Jaeth's Eye (The Agartes Epilogues #1) by K.S. Villoso
April 10, 2017
It has been years since his brother's accident. Kefier was only just beginning to live a normal life--at least, as normal as it could get for a mercenary from a run-down town. And then an errand goes wrong and he finds himself holding his friend's bloody corpse. Already once branded a murderer, he is pursued by men he once considered friends and stumbles into the midst of a war between two mages. One bears a name long forgotten in legend; the other is young, arrogant Ylir, who takes special interest in making sure Kefier is not killed by his associates. The apex of their rivalry: a terrible creature with one eye, cast from the womb of a witch, with powers so immense whoever possesses it holds the power to bring the continent to its knees. Now begins a tale with roots reaching beyond the end of another. Here, a father swears vengeance for his slain children; there, a peasant girl struggles to feed her family. A wayward prince finds his way home and a continent is about to be torn asunder. And Kefier is only beginning to understand how it all began the moment he stood on that cliff and watched his brother fall...
My review :- intriguing, captivating and hooking. A whooping 3.8 stars book with an amazing plot and deep and well developed characters. I loved it and would recommend it to everyone. The book grabbed my attention from page one.The plot was witty and clever with a prose tgat made a normally bland topic engaging and interesting. I am looking forward to read more from the author.
