    1. Oh man oh man! This is epic fantasy at its best.Nearly instantly you are devouring pages. The world-building is smart, almost insidiously so. The prose is beautiful. The combat is well-written with gripping immediacy.And the characters, o sweet lord, the characters. Some you love from their first paragraph; some grow on you so subtlety that you don't even realize it until you're breathless waiting for their next chapter; and some you goddamn hate enough to want to start tearing pages from the bo [...]

    2. Lately, I have been in a fantasy kinda mood. I'm super sick of lovey dovey junk that I just want some good old fashion blood shed, maybe an underdog to root for, perhaps an OMG moment or two or three, new costume ideas for Cosplay, and then of course MAN JEWELRY!!This book has all of that!!So, you start off on what might be Earth or what might be Jupiter or what might be a jillion billion miles away. There's no telling. They never say what planet we're on and we know there are other dimensions b [...]

    3. This book deserved 3.85/5 stars.Modern Epic Fantasy is something that is yet to be explored for me and I dive in wearing my scoping critical googles. I took pleasure reading this book and it started with a very energetic begining and the middle plots were like tides of the sea ( ebbing and flowing ) but the plot twist and the ending was what actually turned my entire view of the book. Aparrently, Huge amounts of thinking were invested in this book and It Shunned my emotions killing every single [...]

    4. Two Gods walking the earth, one, the God of Order, the other, the God of Justice. How perfect of a world that would be. Each Gods people live in their designated lands, to live in peace under their God in this very newly formed world. But as with all humans we are all imperfect. Even with their very Gods to lead them, to answer their prayers to offer guidance and love there will be deceit, betrayal and evil.The world building was very well done. Every scene was detailed, each building described [...]

    5. A fantastic new world to explore, filled with interesting characters. I initially thought the book started off a bit slow, but later appreciated the depth of world building the author did. A great read for fans of high fantasy.

    6. Audio book version:Not far in, maybe 25% and pretty disappointed. Looks like a blatant attempt at creationist fiction. Cannot be as we all know creationists are not smart enough to write even a bad book. The Christian moralism/overtones are making my eyes bleed There is even a character called Azariah. This one stands out from the other blatant attempts to imitate the bible ever hear the unfortunate line “a dingo has my baby”. I never thought I would ever hear that name again in my lifetime [...]

    7. For most of the book, the following short review would've sufficed:As a fantasy novel, it's average. But so far it's really not a fantasy novel. it's a gigantic thought experiment with a whole bunch of philosophising about free will v destiny, and how human societies inevitably turn to violence. kind of like ASOIAF in the ridiculous plotting, and so far it seems there's very little good that's happening to the multitude of POV characters. Then comes the endingHoly shit, the book is awesome. it s [...]

    8. The last 40% of Dawn of Swords is worth the price of admission (more on that in a moment). The first 60% was a struggle and since this is a 20 hour book, a long struggle. The book includes a cast of thousands (just joking, hundreds) and each are introduced in enough detail that I could pick them out of a police lineup. I kept wishing the authors would say, “This person is ugly and an idiot, so let’s move on”, but I had to listen to a chapter or two or three to figure it out on my own.I did [...]

    9. This book had some interesting ideas but way to many characters were introduced to fast with not enough time for me to get to know them before the author jumps to another. Also the fact I just didn't like most of the characters in this book.For more than half the book I was wondering were the story was going since it was all about introducing yet another character to the story. Alot of them had bad intentions, were slavishly devoted to their god making them stupid, or wrapped up in themselves to [...]

    10. This book was a bit strange for me. I've read Dalglish's first Shadowdance book and Skyborn. This one didn't feel much like either. For much of the book, it read like a history lesson about his Shadowdance world. It was still interesting, but there were a lot of characters to keep track of, and I wasn't exactly sure where things were going.However, the end of the book made up for any earlier flaws. Everything came together beautifully at the end, and there were some great action scenes and inter [...]

    11. I received an arc from publisher via Netgallery.When I first saw the cover I thought this book would be about superheroes.Then I read the blurb and realized it was not.A really great cover. The book was a bit mixed bag for me.At times the religion in the book got to be a bit much.The other aspects of the book such the action were just enough to keep me reading.I won't be reading the second book in the series but will come back to review other works later from the author.

    12. Don't waste your timeTerribly slow read. The characters are poorly developed and one-dimensional. I haven't left a book unfinished in years, even bad ones, and I couldn't even make it halfway through this book.

    13. hate it when my dragon's morning breath crystal triggers a war between an innocent cult of swingers and the gods of ancient times

    14. I enjoyed it. I have to still dive into the shadow dance series but choose to get this one out of the way and honestly I'd recommend others to do the same. Switching from the half orc series to the breaking world gives a new set of perspectives of past versions of the brother gods, and especially the wardens. Highly recommend even reading this series from the start (maybe better?) always amazing stuff with two great authors.

    15. War and love, Order and Justice. This is a deep and riveting epic fantasy tells the tale of the two Gods who represent these morals and how they and their people fall to war. The stories of the people on each side of the war evolves and changes as we watch people change. I saw more people die in this book than I had in a long time, honest truth. I love it when, in this case, the authors are willing to kill their characters. Each move and change in the book was well thought-out and the plot twist [...]

