The Adults hide a great secret: on the mountains lives an evil Dragon, guardian of an ancient power, and it is said that he only eats children. In the darkness of the night, moved by the lust for this power, the Demons invade the i

This is set in Ancient Rome, in the time of Emperor Constantine, and was written in the mythology story style that draws me to books like Songs of Achilles, etc. which I really liked. Just enough historical elements, but also fantasy with demons and dragons.

The writing wasn't particularly flowery, but more straight forward and to the point. The characters were interesting, there was plenty of battles and action to keep the story moving at a good pace.

Overall I enjoyed this. If you are look

___________________________________________

'The Demon Tamer' by Christian Brancati is a fantasy genre novel that adds a creative twist to the ancient history. The story is laden with a staggering amount of supernatural elements ; demons, gods, dragons, gateways to hell and people born of fruits, that it's actually quite a feat by the author to pull this novel together.

Christian Brancati è l’autore di questo romanzo che ho letto in pochi giorni. È un genere fantasy con particolari storici e studiati. Tanti termini tecnici e precisi, muniti di spiegazioni dettagliate che giungeranno da vari protagonisti che Damian, il figlio del drago, incontrerà sul suo cammino.
Questo libro infatti racconta la storia veramente esistita, mischiata ad un mondo immaginario, fatto di demoni, draghi e figure mitologiche.
I luoghi,spiegati minuziosamente, sono: il villagg

This high fantasy novel takes place in a version of Ancient Rome and follows Damian and his adventures as he battles demons, travels the world, and goes on a journey of self-discovery. This story is full of mythology, history, creatures, magic, and more.

The world-building in this story is full of detail. My only issue is that this world is a little too complicated for me because it combines Catholicism, Greek Mythology, Roman Mythology, and Egyptian Gods all into one colossal religion. There ar

I received a copy from the author for an honest review. Thank you Brancati for the great book!!

There is a lot of different cultures that get a spotlight in this story, and I think that has to be one of my favorite parts. I love being able to learn about other cultures, and Brancati clearly did his research. It added a special part to the story that allows the reader to feel as though they are experiencing it and are there, too.

Although I was confused at first, it didn't t

I was sent a copy of the book by the author for a review. The Demon Tamer follows the adventures of Damian, a unique blend of gods and humans and dragons (kind of??) as he tries to figure out who he is and what his purpose is. If you love all kinds of mythology then this really is the book for you because just like the main character, there's a little bit of everything here. It starts in Ancient Rome but it's like all over the place in terms of the historical content and journeys.

I appreciated how historijourneys.
