    While the previous books in the series didn't suffer from lack of action this one somehow seemed the most intense It's like all the things touched upon in books 1 5 those snippets and teasers of backstory and world building began to take shape and fall into one big puzzle while the plot gained urgency with every chapter Once we see Kari on an epic and dangerous uest both she and the supporting characters revealing about themselves in this new exciting world We see new friendships being forged and old characters brought into the action to tell their own stories True to herself and her mission Kari shines as a leader here a protector of people no matter on which world and no matter of which race a hope for peace between the worlds As usual there were a lot of emotional moments and friendly banter is always my favorite but I also liked Kari's disguise and the whole process of infiltrating a foreign territory I think Kari managed it all amazingly Some of the other characters that I really enjoyed reading about were Seanada and King Morduri there's a lot of character development going on in this book and these two were the most interestingLet's see if book 7 can top this one 😉

    The Gauntlet Is ThrownPreludes to War is the sixth installment in the Eve of Redemption series by Joe Jackson In it the prime protagonist demonhunter and all star hero Karian Vanador finally takes a course toward open conflict as the title suggests and brings it to the home turf of her people's enemies the demon kings of Mehr'Durillia This represents a milestone for the series as a whole as the overall plot sharply increases its urgency and suspension throwing away subtlety to substitute it for direct action From here on now I expect the series will make the stakes even higher than they are currently and will begin revealing some of its larger mysteries as their importance rises to the front of the storyDespite that fundamental shift in the meta plot's condition Preludes isn't radically different than the previous entries at least any than it is normal for its author and as such the regular sections in this review are going to end up on the short side Rest assured though as this is another excellent installment one that fully deserves its five star ratingNow that the introduction is over we'll go over theSTORYThe plot of Preludes to War is one about a military rebellion or less It's about Kari going to the world of Mehr'Durillia to settle her debt to King Morduri who wants her to perform a singular task which uickly develops into organizing a full scale uprising It has below its surface of course since the series has already gathered a considerable momentum in both worldbuilding and meta plot; but if we examine the story out of context it is simply the fantasy counterpart of Che Guevara's revolution an uprising led at the front by a seemingly single charismatic individual In Preludes's case this individual is Kari and the way she handles it showcases her natural leadership and I do mean leadership the ability to lead by example and to never put duties to others that one is unwilling to do themself This has always been one of Kari's most defining traits and here it shines through whenever she uses it to inspire others be they commoners fellow comrades or even demon kingsBut the important part here is how the story is presented not how original it is There are plenty of funny and heartwarming moments and there also the important plot development of Kari being shapeshifted for the majority of the novel Suffice to say everything is top notchOnto theCHARACTERSAgain Kari here is the front and center protagonist However since the focus again is on the world of Mehr'Durillia most of the supporting cast are native people from that place Some of them like Seanada the silent and taciturn half syrinthianhalf succubus or King Morduri the open minded and informal demon king make a repeat appearance while others like King Emanitar and the mallasti vulkinastra Mastriana are new to audience The Wraith the enigmatic leader of the Ashen Fangs who we first saw in the second book also appears in the story playing a much larger role and conseuently receives a solid character development in the sense of being clearly definedDespite the change in the cast there are plenty of fight scenes This makes character development tricky overall but the author has tested his mettle in the series' earlier installments and his learned experience starts to show as both character growth and action scenes are handled expertly without either one suffering from neglect This brings the uality of the narrative even higher and definitely rewards readers who had persisted in following the seriesLastly theTECHNICAL PRESENTATIONWriting on par Tempo excellent Factology consistent Results? All clearCONCLUSIONAs I said in my previous review I won't harp continuously on how great this fantasy series is; either you're a fan by now or you aren't and the chances of reading this in the latter case are fairly minimalPreludes to War has the Seal of Approval the Autograph of Awesome and the Table of Power 'Nuff said

    The sixth entry of author Joe Jackson’s Eve of Redemption series opens with protagonist Karian Vanador watching her children play having recently lost her husband Grakin to Dracon’s Bane although the recent birth of her nieces has somewhat soothed the pain of loss along with the friendship of a Warlord named Kris Kari fears war with Mehr’Durillia and agrees to meet King Morduri Irrasitus by his reuest of debt to him being due The main antagonist of the series and an Overlord Sekassus is on the hunt for Kari who battles several of his sons throughout the narrativeKari soon joins her companion Seanada and another named the Wraith whose past he reveals later on in Mehr’Durillia agreeing to save threatened vulkinastra Kari eventually undergoing the process of being turned into a mallasti to conceal her identity As she crusades against demon princes Kari occasionally attempts to rally townsfolk to her cause with mixed results and receives the occasional peace deal from demon monarchs Several fights erupt with netherwordly princes Seanada by her side and eventually returns to her homeworld with the story ending on a somewhat bittersweet noteOverall this is another enjoyable story in the series with plenty of well described action that kept this reader engaged occasional romance given Kari’s late husband’s wish not to mourn him forever and some political intrigue Given the many races in the series however one can somewhat find it difficult to keep track of their defining features although the appendices after the main text somewhat alleviate this issue In spite of its shortcomings this reviewer has definitely been enjoying this dragon fantasy series and very much looks forward to reading the next entry

    Karian Vanador owes a favor to the demon king Morduri She's not very happy about that and even less so when he calls it in immediately after she's become the new Avatar of Vengeance But Morduri was right to say he'd only ask for something she'd be willing to give and her assignment now offers her a chance to strike a tangible blow against Sekassus the demon king she hates the mostWith Grakin gone Kari's working her way through her feelings again She doesn't want to stay stuck in grief but she doesn't know if she's ready for a new relationship I'm curious to see of Kris as the little bit we do see show he's a very different person than Grakin was and one perhaps better matched to Kari's hunter lifestyle Especially if she does end up with a war against the demon kings which given the ending looks entirely possible to be far sooner than she thoughtKari's actual fulfillment of her bargain is one of my favorite parts of the whole series Not just the act itself but everything that built up to it the disguise she uses to infiltrate Sekassus's territory the way she interacts with the locals and all of the little bonuses she scored for Morduri She's planning for the long term And it's her compassion as well as her martial skills that draw so many others to follow her leadAlso Kari is learning bad words in other languages and putting them to excellent use evil grinI like how she's forging relationships between the worlds Person by person both the powerful and the ordinary she's fighting for people who often don't know how to fight for themselves She's stirring them to want freedom This is most personal with Seanada who has grown to be a friend and who Kari wants to find happiness in places where Seanada is too cautious to tryFavorite uotesSeanada smiled at her mother and the two chuckled  “Not every problem can be solved with a knife but I try that first anyway” the assassin saidAlsoThe demonhunter shrugged  “Well you know what they say if at first you don’t succeed”  Seanada’s expression remained blank  “Try try again”“Corpses rarely put in a second effort” the half syrinthian countered but then she let out one of those rare but heartwarming laughsAll in all given what this book did and where it left off I absolutely can't wait for the next installment These are funny exciting and full of so much heart I rate this book Highly RecommendedSee my reviews and at
