Crystal? Clear! Marco? Polo!

Reviewed at: Chapter 34

Exactly what the synopsis says, an action adventure story of slaves trying to escape and find their freedom in a fantasy world. The wilderness is full of beasts, bandits, and soldiers chasing them. It's brutal and cutthroat, dangers lurk around every corner, and our heroes never get a moment of rest. Outnumbered and outmatched, they have to get crafty to prevail.

We primarily follow two POVs as their paths slowly cross. The world is low fantasy: barely any magic, but a few different and interesting races. Lots of action, and the writing is on-point, it's pretty high quality. At times it gets slightly predictable, but it's still well executed. The pacing is both fast and slow at the same time; lots of stuff happens every chapter, but the plot is advancing at a relatively slow pace. The character interactions are also pretty fun to read.

The story itself is pretty gruesome and visceral, people whipping each other, arrows flying through eyes, faces chopped in half with axes, girls drugged and sold into slavery, several almost-rape scenes. Lots of blood spilled, almost every chapter. But 99% of side-characters are scum of the earth, the worst of the worst, so they kinda deserve it.

All in all, interesting fantasy book, really well written, give it a try!
