The Fantasy Review’s Spoiler-Free Review of The Fury of Kings (The Erland Saga #1) by R.S. Moule.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing a review copy of this book in return for an honest review.
If you’re looking for a new, underrated epic fantasy series to sink your teeth into, The Fury of the Kings by R.S. Moule is a pretty great book to pick up. With an epic plot, great worldbuilding, and fantastic characters, the only thing that let this book down a bit was some of the writing, but much of this can be overlooked.
Don’t expect a fast-paced start to The Fury of Kings. Like many epic fantasy books, this begins slowly, gradually introducing you to the characters and the world, laying the foundations of the narrative so when things do explode, they are exciting and immersive.
Unlike some other series in this genre, you won’t find yourself struggling to keep loads of characters’ names or places in your head at once. The author does a great job of giving you enough information to enjoy the story and know what’s going on, without overwhelming you.
I have no doubt that future entries in this series, The Erland Saga, will improve upon some of the writing and editing issues I found, and continue to bring an epic saga that is exciting and engaging. This is a severely underrated debut epic fantasy book, so go check it out!
