During a ceasefire of a war that has taken more lives than could be considered just, there are shadows of betrayal and deceit lurking in the rays of the morning sun. Something is lingering on the horizon, and it’s hell-bent on destruction, despair and death.
Whatever it may be, it’s driven the Goddess to some very desperate measures.
Life for the Harmon siblings has been hard enough, but now they face responsibilities that they never asked for. They never asked for power. They never asked for a world of monsters. They never asked to come face-to-face with demons, the corrupted of their own people, or their own mortality.
But that is just what they will have to do. They are the chosen heroes of Cornelia, the final hope for order and sanity, the last line of defence against the darkness.
They are the Buan.
Hello all and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Buan: The Perfect Mortals! I’d like to thank Mythos Press as well as the author Reece Bridger, for the opportunity to read and review this book in exchange for an honest review.
Buan is an epic fantasy series about four siblings with a great destiny. Each a key component of a hero. I love the idea of siblings who each possess a vital quality essential to a hero so that they must work together to fulfill their shared destiny.
I gave this book a full five star rating. Needless to say, I loved this book. The story itself was wonderfully written with a highly detailed world and developed characters. I loved the strong women of this novel and I think my favorite is the little sister Fantasia whom reminds me a bit of Arya from Game of Thrones. Elrena was also one of my favorites!
I had a lot of fun reading this book, it’s definitely one of my most favorite reads of 2014. I think it deserves a spot among great epic fantasy reads. I can’t wait to continue the series! I loved everything about it. The author is a great storyteller and the blend of action, danger, and fantasy was just right. Definitely recommend as a must read to fantasy fans, I think this is a valuable author to watch and series to get into!
