Review: sword and flame

Unique fantasy world, impactful characters and expressive writing

A unique fantasy realm, a fight against the dark forces, complex characters and a gripping writing style sums up the book - Sword and Flame: the Afterthought of a Dream by GC Nightwalker. The book starts with hauntingly beautiful prose and then continues with the story of the Immortal Swordsman, the actual narrator of the book. Although the storyline unfolds from multiple perspectives, it's the Swordsman, who steals the spotlight.

The world-building by the author is phenomenal, as he includes dark angels, 'glitched' people, magic and more. The brother-sister duo represents the strength and love of siblings. The fierce protection and unwavering sacrifice make the storyline wholesome. The bright and flashy theme of the book, with multiple planets, weaves a vivid picture in the minds of the reader. The element of Greek mythology adds nuance and depth to the characters and the storyline. The narrative is action-packed, infused with humor and unusual enough to keep you hanging at each word.

Since the book is less than 100 pages, it is easier to finish. Yet, it also felt like the storyline rushed in some places, and lacked a proper description of the world-building.

Overall, the book is a perfect addition to your book-shelf for those looking for a mix of mystery, fantasy and entertainment.
