Description

Lorelei Aurelius is the smartest inquisitor in the mountain city of Ancris. When a mysterious tip leads her to a clandestine meeting between the Church and the hated Red Knives, she uncovers a plot that threatens not only her home but the empire itself.

The trail leads to Rylan Holbrooke, a notorious thief posing as a dragon singer. Lorelei soon discovers there’s more to Rylan than meets the eye. He came to Ancris to solve the very same mystery she stumbled onto. Knowing his incarceration could lead to the Red Knives’ achieving their goals, Lorelei makes a fateful decision: she frees him.

Now branded as traitors, the two flee the city on dragonback. In the massive forest known as the Holt, they follow the trail of clues and discover something terrible. The Red Knives are planning to awaken a powerful demi-god in the holiest shrine in Ancris, and for some reason the Church is willing to allow it. It forces their return to Ancris, where the unlikely allies must rally the very people who’ve vowed to capture them before it’s too late.

The Dragons of Deepwood Fen is such a fantasy epic!
This is a hefty piece of writing, so if long, detail rich, descriptive fanatsy with multiple POV's and plot lines is your thing, dive in to The Dragons of Deepwood Fen!

This book is all action and substance, right from the very first page.
The multiple POV's and plot lines do get a little confusing in the beginning but the reduced POV's later in the book do somewhat remedy this.

From the first few pages, I was totally engrossed in this incredibly fleshed out, realised world. As a lover of fantasy, I thoroughly enjoyed this read.

The reason this book falls short of the five star mark, is down to the confusing change of POVs at the beginning of the book and the story lost me midway through. I feel as though a lot of the mid section of the book could have been condensed into fewer POV/plot line changes.

My students love dragons, what can I say? Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this early copy of the Dragons of Deepwood Fen by Bradley P Beaulieu. An enchanting and magical read.
