It was the 75th year of Alberoth when the AsZar summoned the Guardians. There was an imbalance in the lands of Faélondul. The Zaxson, Draizeyn Vereux covered the lands in a pall of darkness. There was a plan to exterminate the infestation in Nazil and beyond, a plan to eradicate the humans.
Led by the priestly cast called the Cha, the Xenophobic Nazilians dominating Faélondul justified their brutalities against the humans. But when the First Chosen of the elite guard of Nazil discovers Brahanu Ravenot lost near the gates of the city, not only his life but also his entire system of beliefs is forever changed. With darkness covering the lands, can love—forbidden, yet eternal—save both humans and Nazilians?
A breath-taking adult fantasy, The Rise of Nazil is the debut release from author Aaron-Michael Hall and it’s one you’d do well to remember. A tale in which Hall takes obvious delight, there’s a distinctly satisfying precision with which he has imagined his world of Faélondul. Not only taking great pains with descriptions that bring a mythical feel to his distant setting, but in creating a military regime and cultural traditions with insightfully nuanced characteristics that are both enthralling and plausible. Discerning fans of this popular genre will find the most loved devices of fantasy are to be found within Hall's narrative, but it’s his ability to inject a gritty sense of realism that makes it so endearing. Faélondul is a world imbued with good and evil, that permeates through a richly layered social strata, but few facets of human nature have changed and he captures them all. Desire, ambition, greed, each masterfully manifested in a host of vividly rendered characters that make for a riveting read whilst neatly sidestepping the pitfalls of predictability.
Crafted like a mound of gems picked from the best in genre, The Rise of Nazil makes for a scintillating read. Boding well for future releases from Aaron-Michael Hall, it is recommended without reservation.
