The Great Nations of Rendaraia by Jayel Draco was such an awesome book to read. I read it in two sittings and enjoyed every minute of reading it.

Lastly, I loved how he described each nation ...more

Gorgeous illustrations and an intricately conceived, expert world-building, a somber feeling of loss, and a scholar's love of detail give "The Great Nations of Rendaraia" a uniqueness that can't be quantified. The illustrations are lush, the language intricate, the cast diverse, the story engrossing. This book is part fantasy, part anthropology, part cultural history, part mythology, part art book, and much more. For fantasy fans who love to dig deep into the worlds they love, fans of architectu ...more

This book is amazing, at first and at the end it makes you want to dive into these nations to experience the real lore. The amount of time and attention to detail is amazing. This is something that can live on. Well done!

The Great Nations of Rendaraia takes you on a beautiful and emotional journey that will stay with you long after you finish reading it. This book is a stroke of genius, written from the perspective of one of the characters in the world. The sombre tone of the book is made all the more powerful by the sense of urgency that accompanies the fictional writer's desperate desire to preserve his knowledge in the wake of tragedy. It's extremely immersive and makes you feel as if you were right there wit ...more
