Realmbound: Sword of the Scion

(1 customer review)


“Forge alliances. Gain powers. Save the realm.” 

In the realm of Valion, a war is fought between the vile demons of the under-realm and the mighty scions, mystical beings with the power to wield super-human abilities. It is a war that turns cities to ash, that leaves the very land itself ravaged and uninhabitable….

The scions fought valiantly, but even with their powers they were no match for the demonic horde. With the realm in ruin and no one to oppose them, Valion’s dark forces set their sights on a new world…Earth. 

Now, fierce dragons rule the skies of North America. Savage hordes burn and pillage the world’s great cities. Civilization sits on the brink of total collapse. People have been forced to end their lives of convenience and pick up swords in a bid for survival. Rian Asher, a young man chosen by fate, must form an unlikely alliance of heroes from both his world and theirs to fight against the growing darkness in a battle that will decide that fate of the realms. 

The scions must rise again….

    I feel a little misled. Not in a bad, Donald Trump-y way but by the dark, foreboding synopsis blurb on this book.
    All this talk of dragons ruling the skies of a post-apocalyptic world where mankind fights for it’s very survival and I expected some kind of dark tale of death, misery and hopelessness like Reign of Fire.
    Instead I got a very light tale with enemies who acted like bad-guys from 80s kids cartoons and fight scenes lacking any real sense of grit.
    This isn’t to say it’s a bad book, far from it. The characters are interesting and there’s a good amount of growth for all of them pretty much right off the bat. Also the world itself is well put together but I did feel that more emphasis needed to be put on the dereliction of our own world as I did, at times, almost feel this was a High Fantasy setting.
    Narration-wise the characters were all voiced extremely well and Rian’s character carried a great sense of pressure throughout the book. A very worthy attempt was also made for female characters and the evil characters voiced with sufficient venom as to make them feel more dangerous than maybe the writing itself portrayed.
    In all I did enjoy the book a lot. I’ve moved straight onto the sequel to see how these characters proceed as this has left genuinely interested but I do hope there’s more maturity in the next one.
