Dean F. Wilson –The Chains of War-a review

It’s a saga of valour! It’s a saga of sacrifice! And it’s a saga of eternal quest of human from the darkness to the light!
The tale is epic in scope- depicting a journey against evil, a battle against darkness and indomitable human will. It’s an absorbing story of fantasy no doubt-but more than that it’s the story of humanity- the humanity that can fight relentlessly and fearlessly against what is evil -even in the face of death!
The children of Telm trilogy series is a work that tells the story of that human consciousness.
We are here to discuss the book three of the epic work by Dean F. Wilson –The Chains of War. Let us take a quick glance at first some background information related to the book. Years ago-it was a war of good versus evil- a fierce battle between the war God Telm and the beast of the netherworld. Agon ultimately became responsible to the death of the war god-but the beast was also got chained up in the underworld. There was peace and tranquillity in the upper world, until………
Until the chains that held him in place, started to loosen up, getting weak with passing years- giving the beast more and more freedom and ultimately
“But this time the thrashing and kicking was different. His upper arm pulled on the chain, and it did not pull back. It did not tighten, but grew looser, until the very jaws of the metal ring no longer had any bite. And so with another angry strike he broke the chain, and he held up his freed arm like a trophy, and he banged his fist upon the stone roof above in victory.
All the Hales heard, and all in Iraldas heard.
The call of Agon has been answered.”
It is a matter of time before the beast gets himself freed from dungeon and lashes his terror to the peaceful human world.
The war God was long dead, is there anyone who can behold his mighty power?
The father God Corrias has resurrected just in time to stop the avenging beast-but will he be able to stop him? Is he mighty enough?
Is there any glimmer of hope?
