A remarkable debut which I simply cannot put down... Master of Sorrows is a brilliant and riveting tale of having the courage to find and choose one's path, and it left me wanting more. I recommend this book for lovers of classic epic fantasy looking for a modern voice.
A wonderful mix of the old and the new, and the ending had me begging for just one... more... chapter. I'm very impressed with Justin Call's debut, and I'm looking forward to seeing where this series goes. If you're a fan of coming-of-age stories, magic schools, and the idea of what's right and what's wrong, then Master of Sorrows is the book for you.
A very strong dark fantasy debut that will appeal directly to fans of The Poppy War and The Name of the Wind. It's intense, mystical and brutal
This is an adventure well-worth embarking on, one filled with monsters, gods, deception and betrayal
This riveting second installment in The Silent Gods series reveals a complex magic system that rivals Brandon Sanderson's. As Ainnevog's journey explodes across the pages, taking dark turns towards a darker destiny, it will keep you reading into the early hours of the morning
The Silent Gods series is a 'Wheel of Time' for a new generation, a clever inversion of the hero's journey set in a vivid, meticulously-crafted setting. Justin T. Call is an author to watch!
