Books Finished - Tony Shillitoe

The Ashuak Chronicles Book One: Blood, Book Two; Passion, Book Three: Freedom

A brutal and violent depiction of a race under the yoke of slavery and their fight for freedom. Set against tyrannical powers, hierarchical church structures, and the might of dragons, the struggle for freedom through both bloody and peaceful means has many sub stories and plots. Tony ably brings in the themes of race vilification, tyranny of absolute and corrupted power, aryan supremacy and even the story of the zealots of Masada.

A great read for mature audiences.
