[Advance Review] A Conversation in Blood: An Egil & Nix Novel

pixlr_20170115170455668

Paul S. Kemp is back for his third installment of the Egil and Nix trilogy. An epic story about two best friends going out and causing havoc with an extra large dose of smartassery. ~Larry Killian, The Founding Fields 

The Egil & Nix storyline is one that I’ve been following for years now, waiting with bated breath for the third installment to finally release after the series was sold to Del Ray. When the book was finally announced I was like a little school girl waiting for the book to become available for reviewer. Upon opening the book I knew the magic was still there, I knew this was something that the wait was worth it, and something that I hope is not finished yet. I think it would be great if Paul would take the series and make it into an epic saga instead of just a trilogy.

Nix is a nimble thief with just enough knowledge of magic to get into serious trouble. Egil is the only priest of a discredited god. Together, they seek riches and renown, but somehow it is always misadventure and mayhem that find them—even in the dive bar they call home. And their luck has yet to change.

All Nix wants to do is cheer Egil up after a bout of heartbreak. And, of course, strike it so rich that they need never worry about their combined bar bill. But when the light-fingered scoundrel plunders a tomb and snatches mysterious golden plates covered in runes, the treasure brings terrifying trouble. Pursued by an abomination full of ravenous hunger and unquenchable wrath, Egil and Nix find all they hold dear—including their beloved tavern—in dire peril. To say nothing of the world itself.

Egil and Nix are two characters that have an Odd Couple dynamic to them but it just fits. You’ve got the “magic school dropout” full of glib and sarcasm with Nix. Then you have someone who is serious but not quite totally straight faced with Egil, the priest of the momentary God, the only priest. The character dynamic between the two just grows even more with the third book. I do have to say takes on a bit of a darker tone compared to the first two. While there is still comedy there I feel as if there’s not as much as there used to be. This does not make the book bad, in fact it makes the book its own, not a cookie-cutter that is copying off the two previous books.

If you ask me if I’m going to recommend this book I’m going to say absolutely there’s no reason not to read it, it’s fun, it’s exciting, it has moments that make you hold your breath. Of course this is the third book in the series so you need to go read the first two. Paul definitely does not disappoint with this series, it is fantasy at its best.
