Awaken the Three


Loved it! 😍

This is a sweeping, epic fantasy on the scale of Tolkien and Erikson that is sure to satisfy.

Awaken the Three began a little ahead of me, having not read book one, so I took a little time to explore the maps and glossaries provided by the author. I'm so very glad he did because the complex, multi-story plot lines, and multi-dimensional characters deserve a reader who comprehends what is going on when beginning book two before book one. 

Be that as it may, the beautifully constructed mytho-fantasy action-intense story grabs you early and refuses to let go. Jenning's writing style is contemporary enough to allow pages to turn quickly, while just lyrical enough to add a dramatic and archaic ambience to the completely immersive landscape.

MC Aldis Tennech is the perfect combination of staunch military general and uncertain commoner, who seeks to reclaim his former glory regardless of the cost. Awakening The Three may not be the best answer to his problem; the perils of doing so are greater than he imagines. Is his confidence stronger than the danger he faces?

This is a sweeping, epic fantasy on the scale of Tolkien and Erikson. There's far far more for a reader to explore than characters and places. There are gods and unearthly powers; ancient mysteries and entire cultures; tales of wars long past, suspense, battles, betrayals, deaths. If you long to lose yourself into another time and place, the Highglade Series is one you savor again and again.
