Présentation de l'éditeur

Brothers and gods, Karak and Ashhur created Dezrel to be a paradise of ageless humans. But mortal hubris aroused one god’s wrath, and forced the other to shield the young world’s rebellious denizens from his brother’s murderous retribution. Now, the bloody war between mortal nations and their immortal overlords has reached its tipping point. The city of Mordeina, under siege by the brutal Karak and his armies, fights valiantly against impossible odds. Bardiya—Ashhur’s loyal servant—and his people face a shackled death march across the desert as the demon Darakken plots its monstrous rebirth. And as Ashhur struggles to protect his children and their provinces, he must counter Karak’s ever-deadlier attacks with terrifying measures of his own.

As kings, spies, rogue royals, and religious despots connive and clash, city walls and sacred trusts will be breached—and a civilization built by gods will prevail or perish at the powerful but flawed hands of its creators.

Blood of Gods is the cataclysmic conclusion to the epic Breaking World fantasy series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Blood of Gods 19 octobre 2014
Par johnchris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I'm giving this book four and a half stars.
Six for plot and three for editing.
For me, the authors paid off numerous plot lines and events from the history of Dezrel it wonderfully epic ways. This book has all the horror, darkness, tragedy, compassion and triumph that I have come to associate with messrs Dalglish and Duperre.
There were some editing problems that really distracted from an otherwise fine story. Examples include them instead of then, scull instead of skull, and the chronic overuse of the word holler. There was a space of about three chapters where everything hollered, even a horse! It sounds picky, but I expect more from these authors.
In conclusion, this is a fine ending to The Breaking World Series. I eagerly await the next installment. I'd sure like to know what's going with a certain set of half-Orc brothers as well.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good, but not great 14 novembre 2014
Par Rebecca Davis McClard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I read through Blood of Gods twice before I decided to write this review. There are many reasons, but the main being I want to have every detail down before I could write an honest review.

I would like to give this book 5 stars, it certainly makes up for some of the lack in book 2, but even at four stars I feel I am being more than generous.

This is not a bad story, there is a great deal that is satisfying, but there is also a great deal that is quite lacking.

The good...

I enjoyed the battle scenes. They were well plotted through and mostly believable, sans the deus ex machina of the borther gods pulling miraculous tricks they supposedly couldn't do. I enjoy the intrigue with Cathrine and her attempts to call in dues from her late husbands mistakes.

Minor spoilers

In reading through I felt there was a great deal that could have been cut down and even used to flush out a separate book(s). I feel like the rebirth of and death of the Demon was anti-climatic and little too easily done. The final battle between the brother Gods made me wonder what all the rest of the war was about. If it had been so easy to take them elsewhere for it, then way the battle on the physical?

End Spoilers

I have a great deal of respect for both Robert and David. I feel they are great authors and I feel they did a fairly decent job on this book. I think in the long run parts of the story just ran away from them and they were kind of at a loss on how to wrangle it back in. I look forward to any other books they write together as part of this series.

Brought to life events that were hinted at in David's previous works. Looking forward to the coming books that will compleat incomplete plot lines and charters. (mostly due to space and word count.)

Keep em coming David & Robert

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "Blood of Gods"... the Pros and Cons... 2 1/2 Stars 25 octobre 2014
Par R. Nicholson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
"Blood of Gods" is the 3rd book in 'The Breaking World' series by co-authors David Dalglish and Rober J. Duperre. This Kindle e-book was approximately 689 printed pages and sold for $4.99 at the time of writing this review.

Please Note: the author(s) provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

General Theme (minor spoilers)

The time has arrived for a showdown between the forces of good and evil. Ashhur and Karak (and their respective followers) have decided that if the two sides can't live in a peaceful co-existence then one of the other must go. This then is the tale of death and destruction resulting from this fateful decision.

Some thoughts on "Blood of Gods"...

The Pros:
1.) well written and edited. Don't think I found one spelling or grammatical error and the prose was understandable and easy to read.

2.a) confrontations... many and frequent; both on an individual basis and between massive armies.
2.b) graphic and gory descriptions... not for the faint of heart.

3.) lots of twist and turns, and clandestine ploting... making for a tale of peril and intrigue.

4.) maps... two terrific maps of Dezrel: one of Neldar and the other of Paradise. The maps where done in such a way as to show the land with an almost a 3-D effect. Outstanding!

5.) realism... important character can be injured and/or eliminated. Adding a sense of believability to the story. Nothing worse than epic fantasy where all the main players are virtually untouchable.

6.) there is a ''Cast of Characters' found at the beginning; listing all the characters you will encounter and placing them by geographic location and political affiliation. Much appreciated by this reader given the huge number of players in this novel.

7.) cover art... a stunning image from one of the areas near the end of the book.

8.) a favorite character/side-story... Aully

The Cons:
1.) a picky point, but this was a long read... almost 700 pages. I realize this may be nothing more than a personal opinion, but I was weary at book's end... maybe influenced significantly by the Cons immediately to follow.

2.) unbelievability... I was extremely enthused and excited with this tale until several things happened that simply shook my belief in the story to the core, and to a certain degree in my faith in the authors themselves.

<not wanting to give <SPOILERS>, I'll simply refer to the general event and where/when it occurred> but read on at your own risk.

a.) at the end stage of the battle of Mordeina... Ashhur preforms an unbelievable 'event'... I was stunned, but for all the wrong reasons.
b.) a short time later Karak pulls off his own extraordinary feat.
c.) the ending of Ceredon's battle with the monster.
d.) Velixar's conjuring of a structure to help Karak's army escape.
e.) several escapes at the last moment... where someone or something saves the day out of the blue.

Impressions:
I finished this book in a state of relief (just to be finished) and disappointment. I would not have expected two of my favorite authors to use plot techniques I'd normally associate with a Young Adult (YA) book. And let me state this is NOT a YA book. But some things (in fact many things) happened (as mentioned above in Cons) that stretched the limits of believability to and beyond the breaking point... implausible, God-like use of magic and miracle saves at the last possible second to avoid disaster. And I realize this is a fantasy tale but I'm referring to believability that is within the context of this story.

If Ashhur and Karak were so omnipotent (as they both turned out to be), then why even bother with humans, elves etc. Towards the end I got the feeling that these sub-races were virtually redundant and really not much more than fodder when it came to the war effort... especially when you consider the enormity and scale of things these two deities could and did perform.

I thought to first third of the book was fabulous; the latter segments contained some great scenes, but unfortunately, also areas of significant concern in regards to fantasy story-telling, especially when you consider the level and quality of the source.

I was really pleased and impressed with the addition of Robert J. Duperre to this epic work and thought that he brought a degree of realism and restraint to the saga of Ashhur and Karak in the last couple books. Rob mentioned in the Author's Notes at the end how hard this book turned out to be to write. Having just finished it I think can understand this statement because something changed midway through this book; some fundamental idea, and unfortunately I don't think it was for the better. This was a potentially great tale that had its foundations shaken by some questionable plot events. I'd be interested in knowing if this was mentioned by any of the Beta readers. But of more importance, what will other reviewers think of this effort.

I seriously wonder if the authors will have the energy to carry on with this series... I wonder if readers will have the interest.

As it is... 2 1/2 Stars
