He responds with Iris own King's pawn and I continue with the standard opening. Black and White. She was short of breath again, moving her king's pawn two squares forward with an effort. Chess, he says, was brought here from outer space by aliens and, if we don't promote it with enough vigour, those same aliens could get the hump, take their board home and smite us mightily for being one move short of a King's pawn opening.

Makes you wonder where reality ends. After I take a brief break to spend time with friends and family, I work for a few more hours and then crash for the night.

One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand. There is a love in authors to complain about the trials of our work. It is our passion.

Good question, with all the awe-inspiring kingdom to view, the warlord battering at the gate, centaurs roaming the fields, and elves ruling a corrupt empire that Prince Hairem wants to change, idealistically, from within.

It's meticulously thought out, with tons of PoV's, a lot of plot and attempts to weed out the unstable or illegal elements of the empire, like the use of necromancy, or just trying to prevent yourself from being on the assassin's list. It reads a lot like a political intrigue, with humans on the bottom and the elves being the long, long standing old-guard.

In that respect, it reminds me a lot of the notable The Goblin Emperor without the goblin.

At least with this one, we've got actual battles and a very memorable warlord to contend with, too. And mute, ass-kicking servant Alvena, of course, who was a breath of fresh air.

The Kings and the Pawns : Leonid Rein :

This is honestly a more thought-provoking epic fantasy than a bloody one, and while it does suffer from what most epic fantasies suffer from, a plethora of PoV's that may or may not get lost in the shuffle without a good roster and a glossary, a good handful of characters are sufficiently awesome to pull even an audiobook reader through without the visual aid.

Though, I do kinda wish I had one, regardless. Oh lordy, well, that certainly puts a whole new spin on the rest of the novel, so be prepared. Or not so subtle for us, the reader, while being supremely so for everyone else. My only desire was more descriptions.

Rádios que tocam I Am King

I felt twinges of awe when the empire was described visually, and many other little times, and found myself just praying for more. Also, I'd have loved a more robust handling of the character-drawing to make all the players pop out for me so as to keep things grounded and real in my mind, but these things might be purely personal quips and not a deal-breaker by far.

I'm looking forward to reading more. And thanks goes to the author for the audiobook version to review from!

Kings or Pawns

Sherwood introduces us to the elven Realm of Sevrigel with her debut novel Kings or Pawns , conveying readers to a complex, diverse land where young King Hairem attempts to tame the corrupt political machinations of the capital city while his General Jikun strives to defeat the seemingly invincible forces of Lord Saebellus and his beast.

Their individual quests forcing them to brave tense council room intrigue, dabble with outlawed and soul destroying magic, strive to trust Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths. Their individual quests forcing them to brave tense council room intrigue, dabble with outlawed and soul destroying magic, strive to trust one another, win unwinnable battles, and somehow find a way to hold their kingdom together when it appears to be unraveling before their eyes.

The main theme weaving throughout this narrative is one of trust. Does young, idealistic King Hairem trust those around him? The stuffy, arrogant, and perhaps corrupted council? His blunt, jaded general? The beautiful daughter of a political rival whom he believes he loves? Or should he trust his own intuitions and break with the deeply held traditions of his people, forging a new way for all of them?

As for General Jikun, he must deal with a different form of trust, specifically his mistrust. And, most worrisome, he has no trust in his ability to defeat Lord Saebellus and his beast. The key strength to this narrative is the characters. Instantly, a reader will gain a feeling for who and what King Hairem and General Jikun are. Their differing personalities quickly sketched out; their differences highlighted by a meeting at the beginning of the story.

The course of their individual journeys and their growing relationship organically grown throughout. Above of all else, their motives drive them toward a single goal they can agree upon: the survival and resurrection of the Kingdom of Sevrigel. I have to admit loving the world Sherwood has created here. The amount of worldbuilding is immense. Tiny details involving history, religion, politics, magic, and social customs littered about the narrative. All of it surprisingly rich, Tolkien-esque, if you will, with differing cultures that felt real and with characters who were different, not just said to be different.

And other than a few info dumps in the first few chapters, the worldbuilding was craftily woven into the ongoing action and intrigue, seamlessly devoured without any noticing it was happening.
