Description

Sometimes, you’re your own worst enemy…

When Zaleck, a young albino farm boy wakes up in a slaver’s cart after being kidnapped from home, he fears he may never see his family again.

But after a strange power intervenes, he is freed with the help of two other escapees, Arneth, a scholar belonging to an obscure order of master manipulators, and Vellis, a master markswoman whose prowess with the bow is matched only by the shadows of her past. Now, the trio must flee the surviving slavers while also investigating the reasons behind their capture.

Confronted with their captors once more, Zaleck’s innate magical abilities manifest, marking him as a “deathtouched”, one of the rare people who can summon the “Flow of Death” and weave it into powerful magic. However, without proper training, it is only a matter of time until his powers go out of control. Now Vellis has to protect him from himself, and Arneth must guide him away from a tragedy only he can foresee. While on the run from bloodthirsty enemies, can Zaleck remain true to the one rule all deathtouched must follow: to never kill with the Flow?

Death’s Flow is an adventurous tale of survival, trust and grief that takes the reader on a journey into our own failings, and the high price one must pay to fix them.

I really enjoyed reading this, it had everything that I wanted from this type of world and story going on. The characters were everything that I was hoping for and thought everything worked together. It was a strong start to the Flow Tales series and left me wanting more from this series. The characters were everything that I wanted and glad I was able to read this.

Sometimes, you’re your own worst enemy…
Zaleck, a young albino farmer’s son from a little backwater town, wakes up not to the comfort of his home, but to the confines of a prison cart. His limbs bound, his voice stolen by a gag, panic mounts as he contemplates his fate, unaware of why he even became a target.
Yet, amidst despair, fate — or perhaps something more arcane — intervenes as he’s freed with the help of two other Arneth and Vellis. Arneth, a scholar belonging to an obscure order of master manipulators, who wields knowledge as well as a sword, and who seems to manipulate fate itself. Vellis, a master markswoman whose prowess with the bow is matched only by the shadows of her past. Her ties to the nobility are as complex as the web of secrecy around her. An ex-soldier, she carries the weight of her skills and the burden of her past, her eyes always on the lookout for the next threat, her hand always steady.
Pursued relentlessly by their captors, in service of a dark priest from the powerful “Death Kingdom”, the trio must fight not only to survive, but also learn to trust and work together, uncovering the true reason for their capture.
Soon, they find they might even be able to hide from the slavers, but they can’t ever outrun the consequences of their actions.

I was very impressed by this debut authors work. This one was full of action, adventure and really interesting and unique characters. Would recommend to anyone who loves fantasy and is looking for something fresh and new!
