Review: Awaken the Three

Awaken the Three

Highglade #2

by D.L. Jennings

Beyond the Wastes of Khulakorum, a storm is rising . . .

The Shaper of Ages is gone, and along with her, the Breaker-yet gods are not the only threat to the peace of the living.

Aldis Tennech, the once-great general of the armies of Gal’dorok, finds himself in exile. His only hope of reclaiming glory lies in the hands of a self-proclaimed emperor, and the unearthly powers that put him there. Meanwhile, improbable alliances are forged in the north as unexpected enemies rear their heads and threaten ruin-with a single thread in common, connecting them all.

In the sequel to his award-winning novel Gift of the Shaper, D. L. Jennings once again brings to life an epic tale of war and chaos as earthly armies fight for otherworldly prizes. Ancient powers lying dormant must be called upon, bringing strength to those who need it and conquest to those who seek it; battles will rage and cities will fall, but only the most desperate or reckless would seek . . .

. . . to awaken the three.



5 out of 5

Awaken the Three is perfect for lovers of epic fantasy. If you’re a fan of The Lord of the the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit you’ll absolutely love this book. I do highly recommend reading book one as well, but it’s not necessary to enjoy reading this. A rich world, vibrant characters, and a well paced story that will have you turning pages cover to cover. Don’t pass this one by.
