Thorik is hunted for changing the future and the past, causing mass chaos centuries away from him. To stop these ramifications, E’rudites search for him in hopes of using their powers to prevent his birth and therefore preventing him from his actions in the first place.
Unsure how to evade those pursuing him, Thorik retreats into a city whose citizens live in extreme poverty and controlled by a cruel overlord. In his attempt to help free them from their plight, he finds he exposes himself and those he cares about to the powers of the E’rudites.
Book lovers today I am so excited to be sharing another book by Anthony G. Wedgeworth, the exceptional author of the Altered Creatures series and many more books. Wedgeworth is an author whose work I have grown to adore over the last few months. Ever since reading the first book in the series called Fate of Thorik I was hooked, and with every book I have read so far I find myself becoming even more so, and this is thanks to Wedgeworth’s electrifying literature. Prey of Ambrosius is the book I am sharing with you lovely readers today, and it is book five in the series! Yes five books… I am in deep! Very rarely do I read a series that has more than three books, so the fact that I am on the fifth of a sixth part series shows us, readers, that Wedgeworth’s Altered Creatures series is as great as I say it is! In my previous reviews I have discussed what I loved about each book, and so today I am going to focus on what I love about Prey of Ambrosius and how I am obsessed with where the author has taken the series! I am so obsessed with the Altered Creatures series and wish that I knew somebody who has read it too because I need to vent! So do not let me down book lovers, head over to my review for Fate of Thorik, read about the premise and download the book (it is currently free I believe) and then start commenting your thoughts because I need to discuss it with somebody other than myself!
Prey of Ambrosius is a darker more atmospheric novel compared to the other four books in the series, and this is thanks to the protagonist’s actions. Thorik is a character that the reader will follow in every book and he has been on an epic, turbulent journey, and recently he has done something that changed the future as well as the past and it has made many people very angry. Thorik hates himself, he is being haunted by his doubts and grief, for example, in chapter two the reader is given insight into Thorik’s mindset and it is not a great one. Thorik is devastated, and this chapter will move its reader’s thanks to Thorik’s emotive and honest language that will resonate with many people, especially with those that struggle with feelings of not feeling worthy, grief, abandonment and many more.
The reader will follow Thorik after the aftermath of the big event (which I cant spoil!), and on his path, Thorik will find that he is being pursued and so he ‘retreats into a city whose citizens live in extreme poverty and controlled by a cruel overload.’ While there Thorik will try his best to help them but what he does not know is that E’rudites, a pivotal character in the novel is trying to prevent Thorik ever being born. The reader will be taken on a thrilling, unpredictable journey that will ensure you won’t be able to put the book down!
Prey of Ambrosius is a sensational book in which the author once again entertained me. From the start of Prey of Ambrosius I noticed an instant change in the writing style, I noticed that the book was more gritty, more emotive and definitely more atmospheric. The atmospheric story that unfolded was laced with suspense and tension, and although this could seem overpowering, it was not. In fact, Wedgeworth knew precisely how to bring a gritty side to the story while not scaring his readers away which shows that he is connected with his readers and knows what they would like in the evolition of the story. Before I proceed, I just wanted to quickly mention that at the beginning of the book there is a dedication and it is made out to the readers and fans of the story and I thought that was so sweet! I will not write the quote out however it does say that the book is for those that have followed Thorik’s journey and that really touched me. I have read five books in the series so far and followed Thorik on his many adventures, and it has been such a fantastic reading experience so to read that was so lovely. Nonreaders may think fans of books are crazy because they are not real and sure, they are not, but you can still feel connected to a story and still adore the characters and their journey so long story short… thank you Anthony!
In Prey of Ambrosius, the author Wedgeworth perfectly laced Thorik’s logs throughout the book, and I thought this was genius. It is a genius plot device because it gives the reader even more insight into the fascinating character that is Thorik, to read his inner thoughts was incredible in my opinion and even more incredible that Wedgeworth decided to do this.
To summarize my thoughts on Prey of Ambrosius, I would say if you are a reader who is looking to get lost in a fast-paced fantasy series that combines emotive text with thrilling text then Prey of Ambrosius and the previous four books are for you! Of course Prey of Ambrosius gets a five-star rating from me so have a read book lovers! You will not regret it!
