Synopsis: One man, one sword against an island of the undead. The Demons of DunDegore is a full-on zombie invasion within a classic epic fantasy setting.
Demons have stolen the Sword of Kassandra, using its powerful magics to raise an army of the undead. Few survive the initial assault. Tadgh Dooley, a 17 year old werecat, travels to the island of DunDegore with his companions to rescue an 8 year old boy, the son of his best friend. But the forces of darkness have plans for Tadgh: capture him and force him to use his reality-altering abilities to free the dark god their worship from his extra-dimensional prison.
This is the second book in the series that acclaimed author Christoph Fischer has called “an accomplished piece of fantasy.”
Review: So, it took me a second to remember I'd read the first book. Once I realized who the sage was, I was right on task and able to concentrate on the story. Tadgh is interesting, not only for his abilities but his personality as well. Plus side, his sexuality doesn't take away from the story. It adds to it. He is on a foreign world though, and while they don't seem hostile about it, it's not exactly normal. He has a bit of a struggle due to one of his less favorable abilities, so he constantly wonders if someone can truly love him. He has guilt, so despite the power he possesses he's not a true monster. Then the Sage has that one weakness in this book, which is the same as the last. All in all, a very interesting story.
