Book Review: The Brotherhood of Piaxia

Title: The Brotherhood of Piaxia
Author: Michael Drakich
Pages: 340
Language: English
Published: March 15th 2012


Years have passed since the overthrow of the monarchy by the Brotherhood of Warlocks and they rule Piaxia in peaceful accord. But now forces are at work to disrupt this rule form outside the Brotherhood as well as within! Follow Tarlok, Savan and Tessia as their paths intertwine, with the Brotherhood in pursuit and the powerful merchant's guild manipulating the populace for their own end.


The Brotherhood of Piaxia had a slow start, something that I dislike. But the action starts after some chapters, and then it was hard to put it down.

The plot was very good, I really enjoyed how the book had put the plot in the center. Many other books, put the characters in center and that can be a bit boring.

I liked Drakich writing style, he used a style that I appreciate. It was easy to read, but I had to read some parts twice. 
The book contained a lot of characters, in the beginning it was hard to know who was who. But I personally like books with a lot of characters, even though we didn't got to know them very well. Anyway, Tarlok, Savan and Tessia were the once we got to knew best. My favorite character must be Tessia, she is fantastic and very lovable! 

The fantasy in the book was fantastic. Lost princess and magic is like the best combination you can have in book and Drakich made a wonderful mix with these two points. 

To conclude, this book was very good, I liked it. If you like fantasy, then you must read it!

 I give this book 4 stars
