THE PAGAN NIGHT

PrintE-mail Written by Andrew Musk

The Pagan Night is the first book in The Hallowed War epic fantasy series. It is being marked to fans of Robin Hobb and Peter v. Brett. The novel focuses on character development whilst the plot moves forward, setting up the series for an epic story.

Tim Akers is a well-established author, having published most notably the steampunk series, The Burn Cycle. However, fans of high fantasy may be unknown to this author. This novel can be seen as Tim Akers first novel into the world of epic fantasy. Whilst writing his other novels, Tim focused on this series, developing it over a decade, and it shows in the extent of the story.

The story follows Malcom Blakely when a war breaks out and his struggle to contain the violence. Whilst most stories of epic fantasy may go down a different route, Akers has created a story central to religion. Whilst this is seen in many modern epic fantasies, Akers makes it a central and interesting part of the story. The novel features all the normal characters that seem essential to epic fantasy. The novel takes a political approach, much Like Robin Hobbs’s novels, as well as focusing on characterisation.

The novel develops some interesting plot threads throughout, and the contrast between the northern religion and the south is explored in detail. It is a complex tale, which fans of epic fantasy will be grateful for. Among the epic fantasies entering the genre, this one is set to be a standout of the year. A tale of religious conflicts and cleverly drafted characters, a must for all epic fantasy fans.
