Publisher's Summary

Isak is a white-eye, feared and despised in equal measure. Trapped in a life of poverty, hated and abused by his father, Isak dreams of escape, but when his chance comes, it isn't to a place in the army as he'd expected. Instead, the Gods have marked him out as heir-elect to the brooding Lord Bahl, the Lord of the Fahlan.
Lord Bahl is also a white-eye, a genetic rarity that produces men stronger, more savage and more charismatic than their normal counterparts. Their magnetic charm and brute strength both inspires and oppresses others. Now is the time for revenge, and the forging of empires. With mounting envy and malice the men who would themselves be kings watch Isak, chosen by Gods as flawed as the humans who serve them, as he is shaped and moulded to fulfil the prophecies that are encircling him like scavenger birds. The various factions jostle for the upper hand, and that means violence, but the Gods have been silent too long and that violence is about to spill over and paint the world the colour of spilled blood and guts and pain and anguish...

Not sure how this was rated 4 stars!!!

This story is very disjointed!! Poor character development, Isak goes from being a whipping boy on a merchant wagon to lord in waiting over the realm within a chapter. I had to force myself to finish this book, it was hard work. The story is jumbled up, it feels like the writer is forgetting to tell you who is who and why we should care. Trying to eavesdrop on a conversation 25 feet away describes this book!! The pattern is clear, every book in Sci-Fi & Fantasy is between 4 and 5 stars……Really?
