Good Monday all , today is Fantasy Monday. I got to review a very underrated book INDOMITUS EST (FOVEAN CHRONICLES BOOK 1) by Robert Brady

                                              BOOK BLURB

Imagine yourself, born into the suburbs, your parents working class people, your school nothing special.

Imagine that, for some reason far beyond your understanding as a very young child, a god that you didn't even know existed ear-marked you as his bargaining chip in a trade across realities.

Imagine that, from the time of that first first meeting and for your next eighteen years, that god - Anubis - threw everything he could think of at you, to break you, to torment you, to forge you into this thing to be traded.

And imagine that, at the end of it all, you passed all of the tests, leaving your life in a shambles, never knowing that you were being tested at all and, when the time came, Anubis appeared and tricked you into giving up your soul to him, only to make the trade and give you over to another god, named War, who by comparison made Anubis seem like a pretty nice guy.

I'm Randy Morden - welcome to my world. A world named 'Fovea,' where magic is real, technology the stuff of fantasy, and warriors with swords ride horses into battle, trying to stay one step ahead of their gods' will. I didn't ask for this life, but I promise you: before anyone ever knocks me down again, I'm going to have their blood on my knuckles, because a man can only be pushed so far!
                                        MY REVIEW
 Well what can I say. This is a brilliant book of pure fantasy. We have a young man that is basically was born to be traded by an Egyptian god Anubis. From the time Randy was young , Anubis has thrown everything and anything to try and break the young man. But as we go along we find out that Randy is more than just human. As he travels across the land Fovea trying to stay one step ahead of the gods . He meets knights and dwarves and all matters of magical beings  He vows before they are done there will be blood on his hands
   The characters in this book are such good characters. We have the true evil which are the God of War and Anubis .  Anubis is one evil dude that drives poor Randy to the edge. He doesn't make Randy some type of sword wielding superhero. He is just a man , who for the fun of the gods is transported to another universe. He is a flawed man and is so angry about what has been done to him. That he want revenge and will do anything to get it. Randy is just a man that wants to love with his whole heart and have that love returned . But he is a man and is quite cruel at some points  But he will prevail and give a world of hurt to those Gods that want to use him.
  The author takes on a ride that is pure magic and fantasy, that doesn't drag in any area. He doesn't dwell on the insignificant little descriptions of things. It flows as such a great pace. You will get sucked into this fantasy world. You will gasp and cheer for Randy /Rancor. You will want him to defeat everyone. This isn't your typical fantasy book. So if you are looking for a book with lots of action, loads of intrigue and of course there is a lot of fighting . Check this book out , just be prepared to be sucked into a great fantasy world . Where everything old is the norm and the ways of the modern world is considered magical. This is the book for you . I will tell you it is a big book but the time will fly when you start reading. So if you are brave enough check it out  You will not be disappointed at all
