Disciple of Vengeance


Worth reading 😎

A short but satisfying action packed epic adventure with lots of magic and revenge

Janis is dead. But this doesn't have to be the end of him. An alien presence approaches him and promises to give him the power for vengeance. The pact seems worthwhile but all things come at a cost. Upon awaking, Janis has no memory of who he is and a new kind of hunger is inside of him. Janis knows he wants revenge but he's not sure at first on whom or why.

The story unfolds in a series of actions sequences and flashes of memories reminding Janis of who he is and what he has lost. He has a few friends and can tap into an incredible power but reaching his ultimate goal may be harder than he imagined.

The book comes in on the shorter side at around 40,000 words which leaves the reader wanting a bit more from the story. However, in the short time of the book a lot is accomplished. An interesting and complex magic system is established well and the world feels rather robust and lived in.

Because Janis starts the story with no memory of himself it was at times difficult to get full context of who he is and what the purpose of his actions were. Still, the story is ultimately satisfying and enjoyable. It's well worth a read, it would just have been nice to have a little more background and a little more story altogether.

If you like series such as Elric of Melnibone by Micheal Moorcock and Bloodstone by Karl Edward Wagner you'll enjoy Disciple of Vengeance.

I am an avid reader. I love books and discovering something new to recommend to people. I love epic fantasy and horror the most but I will read anything as long as it is good quality.

The Pact

About the author

Hello all, I'm a big fan of old school, epic dark fantasy series like Elric of Melnibone and Bloodstone. I wrote a series built with elements I love about those stories and amped them up to 11. Lots of action, intrigue, and no-holds-barred mayhem, with a unique magic system and philosophical bent. view profile
