***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
The complete epic fantasy trilogy set in the world of Iraldas, where gods and mortals mingle, collected together for the first time on Kindle.
1. The Call of Agon: THE LAST LINE. THE LAST WORDS. THE LAST CHANCE.
Ifferon is one of the last in the bloodline of the dead god Telm, who mated with mortal women, and who imprisoned the Beast Agon in the Underworld. Armed with a connection to the estranged gods in the Overworld and a scroll bearing Telm’s powerful dying words, he is tasked with ensuring the god’s vital legacy: that Agon remain vanquished. Fear forces Ifferon to abandon his duty, but terror restores his quest when the forces of Agon find his hideaway in an isolated coastal monastery.
Weighed down by the worries of the world, but lifted up by the companions he encounters along the way, Ifferon embarks on a journey that encompasses the struggles of many peoples, the siege of many lands, and discoveries that could bring hope to some—or doom to all.
2. The Road to Rebirth: THE DYING BREATH. THE DYING WILL. THE DYING HOPE.
After the catastrophe of the Call of Agon, Ifferon and his companions find themselves in the unenviable situation of witnessing, and partaking in, the death of another god—this time Corrias, the ruler of the Overworld.
With Corrias locked inside the corpse of the boy Théos, he suffers a fate worse than the bonds of the Beast Agon. Yet hope is kindled when the company find a way to restore the boy, and possibly the god, back to life.
The road to rebirth has many pitfalls, and there are some who consider such meddling with the afterlife a grave risk. The prize might be life anew—but the price might also be a second death.
3. The Chains of War: THE FINAL HOUR. THE FINAL FIGHT. THE FINAL WAR.
The first of Agon’s chains has broken, and the others are straining. It is only a matter of time before he is free, before the world is engulfed in chaos and death.
There are few left to stop him. Most of the gods can only sit and watch in horror from their prison in the heavens, but the resurrection of the father god Corrias gives the people of Iraldas a sliver of hope, a fighting chance.
Yet the memory of Corrias’ failure to defeat Agon in ages past plays heavily on all minds. Many know that it is only the might of the Warrior-god Telm that can defeat the Beast. That god is dead, but his power lives on in his bloodline, in Ifferon and others like him, and they are tasked with waging a final war against the Beast.
Enter the world of Iraldas. Join the Children of Telm.
The Children of Telm is a boxed set trilogy.
While using the tried and true formula in writing an epic fantasy, Wilson’s unique world combined with his intelligent writing sets The Children of Telm a step above ordinary fantasy. I felt immersed in the story and the troubles of the characters. The richness of the world drew me in and captivated my imagination. The morality of the characters and the trying situations they endure are not overly exaggerated but often subtle, where a small choice may not seem like much in the bigger picture but staying true to their beliefs are tested, strained, and lead to much self-doubt. Each book in this series has its own challenges as a part of the bigger quest. There is action, storytelling, and much more to love about this series.
