Summary

Morgan Locke, university student, has been hiding his debilitating illness with fair enough success when two unlikely emissaries arrive bearing the news that he is prince to a nation of creatures out of folklore. Ridiculous! And yet, if magic exists...could it heal him? The ensuing journey will resurrect the forgotten griefs of history, and before it's over, all the world will be remade by thorns and steel.... 

The first book of the Blood Ladders trilogy, an epic fantasy with sociopathic elves, vampiric genets, and the philosophy students mixed up in the lot.

Addiction To Cruelty

The performance is great, however the Author loves agony; essentially this is fantasy torture porn... Every little detail of pain is magnified to the highest degree, it's almost like the Author gets off detailing the seizures, hallucinations, and torture the main charcter goes through.

The part where the book was at its best was when the MC was hiding his illness from his friends, and the consequences of not depending on others. Instead, we get more torture.... ughh..

There could have been something compelling and there was a great potential for more, but all of it goes down the drain. Don't waste the credit unless you're a sucker for cruelty& suffering.
