I thought it was particularly pertinent since, in my opinion, it's is a little too heavily influenced by A Song of Ice and Fire. Forewarning : I usually review books pretty critically Character arcs, prose, pacing, structure, dialogue, literary elements and things like these are usually how I gauge the quality of the author and their work.

Blending the best of both complicated and reasonably if not fast paced fantasy, M. Ireman's The Axe and the Throne is an absolute killer that everyone needs in their collection. It is the start of Ireman's first series, Bounds of Redemption, which has the potential to move even higher on the list if future books continue to impress. This book will offend, frustrate, sadden, and shock you, and then it will reward you. In the unnamed world that Ireman has created, characters that at first seem ordinary for the genre evolve to become truly epic. From viking-esque warriors, self-determining females, and scheming politicians, the cast is extensive and ultimately very unique—I say ultimately because you will definitely be tempted to think you know the moulds used for some, only to be proven very wrong. Cassen is the shining example, who becomes perhaps the best villain I've read in the genre, the type you end up hating yourself for liking.
