Tämä arvostelu kirjoitettiin LibraryThingin Varhaisia arvostelijoita varten.Mars G. Everson has a lot to offer the sci-fi/fantasy genre. Thralls of a Tyrant God: A Dark Fantasy Epic (The God Engine Book 1) has enough unique elements to make it a sought-after read. A drawback of self-publishing is the lack of an editor to help develop where development is needed and to help push writing through slow parts that don't advance the story, but feel like spinning wheels. Thralls had a little bit of both. Thralls of a Tyrant God also had some incredibly well crafted sentences, and I was surprised to find out English is not the author's first language. Both the plot and character development were well done and have me looking forward to Book 2 in the series. Everson's engaging style of writing has me invested and wanting to follow the story as it unfolds.
It's easy to feel like everything that can be done in fantasy has already been done to death, so it's refreshing to come across something unlike anything you've ever read before. Thralls of a Tyrant God has many familiar narrative beats, but it uses them to tell a story we don't often get to read.
While I wish the beginning felt a little less aimless and the magic system was a little more fleshed out, once the storylines started converging and the pace picked up, I couldn't put the book down.
Mars Everson is great at creating a world you want to see saved and the idea of collective action rather than seeing one hero doing it all was extremely refreshing.
In this immersive narrative, Senn rises to power by aiding those seeking freedom from the oppressive city of the Hub. However, his allegiance is shattered when his own god betrays him, leaving him to face an uncertain fate in the unforgiving desert. The story takes an exhilarating turn as Senn embarks on a quest for vengeance, compelled to confront his past and find a new source of power. Along the way, he grapples with profound existential questions, exploring themes of love, memory, kindness, and the essence of humanity in a world plagued by tyranny.
Everson's writing is both evocative and thought-provoking, immersing readers in a richly imagined world filled with intricate lore and captivating characters. The author's mastery of storytelling is evident as the narrative seamlessly blends fantasy and sci-fi elements, reminiscent of the immersive world-building found in the works of renowned authors like Brandon Sanderson and Iain M. Banks. The result is a unique and exciting universe that draws readers deeper into its intricate tapestry with each passing page.

The supporting cast is equally compelling, each with their own motivations and struggles that add depth and richness to the story.
Everson's ability to create vivid and immersive settings adds another layer of enjoyment to the reading experience. From the oppressive cityscape of the Hub to the vast and unforgiving desert, the author's descriptive prose brings the world to life, allowing readers to fully immerse themselves in its atmosphere and visual imagery.
