Book Review: Seven Forges (Seven Forges #1) by James A. Moore



About the book:

Seven Forges by James A. Moore

Captain Merros Dulver is the first in many lifetimes to find a path beyond the great mountains known as the Seven Forges and encounter, at last, the half-forgotten race who live there. And it would appear that they were expecting him. As he returns home, bringing an entourage of strangers with him, he starts to wonder whether his discovery has been such a good thing. For the gods of this lost race are the gods of war, and their memories of that far-off cataclysm have not faded.
The people of Fellein have live with legends for many centuries. To their far north, the Blasted Lands, a legacy of an ancient time of cataclysm, are vast, desolate and impassable, but that doesn’t stop the occasional expedition into their fringes in search of any trace of the ancients who had once lived there… and oft-rumored riches.

This book kept coming up as a recommendation for me, I saw it at my local library and thought I would give it a try. I am glad I did. Thought it was well written, interesting characters, and a fascinating world. I am intrigued by the Sa’ba Taalor. I can’t wait to learn more about them, and all their secrets (what are those veils hiding anyway?) The book left off with a big cliffhanger and I am excited to get into book two, The Blasted Lands. The first two books of this series were recently on sale on Amazon for kindle and I snatched them up. James A. Moore has done a great job with the first book in this series and I am definitely in for the rest of this series.

Make sure you check out both books in the Seven Forges series from Angry Robot Books!

4/5 Stars

Review of book two Blasted Lands coming soon!
