[4.5/5 stars] I’ve been reading (and enjoying) R.A. Salvatore for almost 20 years, so what struck me as profound during Child of a Mad God was how well-rounded a writer he has evolved into. He was always an accomplished storyteller, but compared to his early works in the world of Corona (publishe...

Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.
Child of a Mad God is a return to Corona for R.A. Salvatore, but this time out the familiar lands are far away, as a wilder, dark world far beyond the Wilderlands takes center stage. Here savage tribes reside. Brutal raids see innocents killed. Ritual sacrifices...

It's clear that Salvatore wants Child of a Mad God to be a progressive, feminist novel, and it's almost there, but several moments sabotage his efforts, and show how far we still have to go before we can break away from the genre's tired tropes. That aside, Child of a Mad God is a welcome return...

This is a dark & gritty tale. Slavery and demon fossa hunting. Covens that teach magic through use of crystals. Warriors selecting females for their potential mates to further strengthen their prowess.
This is the best Salvatore novel in some time. I highly recommend it!

Dark fantasy. Expect murder, kidnapping, rape, violence on every page. Mostly it was long, I was bored, and I'm seriously surprised I made it through.

*I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*
I should say up front that I've never read a book by R.A. Salvatore. I've seen the author's name around and have been interested in some of the books, so when I saw this book show up on Netgalley and was interested in...

I’m giving this book 4.5 stars. From the beginning it reels you in. From trust and loyalty, the love and regret they carry will have you on edge. You will feel sad at times , you will feel happy at times, nervous for any outcome is possible. This is not the end.... only the beginning.

It's been a bit of a while since I've read a fantasy so delightfully gruesome!
This is the first novel I've read by R.A Salvatore, and from reading other reviews, I'm not sure if I would have found it a little more coherent/fully realised had I read some of the author's previous works. However, w...
