The simple answer would be because this is a book that has everything I love in epic fantasy and that it hit all the right notes for me I could practically end my review with that answer but that wouldn't do justice to how great this book is Now it's time for me to take on the role of the Chronicler and inform you why it's essential for you to read Vaelin Al Sorna's coming of age storyThe Sword of the Realm the Young Hawk Darkblade the Shadow of the Raven and Hope Killer; it's not an exaggeration to say that Vaelin has obtained many names throughout his life Told in the same storytelling style as The Name of the Wind the plot of the book mostly revolves around how Vaelin received all these titles To do that he's going to tell the coming of age story of his life to the Imperial Chronicler a story which began when his father left him alone at the iron gate of the Sixth Order in order for him to learn and grow into a warrior The Sixth Order wields the sword of justice and smites the enemies of the Faith and the Realm It's simply incredible how Anthony Ryan weaved this slow paced coming of age story into an addictive page turner at least that's how it was for me I was engrossed in this book from cover to cover; right from the moment I read the prologue it became immensely hard for me to focus on anything else but reading this book because of the strong gravitational pull the narrative held on me Blood Song contained every wonderful element and resonating theme necessary for a fantastic epic fantasy debut intriguing mystery engaging plot line brotherhood politics religions faith home abandonment dark magic and war all of which were written exceptionally well War is always an adventure to those who've never seen it Blood Song is thoroughly a character driven coming of age story and if you've been following my reviews until now it shouldn't come as a surprise that it's my favorite kind of storytelling narration; always has been always will be I was filled with emotions seeing how Vaelin developed throughout his journey It was very compelling to read about how he grew up and faced all the challenges in his battle school for the purpose of becoming a full fledged warrior of the Sixth Order However my favorite part of the book is definitely the brotherhood and comradeship he found on his journey to adulthood Comradeship he realized Also a warrior's lot You share your life with those who would die for you I absolutely love reading all about a character's growth how they learn from their mistakes how they come to terms with the situation forced upon them how they find and build their own brotherhood; it's emotionally rewarding The characterizations were top notch and that made the well placed cinematic action scenes in each chapter pulse pounding because the characters were easy to empathize withAlthough the world explored in this book isn't that huge compared to many other fantasy debuts out there don't let this fool you into thinking that the world building is inferior The Unified Realm is rich with a history of bloodshed and war All the mystery legends and magic were all introduced gradually and seamlessly without being info dumpy strengthening my point that this is an utterly compelling book to readRyan's wonderful prose is evocative immersive vivid and easy to follow without being too simple making it so easy for the writing to fully absorb me into the book It's truly a spectacular work for a debut and also this book was originally self published; were it still this would easily be the best indie book of all time for me It won’t be easy for any author or Anthony Ryan himself to top this masterwork debut for me but I’m hopeful and looking forward to the day that Ryan reattains or surpasses the greatness he achieved with his composition of Blood Song If I have to be nitpicky there are some sentences that definitely reuired commas for the prose to flow even better But this didn't bother me at all I seriously think Ryan did an amazing job with this book A life without experience provides no contemplation If you have heard about this trilogy you've probably heard about the mixed reception the seuels received especially the last book Regardless that shouldn't change your motivation to read this book Not only does Blood Song work perfectly as a standalone you'll be missing out on one of the finest books in the coming of age fantasy genre should you choose not to read it The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie Malice by John Gwynne Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames and now Blood Song by Anthony Ryan; I'm truly blessed to have read all of these superlative debuts that made it into my favorite debuts of all time listHonestly speaking the year 2017 has been a harsh year for me outside of my reading Ironically I found hope in a warrior called Hope Killer The Sword of the Realm became real to me as it cleaved through my despair The Young Hawk taught me to soar above my problems and as the Raven's Shadow swept across my heart I realized that every second I spent in my escapism was worthwhile Picture Blood Song by NAVARNow it's time for me to put down my pen—or keyboard in this case—and end my review here Thank you Anthony Ryan for one of the best literary journeys I've ever had the chance to experience It was truly an honor to have listened to the breathtaking tune you composed the Blood Song I completely recommend this book with all my heart to every fantasy reader; it's without a doubt a greatness that every coming of age fantasy fan must readYou can order the book from Book Depository Free shipping You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions

Anthony Ryan ¹ Blood Song Text

Blood SongIbate and dangerous life of a Warrior of the Faith He has no family now save the OrderVaelin’s father was Battle Lord to King Janus ruler of the unified realm Vaelin’s rage at being deprived of his birthright and dropped at the doorstep of the Sixth Order like a foundling knows no bounds He cherishes the me Commas matter They are important if someone say an author wishes to convey a particular meaning or concept or image through the words they use in the books they want to sell They are important for timing and sentence structure and plain ol' literacy Plus they make me feel good like I'm reading something worth my time rather than some 6th grade creative writing exercise There's a big difference between Let's eat Grandpa and Let's eat GrandpaAlso this His father didn't reply Walking over to the bell he took his dagger from his belt and struck it with the pommelHe struck his belt with the pommel? Or his dagger? Oh the bell? I'm confused We storm castle walls braving arrows and fireThose walls are so brave I have been known to forgive editing errors in favor of a good story And by all accounts this is supposed to be a great story But it's ruined for me now There's no way that I can continue to read this and NOT look for errors and the errors I find the annoyed I'm going to be so the end result would be the same a 1 star review regardless of how great the story may be otherwise The only difference is that I'd have invested a great deal of my time and would have been all the pissed off because of it It's not often that I abandon a book this early But in barely 4% of the text I noted at least 50 errors Most but not all were missing or incorrectly used commas or semicolons with a smattering of poor formatting and sentence structure issues thrown in for good measure That's just way way too many for me to ignore And to be perfectly honest it taints the rest of the book For example Honoured Sir Aruan greeted me with a short bow Honoured Sir I replied formallyThis little exchange is problematic for me and given the iffy history of correct comma usage in this story I have no way of knowing whether Honoured Sir is intended as an honorific or status title or if they are each stating the they are honored to meet the other as in Honoured Sir And the context doesn't help to figure it out Both can be seen as eually formal greetings This is a comma conundrum caused by poor punctuation andor editing and it makes me over analyze every line which is uite irritating But if you want to know the straw that broke the camel's back the one line that was just than I could stand and which shut this shit down it's this one Sollis's cane snapped the air above his headWhips snap or crack in the air Canes whistle THROUGH the air sighI'm sure I'm probably going to get a ton of shit for this review but I don't particularly care I have standards and this book didn't come anywhere close to meeting them so I'm not going to waste my time on it any Proper editing isn't optional
