” avenged sevenfold: The Sevenfold Stone” by Aprile Kumar Bhaskar is a fantastic novel that takes you into a realm of fantasy not seen before or since. Inevitably, when reading Harry Dresden’s world, “The Dark Tower,” I thought of the Tower of London and of course, “Avengers Tower.” However, ” avenged sevenfold: The Sevenfold Stone” takes you far beyond the boundaries of imagination and brings us into a place where the limits of human perception are breached not by enemies but by strange forces that seem to have no reason for existing. The book is chock full of action scenes that are masterfully written, rich with descriptions of locations and settings, and laden with powerful characters who grasp our attention from the first word.
This is a fast-moving book with excellent character development. It is also rich in plot twists that keep you guessing just how the story will end. In fact, at times I almost felt like I was reading a sequel to “Windmills of the Gods.” The plot and the characters are excellent. With its excellent plot and characters, ” avenged sevenfold little piece of heaven” is quickly becoming one of my favorite books.
Harry Dresden lives in Chicago, Illinois. He is an avid reader and writes in a stream of consciousness style, as if he is talking to his friends over drinks. One day, while drinking at a bar, he gets himself in a real pickle. He witnesses a brutal murder, during which his friend runs down and dies. In the following hour and a half, Harry is haunted by images of the crime and by hearing the voice of the dead man.
The bartender tells Harry about the tragic death of his friend and tells him that it was caused by a child cheating on his wife. When Harry tries to find out who the child is, he learns that it was not his imagination. It was the deed of “a sevenfold sword” that killed his wife. Harry then has to reconcile with an old enemy, Doctor Seward, while trying to maintain his own life and continue working at the bar. This is a fast-paced book that keeps you reading without your mind being totally exhausted.
This book is very graphic and contains some very disturbing scenes. There is a scene in which Harry’s best friend, Aludine, is brutally murdered. Her head is severed very neatly and her heart is put into a container and left on a table. Harry and his assistant, Beth, see the body and immediately recognize the brutal act for what it is: a murder. They then discover that Aludine was pregnant, which adds to the horrifying scene of her murder. Throughout the rest of the book, you can sense the writer trying to get your blood boiling.
There are moments when the book can be rather slow. However, if you’re a fast reader, this might not bother you too much. There are many brief scenes in which characters discuss what is going on. I especially liked how the characters talked about “closure.” This is a wonderful word for readers as closure is such a nice feeling to have when reading a book. Some writers forget to provide closure, which makes their stories boring to read.
Overall, this is a solid book. It takes a short time to read and is very descriptive. I definitely recommend this book if you like action and fantasy combined into one book.
I hope this Avenged Sevenfold review helps you make your decision on whether or not to read the book. If you enjoy action and fantasy combined into one book, then you will love The Avenged Sevenfold. I really enjoyed reading this book and I know you will too. Try it out and you may find yourself reading it again just so you can get through the pages.
