Does "epic fantasy" mean "lots of characters involved in lots of conflicts that occur in lots of locales"? If so, that's what the reader can expect when jumping into Kenneth McDonald's Paths of the Chosen.

Paths of the Chosen begins with Izandra, the main character, being chased by kobolas, an enemy race. She is able to escape and reports her adventure to her fellow townspeople. Then she talks to a few other characters and then looks for Ethander, an old mentor who has been helping her develop he

More of a 3.5 star book than a 4, but I didn't want to go as low as 3 stars.

I found this to be an interesting tale. While the names (people, creatures) were a bit unfamiliar, and so gave me pause from time to time, I still highly enjoyed the intensity and complexity of the web of conflicts that pulled so many people in (though I did feel lost at times).

I think this is a great selection for those that enjoy fantasy and am incredibly intrigued to see how the bigger story plays out.

The council of the nine gods have to deal with their evil brother's activities in the mortal world. They can't be directly involved, nor can they directly interfere in mortal activities, so they use an avatar to give instructions to certain persons. Quite imaginative, well developed story and characters. Needs a little editing, but all in all, a pretty good story.

a great find & thankfully bk 2 is already here! this book caught me within the first pages. in places it seemed a little choppy (phrasing etc) but the story was worth it. there are quite a few seemingly random characters to track but i enjoy the unfolding of the larger picture.
