In the realm of Aerdon, where the kingdoms of Calypsos, Indius, Harduin and Maeryn struggle against diminishing rains, infertile lands and the White Curse, a cold-blooded murder leads to the discovery of an ancient temple deep in the forest of Eravia, which might hold the clue for the realm’s survival.
As the gods give the Aerdonians one last chance to save the race of men, they also ask for sacrifices, and put forth conditions that the kings of Aerdon are not so thrilled about. A great council is held, and the fate of the realm is decided. As politics, prestige and power take center stage in this tale of deceit, death and decay, witness the struggle of the kings, as they attempt to cross the Endless Forest in search of new lands and new races, experience twists and turns and change of hearts, as each king tries to ensure the survival of their kingdom.
But little do they know, real power resides with the Wizard-Gods, the Vizarins, creators and destroyers of the realm, The Lords of the Kings.
The Passage Of Kings is a novel I was desperate to read ever since discovering it and caught my attention right away thanks to its description. Now and then a reader will come across that one book that blows them away, it is a somewhat generic term, but that is what The Passage Of Kings did to me… it blew me away and ever since completing it I have been thinking of its intricate and detailed story and how I need to re-read it! That is when you know book lovers that you have come across an incredible book when you are thinking of it when you have a million things to do. That is why I am already going to recommend The Passage Of Kings to you lovely readers, and yes, it may be early on in my review, but The Passage Of Kings is a novel not to be missed.
The Passage Of Kings for me was thrilling, captivating, and addictive right from the start, and I felt this from beginning to end. The Passage Of Kings was captivating to me from the start thanks to the unique premise of the story and the bewitching literature courtesy of the author, Anant V. Goswami who from the beginning hooked me with his unique story that was unlike anything I have read before. It is rare to find a fantasy novel that is refreshing, and it is even more challenging to discover a fantasy story that does not rely on gimmicks and ridiculous action sequences! The Passage Of Kings does have action-packed moments; however, they are tasteful and in no way gimmicky, which is always fantastic in a book!
The Passage Of Kings is a remarkable book that will take the reader to a fantasy realm known as Aerdon. In this realm lies many kingdoms such as Indius and Maeryn to name just a couple however these two, and the other two kingdoms are battling for survival thanks to worsening natural events that make their lands infertile as well as a White curse. However, soon, an ancient temple is discovered in the forest of Eravia and this forest may hold the answers to the survival of the realm. I do not want to spoil the rest of the plot book lovers but know it involves gods, sacrifices and so much more and this book lovers is the premise of the incredible The Passage Of Kings!
The premise of The Passage Of Kings is exceptional, original, and unlike anything, I have read before. I loved the many themes and elements explored throughout the book, and all themes are explored by Goswami wonderfully, and he does this by lacing these exciting themes throughout the text flawlessly and weaving them with the story. The result of this makes The Passage Of Kings a highly addictive and fascinating read that is never once lackluster or predictable. Goswami really has accomplished the near impossible, Goswami has managed to write an entertaining, bewitching, and flawless story that will perfectly unfold in readers minds like a movie.
Anant V. Goswami is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp his reader’s attention from the first page. Goswami instead of writing long, drawn-out builds up which are commonly found in fantasy novels, decides to ditch this approach and thrust his reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly, but with The Passage Of Kings, the reader will not encounter this issue because Goswami instantly develops his character and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journey.
Anant V. Goswami is not only a brilliant writer for his ability to captivate the reader’s attention straight away, but he is also an excellent author for his ability to lace exceptional twists and turns throughout his story that genuinely had me shocked at points! The combination of Goswami’s shocking twists and his explanatory powers will immerse the reader in the story and make them be able to visualize every detail, no matter how small. This writing approach is one of my favorites because it makes the reader feel included in the story and make the reader feel as if they are in the same situation as the protagonists of the novel.
Overall The Passage Of Kings is a thrilling, compelling and action-packed novel that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights and so I, of course, have to award this stellar gem of a book five stars!
