While this started out in a very classic fantasy story, the plot lines and characters got quite interesting. is it a written law I missed?
Yet demonic gheists terrorize the land, hunted by the Inquisition, while age-old hatreds rage between the north and the south.

This means that there's a lot going on and, in the first half of this fast-paced book especially, the large canvas that Tim has created has been given some broad strokes and the The Pagan Night (Hallowed War) has been set for what promises to be an entertaining series of books.
But time has passed, old prejudices and older grudges have settled back in place, and the two countries are ripe for war. Malcolm Blakley, hero of the Reaver War, seeks to end the conflict between men, yet it will fall to his son, Ian, and the huntress Gwen Adair to stop the killing before it tears the land apart. Soon Frair Lucas arrives to the castle and tells Gwen's family that he's been tracking a gheist.
Ian was certainly brave and capable, but his headstrong and arrogant nature was off putting. This book covers a multitude of topics from war to religious influence to heresy. He writes well about conflicts and intrigue, and also does a fine job at writing about the characters' lives and feelings.
The gods go feral, mad, destructive. Sorry but we can be snobbish as bookworms when it comes to covers 😉 Secondly the plot does sound incredibly promising, but I am so hesitant to start any new, epic series. Lots o I'm honestly not sure what to make of this book. This may sound a bit strange and The Pagan Night (Hallowed War) not sure if all readers will agree with me on this, but this novel reads almost like an entertaining and exotic blend of Kate Elliott and Gail Z. contains action, grittiness, magic, intrigue and well created characters.
But I read enough books that does this very thing to suspect that the author had the challenge that many characters are in similar settings and it was hard to ease into a new POV without being blatant in the first sentence. And in the end, the decisions she makes may change the world forever, or end it. " - Booklist Starred Review "Take a bit of fantasy, mix in the horror of the demonic, and put in some top notch writing and you'll have Akers' latest novel.
Praise For The Pagan Night: The Hallowed War 1… "Full of strong world building, cinematic and frequent battle scenes, high adventure, great characters, suspense, and dramatic plot shifts, this is an engaging, fast-paced entry in a popular subgenre. Point of view shifts within chapters, sometimes within scenes, made it difficult to feel close to some of the characters.
The Celestial Church has all but eliminated the old pagan ways, ruling the people with an iron hand.
It's a complex, engrossing story that pulled me in right from the start, the book flows well with a slow start building to an epic finale and never once was I bored or found it a slog to get through.
This felt pretty old school and well, I love old school.
The characters are well thought out and sympathetic and the fights and battles are well written.
