Blog Tour: The Soul of the World by Joshua Silverman

I received a copy of The Soul of the World in exchange for my review.

The tone is much better in this book, the present tense has gone which allowed this book to flow a lot easier than its predecessor in terms of pacing, there was also much less of the switching between characters, which was again an improvement on the first book where paragraphs could seem to be a bit choppy.

I feel that in this case the second book is definitely needed, and it allowed Silverman to really explore his world and his characters, particularly as there were very few additional characters, allowing him to devote more time to the ones he has already created.

There's plenty of action and adventure in both of the books in the series so far, and I suspect that the third book will be even better, which can only be a good thing, and if the improvement is as marked as that between the first and the second books then I really want to see it!




by Joshua Silverman

The ancient powers lost to Potara have returned. The Brotherhood of the Black Rose rises to bring Thoth into disorder. And, while the Brotherhood reclaims their power, chaos reigns among the survivors. Six individuals have emerged from the aftermath struggling for control over their lives and a divided land. Kem and Shirin, who abolished the five thousand year reign of the Amun Priests, rule from the golden throne of the Oracle’s Chair in the Hall of the Nine. Dio and Axios struggle to piece together a resistance worthy to challenge the ancient magic which resides in the Great Temple of Amun, and Leoros and Atlantia try to remain true to their hearts and their cause despite tragedy. But when the Book of Breathings is discovered, the path to immortality is revealed. Leoros and Kem race to capture the Soul of the World unaware of the challenges awaiting them. This time, the gods themselves will intervene. In a tale where boys become men and girls become women, where treachery and deception are around every corner, and where primeval mysticism finds its way back from the grave, victory is reserved for neither the good nor the evil, but the powerful.
