When the Aspect of Death, thought to be the last neutral force in the world, joins the struggle, he promises to bring an end to their wars by any means necessary. Book Description:

The battle for power is fierce in a world where mortals wield the strength of dead gods in this first book of a high-stakes epic fantasy series from Quinn Thomas. A thousand years ago, the immortals were slain, their power passed down to a chosen few known as aspects. The competition between noble families for control of these aspects has plunged the land into a never-ending cycle of war and bloodshed. The Tevulun family has been driven to the brink of extinction by the most recent war. When Tarana Tevulun, who possesses the abilities of Calamity, learns of her family's intention to murder her, she flees with the assistance of a band of mercenaries. The Tevulun’s enemy, the Ma’isans, take advantage of her absence to advance and besiege the capital city of Vicrum. Tarana returns to fight for the city, but faces a difficult challenge due to the involvement of the mortal aspect of Death – thought to be the sole remaining neutral aspect. Meanwhile, a young soldier named Micol deserts the army after his first taste of battle. When he ends up in the besieged city of Vicrum, he finds himself embroiled with a group of outlaws. Thrust into a world of thieves and rebels, he must confront his deepest fears and make a decision that will change his life forever. Death's Reckoning is a page-turning epic fantasy for fans of ensemble casts and character-driven plot twists, with echoes of Steven Erikson's Malazan series. Join these mortals as they wield god-like power in a world where even the noblest intentions can lead to destruction.

My Review:

I must admit, this wasn't exactly my cup of tea. The book's beginning was particularly slow, requiring me to push through the first chapter before I could truly immerse myself in the plot. However, amidst these setbacks, I did appreciate the enchanting magical elements woven throughout the narrative. Additionally, the battle scenes were masterfully depicted, capturing my attention and leaving a lasting impression.

I like the author's consideration of how the events in her series would impact the political landscapes. It was refreshing to see an author address the true cost of a revolution, acknowledging the bloodshed endured by the populace. Regardless of the revolutionary cause's noble intentions, Thomas reminded readers of the importance of recognizing its consequences.
