The Soul of the World by Joshua Silverman #bookreview

by Joshua Silverman

The ancient powers lost to Potara have returned. The Brotherhood of the Black Rose rises to bring Thoth into disorder. And, while the Brotherhood reclaims their power, chaos reigns among the survivors. Six individuals have emerged from the aftermath struggling for control over their lives and a divided land. Kem and Shirin, who abolished the five thousand year reign of the Amun Priests, rule from the golden throne of the Oracle’s Chair in the Hall of the Nine. Dio and Axios struggle to piece together a resistance worthy to challenge the ancient magic which resides in the Great Temple of Amun, and Leoros and Atlantia try to remain true to their hearts and their cause despite tragedy.

But when the Book of Breathings is discovered, the path to immortality is revealed. Leoros and Kem race to capture the Soul of the World unaware of the challenges awaiting them. This time, the gods themselves will intervene.

In a tale where boys become men and girls become women, where treachery and deception are around every corner, and where primeval mysticism finds its way back from the grave, victory is reserved for neither the good nor the evil, but the powerful.

My review:
Jen recommended I read this book because she enjoyed the series and knows I love mythology too. I agree with a lot of the reviews, the second book was a lot smoother than the first. I loved this story, the premise of the ancient gods trying to rise and the most powerful, not worthy, will triumph. The descriptions were so vivid at times I felt like I was watching a tv show, not reading a book. Following each characters path in the aftermath of the first book was heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. Not to mention the new arduous task that is thrown in their way. I can’t say much more, otherwise I’ll give away plot points, but if you are big on mythology and SciFi you will love this book. It has major twists and a fantastic new take on ancient stories.
