I’m gushing over this book and seriously daunted by the challenge of communicating how exceptional it is As an avid fantasy reader especially series written by the genre's greats I can honestly say they have nothing on Peyton Reynolds It’s a mystery to me how The Auguries of Dawn isn’t plastered across fantasy best seller lists This book is exuisitely written smooth as silk in language and pacing The words flow flawlessly without a sentence too many or few This attention to craft applies to all other aspects of the novel as well The main characters that share the protagonist role are wonderfully defined consistent in dialog and action multi dimensional and emotionally complex Many have a fascinating element of mystery as part of the “magic system” threaded through the story The book isn’t without its ruthless killers but most of the main characters are honorable souls that a reader gladly roots for It’s the well worked plot the persistent looming danger and mystery surrounding future events that creates the ever mounting nail biting tensionWhich brings me to the author’s sublime weaving together of the plot and magic system The only series I can compare this to is Sanderson’s Mistborn Trilogy where the ingestion of metals and the powers they instill are inseparable from the action Reynolds takes this a step farther building a detailed world where every character’s life is influenced by one of fifteen Birth Patrons and an individually selected Choice Patron The Patrons somewhat like gods rule different dominions Art Death Chaos War Healing Magic etc imbuing the characters with uniue desires abilities and destinies What makes this utterly fascinating is the way each person’s combination of Patrons informs their lives For example Magic paired with Healing would have a different influence on a person from Magic paired with Chaos On top of that the world has a fifteen day week with each day ruled by a Patron whose influence works on a larger scale The intricate descriptions of Reynolds’s world are superb and her writing conveys this complexity without an inkling of confusion When Reynolds adds all this to a tight and exciting plot with plenty of fast paced action danger and intrigue she hands the reader an incredibly rich and mesmerizing read The Auguries of Dawn is a long book that I simply could not put down for a minute I’m exhausted from several nights of reading into the wee hours with my eyes pried open with toothpicks The adventure concludes with a number of loose ends that I have no choice but to pursue to the end—I can’t wait to start the next book in the series 6 stars
