Best Review of The Path Of Flames (chronicles Of The Black Gate Book 1):
Most helpful customer reviews 16 of 16 people found the following review helpful. An exciting read and a promising beginning By Jen For a fantasy novel to really succeed for me, it needs to build a world that uses medieval and magical tropes but still feels unique, with intriguing lore and fresh, developed characters. Path of Flames succeeds with a unique fantasy world, somewhere between Wheel of Time and Song of Ice and Fire in how overtly magical and amorally political the world is. The characters are also great- the POV characters all have distinct, developed voices that makes you care about them, and open up richer understanding of what living in this world is like.But beyond the world building, a fantasy novel has to be fun to read, and Path of Flames had nailed that. Tucker writes action scenes that suck you in and play out like movies in your mind. They're always gripping, there's plenty of them, and they build from gritty, medieval swordplay to epic combat not out of place in an anime. His action never drags, and never feels gratuitous.All in all, this is a great start to a new fantasy series. The story is exciting and satisfying, but I finished it wanting to jump into what comes next. 8 of 8 people found the following review helpful. This one gets a big thumbs up & reread! By GG Castillo This one gets a huge thumbs up; but, DONT LET THE FIRST two chapters scare you away. Mr Tucker starts off in the deepest throw of battle and as the reader its confusing, not knowing that and why or for what! Hang in there ... especially if you're a Game Of Thrones fan. You'll be so very happy you did.I even went back to the first of the Thrones books (I read them so long ago) to see if I was loosing the "fantasy" side of my thinking because five paragraphs in, I had no idea what I just read! Yep, same lost feeling two paragraphs into Fire & Ice, and I knew I LOVED that book, so back to "Flames" I went. Started again and picked it right up!!! Guess thats what happens when you read too many Quilting books while you wait for another PWTucker book to come. LOLNever spoilers from me, just know this book is fantastically written, all plots (so far) introduced and recognizable and the deepest, maybe darkest depths of both love and hate are visited with grandeur. My only silly complaint would be I desparately dispise where it ends ... now all I can do is hope the next installment doesnt take as long coming as did Vampire LA (pun intended, Phil), but, no way I want to rush genious!!! I'll definitely re-read this at least once more (while I wait ;) 11 of 12 people found the following review helpful. For fans of G.R.R.M. By Paul M. Guyet I'm not into epic fantasy. I was ready to be bored. I was ready to flip ahead. But, somehow, not once did I find my attention wandering. I was with each and every character every single step of the way, utterly riveted.Tucker's world building give the reader just enough to want more, to fully understand the inner workings and history of this place he's created.This is a fascinating work and I cannot wait for the second piece.I'd recommend this for fans of "Ice & Fire" to enjoy until 2022, when Martin decides to publish the next book.

"The Path of Flames should be winning the David Gemmell Legend Award. It should also be on the best-seller lists, thumping many, many far inferior fantasy series. This is the type of big doorstop fantasy epic that reminds you why big doorstop fantasy epics became so popular to begin with: ceaselessly entertaining, packed with creative world-building and populated by compelling characters. All that tasty commercial goodness, cleverly delivered, and tied together with a thematically-cunning subversive twist. This book is, by no means, 'literary fantasy', rather, it is it is a crowd-pleasing romp that contains all the stuff we love to love, and hidden depths besides. Read it, fantasy fans. And rejoice." - Pornokitsch.com About the Author Phil Tucker is a Brazilian/Brit that currently resides in Asheville, NC, where he resists the siren call of the forests and mountains to sit inside and hammer away at his laptop.
