The Glorious Path (The Record of the Murilánni, Book 1) by Seth Cooper is an epic work of fantasy, a story that has the beauty and depth of mythical tales the likes of Aeschylus, the compelling and arresting narrative of J.R.R. Tolkien, and the impassioned tales featuring gods and humans. The world of Oerstra is godless and humankind suffers without hope. One would think they have forgotten where they came from. It is in such a desolate time that an unlikely hero is born, Talathastro Maslor, a boy from Naug Faloth whose heart is buoyed up for adventure. Readers will love this young boy and his companion Patyr as they become caught up in a conflict with the demi-gods Helior and Rangillion. But what are these demi-gods still doing in a world that has forgotten about them?
This is the kind of book for readers who love works with intricately woven and complex plots, characters that are well-imagined and sculpted from the depths of a rich imagination. The readers become very interested the moment they come into contact with the protagonist and they can’t help wanting to know his fate. The clash between demi-gods and humans is a huge conflict and it is what animates this glorious tale. Seth Cooper has a gift for narrative and his writing conjures up images that excite the imaginations of readers, transporting them to a world that is as exciting as it is beautiful. The author brings into his work powerful literary elements, like suspense, a keen sense of contrast, and dialogue to enhance the plot and character development. The Glorious Path (The Record of the Murilánni, Book 1) is a great success, a highly entertaining work in the area of fantasy. This book stands out in many aspects, but its originality will forever interest readers.
