Mithra, Maris, Mars we salute you
Enemies fall before us
Drowned in light
Crushed by the stars
Sol! Sol! Sol!’
Chant of the warriors of Mithras. Holborn, London, 2015
A book of visions for warrior poets. A wild adventure for action lovers. A manifesto for a more loving and inclusive society. 'The Seedbearing Prince: Part II' is all of these plus being a magical gateway to a visually stunning new cosmos. Leaping into the torrent with Dayn Ro'Halan, what an experience!
DaVaun Sanders is an imaginator, fuelled by dreams, mixing transcendent beauty with intense horror. His writing power lifts the reader out into the wild universe of the World Belt. Each planet depends on the others, they all fulfil a vital function and survive together. The World Belt is under attack from the jealousy and spite of the fearsome Voidwalkers, destroyers of love and beauty.
At the end of 'The Seedbearing Prince: Part 1', Dayn was trapped in the transparent underbelly of a fleshweep, a creature created by the Voidwalkers and as gross as its name suggests. As you can see from the brilliantly made cover of this book. None survive this experience. Will Dayn?
I'm not going to plot spoil, but I can say that Lurec, the bookish Preceptor and Nassir the powerful defender set out on a mission to find Dayn. The journey of the transport (the World Belt version of a space ship) through the torrent is one of many amazingly described experiences that kept me fixated on this book. None of which I can mention without giving away secrets. Well, perhaps I will just mention the Rage Hawks chamber and the magical tree that, for me, was the essence of all magical trees that have ever been written about. And the epic battle.
Fetch me a Rage Hawk, I want to join the battle. Hurry up with 'The Course of Blades', DaVaun Sanders, I need to know what happens next!
