Allmänna fakta

An exciting vampire tale suitable for younger readers as well as adults. There is no sex or profanities, and the horror aspect is not overwhelming (but certainly still there). What you do have is an engaging story, with mystery and an exploration of what it means to mix humanity with immortality. The characters are well developed and believable, with the kids being a solid and important part of the book.

A relatively short read that functions well as an introduction to this author's work, and/or to provide an interesting piece of extra story for an intriguing key character in the series.

The Temple of the Mad God by Martyn Stanley is the fifth installment of the Deathsworn Arc series. The Temple of the Mad God picks up where the last book, Rise of the Archmage, left off. We follow the champions on their quest to enter Durgheim Holt, home of the dwarves.

Plot 5/5: The plot continues with each book in the series with the author touching upon previous events, which I love.

Characters 4/5: I've become invested in these characters, but there are a couple of characters whom I would like to see more character growth. Hopefully, this will happen in future books.

World building 5/5: I love the world Martyn Stanley has created. There are places that are beautiful, and places that are dangerous.

Pacing 5/5: The pacing is steady, with spurts of action.

Writing 4/5: Martyn's writing is greatly improving. I love to see an author mature in their writing. It's a treat in itself to witness such maturity.

Overall 4.6

I was given a copy of this book for free from the author. I chose to review this book on my own, and all opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Yet another epic chapter to the Deathsworn Arc.

Our adventurers finally reach Cormaroth and turn over the Heart Stones to Empress Jade. But times are still tumultuous for our gang of misfits. Korean runs into an old for whom challenges him to the Blood Trials. he naively accepts the challenge believing that he can win having slain Thrax and escaping the Verkreath. He goes so far as to water his sword. He is vested and leaves Vashni in a position where she needs to enter the Blood Trials to regain Harbinger. The band learns more of their elvish company's secretive past.

This series is fantastic. It is a perfect choice for anyone who enjoys fantasy and epic quests.

*I received a copy of this book for free. The review is my own, honest and unsolicited.
