The Relics of Nanthara: Book 2: Sacrifice of Heroes by Nick Giannaras Book Review

Genre: Christian Fantasy
Recommendation: Excellent

Originality – 5/5
Writing Style – 5/5
Plot – 5/5
Characters – 5/5
Aesthetics – 3/5

Giannaras doesn’t pull any punches!
Most sequels don’t rise to the quality of their predecessors, but Sacrifice of Heroes is the exception. Book 1, Secrets Revealed, definitely had a lot going for it and Sacrifice of Heroes capitalizes on that and takes the storytelling to next level.
With the Crown of Sovereign successfully in hand, our mixed party of heroes must now make it safely back to their allies without the Dark One intercepting their prize. Along the way, they’ll hazard adventure after adventure, meeting interesting and dangerous people and maybe even finding more clues on who the Dark One is and how to defeat him.
With trolls, savage beasts, skeleton zombies, and evil sorcerers standing in their way, who will make it home alive? What new allies will they gain along the way? And who will still be standing at the end of the Dark One’s attack?
Besides the epic and action-filled plot, the interaction between Giannaras’ characters continues to be a high point. Whereas there’s not as much humor in this one, you’ll still enjoy the love-hate relationship between many of the party members.
I’m giving Nick Giannaras’ The Relics of Nanthara: Book 2: Sacrifice of Heroes a recommendation of Excellent. If you haven’t read Secrets Revealed, pick it up and then hurry on Sacrifice of Heroes. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the ride.
Sacrifice of Heroes is available as an e-book from MuseItUp Publishing.
