    Book 1 is good, but books 2 & 3 are fantastically epic! I got the first book at a convention. It took a minute to get to it, but once I started, I had to grab the other two. This is a phenomenal and diverse series. Not only are the characters, plot, and worldbuilding amazing, but the lyrical styled prose and descriptions too. I fell in love with Itai, Symeon, and Dani. There’s so much going on with so many characters, I couldn’t stop reading. Don’t even get me started writing about super-bad Book 1 is good, but books 2 & 3 are fantastically epic!

Not only are the characters, plot, and worldbuilding amazing, but the lyrical styled prose and descriptions too. I fell in love with Itai, Symeon, and Dani. There’s so much going on with so many characters, I couldn’t stop reading. Don’t even get me started writing about super-bad Thalassa and the awesome battles. Are there dragons? No. The dessu beasts and giants more than make up for that. I only wish there was more of them and their origins in the 1st book. After meeting Arinak and Zandi, I wanted them to do some serious damage to a few people. The Nazillians turned out differently than I originally thought. They rule Falondul and even enslave some of the human population. But when you get into it, you see most of them are fairly good people, but the leaders would put Ramsey Bolton to shame. Yeah, they like flaying, too. One thing I really liked was the magic, or lack of too much magic. I hate reading fantasy when magic gets people out of everything. It gets boring. The nazil books have magic, but the real magic lies in the characters and the struggles they go through to overcome or try to overcome some serious situations. Naturally, it can’t be all good. I thought book 1 dragged in the beginning. I get that you have to set things up, but it took several chapters to get there. Maybe it was worse because Brahanu got on my nerves with her conflicting inner thoughts and behavior. I’m team Itai all the way. Pentanimir is great, but Itai is my man! It's hard to sum up this trilogy in a review. So many things happen that you can't focus on just one event or character. It's a unique work with elements reminiscent of The Game of Thrones, The Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, and even Shakespeare. This isn't just epic fantasy. The Nazil series encompasses several genres, blending the best of each into a magnificent story. The characters are unforgettable, and there's even a language created for the books. The author touches on every aspect - epic battles, cool beasts, political intrigue, new deities, diverse fighting styles & weapons, magic, romance, betrayal, treachery - you name it and it's in there. I haven't read a book in years with this kind of depth in every facet. If you enjoy unique and intense epic fantasy, this would be a great series for you to try. It's not light fantasy you can speed-read through. Each chapter builds the story and the characters connect. There are a lot of twists and surprises too.

    When reading and enjoying Fantasy Fiction it’s easy to make comparisons to the likes of Tolkein, Martin, and Salvatore, and to be honest I also felt strong similarities at times when reading Rise of the Nazil, but I also feel that Hall has a unique voice and depth of talent that deserves credit in her own right. The plot line is strong and compelling from early on, not something that can always be said for Fantasy Fiction as many authors expect you to invest a whole weekend just to catch up on When reading and enjoying Fantasy Fiction it’s easy to make comparisons to the likes of Tolkein, Martin, and Salvatore, and to be honest I also felt strong similarities at times when reading Rise of the Nazil, but I also feel that Hall has a unique voice and depth of talent that deserves credit in her own right. The plot line is strong and compelling from early on, not something that can always be said for Fantasy Fiction as many authors expect you to invest a whole weekend just to catch up on the backstory, but ROTN does a great job at hooking right from the off. A compelling voice in an overcrowded genre. Highly recommended.

    Leave reality behind and enter the land of Faélondul! Author Aaron-Michael Hall is an extraordinary talent. She tackles an epic fantasy like a pro – and indeed her output of successfully published and award winning books THE RITES OF HEIRDON diptych, THE RISE OF NAZIL trilogy, KURINTOR NYUSI, and TAMESA among them, proves that she is now considered one of our more significant epic fantasy authors. Creating a world of fantasy that is not only intriguing but also magnetizingly entertaining requires Leave reality behind and enter the land of Faélondul! Author Aaron-Michael Hall is an extraordinary talent. She tackles an epic fantasy like a pro – and indeed her output of successfully published and award winning books THE RITES OF HEIRDON diptych, THE RISE OF NAZIL trilogy, KURINTOR NYUSI, and TAMESA among them, proves that she is now considered one of our more significant epic fantasy authors. Creating a world of fantasy that is not only intriguing but also magnetizingly entertaining requires a vivid imagination, both for plot concept and for providing a space and characters who will transport the reader to another time and place. Hall does this with polished skill – creating the fantastical lands of Faélondul, magical characters about whom we care and can visualize, a fresh language - the Mehlonii language – and names for the characters that grow into reality. Adding adult romantic conduits enhances the reading experience. The prose is eloquent, as the opening paragraphs of the series reveal: ’Brahanu awake disoriented on the freezing ground. Her hands trembled, reaching out into the darkness that surrounded her. Her vision was as obfuscated as her mind, the dizzying dots causing her to nearly sway back to the ground. Pelting rain stung her face as she clenched her eyes shut, crying out in the darkness. Brahanu had traveled far beyond the borders of Cazaal in an effort to replenish the diminishing supplies. Now she wished she hadn’t. Her father didn’t want her to leave the safety of their village, but she’d convinced him otherwise. She assisted the lakaar, and persuaded her father to allow her to leave. But she wasn’t supposed to travel this far, or be gone this long….’ The book is lengthy but so well developed plot wise that the provided synopsis suggests the scope well: ‘Haunted by his past. Trapped by his heritage. Led by his heart. Faélondul is destined for war. A world ruled by Nazilians and their indomitable Chosen Guard, led by Pentanimir Benoist: a battle-seasoned warrior driven by honor and devoted to his people. When his ruler, Draizeyn Vereux, plots to exterminate the humans, Pentanimir’s life is thrust into a vortex of unspeakable conflict. Haunted by ghosts of his past, Pentanimir struggles to honor his vows while retaining his soul. His forbidden love for Brahanu, a human, is the catalyst for this war. Betrayed by his allies, bound by his honor, and led by his heart, Pentanimir leads a battle for the whole of Faélondul: a battle that resurrects an ancient threat that can consume both Nazilian and human. What victory can you claim when the enemy you must defeat lies within you?’ This RISE OF NAZIL series pleads to be a cinematic experience. The story is so involving and addictive that making it visual and audible is warranted. This is very fine adult fiction fantasy by a gifted author. Recommended.
