In the remote land of Laskar the seven ruling clans have vied with each other for power for over a century. The son of the Reavesburg Clan Chief, Rothgar, has been groomed all his life for a role supporting his elder brother, Jorik, in leading their kingdom when their father’s time finally comes to an end.
However, the rulers of their greatest rivals, the Vorund Clan, are in the grip of something older and far darker. They have been conquered by evil, a remnant from the time when the gods warred with one another and the world of Amuran collapsed into the Fallen Age.
Everything is about to change …
The first book in The Brotherhood of the Eagle series, Hall of Bones begins a tale of epic fantasy, magic and intrigue.
Damn, my second time through Hall of Bones, and it still hits you like a punch in the face. I’d forgotten how brutal this amazing inspired norse tale was, I’m am so emotionally drained after reliving what Tim Hardie puts his characters through.
Hall of Bones is Tim Hardie’s debut book and the first of his series, The Brotherhood of the Eagle. The reason for a reread was to refresh my memory because I’d never gotten around to reading the last two books. It was even better the second time, and now I’m ready to continue my journey in the world of Laskar.
Hall of Bones is a novel with a fantastic cast of characters, and the worldbuilding is absolutely epic. The plot and setting are excellent. The fighting scenes are beautifully written, gore ridden, and feel so real, as if you are there in the flesh, witnessing them first hand.
In the land of Laskar rival clans, are odds with each other, raiding each others lands, but there is a new power on the rise in the south. The Vorund clans chief has just murdered his father and brothers to take control, and his eyes are set on the rest of Laskar.
