Synopsis (From Goodreads):
John Carver has three rules: Don’t drink in the daytime, don’t gamble when the luck has gone, and don’t talk to the dead people who come to visit.
It has been almost five years since the incident in Kabul. Since the magic stirred within him and the stories began. Fleeing the army, running from the whispers, the guilt, and the fear he was losing his mind, Carver fell into addiction, dragging himself through life one day at a time.
Desperation has pulled him back to Afghanistan, back to the heat, the dust, and the truth he worked so hard to avoid. But there are others, obsessed with power and forbidden magics, who will stop at nothing to learn the truth of his gifts. Abducted and chained, Carver must break more than his own rules if he is to harness this power and survive.
Unfortunately due to the amount of work I have at the moment, I was unable to finish reading this but from what I have read so far I bring this review.
The writing of this book is pretty good, it is easy to fall into and the writing is easy to follow, with the descriptions and the way everything is set up, I really did like the writing style of the book.
The plot so far is intense we have ghosts and magic and a lot more, this book is brutal.
We follow two characters, one is John Carver and he is the character we follow the character around the most, he is a war veteran and he has been through a lot of stuff and he is living through the horrors of the war and he is implied to have some sort of magical powers. John is a strong person but with a lot of baggage and to escape a bad fate in his home land he goes back to Kabul. He is pretty great at his job and I like him, he is a pretty cool character.
The second character is Mackenzie, she is a doctor who was working in Kabul but is kidnapped and experimented upon by her captors, we do not know much about her because she has appeared just 3 or 4 times now but she is going through a lot, she has a tragic past and some sort of fire magic, I don’t know her but I wish I can get to know her better and I wish she gets out of her captivity.
Plot wise so far, we are in Kabul where Carver has been working for a politically important person (who aren’t I great reviewer) but things are starting to get interesting and I can’t wait to see where the story takes us, I will be listening to the story after this as well so expect a full review soon.
But so far so good and I can’t wait to see how it ends
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Graham Austin-King was born in the south of England and weaned on broken swords and half-forgotten spells. A shortage of these forced him to consume fantasy novels at an ever-increasing rate, turning to computers and tabletop gaming between meals.
He experimented with writing at the beginning of an education that meandered through journalism, international relations, and law. To this day he is committed to never allowing those first efforts to reach public eyes.
After spending a decade in Canada, learning what ‘cold’ really means, and being horrified by poutine, he settled once again in the UK with a seemingly endless horde of children.
To date he is the author of five novels, drawing on a foundation of literary influences ranging from David Eddings to Clive Barker.
