Elpis by Aaron McGowan – book review [video]

& Another Great Review:

A truly fantastical read.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I managed to snag a copy during a free release special and honestly, I was hooked from the first chapter. There isn’t a dull moment in this action packed mind boggling adventure. Its chock full of twists and the ending will leave you breathless. Each character is sculpted in such a way it’s hard not to become attached. Without revealing too much I’ll add to the fact that literally ANYTHING can happen and does happen in this amazing story line. From start to finish and from page to page you’ll be guessing as to what will happen next and even if you make a million guesses, you still won’t be correct. Arron is a very unique author who is able to captivate his readers and immerse them into the fantasy world of the Elpis. A place where magic is real and any manner of creature both familiar and his own creation exist.

There’s love, hate, bitterness, revenge, blood, and laughter. With a magic system much like the card game Magic the Gathering characters in the book use Nexi stones or magical stones of various colors to fuel various types of magic. The novel is both easy to follow and entrancing with each sentence painting a picture in your mind’s eye of expansive beautiful cities, lush green farm lands, and terrifying and elaborate battles. It does have its light hearted moments which help to balance out the serious tone the book takes on at times. So descriptive and imaginative is the language that you’ll find yourself, hours into the book without realizing so much time had passed. For any fantasy novel lover out there I highly, highly recommend giving this book a chance. You won’t regret it at all. I’m off to purchase the second book in the series. Happy reading everyone!
