The Battle for Metagore is the first book in D.L. Stewart’s Lands of the Abyss series, and it’s a book that has me curious for more. There is so much to learn about this world, many things I wish to see come together, and I’m excited to see how everything will play out throughout the series.

The Battle for Metagore introduces us to an interesting world, one filled with creatures that will appeal to all fantasy fans. It’s more than just your standard cast of creatures, as this one covers a much la

This is a fantastic adult fantasy novel. It is extremely hard to believe it is a debut novel for this talented new author. The realm of Metagore is vividly described from the flora and fauna to the "human" inhabitants. You feel like you are there with the attention to detail provided in this epic story.

If you enjoy a well-written book with plenty of twists and turns, a huge cast of well-defined characters, plenty of "realistic" fantasy elements, and a plot that will keep you turning the pages as

While this was a pretty average fantasy read for me, that's not to say it's not worth the read. I enjoyed it and definitely recommend picking it up and giving it a chance, especially if you enjoy shorter reads!

Overall, I enjoyed the story and the characters, but there were so many people thrown at me so quickly that I was very confused on who was who. It wasn't until pretty much the end of the book that I began to keep everyone straight. The reason I think I had such a hard time with this can be

It has been sometime since I've read a fantasy epic tale, and the author delivered a great layered story to be sure. I must say there's a good amount of characters in this novel but I rather like that aspect. One thing that surprised me was the multitude of races in this tale; it has it all! The author delivers great fantasy writing, that was refreshing yet classical. It's a long read but that's what you expect of a fantasy novel in most cases.

The Cover: I love the art style of the cover, and it

Action, adventure and heartbreak combine, in this brutal new fantasy. Metagore is filled with a colorful cast of characters. Within this story you’ll find demons, elves, dwarves and many other fantastic beings living throughout.

A fight for the kingdom of BrightHelm leads to chaos in the realms. You’re brought over land and sea to experience this epic battle. The villains are deliciously disagreeable. They revel in their villainy even when it’s morally justified. Damn it, Darius is a demon that

I was given a ecopy of this book by the author in exchange for review.

I was really craving a high fantasy with heavy lore and I got that in spades with this book. There were multiple kingdoms and dozens of different species around. I expected to struggle with the world building at the beginning, as that's standard for high fantasy. And in theory, each of the kingdoms had a general idea. But with so many kingdoms and so many rulers, trying to remember who came from where was a constant issue thr

I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. It has been awhile since I have read adult epic fancy, but I have to say this book surprised me. The details and the descriptions made me believe I was right there with the multitude of characters and races. It was wonderful foundation for this series. It is an epic battle of a crown and an adventure that will keep you reading to the last page and still wanting more. I know it is only the first book in a series, but I am excited for th ...more
