The Five Star rating should say enough.
Rarely do I burst out in praise for another book (unless that book was written by one J.R.R. Tolkien). However, I feel I can make an exception here.
To put it simply: the story is beautiful. As I soaked it up, every word, every sentence sung off the page. And even more rarely, all seemed to contribute something to the story. Furthermore, inside this engaging and evocative prose (and occasional poetry), there resides a depth that is not normally found in much of the literature produced in this present age.
The witty wording and turns of phrase render this 'depth' in such a way that only a small few can resist its alluring charm and provocative implications. Indeed, for those considering whether or not to pick up this small volume, let it be known: there is treasure here.
Rarely have I so much enjoyed reading a book as I did with God of Manna. The only fault I can find with it is that it was too short.
Epic Fantasy community, writing/reading community, and world, watch out: Daeus Lamb is someone to who figures to be a key player in the literary world for many years down the road.
For those interested, Lamb currently offers the book for free on his website at: https://www.thescratchingquill.com/god-of-manna-book/
