The Winter of Swords: A Grimdark Epic (Overthrown Book 1) by Aaron Bunce

Amazing world and fantastic characters.  Full of action – hard to put down!

I received an ARC or review copy of this book from the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

Publisher’s Description:  An intelligent, six-limbed beast snatches a girl away from her family.

An orphan confronts the darkness in his past, while a menace stalks his small town.

A young woman cast into servitude tries to forge her own path in an unforgiving world.

And an inexperienced soldier following the path of honor and duty comes face to face with a foe born from his worst nightmares.

Seemingly unconnected, this small group of normal folk will fight to survive, for an ancient evil has awakened, and Denoril will need heroes if it is to endure the Winter of Swords.

The Phantom says…

I thought this book was amazing.  It was packed full of action and I never wanted to put it down.  The characters were well fleshed out and I loved the character development throughout the story.  I was able to relate to them and cared about what would happen to them next.

I don’t really have a favorite quote because everything was so well written it would be hard to choose, but my favorite character is Roman (an orphan with lots of questions about his life and parents). There was a lot of violence and would not recommend to a reader under the age of 16.  I didn’t love the ending, but it’s building steps toward the next book..
