One thousand years have passed since Ragnarök. The world has thawed, new lands have been brought to Midgard do to the collapse of Yggdrasil, and new magics have been discovered by the survivors. The old gods are dead and have been replaced by the new or ones smart enough to avoid death.

Brand was born Jabari, a dark-skinned human that is seen to be monstrous or mysterious in the city in which he lives. For his entire life, he's had to fight off attackers and deal with mistreatment. Worse, within two years he will be forced from the orphanage he's lived in his entire life in to fend for himself on the streets of Vellia. Before he is forced to go, Brand intends on gaining as much wealth and power as possible in hopes of having the kind of freedom only the powerful ever known.

 Review as of chapter 19.

As the title says, this is an interesting read. Has some issues with grammar and spelling, but nothing an editor could not fix. I am particularly interested in how all the interwoven mythologies will turn out.

Great Start, needs a lot of editing

Reviewed at: Chapter 42

As of chapter 26 I have enjoyed this quite a lot. 


A editor or more care when writing is however strongly advised. You should at least copy paste the first few chapters to grammarly. Bad grammar in the first chapters can be quite to turnoff to new readers. 


Update Chapter 42 :


i think the author has improved his writing in recent chapters quite a lot. Recent plottwist came really unexpected so good job there.

Will update rating from 4 to 5 Stars. Definitely worth reading. And the Story just started :D

Pure gold, liquid gold is all I can say.


This story starts with a scene that appears improbable and confusing: an orphan is sneaking out against his caretaker's will to engage in criminal activities. It is just enough confusion that you read a little more if only to be disappointed.


But you won't. In a feat of storytelling so slick, by the end of the chapter, the author has you completely convinced that this is normal and logical. And in a few chapters, has you believing five more fantastical things for breakfast.


This my friends is a trip down the rabbit hole in the style of the best fantasy writers ever.

Good Story, Bad Grammar

An awesome story that should be able to draw you in and partially succeeded with me. However the constant grammar and formatting mistakes make it hard to understand what the author is trying to say.

read it in a day

Love this story, needs a little editing early on but is absolutely great later on. In my opinion it is one of the few books that handles op characters properly, it has great worldbuilding and absolutely fascinating enemies. The dialogue is absolutely fantastic and I am left wishing for more, I would even pay for more. 

I just hope this story gets the recognition it deserves and Oh lord great author please continue gracing us with your presence. (overly dramatic I know)
