A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne (Book One of the Seven Kennings)

A Plague of Giants (Seven Kennings, #1)

In the start of an enchanting new series, the New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles creates an unforgettable fantasy world . . . one that is forever changed when an army of giants invades. The kingdom’s only hope? The discovery of a form of magic that will call the world’s wondrous beasts to fight by the side of humankind.

As a fan of the Iron Druid Chronicles, I had high hopes for this new series by Hearne.

The writing is fantastical and intricate. There were so many different characters and places and all of them had their own language, gifts and then there were the giants.

It was a lot of work to try to remember everyone and who was who. I have to say that this is one series I think I’ll pass on. Even my husband who is a huge fan, couldn’t get past the first chapter.

If you are a fan of Hearne, definitely give it a read! It may be just your cup of tea!

      1. Tell me about it. And I have trouble remembering my neighbors’ names, never mind a cast of 150 in a book.

        On the other hand, at least the fantasy books i’ve seen don’t follow the Russian system, where you not only have first names, last names, and patronymics, but one or two dozen diminutives per character.
