Servant by John D Brown (good read!)

I normally plug books that I read via my Goodreads account, but I thought this one was special and wanted to give it a little more exposure. I recently stumbled on John D Brown’s book Servant and was impressed with the story, the magic system, and especially the tension. Even better, it was clean and had a strong Virtus theme.

Servant (The Dark God Book 1)

If you like the writing of Brandon Sanderson (like Elantris) or David Farland’s Runelords works, I think you might like this as well. It was not a D&D adventure and had very strong and realistic characters. There was a great blend of humor with the tension, which kept increasing as the story progressed. It kept me up a few nights reading late.

No disclosures – I don’t know the author, I bought the book (wasn’t given a freebie copy), and no one asked me to write this. I believe the next in the series is coming soon and I’m looking forward to reading it.

    I trust your judgement, I’ll look up a copy and give it a try. Getting tired of stuff too “racy” or violent or amoral or immoral to read. Thanks for the heads up.
