The Soul of the World Book Review and Giveaway


by Joshua Silverman

The ancient powers lost to Potara have returned. The Brotherhood of the Black Rose rises to bring Thoth into disorder. And, while the Brotherhood reclaims their power, chaos reigns among the survivors. Six individuals have emerged from the aftermath struggling for control over their lives and a divided land. Kem and Shirin, who abolished the five thousand year reign of the Amun Priests, rule from the golden throne of the Oracle’s Chair in the Hall of the Nine. Dio and Axios struggle to piece together a resistance worthy to challenge the ancient magic which resides in the Great Temple of Amun, and Leoros and Atlantia try to remain true to their hearts and their cause despite tragedy. But when the Book of Breathings is discovered, the path to immortality is revealed. Leoros and Kem race to capture the Soul of the World unaware of the challenges awaiting them. This time, the gods themselves will intervene. In a tale where boys become men and girls become women, where treachery and deception are around every corner, and where primeval mysticism finds its way back from the grave, victory is reserved for neither the good nor the evil, but the powerful.

My Review:

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  This is book 2 in the Legends of Amun Ra series.  It’s been two years since Leoros left Potara.  He’s now stuck on Earth; an orphan who everyone thinks is insane.  He’s desperate to return to Potara, he has no idea how to return, what he needs is in Egypt and he’s in Manhattan with no money and no one he can trust.

Unbeknownst to Leoros, Kem survived the battle with him.  He has joined forces with Shirin on his quest for power and immortality; he has even publicly declared Atlantia and Dio rebels. Atlantia never gives up hope that her love, Leoros, will return one day and prepares for it.  She is on a quest to find a man called Luekos.  Dio has completely given up, feels that Leoros has abandoned them and will never return.  Then there is the Brotherhood of the Black Rose, who’s side are they really on?  Will Leoros return to Potara to save his friends?  Will Atlantia grow as an Oracle?  Will she even be able to find the reclusive man Luekos?  Will Kem learn who he can trust before it’s too late?

This novel takes you on a fantastic adventure, a whole other world filled with mythological creatures, and people with remarkable powers.  I loved how descriptive the story was, I could picture every moment in my mind’s eye.  I was sweating with Leoros as he trained and freezing with Atlantia as she rode her Sphinx through the forest looking for Luekos’ hut.  The Soul of The World is an awesome novel, with believable characters, many you will love and a few you will love to hate.  This is one series you’ll want to read over and over!
