The Omehi people have been fighting an unwinnable war for generations. The lucky ones are born gifted: some have the power to call down dragons, others can be magically transformed into bigger, stronger, faster killing machines.
Everyone else is fodder, destined to fight and die in the endless war. Tau Tafari wants more than this, but his plans of escape are destroyed when those closest to him are brutally murdered.
With too few gifted left the Omehi are facing genocide, but Tau cares only for revenge. Following an unthinkable path, he will strive to become the greatest swordsman to ever live, willing to die a hundred thousand times for the chance to kill three of his own people.
The Rage of Dragons is a pacy, action fuelled fantasy, with some clever world building and a plethora of intriguing characters.
With a low hum of political shenanigans hovering in the background, we follow along with Tau, whose taste for revenge sets him on a difficult yet determined path. Evan Winter manages all the levels of this tale with aplomb, as Tau fights his endless battles a fuller picture of the world around him and the war being fought emerges..
We have magic and dragons, love and loss and the beginnings of an epic story in the making. By the end of The Rage of Dragons you’ll be desperate for more and I for one cannot wait for the next instalment.
Bring it on!
