Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Rivers Run Red is a work of fiction in the dark fantasy and epic adventure subgenres and was penned by author A D Green. The work is intended for the general adult reading audience and contains some use of explicit language throughout and scenes of graphic violence. Kicking off The Morhudrim Cycle series with this first tale, our protagonists are Nihm, a woman living peacefully in the wilds who is about to have her world turned upside down by the arrival of deadly hordes, and Renco, a mute man raised and shrouded in mystery by an Ancient Order. What results is a fast-paced but highly detailed fantasy tale that is sure to keep readers in suspense until its final pages.

Author A D Green has crafted an engrossing and imaginative work of fiction with plenty of apocalyptic delights, vivid battles, and tense dramatic moments to offer its readers. One of the most essential features to this work was the talent the author displays in worldbuilding, through such details as the new turns of phrase and words that we are introduced to, and the level of detail and logic worked into the wider economic, political, and military structures of the land. At the center of this, the interpersonal drama unfolding between Renco and Nihm offers up-close tension, emotion, and pathos, making this a fantasy epic that delivers on all the different levels that it promises. Overall, I would highly recommend Rivers Run Red to fans of immersive fantasy worldbuilding, three-dimensional and in-depth character work, and for dark and dangerous adventure readers everywhere.

Really good book. Took me awhile to actually get to read it. But so addictive I read it in 5 days. If you love a bit of fantasy, definitely worth buying
