The Gods are crotchety!

By Alexander.Hollins, member

May 9, 2015: Lyncia is your typical spoiled princess chafing under a military despot dad and crying the inability to do what the princes do.

Until she finds that her father is a LOT more brutal than she had even feared. And the old gods are real. And . . .  even more brutal than her father.

Now in the company of a former guard and a foreign monk, Lyncia wars with what she has been taught, what she feels, and what she is learning to be true.

The writing is pretty well polished, no typos or grammar issues. The tone keeps a decent dramatic turn with occasional pieces of dark humor, but never overwhelming. LOTS AND LOTS of lore and worldbuilding slowly slide into the narrative piece by piece. I’m hooking, and waiting for more.
