Often when one reads an epic history within a story, it feels like filler. It feels like lazy writing. This is not the case with the Vatheran. Life, death, blood, war, and love between characters and cultures are expressed and not simply explained. As you go through you will see recurring words, such as blood and mouth, these come through as poetic. You feel the pacing ebb and flow in these words as they pull you deeper into the narrative. This is a tale of war, it is dark and complex, but the natures of the characters are highly developed and though there are many characters who are named and given a moment, there are key players in the world and they draw your attention towards them.
Well written and interesting, there are over a million words in this epic and each is worth reading.
