Dreams of Hegemony by Christopher Reamy is an epic fantasy that will have you on the edge of your seat and make sure that you are not going anywhere until you have read the novel through and reach the end. The story follows Cronos, a young emperor who is filled with the desire to restore the nation of Peridell to its lost greatness. His people are battered and bruised after the war with a mysterious force, but this is not enough to stop Cronos from making his people happy. Dedicated and brave, Cronos will stop at nothing, even if something is after him!
He is plagued by strange, horrific dreams that leave him breathless and fearful. These dreams bring about a sense of foreboding that he cannot let go of and that he cannot get out of his mind. He has no idea that these dreams are a warning of a future that is even grimmer than the past. He has to figure out what these dreams mean or else he will have to face total failure and lose his people and his realm once and for all. He is thrust into a position that can jeopardize his whole future and his life as well. Can Cronos find out what danger lies ahead? Or will he perish along with his people?
Boy, was this novel dark and intense! This is the best kind of dark literature that grips your attention and makes you beg for more. I loved reading about Cronos, his dreams that disturb him, and the way he starts to take action against it all. He is not afraid to take necessary action and he is not afraid to admit that he is scared, which makes him among the best protagonists that I have read this year. Fast-paced, action-packed and intelligently woven, Dreams of Hegemony is a wonderful novel and a fantastic piece of fiction that promises to be one of the best novels you will ever read! I was so happy and satisfied after reading it!
