Summary

It is a time of revolution. The city of New Sarresant simmers with discontent against the crown. In the wilds, a new magic threatens the dominance of the tribes. On the battlefields, even the most brilliant commanders struggle in the shadow of total war.

A darkness is rising. Three heroes must stand against it - or the world will fall.  

Soul of the World is a stellar debut from a major new talent, an epic fantasy perfect for fans of Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan and Brent Weeks.

Critic reviews

"A great epic fantasy debut. Memorable characters, intriguing magic systems and a well-realised world." (James Islington, author of the The Shadow of What Was Lost)

"A magical book, almost overflowing with originality...Fascinating world, fun characters, and captivating magic." (The Quill to Live)

"Tense enough to make your spine crack...This is one hell of a debut novel." (Bookworm Blues)

Love the 3 different magic systems

Davis has successfully deployed 3 different magic systems the can stand alone or complement each other. He also manages to keep each system unique
Story and world are both interesting and the characters are always believable. I will be buying BK 2
