 From Wrath to Ruin

In exile from his homeland... 

As a mercenary, Tijodrin has wandered far and wide, and now his travels have brought him to the great city of Hohvenlor, a city he knows well. He quickly finds himself caught up in a fierce rivalry that threatens to destroy two powerful merchant families and turn the streets of Hohvenlor into a battlefield. 
Within the city walls, Tijodrin will find danger in many forms. Can he survive 
the endless plots of the vengeful merchants and the swords of their bloodthirsty henchmen, as well as the lurking daggers of the shadowy assassin's guild?

Growing up in a military family, Justin Enos was lucky enough to get to see a lot of the world as a child. Born in Thailand, he subsequently lived in Kentucky, Maryland, Vermont, California, Germany and Virginia. He hasn’t stopped moving around as an adult either, calling Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Thailand again, and now Portland, Oregon home.

Justin began devouring books at a young age and his interest in writing followed soon after. Never much of a student, he could at least count on his creative writing abilities to gain him some top marks. Fantasy novels were his main love as a teenager and that led to what has now become a long-term interest in fantasy writing. After publishing a couple of short stories in fantasy magazines that no one has ever heard of, he buckled down and began working on his first novel. 
“From Wrath To Ruin” is the first in what will eventually be an ongoing series of books. Inspired in part by the Conan novels written by both Robert E. Howard and Robert Jordan, each of Justin’s books will be stand-alone stories.

*4 1/2 Roses*

Action, adventure, fantasy, and dystopian mashup fun.

I basically love everything about this book. From the characters who pull you in, to the intense setting of a dystopian future yet fantasy elements of swords and ships, what more could an action-loving girl like myself need? With fast-paced action and danger-filled adventure, the story races along a path without being certain it would end well. The ending overall was satisfying, yet I would definitely read more of these characters.

My only complaint and reason for removing half a star, is the formatting was a bit off, as well as some grammar mistakes, which ended up being enough to be slightly annoying, especially when I was caught up in such an enjoyable story. These issues aren't major, and not even worth removing a full rose, and only mentioned because I'm providing an honest and thorough review.

Overall, this is a fantastic adventure, and I highly recommend it. If you're a fan of this style mashup, be sure to check it out. I am very thankful to the author for the opportunity to read and review, and find a great new story.

*I was given a complimentary eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.
