I’ll leave a thorough review when I have a chance but this is getting a 5 and will probably be on my favorite books of the year list I thought Kings of Paradise was a brilliant book but I didn’t love it it was just a little too dark for my taste and my “movie in my mind” The book felt like it was in black and white with the tundra and grim nature The setting of this book changed that black and white feel and the writing brilliance was still there This book is just epic and the ending was so unsatisfying in the best way possible haha I want the next book right awayRuka just might be one of my favorite characters in any book I've read in years Jaelen from TRW by Mark Lawrence is the only one that comes to mind immediately he's such a fun and likeable character Ruka is a monster in many ways but he's also earnest and truly trying to help his people even though they would have left him to the elements when he was a baby and shunned him when he was older His magic system in his Sacred Grove in his mind is just plain amazing I'd put it on par with almost any other magic system I've read for coolness factor His Sacred Grove adds so much to the development of his character in addition to driving the plot forwardAs a character I didn't care for Kale as much as the story continued on or as much as book 1 As he grew in his own powers he seemed to lose his humanity as opposed to Ruka who felt much human to me the powerful he grewThe world building continued to be wonderful and I loved how the info dump sections were expertly woven into Ruka's learning of his history and his own growing powerI felt like book 1 was brilliantly written but the bleakness caused me to see the world in black and white in my mind and that affected my enjoyment level The setting of this novel enabled me to see in color and I absolutely loved it

You’re all slaves But I will free you I will drag you from this place kicking and screaming if I must Seuels are hard As a reader I want to know what happens next but when I’m about to pick up a seuel to a book that devastated and enthralled me impatience and hunger mix with anxiety What if the story I loved loses a sense of direction or disappoints It’s happened than once After I finished Kings of Paradise I wasn’t sure how and if Richard Nell could top himself I mean where do you go from there To the inevitable clash of titans Or maybe you twist things and prove readers wrongNell did both He delivers a heart wrenching and devastating story with real believable characters you care for despite their monstrosity He doesn’t give much humor save situational one Instead he gives strong intrigue tragedy and a terrifying insight into the inner workings of the greatest mind of a generation  Kings of Ash focuses on Ruka It tells his story unravels his past and shows what drives him and how he’s been made It’s not a story for the faint hearted as it contains graphic violence physical and sexual abuse mentions of rape and cannibalism It’ll make you hate love fear and cheer for Ruka It won’t give you the answers you’ll desperately need Is he a mad prophet a semi god god or something entirely else I hope we’ll get the answers in Kings of Heaven in 2020Dala and Kale appear but they get just a fraction of screen time compared to Ruka Not a problem for me as I consider him one of the greatest characters in contemporary fantasy To make things interesting Nell gives plenty of exposure to another fascinating character from KoP King Farahi I was right to consider him complex and intriguing You may wonder if KoA is better than Kings of Paradise and as flawless as my ramblings may suggest My answer may surprise you no it isn’t It has minor flaws like repetitive descriptions of Ruka’s preternatural skills especially near the end or few long winded parts of the story with small impact on the over arching plot Additionally in places I found extreme and graphic violence disturbing and perhaps unnecessary And then there’s the ending I’ll brood on it for weeks Was it really the only way That said Ruka’s story made me experience moments od deep and genuine emotion and this means a lot to me That’s the reason I’ll round the rating up and will await 2020 with growing impatienceI don’t want to say anything about this book Because it is a direct follow up to Kings of Paradise anything I tell you about the story of Kings of Ash will tell you how KOP ended Let’s just say that the story develops in few timelines and when they converge Nell will prove you wrong and then break you I‘m not saying If you want the rest go read the books 


Kings of AshRelease date JanuaryThe much anticipated continuation of the Ash and Sand trilogy Follow the long bloody journey of Ruka son of Beyla through the isl. ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review Kings of Ash triumphed over its predecessor in almost every possible way Kings of Ash is the second book in Richard Nell’s Ash and Sand trilogy It’s the seuel to the highly praised Kings of Paradise but the fans of the previous book don’t need to worry about stumbling into the infamous middle book syndrome here Kings of Ash surpassed the previous book’s uality and it can all be boiled down to one reason this is Ruka’s book I have mentioned this in my review of Kings of Paradise “Ruka’s POV was easily one of the best anti heroes POV I’ve ever read in grimdark fantasy” and I stand by my words even so after reading this instalment Kings of Ash is a different kind of book from its predecessor; it’s much character driven Almost the entire narrative was told from Ruka’s POV and I’m incredibly satisfied by this decision Nell offers a deep exploration of Ruka’s character and it makes the storyline feel intimate More importantly this storytelling style shows Nell’s greatest writing strength as an author his characterizations “A lioness cares nothing for the shriek of jackals old woman Now hear this and hear it well—if she had raised me to hate I would kill you and all your kin and no man or god could stop me” There’s something I realized while reading this book It seems that I have the tendency to find well written barbarians highly intriguing and compelling to read The Bloody Nine Karsa Orlong and now Ruka However there’s something about Ruka that separated him from the other barbarians I mentioned; he’s a complex genius with an eidetic memory Ruka was an extremely well written character and it’s proven by how easy it was to root for him Even when he did so many uestionable things with heavy conseuences the motivations and purposes behind his savage actions felt realistic; it really brought life to his character I was super invested in his journey and struggles Beneath his demonic facade he’s an honest bloke who takes no bullshit Plus because of the issues surrounding his birth and physical deformity the unlikely friendships that he built felt incredibly genuine and somehow heart warming One the things about Ruka that Nell did exceptionally well was demonstrate how his eidetic memory capability helped in shaping his character Usually we think of eidetic memory as a gift I mean how awesome it would be if we didn’t have to reread a book to catch up on an incomplete series to remember every single detail we’ve seen or experienced with a clear vision as if it literally just happened Great right But how about pain and sadness That also comes with it Ruka’s eidetic memory doesn’t allow him to escape from anything he encountered; it becomes both a gift and a curse in his life In my opinion this amplified the uality of his characterizations making his character original and fresh in the grimdark genre “And how could a man forgive he wondered if the memory of his wounds were as fresh as the day they spawnedHe thought perhaps this was his true curse—to remember Other people never truly forgave he thought—they only ever forgot the details the feelings the failures But this was not a path open to him” The differences in the cultures and environments of the islands’ citizens enhanced the originality of world building as well as characters’ motivations In a way there seemed to be Norse and Vikings inspiration to the story than before The invasions weaponry seax and cultures in Ascom all reminded me of how Vikings used to behave Outside of Ascom the world seemed to brim with Asian influences Other characters did receive a few spotlighted moments Kale and Dala appeared here too but their appearances were very brief in comparison to Ruka I personally enjoyed this because from my perspective Ruka is the main character of this trilogy since the first book If you’ve seen my review of Kings of Paradise you’ll notice that I had an issue with the pacing Unfortunately the problem was still a bit evident here There were a few sections in Part II that felt draggy to read and they don’t seem to add a lot of value to the overall content Luckily Part I and III were thoroughly incredible and the uneven pacing was completely overwhelmed by the remaining stunning content of the book Before I close my review I would like to also add that Kings of Ash turned the series from low magic fantasy into a high magic fantasy book; there was so much magic involved within this novel The inclusion of Grove I won’t tell you what this is seriously made the book fascinating The action seuences that Nell put upon the pages of this book was bloody visceral and impactful in grabbing my attention Both the arcane magic and the divine power unleashed in full force during the Part III of this book were superbly written creating one memorably vivid and exhilarating conclusion Ash and Sand meet in the land of paradise and Heaven can only tremble at its convergence I truly wish I could say about this but I’ve said than enough I need to be extra careful with what I mention in this review because the different timeframes that Nell used in this book make it easy to accidentally spoil the content of the first book You simply must read this for yourself to experience all the emotional and “wow” moments in their full glory “Success is not your obligation boy Success is often luck and to think otherwise is arrogance Your burden is only to try Face your path with courage and let come what may” My recommendation is this if you’re a reader of character driven or grimdark fantasy get on this trilogy as soon as you can There’s still one book left but I’m already confident enough to say that Ash and Sand is one of the next indie success stories in the making Kings of Ash is an utterly magnificent seuel that made the already great Kings of Paradise pale in comparison As far as grimdark fantasy goes this definitely deserves a place in the big league The last book of the series Kings of Heaven comes out next year and I anticipate its arrival with much excitement SidenoteThank you to the author for putting my name in acknowledgment sectionYou can order the book from UK | US You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions
