Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
Review: What do you get when you cross the paths of a warlord prince and a bard in front of a vague prophecy and then toss in a meddling goddess and a bit of sex? Something wonderful if The Warlord and the Bard is any indication. Something wonderful, indeed.
The reader is thrown immediately into this rich world that Eric Alan Westfall has created. And because of this it can all be a bit difficult to follow at first, but I found that once can easily catch up as the story goes along. It is a masterful literary device in this case, though, because it helps the reader to feel some of what Jerril and DarkFire are feeling themselves as their worlds collide and fill them with uncertainty.
There is some mention of past sexual assault, so I feel the need to warn for that. But otherwise, this is a great story and is wonderfully written. I’m definitely left wanting to know what happens next.
