks.. :) happy reading. And go read this book!
This is the first book by this author that I've read, and I loved it! I'll definitely continue this series.
Great story (seemed very original)
It held my attention from beginning to end. I would say it was pretty fast paced. The world building is easy to follow as was the religious aspect.
I believe it's still free on amazon, but if it weren't, I'd definitely buy it.

Read information about the authorPatrick Carr was born on an Air Force base in West Germany at the height of the cold war. He has been told this was not his fault. As an Air Force brat, he experienced a change in locale every three years until his father retired to Tennessee. Patrick saw more of the world on his own through a varied and somewhat eclectic education and work history. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 1984 and has worked as a draftsman at a nuclear plant, did design work for the Air Force, worked for a printing company, and consulted as an engineer. Patrick’s day gig for the last five years has been teaching high school math in Nashville, TN. He currently makes his home in Nashville with his wonderfully patient wife, Mary, and four sons he thinks are amazing: Patrick, Connor, Daniel, and Ethan. Sometime in the future he would like to be a jazz pianist. Patrick thinks writing about himself in the third person is kind of weird.
