I’m back with a review for Rachel’s Random Resources, this time with a brilliant new fantasy from C.D. Tavenor.
Title: Legacy of Light
Author: C.D Tavenor
Length: +/- 132 Pages
Purchase On: Story Origin
If only they knew us as more than accursed.
The Holy Empire hates the People of Light. Maripes, arriving in its capital, seeks to save his people from certain destruction. The Inquisition seeks theocratic justice, and it will stop at nothing to rid the world of those it considers evil.
Still, Maripes must try. For if he fails, doom will certainly befall his people. Standing in his way? The High Inquisitor, the Empress, and a million subjects all indoctrinated to believe he is evil incarnate.
Should be an easy task.
Otherwise, his son Mono, a soldier in the legions of their people, will face the fight of his life…
Starting a new fantasy series is always a bit of a risk… After all, George R.R. Martin still hasn’t finished GOT, and it’s seven books in. However, with Legacy of Light, the risk paid off. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and look forward to reading the rest of the stories that are going to form part of the same universe.
C.D Tavenor manages to draw the reader into his world quite thoroughly, though there were instances when I wouldn’t have minded a bit more detail. The book promises to be the first in a collection based in the same universe though, so maybe we’ll see more of the characters in later books? I certainly hope so.
Fantasy readers, particularly fans of Patrick Rothfuss, and Brandon Sanderson.
C.D. Tavenor is a science fiction and fantasy author based in Columbus, Ohio and the Director of Editorial Services for Two Doctors Media Collaborative!
He’s excited to tell stories that engage readers beyond a desire for entertainment, whether through philosophical inspiration or social inquiry. And he’s a firm believer in connecting every piece of fiction to reality, whether through their themes or their settings.
When not writing, Tavenor enjoys the more than occasional board game, his favorite being Eclipse.
