A remarkable debut which I simply cannot put down... Master of Sorrows is a brilliant and riveting tale of having the courage to find and choose one's path, and it left me wanting more. I recommend this book for lovers of classic epic fantasy looking for a modern voice.
A wonderful mix of the old and the new, and the ending had me begging for just one... more... chapter. I'm very impressed with Justin Call's debut, and I'm looking forward to seeing where this series goes. If you're a fan of coming-of-age stories, magic schools, and the idea of what's right and what's wrong, then Master of Sorrows is the book for you.
Move over Sanderson, there's a new master story-teller in town
Call is a modern high fantasy master, our very own Master of Epic Tales. [...] I believe he's the best modern high fantasy writer of our time
