A copy of the book was provided to me by its author in exchange for an honest review.

I am at loss of the words here: I have no idea how to describe what this book is about in one short, or even long, paragraph. This is not standard fantasy affair: there is no orphan destined to save the world, no kingdom trying to conquer another one, no power plays between different people for Iron Throne. This is about humanity's desperate attempts at surviving after a great cataclysm. The last best hope for t

Spawn of Dyscrasia is a darkly-surreal novel that mingles strange adventures with the philosophy of aesthetics for an extremely satisfying read. Lindberg uses exquisite descriptions to depict bizarre congeries of insectoid philosopher-artist-warriors, demons, and golems, all striving for mastery over themselves and the world in which they live. As you can imagine, this is a grim work, but a beautiful work, nonetheless. I found myself quite happily wrapped up in the world of Dyscrasia and it left ...more

Spawn of Dyscrasia is another great instalment in this extremely intriguing series, although it took me far too long to read it.

The so-called Dyscrasia Fiction series is overall one of the most innovative and groundbreaking new fantasy series I have read in recent years, and it keeps providing something different to a seasoned fantasy-reading mind.

With three books now complete, and a lot of interesting plot threads building up, I am very interested to see where it goes next. And I'd recommend ev

Wow. It's hard to believe it's been almost 3 years since I read Lords of Dyscrasia, the first Dyscrasia book from S.E. Lindberg. Stylistically, that was a very interesting read, one with a mix of high fantasy, pulp adventure, and visceral horror. It worked as well as I could have hoped, if not better, and immediately came flooding back to the forefront of my memories when I sat down to Spawn of Dyscrasia.

I didn't think it was possible, but this is an even darker fantasy than the novel that opene

A very good well written novella, the author has the great knack of painting with words when he is describing his world and what is happening to it and the characters with the effects from the various magic systems he has devised in this book.

It ended in a very strange way, but when I found theres more to come it made sense.

its very short but the author really squeeze a lot in, the story is set in such a short space of time maybe a day or 2.

Spawn of Dyscrasia, by S.E. Lindberg, IGNIS Publishing LLC, Dyscrasia Fiction ™ 235 pages. Front cover by Ken Kelly.

Well, I’m impressed. This is an entertaining fantasy novel that—I would argue—rises to the level of art. I judge that in a couple of ways. First, the actual prose here is simply lovely. It has the kind of poetry and descriptiveness to it that I constantly seek for but seldom find. Note: by lovely I don’t mean that it is sweet and bucolic. Quite the reverse. There are plenty of gore

No rating, since I am the author. I use this platform to communicate that the Spawn of Dyscrasia Audiobook (2015) was just released with narration by actress Kathy Bell Denton, whose eerie voice will haunt you!

Spawn of Dyscrasia is the enthusiastic and hugely enjoyable follow-up to Lords of Dyscrasia. You do not need to be a fan of the Sword and Sorcery genre to enjoy this book. The world built is one of a startling clarity and vision. What a world it is! Here we have a more focused vista in contrast to the panoramic scene setting of the first in the series. Where there is beauty, there is the horrific, the sublime, the repulsive. It is as if Hieronymous Bosch has taken a day off and decided to marry ...more

Spawn of Dyscrasia

This book scared the wee-wadded out of me. What a great second novel.

When I read this story it was like I was transported into it. Lindberg is such a strong writer that when you start reading you need to ensure that you will have plenty of time to leave this world and go on a journey. It is so descriptive and vivid that I can't help but slip into Dyscrasia and become part of the story. This story is about a place and time when God's ruled and magic was all around yo

Fresh from re-reading Lord of Dyscrasia, I am impressed with how much Lindberg improved in his storytelling. The book starts off a while after the events of the first book. Endenken and Echo have become the center of a new power which utilizes creative energy. As plot rules go, new power also means new enemies. While SoD primarily focuses on Echo and Helen's adventure, we do get some perspective scenes on Doctor Grave and Endenken.

Spawn of Dyscrasia was a great read. Compared to the first book,

Dark, Fascinating Fantasy

S.E. Lindberg’s “Spawn ofDyscrasia” is the second book to appear in the world of Dyscrasia. I haven’t read “Lords of Dyscrasia,” but after having spent some time with “Spawn,” it’s definitely a work that has made its way to my ‘to-read’ list. Although “Spawn” stands alone, there were some times I wished I was a little more familiar with the world, and I think reading “Lords” first would have helped.

Dyscrasia is a pretty fascinating place, and you have to give this novel

Sequel to Lords of Dyscrasia, Spawn of Dyscrasia carries over all of the strengths of the first book and none of its flaws.

The world portrayed in this novel remains every bit as strange and intriguing. Powered by blood magic, undead sorcerer-king Lord Lysis continues to rule his corner of the world, and his adopted insect hybrid "son" Echo has matured considerably. Spawn of Dyscrasia focuses on what happens when Lysis encounters a threat to his kingdom, and the growing pains—figurative and liter

It took a minute for the book to get going. But, once it did, I kept wanting to know what was happening. It is a unique story with interesting characters. And, it didn't go as I expected so that was intriguing. I look forward to reading the next installment to see what happens with the characters brought forward in this book. And, to see if Lysis truly succeeds in what he wants. I was sad to see one of the characters no longer going forward. Guess I will have to wait for the next one to see if ...more

Know yourself.
Once again, that expression provides the subtle undertone that permeates the life-threads of our protagonists in the decades following the ending of the Ill Age, where Dyscrasia was vanquished.
The Chromlechon now serves as a bastion to a new society of survivors who serve the two grey Lords, Lysis and the foundling, Lord Echo.
Conceived during genetic splicing of eldritch creatures and man at the end of Lords of Dyscrasia, Echo was one of the monstrous litter that ensued, all of wh

I did not understand this book at all. It made no sense to me. I couldn't get into the characters or the story. At certain points my stomach was having a hard time staying put during the fight scenes. It was a difficult book to read. I rarely give up on a book and i almost did on this one. Since it was a book I received on Librarything in return for a review I didn't feel right giving up. Not a book I liked at all.

I received this free from the author cause he is awesome like that.

I liked this book better then be previous one.
Loads of action and some pretty gory stuff as well. I did miss the various illustrations that were in the 1st one. If you liked the 1st book definitely pick this one up.

Two decades of practicing chemistry, combined with a passion for the Sword and Sorcery genre, spurred him to write Lords of Dyscrasia, a graphic adventure fictionalizing the alchemical humors.
