Chronomancer and the Time God: Death of a Paradise

Chronomancer and the Time God is an epic fantasy that is marketed to teens but should be a fun read for anyone who loves a good, traditional fantasy novel. The world-building is absolutely fantastic and quickly draws you into the story. The characters are rich, full-blooded, and fully fleshed out. The plot is exciting and magic doesn’t fix all of the problems the characters face. The story feels complete in the sense that there is a good conclusion to this chapter of the series. It still leaves the door wide open for plenty of adventure and mystery for the next books to be a lot of fun.
Of course, I love well-written fantasy novels and long series (I absolutely love Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight series) so this book hit all the right notes for me. I sometimes have a hard time getting into a series because the world-building is not something I like to be aware of as I try to enjoy a story. The world-building in this novel is done well and in a way that does not feel like a lot of exposition to eventually get us somewhere interesting. It is revealed in interesting ways as the characters interact with their surroundings and each other.
Overall, I was very impressed and can’t wait to read more of this series. Given how little I knew about this book before purchasing I didn’t have high expectations. I am always thrilled when I find books like this one that are enjoyable and fun for anyone who likes a good story.
