The Rage of Dragons: Book One of the Burning | Evan Winter
4 posts | 2 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
One in twenty-five hundred Omehi women are Gifted, wielding fragments of their Goddess' power and capable of controlling the world's most destructive weapon --Dragons. One in a hundred of their men has blood strong enough for the Gifted to infuse with magic, turning these warriors into near unstoppable colossi. The rest are bred to fight, ferocious soldiers fated to die in the endless war. Tau Tafari, an Omehi commoner, wants more than this, but his life is destroyed when he's betrayed by those he was born to serve. Now, with too few Gifted left and the Omehi facing genocide, Tau cares only for revenge. Following an unthinkable path, he will become the greatest swordsman to ever live, dying a hundred thousand times for the chance to kill three of his own people.

I‘ve heard this described as Game of Thrones meets Gladiator. Not sure if that‘s accurate, but overall, this is an African inspired revenge fantasy. It features a diverse cast, female mages called the Chosen, dragons, and our hero Tau, set on revenge after a devastating loss. I didn‘t like Tau much, but his motives and actions led the story. I‘ll say this wasn‘t for me, but I did finish and I can see the appeal for others. Love the cover though 😊

Did I enjoy this book? Well, I deprived myself off an hour of sleep each night before work, and I was up until 3 AM determined to finish it last night.

At first I really couldn't empathize with Tau, the main character, but as the book went on, it became harder and harder to do anything but. His development is painful and thorough, and he drives the plot forward, barreling into any desire to put the book down and go to sleep. 5/5. Awesome book.
