    1. I just finished this trilogy and I don't know if I've read it differently or not in the same way but I've noticed allot of unfavorable reviews of this. Did they read the same book I've heard of spellbinding stories but this is the first i can say I've read. The world building is superb but the way the interaction between Gods and truly terrifying beings who are beyond mortal comprehension is written in such a way that it actually feels on the brink of the Metaphysical. It gave me a sence of how [...]


    2. Accused of practising pagan magicks, a young boy flees for his life…In fear for her life, a woman suffering from a mysterious illness is forced to break out of the mine where she has been enslaved…An innocent warrior is exiled by the holy man of this mountain tribe and told to make his own way in the world… In the Empire of the Saviours, The People are forced to live in fortified towns. Their walls are guarded by an army of Heroes, whose task is to keep marauding pagans out as much as it i [...]


    3. People say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when you see a cover like Empire of the Saviours, it’s hard not to imagine a great dark and gripping fantasy novel. Sometimes letting your initial judgement of a book be determined by the cover is not a good idea because the book may not meet your expectations, but I was glad to see this wasn’t case with Empire of the Saviours.When I first picked up Empire of the Saviours, I found it a bit difficult to get into due to the start of it [...]


    4. w i don't read a hell of a lot of fantasy since the sad passing of David Gemmell, the genre seemed to lose its guiding light. There are some notable exceptions in people like James Barclay, Paul Hoffman, Ben Aaronovitch and Sam Sykes to name a few. I especially avoid the cliched Fantasy Novels, so when i saw this book i was tornThe cover was both Cliched yet the cover art was so similar to Sam Sykes novel that i just had to give it a go (Sam's books are fantastic fun).I was so glad i gave it a g [...]


    5. A filthy, naked madman !!!!!!!!!!!! This ought to be enough reason to check this book out but if it isn't and you are a more demanding reader how about this? AJ Dalton has crafted a world rich and absorbing and with a full set of characters (including the naked madman) who are a joy to be with.The plot line is one of a young man who through no fault of his own has to find his own way in the world as his circumstances change somewhat the day he unleashes his unknown but potent wrath upon the vill [...]


    6. A.J Dalton was (I believe) the first author to officially coin the term metaphysical fantasy - where things such as free will and destiny are swayed by external influences such as gods. Where nature nurtures and we consider more than the first level of thinking. Jordan did it with Tel'aran'rhiod (dream world) and to a certain degree so did Donaldson with the Thomas Covenant books. What A J has done is make the term interesting and fun - focussing away from the tried and tested 'dream world' scen [...]


    7. The first thing that made me want to read this book in the first place was the genre of the book. I had never heard of Metaphysical Fantasy before and as a fairly new reader I was willing to give the book a go. Just after a few pages I was hooked as each character brought something into the book and you could a real sense of the personality of each character. The only criticism that I can make is that it seems everything happens a bit too fast and we dont get a real origin story from the charact [...]


    8. I will admit I only got as far as page 92 before abandoning the book as I realised I didn't care what happened. The plot just seemed so unbelievable. The female character, Freda, is born in a cave in darkness and her mother dies pretty soon afterwards. Despite this she survives and when she meets other humans later is able to quickly learn their language and behaves in a moral way. The hero meanwhile fleeing from his town where he faces certain death and with no money walks into an inn because h [...]


    9. Fantasy?? Why I just had to read it when I got myself a copy! I even met the author A.J.Dalton when I bought it! Had a lovely chat with him so I just had to see what it was about when he said to me "If you like Harry Potter and A Song of Ice and Fire, you like it."I got half way into the book enjoying it (as you do with a new book) and on each chapter he changes to a completely different character each time! Just couldn't get my head around the characters and story. Had to give up and abandon it [...]


    10. I bought A J Dalton's Flesh and Bone trilogy and loved it, so I didn't hesitate to try Empire of the Saviours. He didn't let me down. A complex world with complex characters. Again, he's created a huge world to get lost in and a deep story. I've persuaded several friends to buy this book and they loved it too. And just like Flesh and Bone, I can so see this as a film.


    11. Really had no idea what this was about. Got lost at about page 170. I had no idea who were the characters were or if they were good or evil. The Story is so disjointed and made no sense to me at all. Gave up!


    12. Just read the advanced copy. Brilliant, A must read book.Characters and locations well defined, just the right amount ofhumour, A book I had to finish, could not put it down.Can't wait for the next book in the series. Will be at the book releasein May.


    13. There are certainly some interesting concepts in this novel but alot of this is standard fantasy. The story centres around a young protagonist who has recently discovered magical capabilities, he becomes hunted by the empire of religious zealots who want to drain him of his power and use it to further there own ambitions. There are gods, saviours and saints who protect the people with soldiers called the hero's. Anyone who doesn't live in a city under religious protection is deemed a pagan and a [...]


    14. While I admire new fantasy authors and those willing to try something different, this one didn't work for me. The world built here is one where aliens are in control of the population through "saints" that draw energy from them as they reach puberty and then control them by way of worship/religion. The idea was good, but I didn't really engage with the concept as delivered or the individuals involved. The religious aspect was too heavy handed for me and it was hard to believe the way the populat [...]


    15. An enjoyable fantasy for the younger end of the market, not without missteps but exuberant and with a few great images and ideas. It's classical secondary world stuff and a bit too coming-of-age for this old man, with parts where characters make odd leaps in their thinking/arguments or recover their wits/humour in record time that add to the impression it's written for a more teenage demographic. Still, it held together well and balanced a variety of competing interests in an impressive way. The [...]


    16. An interesting concept, but it didn't come together that well. It started off well, but as we got further in I felt it became a bit rushed and all over the place, characters not being that well defined, and just some general inconsistencies.


    17. Was a little too long got boring in places. hard to keep up with all the characters in the beginning and some points at end. don't feel like this needs to be a trilogy. was ok


    18. This is worth reading. But I didn't feel like I was captured by the storyline. The characters seem a bit superficial and because of that you don't care as much.


    19. Oh look, the main character is a whiny bitch who cringes every time he has to fight or use his power. Haven't seen that much



    20. Well, this book took me forever to read. Overall I enjoyed the book, but the different POV and how they came together was poorly done.I would be hesitant to suggest this book to anyone. The world seems interesting, but there is very little coherent explanation. So I will do it for you, there is a world with an Empire of Saints and Saviours, who have a military called heroes. The Saints drink peoples blood taking their natural magic from them. Apparently the Saviours come from outerspace. But the [...]
