From “a new master storyteller” comes the beginning of an epic fantasy saga of blood, honor, and destiny… “The Sixth Order wields the sword of justice and smites the enemies of the Faith and the Realm.” Vaelin Al Sorna was only a child of ten when his father left him at the iron gate of the Sixth Order. The Brothers of the Sixth Order are devoted to battle, and Vaelin will be trained and hardened to the austere, celibate, and dangerous life of a Warrior of the Faith. He has no family now save the Order.Vaelin’s father was Battle Lord to King Janus, ruler of the unified realm. Vaelin’s rage at being deprived of his birthright and dropped at the doorstep of the Sixth Order like a foundling knows no bounds. He cherishes the memory of his mother, and what he will come to learn of her at the Order will confound him. His father, too, has motives that Vaelin will come to understand. But one truth overpowers all the rest: Vaelin Al Sorna is destined for a future he has yet to comprehend. A future that will alter not only the realm, but the world.

I was completely taken aback on how much I enjoyed this book. It was highly recommended to me from a fellow Epic Fantasy enthusiast, but I tried not to get my hopes up. It's been a long time since I've found a fantasy book that I love that isn't written by Brandon Sanderson. Blood Song went beyond a...

4.0 Excellent fantasy novel
Blood Song combines elements of the Game of Thrones and Star Wars universes, with a narrative style that hearkens back to Interview with a Vampire. The first half of the story was really engaging, as the main character goes through the battle school of the 6th Order. The remainder of the story was a...
