Book & Author Details:
Call of the Hero (Sanctuary #10) by Robert J Crane
Publication date: 2nd September 2019
Genres: Epic Fantasy
After a thousand years, Cyrus Davidon and the guild of Sanctuary have returned to find the human capital in a terrible state: food is in short supply, the skies are choked with the smoke of industry, and a criminal gang known as the Machine prey on all who dare raise their hand in opposition to the Lord Protector.
When an old enemy reveals himself, the revolt that Cyrus has begun to raise comes up against a seemingly insurmountable stumbling block. But rise they must, for time is running out in the city of Reikonos, and if Cyrus cannot answer the call of his heart and free his home in time…all will perish.
I’m not entirely sure that I’m talking to Mr Crane after finishing this book.
Remember the Scourge? Remember the feeling of helplessness against and overwhelmingly superior foe? Yup. Mr Crane writes those scenarios exceptionally well – even Vaste’s pert bottom doesn’t lighten the mood.
And even though I know (or hope) that there is some kind of epic rabbit to be pulled out of a hat in the next book, I’m just going to sit over here and sulk for a while. Don’t mind me. I’m sure I’ll get over it… eventually.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
