Seeds of War (the Smokesmiths #1) by João F. Silva - A Review


"He ran like the monster he was. And the smoke followed."
Seeds of War by João F. Silva

Seeds of War is a self-published epic fantasy book and the first in The Smokesmiths series. I came across this book through @fantasy_fellowship and it sounded very intriguing that I started reading it.

The Smokesmiths is a gritty epic fantasy series with a harsh world of smoke magic, alien creatures and ancient secrets where characters do their best to come out on top. Peace will not last.

I really liked reading Seeds of War. It has great world - building, a very unique magic system and well - written characters with strong development.  The book is about complex characters with troubled pasts, who navigate a dangerous world while striving to protect those they care about.

I am really excited to read book 2 and learn more about the world and our characters.

Rating: 4 Stars

About the book:

GIMLORE is a single mother and war veteran turned crime boss set on protecting her family and her town.

ORBERESIS is a petty thief pretending to be God to protect a terrible secret.

REDNOW is the world's most feared mercenary, but his best days are behind him and there's one job left to do.

In a world of dangerous monsters and devastating smoke magic, the seeds of war are being planted. Allies must be treasured and enemies defeated.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
