Series: Children of Telm #1
The Call of Agon is a perfect read for those fantasy lovers who enjoy reading about fictional/mythical locations with a medieval feel to it.
The book starts off with our main character, Ifferon, as he is conversing with the head cleric, Teron. Ifferon is the last child of the dead god Telm and has been in hiding, with what I like to consider monks, for the last 10 years.
Right off, The Call of Agon starts with action. The monastery and the nearest town are about to be attacked by The King who wishes to rid the world to those with Telm's blood.
In the beginning our main character is a bit of a coward. He contemplates running and leaving everyone behind instead of standing and fighting.
But soon he is off on his quest, guided by the scroll left by Telm asking him to make sure the beast Agon stays banished in the dark underworld. Agon is, for all intents and purposes, the evil god. After he can hide no longer, Iffereon must journey through the land of Iraldas to stop the Call of Agon.
Overall this book earned four stars from me. At first it was a little hard to get into and it was hard to keep track of the different names, god and places. But once I got in to it, I really like it. It was nicely written and easy to follow even with all the complex names.
It also read very well for me. I'm one of those people who can't stand certain books because they don't read easy - the language is too complex, chapters are 80 pages long and it just doesn't flow as well as it should.
This wasn't the case for The Call of Agon the language was easy to read, the chapters were a bit longer but broken up in certain points and everything flowed nicely. Looking forward to book two.
