Wednesday Book Review by Crazyjedidiah

Imperial Hostage
by Phil Cantrill

Review by Crazyjedidiah

As a hostage Erech, is sent to Poseidia the The Capital of the Empire, to keep his nation in order. On arrival he is taken to the Temple of Bel where he is brutalised due to a prophecy. He is rescued by the High Priest of the Temple of One. Where he is brought up with kindness and respect. He makes friends with the other hostages and some of the “Homelanders”. He also travels around and explores the area around the city with his friends while learning important skills. Erech must also on numerous occasions outsmart attempted assination attempts from the Temple of Bel.

It was quiet an interesting book, a fantasy that reminds me Ancient Greek Mythology and Atlantis. It is the story of growing up and overcoming challenges to become the person you are meant to be. However I didn't entirely agree with everything that was in there.
I would recommend this book to any one who loves Greek mythology and stories about Atlantis. It would also be good for anyone who likes historical fantasy.

Thanks for the review! Crazyjedidiah blogs at Gibberish