    16. (I received a free copy of this book from 47North Publishers, through NetGalley, in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).I have a few other books by this author on my Kindle, but this is the first one that I've read.Although this book is revealed to be a prequel to existing books, I still found it fairly easy to follow, though I did think the book suffered a bit from info-dumping. I think it would have been worth having a prologue to this book to explain the backstory a bit [...]

    17. By all that is holy this book was frustrating. I got this book through Unlimited. It looked interesting and I started to listen to the narration which is rather good. The book started slow. Keeping track of the large cast of characters was challenging (there were so stinking many). But as I kept listening I was able to follow along. About 25% in it started to get interesting. Patrick was introduced at this point and he was one of the bright spots for me. So I stuck with it but then it just star [...]

    18. Epic doorstopper fantasy and a bit of a mixed bag. There's nothing inherently "bad" about this book. I actually enjoyed it and the writing. The central hook is strong, two brother-gods-made-flesh rule over their own separate slices of humanity. One keeps his people is the pacifistic and idyllic paradise and the other in a much more realistic land where political squabbles and dynastic bickering seems commonplace.Being flesh, people doubt their gods constantly and frequently have direct meetings [...]

    19. It's good to have friends. Reading the afterward written by both authors is a must, as it opens up just how this story and its sequels came to be. Without the friendship between them, nothing would have happened and I'm quite grateful that such exists. Dalglish's world could almost become old-hat by now, having read more than a dozen books based in it now, but what keeps the world expanding is the dedication to using what appears like surface philosophies to explore the depths of humanity. Time [...]

    20. Man, I'm really torn about this book. It's got some intriguing ideas that more or less begin to pay off (it's very obviously the first book in a series), a few genuine surprises and characters that you come to like a lot. There's a decent amount of world-building, and the world shows a lot of potential.That said, it suffers from TERRIBLE fantasy naming (a city called Safeway? A demon called Sluggoth? Give me a break), the writing is sometimes ham-fisted and clumsy, the authors develop a mean cas [...]

    21. This book was recommended to me based off of my other books I have read & I think it was a bad recommendation. The book is about 2 brother Gods that create their children that worship them. I'm not really into religion as a story all by itself. I prefer it as part of a culture. I thought this book was a sneaky attempt to convert me to Christianity but I could be wrong. It could be just a story. The characters were all extreme and by that I mean that all the personalities seemed over the top. [...]

    22. I was unsure about listening to this. Other reviews mentioned the brutality which I'm not really a fan of. The premise sounded interesting, however, and since it was performed by my favorite narrator, Nick Podehl, and also very cheap I gave it a try.I couldn't put it down. Loved the setting and some of the characters. And not all of them die, but those who do do go horribly. Nick does a fabulous job as always. The first chapters are basically introductions to a bunch of people whose names I didn [...]

    23. Bit of a slog really. Last hundred pages of the book only bit worth reading. Only reason i gave it three stars. Most of the characters were nothing more than caricatures really. Actually glad that most of them were killed off by the end of the book. Haven't read anything else by these authors so I didn't know that this is a pre-established world. However that being said, I'm content to never read anything else about this world and I hopefully wish that the forces of Velixar and Karak wipe out th [...]

    24. When I read a downloaded sample of Dawn of Swords, I thought it right to my liking of a brutal combat type of fantasy novel. The sample was good enough to purchase the e-book, but I was very disappointed as the book unfolded. If the middle of the book had continued as it began, I would have fulfilled my original intention to purchase the other two volumes, but no.To me, it got very wierd, as in strange and disjointed.I lost interest and quit the book. Maybe you might like it and stick it out, bu [...]

    25. I received this book through a Frist Reads giveaway.I was initially caught up in the action of this book and very much enjoyed the first 20 pages or so. Then I found the book slowing down dramatically while the author attempted to fill in back story and create a better sense of the culture and world for the book. It did eventually pick up some but the pace was never really fast enough for a 500+ page tome. If this had not been a giveaway, and I hadn't felt "obligated" to finish I suspect I wou [...]

    26. I was not expecting much from the book, knowing that several before it that I read became disapointments. But let me assure you, this is a good book. If I had anything to complain about was the use of modern swear words in the narrative. I always find this hard to swallow in a fantasy novel.David Dalglish introduces a lot of characters to you in this novel, but it is not that hard to keep track of them. For the most part, each had their own distinctive voice and diction. This book is a good one [...]

    27. Received it as a giveaway. It was a struggle for me to get through. As stated in some other reviews, there were a lot of characters introduced that didn't seem to play an integral part in the plot. It seemed like this book was trying to introduce characters for other books. It may have been easier to follow if I hadn't taken so long to read it as well. I'm not going to recommend it for others to read.

    28. Could have been my state of mind at the time, but after reading each of David's previous series' I had to put this book/series down. I was finding it confusing with the amount of characters being introduced in the first part of the book trying to keep track of them all and their relationships, and was getting frustrated with the characters that had relationships with the Gods and/or the Gods themselves.

    29. i got this as a good reads first reads. when it arrived my brother and i were very excited to read it. the cover art was awesome and the book looked great! it was a good book but way to dragged out. i would have given this 5 stars had the author made the book shorter. by dragging out the plot i was ready to put this book down like 300 pages in it should have been over by then. but overall i gave it 3 of 5 cause it was a good book and a good read. hopefully the next book will be shorter

    30. Won this book on .Another new world to explore with new characters to meet. A slow start but picked up later. Loved the cover but I think whole book was too long. I got confused with so many new characters introdused so fast. An interesting fantasy world. Will watch for the next one.
