Would you rather be the conquered or the conqueror?
In a world where gods pull the strings of mortals and people wield the power of the elements, the nation of Libera is attacked by its age-old enemy, the Kem, who lay waste to the land and its armies with their demonic powers of fire and steel.
Imharak, a blacksmith's apprentice, is forced to leave his home town when it is raided and burned to the ground.
Together with his master, Gaius, he flees into the wilderness, heading for Gaius' brother, who is caught near a city that has just been conquered by the Kem.
What troubles Imharak is not so much the invasion, but the fact that he shares the same powers as the invaders, leading him to question where he came from.
He never knew his parents - he was raised as a Liberite and destined to be a common blacksmith.
His powers had always made him an outcast, and now he starts to think he might have more in common with the conquerors than with the conquered.
An origin myth of gods and heroes will crumble and give way to a history of tyrants, slaves and genocide.
Soon, Imharak will find his allegiances torn between both sides. As he and Gaius journey closer to the lion's den, Imharak will discover who he really is and what he is capable of.

There aren’t many stories that I recommend for film but this is absolutely one of them. If given the chance, I think it would rock the world on the scale of the “Game of Thrones” series. Yes, it really is that good.
The BEST fiction book I've read all year...Intricate storytelling, rich character development, packed with edge of your seat mystery, and an unfolding world of imagery that is masterfully written.
If you're into fantasy fused with mythology and history, written as fast paced action this is the book for you. He tends to write in a cinematic way, as if the book reads like a movie in your head.
I could not put this down! The author has managed to create such an amazing world within this book. Every chapter drew me in deeper and I just wanted to know more and more. Possibly one of the best fiction books I've read in a long time. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series
This is my second Jack Geurts novel. And, if possible? It far surpasses the last I read. Incredibly engrossing..It holds your attention, courtesy of Jack's descriptive, spell like writing style.
Book #2 in the Pantheon series.
