A Dark Fire Forged by Chris Evans

dark fire

“It’s not the heat, it’s stupidity.” -Private Yimt Arkhorn, “A Dark Wrought in the Fire”

Arkhorn’s private statement perfectly reflects the spirit of Chris Evans’s new novel “A Dark Forged in Fire.” The book is essentially the fantasy novel equivalent to talk of time, functional speech, but it is not fun to end. (I apologize if you are one of the few people to find that the weather is very satisfactory. By the way, do you know if it will rain tomorrow.?) Functional stories are less fun; It’s like deja vu with different characters. In his favor, Evans spices up a bit of humor, and demonstrates an ability to entertain entertaining characters, but when you look at the whole story, it’s 400 pages of “wandering through the woods.” This fantastic shot would not be complete without a battle to the end, and Evans did not disappoint, it gives us a big battle with multiple factions in the conclusion. If literature is the story of “the coming century,” while the fantasy genre is clearly the story of “coming battle.”

Although ultimately clichéd, “a Dark Forged in Fire” is at least a well made outfit used in excess. Evans shows creativity with his characters and creations and displays delightful short stories, makes him only think about what he could have done with a better underlying story. The novel also seems to have trouble deciding whether it wants to be a standard classical fantasy or more of a dark fantasy. The more adult aspects, stronger, have chatted, but never completely kissed. “A Dark Forged in Fire” have helped enormously if Evans had written with the same borderless approach Joe Abercrombie uses for his First Law trilogy. The material here involves this type of treatment.

Konowa Swift dragon, an elected, lived as a pilgrim last year in a forest of Elfkyna. Exiled for the murder of former Elkyna viceroy operating under the power of the Scarecrow Elf Monarch, Konowa had previously been the commander of the Iron Elves, an elite unit of the Imperial Calahrian army before his court-martial. The restoration of the scene, the human Calahrian empire dominates the country and his career Elfkyna indigenous, Elfkynan, who begin to rebel against their human oppressors.

Konowa and his partner, Jir, a Bengar, quickly find a group of rakkes in the woods. The Rakkes are creatures of evil thought for a long time, but their reappearance suggests the growing power of the monarch of shadows throughout the world. Surpassing rakkes, Konowa Jir and discovered a woman who had been captured by the Visyna creatures. Surprisingly, Visyna entered the forest in search of Konowa to send a message: he must resume his commission in the Calahrienne army immediately.

When Konowa was of war and exile, iron elves had dissolved, the remaining members sent to the more remote regions. Iron Elves was a unit of all elves, consisting of elk ostracism in their homeland where elves believed that their black inclined ears were a mark left by the Shadow Monarch. The Iron Elves recently rebuilt, now led by incompetent Prince and Calahr is inflated (warning sarcasm: Now this is a fantastic novelty) is composed mainly of feces of the army calahrienne. And the unit is no longer a case of all the elves.

Iron Elves soon sent on their way to a small outpost, Luuguth Jor, to secure a powerful magical artifact: the East Star. A rebel army Elfkynan is also interested in the power of the star (and how it can help them launch their oppressors calahriens) and also walk away from Luuguth Jor. In addition, the shadow Monarch bad plans for the use of the star. Iron Elves must fight visually impaired creatures from the shadow trajectory of the monastery, facing both the rebel army and the forces of shadow monarch Luuguth Jor to win the Eastern Star.

The strength of “a Dark Forged in Fire” is in the characters, because most of them are well made and entertaining humorisamment. These are fun characters that keep this “next battle” story from falling into absolute mediocrity. There is still too much cliché in character type, but it turns out to be more harmless than purely offensive. Stimulation of the appropriate novel; I never got to the point that I felt I was about to crush because events moved relatively quickly.
