Song Of Mornius: Book One Of The Talenkai Chronicles
Diane E. SteinbachPosted 7 March 2020 by the-librarian
Song Of Mornius is a fun, fast-paced fantasy novel. If you enjoy classic, epic fantasy, this is a great read. The characters are well-developed and the plot moves at a perfect pace.
Gaelin is a young man who had been held captive by a man who murdered his mother when he was just 8 years old. He spent the next 10 years essentially in slavery before spending a year planning his escape. His escape, however, did not go exactly to plan. He grabbed an ax from the table and murdered his way to freedom taking his magical staff with him.
He thought he would simply turn himself over to the appropriate authorities and face his punishment. However, his staff, named Mornius, has different plans for how things would play out.
The action begins quickly and draws you in with a rich, detailed world. You quickly grow attached to the characters and to the mystery and magic of this world. The story does not ever drag and there is interesting character development.
Overall, I love the fantasy genre and this book hit the spot. The fantasy tropes found in many other novels are not used as a crutch in this story. The world-building is spot-on and the plot well thought out. As I said, if you love fantasy, go ahead and pick this one up now! If you aren’t sure, or have had bad experiences with fantasy in the past, this is one you could probably pick up and enjoy.
