Book Tour | Fury Of A Demon by Brian Naslund | prettylittlewriter

Today I am participating in the blog tour for Fury Of A Demon by Brian Naslund. 

This is actually the first fantasy novel that I have read in a long time, and I only had 3 days to read it in time for this blog post (it's over 400 pages long!) so I was a little scared initially as there are SO many different names and places to remember! However, I needn't of worried, as the book was so good that I was drawn in from the start. 

'The war against Osyrus Ward goes poorly for Bershad and Ashlyn. They are pinned in the Dainwood by monstrous alchemical creations and a relentless army of mercenaries, and running out of both options and allies.

The Witch Queen struggles with her new powers, knowing that the secret of unlocking her dragon cord is key to stopping Ward's army, she pushes forward with her experiments.

Meanwhile, with every wound Bershad suffers, he gets closer to losing his humanity forever, and as the war rages, the exile turned assassin turned hero isn't even sure if being human is something he wants.'
 This is the third and final instalment of the Dragons of Terra series, and I was kindly gifted this copy by Tor Books via Black Crow PR, thank you Stephen!

I haven't actually read the first two books in the series, which I think would be beneficial, however, not actually required for you to read and enjoy this book! Brian does a brilliant job of introducing the characters to you again, and you soon pick up on who's who and who you should be rooting for. 

I loved the character of Bershad, the main protagonist with a clear hero persona, and I really liked the interaction he has with his dragon, Smokey. I also adored the character of Ashlyn, his love interest, and 'witch' of the novel. 

The plot itself is incredibly magical and pretty epic, with some very clever links between characters and a clear enemy that creates a divide. There is also very vivid imagery throughout, which helps keep you focused and dedicated to getting through the novel. The magic throughout is quite unique, with Ashlyn's use of lodestones and the incredible machines and 'creatures' that Osyrus Ward creates. 
It is also very action-packed and gory in parts, with some very brilliant battle scenes.

The interactions between the characters were also very clever and humorous; it added some lightness to an otherwise very dark story.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this novel to any fantasy fan, it has all the aspects that you could need to create the perfect unique world with some great characters. 

I'm definitely going to be purchasing the first two novels so I can see how their stories began!

5/5 stars

Fury Of A Demon is out now, so go and grab yourselves a copy, and the first two also if you haven't read them yet!
