The Sacred Band
by David Anthony Durham
Ebook, 544 Pages
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I found this book much like Acacia: The War with the Mein, in that I had a hard time starting, but the ending was good and I enjoyed the read.
This book definitely moved beyond the fantasy action and delved into optimism, hope, philosophy[undefined] and reason.
It made for a satisfying read, even if it was slow and not gripping.
I found it very uplifting to see the author portraying characters who deliberately broke their cycles of violence and hate and reforged circles of love and hope. Just when you thought someone was a complete badguy, they change, are redeemed and make things better.
