The Rage That Follows is Nathaniel Badertscher's debut novel about The Knights Seraphin, monster hunters sworn to the goddess Seraphe. Joren, a shepherd’s son, sees a face within the woods that frightens him to his very core. Sergeant Garret Rhys of The Knights Seraphin and his company have arrived on their way to their mission and decide to stay for a night at the shepherd’s hall to rest before moving on with their quest, not knowing that there is an evil that none of them are prepared for.
Nathaniel weaves a gripping tale full of fear, tragedy, and loss. This is an incredible tale with extraordinary characters. I was thoroughly taken with this story. As the story unfolded, I could not put this book down. The characters were engrossing and the dialogue between the characters was such that I felt the emotions of each character. I am truly looking forward to more of Nathaniel's work.
Cautionary note: there is quite a bit of gore, for those not into that. Also, there aren't any sex scenes for those looking for that.
I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Third volume of a four-book series, this novel is basically one long battle with some progress with Roo's and Erik's individual stories. Revelations and intrigue abound with some further character development.
It's worth reading the previous two volumes to fully comprehend what this book is about and, although not a great fan of books about battles and fighting, I found it important to see it through to the end (640 pages plus). The fourth part awaits.
This third book in the Spelldrift series is just as engaging as its predecessors. It's full of action and suspense, twists and turns, and lots of snark. Asher's quips are some of my favorite lines - you never know what our crazy warlock will say next!
This is an ongoing story and this one picks up where book two left off. I thought I had a clue where this one would go, but I was so wrong. With Matt facing execution, the coven may have to enlist the help of the last person Alix wants help from - her dark and twisted Aunt.
Cross has shown just how talented she is with her fantastic world building, interesting characters, and hold your breath, twisty story line. It's a story of magic, friendship, love, and family. And after that ending, I'll be anxiously awaiting the next book in this terrific series.
