      The best stories thrived when they contained a kernel of truth One just needed to know how to prune the falsities and deceits to find the truth lying at their shared center Twelve Kings in Sharakai is probably the best epic fantasy book this month you probably won t be reading.Actually, I m not even sure this book even belongs to that genre.There s no dragons in it No dwarfs and no elves.There s no magic and mages, nor epic quests There s no Tolkien s big bad Sauron, and the fate of the world do [...]

      4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2015 08 31 bI love Epic Fantasy for many reasons, not least of which is the fact every book is a portal to a whole new world But when you read as much as this genre as I do, you sure get to visit a lot of them That is why, when every once in a while I come across a setting that truly stands out, I sit up and take note And Bradley P Beaulieu s Twelve Kings in Sharakhai made me do just that.Right from the start I was captivated by the magnificent d [...]

      In the city of Sharakhai the people hope to see the Immortal Kings overthrown eda, a young woman with a sad past, fights in the pits to make a living eda as much as anyone prays for the downfall of the Kings and on one holy night she may have just received the hint she needs to overthrow them.Twelve Kings in Sharakhai from the outside seemed so appealing It has an interesting cover and the premise was promising The first chapter of eda fighting in the pits as The White Wolf enveloped me with exc [...]

      I am really not sure if I want to carry on with this series Definitely split 50 50 on it A pretty solid three stars, mainly because of the world building To be honest, I really didn t gel with the characters and at times the writing style annoyed bored me I felt it was a little too long and that there really wasn t enough plot growth for such a large book At 25% shorter, the pacing would have felt better.The premise behind the story, trying to bring down the ruling 12 kings is good and the way i [...]

    9. Kevin Xu on said:

      One of the best book I have read in years Even though this book has flashbacks, which I don t like, I felt like it really adds on to the story since basically the whole book is trying to figure out uncover the main character s past history.P S I wish people would read the book.

      Being a late comer to the Lays of Anuskaya the trilogy is still on my TBR list , Twelve Kings in Sharakhai serves as my first real introduction to the work of Bradley P Beaulieu and I was not disappointed.Initially, I was a bit hesitant about the book, based not on Beaulieu s reputation, but on the book s setting I m a traditionalist at heart, with a love for the sprawling forests and towering mountains of epic fantasy, so the recent trend towards desert fantasy has presented something of a chal [...]

      This was a realy great book that kept me on my toes with exactly the right amount of sense of wonder and plot revelations.The desert city Sharakhai is brought to life amzingly and it is a lot of fun to run through the streets with main protagonis Ceda, who is not only a a small time message runner, but also a pit fighter in disguise But all this is nothing compared to her thirst for revenge upon the twelve kings, the mystical rulers of the great city.Bradley P Beaulieu finds a good mix of famili [...]

      I finished this book a month ago and I forgot to leave my thoughts besides a rating It is quickly becoming hazy so without further ado I d like you to know I truly enjoyed this book I love book with strong female lead characters and even better if they know how to kick ass I connected to Ceda quickly and love how she can fight So we have a strong woman, an intruiging story, an amazing desert city, and secrets together they make a fantastic book

      4.5 stars Wow Wow Wow I think Bradley Beaulieu managed to transcend stereotypical epic fantasy and bring us something totally new New world building, new culture, new characters, weapons everything It just so happens that this morning on Twitter, Bradley shared his Pinterest Board he used as inspiration behind all of the above so it was really cool to see the visuals he had in his mind as he crafted this story It was so nice to finally read fantasy that didn t share roots in feudal England, ya k [...]

      Stunning, immersive world.kDeep, rich historykEpic scalekCompelling plotkExciting ending.kSo why only 3 stars if this books scores so well on so many levels Well, it comes down to the characters I really didn t feel much for them Ceda starts out really cool and compelling She s the mysterious White Wolf who beats the crap out of an abuser in the fighting pit How much cooler can you get But then as the story moves on, she pretty much gets her butt handed to her by just about every single person S [...]

      I was on a skydiving team for a number of years One of my teammates described our performance as a strobe light Moments of blinding brilliance followed by utter darkness That pretty much describes this book for me perfectly One of my own favorite axioms is that a person s greatest strength is also their greatest weakness As an example a person who is very detail orientated can often take it to such an extreme they become pedantic and inflexible to the point where they are ineffective and alienat [...]

      This is a book I d not heard a huge amount about before picking it up but I decided to do so as i m going to an event with the author next week and I really wanted to try out something by him before I did so I have to say that I m very happy I did pick this up because I ended up really, really enjoying it and it s a thoroughly good book with some dynamic characters and relationships, a fairly original setting, some cool magic, and a rip roaring plot Basically it s everything I love in a good boo [...]

      I tried I tried and tried and tried I read 350 pages out of this 720 or so page book, and for exactly 20% of it, I was excited The rest of the time, I was bored.This is not a bad book I think, had I read it when I really wanted to read a long, detailed Game Of Thrones style book, I might have enjoyed it Had I read this, maybe, when I was on a fantasy binge, then I might have adored the hell out of it.As it stands, even though it wasn t a bad book it s definitely a good one it just wasn t for me [...]

      4 4.5ish Wonderfully written epic fantasy with characters that stand out, a world that s fully realized, and a story that constantly moves from one thing to the next While slow at times, and though it has a steep learning curve, this is than worth the time it takes to read Full video review youtu 4ZA1kAk2pVY

      Writers of fantasy books tend to love their mythology I mean, we re nerds It s what we love We love any world that isn t this one, a place where our imagination is allowed to run rampant, where we can create and design entire systems of government, economy, class, politics, and, of course, magic And it can take over an author s brain, be the most interesting thing about whatever it is a given author is obsessed with.I mean, it s not like any story has ever gotten LESS mythology obsessed as it go [...]

      I usually put down my thoughts as soon as I finish a book I just write what goes through my mind at that point I never do drafts, check on them again or change a word, etc With this book I couldn t write anything after I finished it, because I didn t know if I love it or not and what my problems with it are I still don t.There were moments when I held my breath and read up to three in the morning not being able to put it down and there were moments when I wanted to abandon it Never have I read a [...]

      Full written review posted to The Galilean Library Blog.An enthralling world that feels much bigger than the confines of this novel Twelve Kings of Sharakhai is a fantastic read, and promises great things for The Song of the Shattered Sands series I highly recommend it to any Epic Fantasy fans looking for something set somewhere other than Medieval Europe.

    30. Kylie on said:

      4.5 stars I had no idea what to expect when going into this book I knew it had a desert like setting and that was about it But there is so much to love A main female character who kicks ass yet still cares fiercely for those she loves, a great friendship, fighting pits, mysterious antagonists, several political sides to the story, and so much Simply put, a great read.
