The Legends of Ansu (Book 9)
Date Published: July 16, 2020
Jaran Saerk is an exile from the North, driven out of his homeland by a sorceress who killed his family. Now serving as a warrior in the armies of the Imperial Shen, he’s never forgotten his vow to avenge his family and take back what is rightfully his.
Recently captured, Savarna hides a dark secret and doesn’t plan on staying a slave for long. Once she’s escaped, she’ll slip inside the Golden Palace and kill the Empress of Shen. When she meets the exiled warrior from the North, she finally may have her chance.
Finvar the Droll is a retired thief who insists he can help Jaran in his revenge against the witch. But whose side is he really on?
With enemies surrounding them on all sides, the trio must unite to stay alive in a realm trapped between war and sorcery, and to take down the witch Sheega before she destroys them all.
J.W. Webb is such an imaginative and descriptive storyteller. This book was very easy to follow as a reader.
I never felt confused and that is a great testament when you are introducing readers to new characters and a world such as this.
It's important to have characters you like and dislike in a book and this one definitely had those in droves. There were so many that I loved and even plenty to root against. Overall a great cast of characters!
I liked that there was one ultimate plot and goal in the book, but that there were several personal issues for the characters along the way. There were little issues along the way.
I definitely think if you are looking for a fresh new world to dive into, this one is for you. He does a great job of melding many elements to make a cohesive Fantasy read.
About the Author
J. W. Webb is an English writer living in Georgia. Mostly he writes fantasy, though sometimes diverts in even stranger directions. His epic saga, The Legends of Ansu, blends the mystic grandeur of J.R.R. Tolkien with the gritty realism of George R.R. Martin. Webb's characters are three dimensional and flawed, their world a tapestry of vivid color and constant motion. All the books feature beautiful sketches by the late Tolkien illustrator, Roger Garland. When he’s not writing, he spends his time in the garden or attending to the demands of his cat-overlords and dog companions.
