I thought long and hard about how to go about doing the review for The Last Seal. I have always had issues with how to write reviews, because I don't want to give anything away for future readers. I was so thrilled with The Last Seal that I have literally sat in front of my computer for days stopping and restarting the review you now see before you. This one was HARD because the book is that GOOD!
I was given a copy of The Last Seal for review in advance of the author's blog tour. I had not planned on taking a look at it right away, as the tour wasn't for quite a few weeks. I peeked anyway as curiosity got the better of me. That peek was all it took to get me hooked. So, I want to share a little piece of the beginning of the book with you...
The intense white flames encircling the second circle roared around the rift Blake had created. For a moment he could see nothing inside that fire. Then, Blake felt his heart thumping as he realised he was no longer alone. Something had come through the portal: something vast which stood amidst the furnace the warlock had created, utterly oblivious to the heat. Slowly the flames died until Blake gazed upon the beast in all its terrifying clarity.
As it emerged, the giant form of the demon, Dantalion, roared: a sound that shook the earth from far below the foundations of the church to high above, indeed to the very vault of the sky.

I am a huge fan of fantasy fiction and I absolutely adore historical fiction as well. Richard Denning is a master of both! I will most definitely be checking out Denning's other books too, because I am hooked on both his story telling and writing style. I encourage every one of you to do the same. You will not be disappointed! After all, I am sitting her eagerly awaiting the next book in The Praesidium Series!
That's it. That's as far as I can go or I will start spilling detail after detail. Go get the book, and find out more about Richard Denning, himself, in my interview with him. Also, feel free to follow along on his blog tour and see what others had to say about this amazing book!
