This was a great, original fantasy novel that had a lot of fresh ideas in it. The aspect of reawakening magic and monsters was definitely my favorite plot of this book. If you’re a fan of hardcore fantasy adventures or D&D-esque stories, you’ll enjoy reading through this first novel. Looking forward to the next in the series! – Amazon Review
The Peace at Knife’s Edge
(The Breathing World Book 1)
Having killed an emissary from the Eastern Council in a bout of drunken violence, Torik Andorin realizes he has made his last mistake. Awaiting the cruel delights of the torturer’s imagination, he is offered a narrow escape.
Though it will be one with dire consequences. He can never return to his life as he knew it before. Together with his small party, Torik enters a world of danger and conspiracy to face the strange magic and horrors of a reawakened world.
With the peace of empires lost at the stroke of a single blade, the looming fear of a now inevitable war and a mysterious ancient wisdom guiding the way for our heroes on the run, The Peace at Knife’s Edge offers high stakes adventure at an unrelenting pace.
The Peace at Knife’s Edge is the debut epic fantasy novel by James Pina.
