Reviewed by JC Minnaar for Readers' Favorite

In The Seven Hungers, the first book of Rise of the Crimson King, by Morgan Quaid, the world is on the brink of pandemonium. An emergence has appeared in Brisbane, Australia. The emergence draws in and consumes all living matter, including humans and animals. It is up to Ambrose Drake, a Crown-certified sorcerer, to investigate this matter. The investigation is of such importance that the Crown has lifted the shackles binding Ambrose’s etheric power as well as the powerful Sovereign residing within. The threat escalates further when Ambrose discovers the emergence is a marker – the war banner of a demonic Sovereign and gateway to our world. Ambrose must traverse the Seven Hungers once again to find a way to stop the Crimson King from invading our Hallowed World.

Morgan Quaid’s The Seven Hungers was a story I found equally amusing and intriguing. Ambrose, Rook, Janus, and Winter are all written fantastically with relationships ranging from close friends, former lovers grown cold, to the animosity of working with a glorified snitch within your team - all of which are conveyed perfectly by Morgan Quaid. I especially enjoyed the constant world-building that took place as I learned of the realms of the Seven Hungers, Ambrose’s history with the Crown, and the paranormal abilities on display. I had more than a few good laughs when Ambrose had his bones broken and his body ripped apart but brushes it off as an ordinary day at the office. The Seven Hungers is a wonderful read reminiscent of movies such as Men In Black and R.I.P.D.
