THE BREATH OF GOD
Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy
This book continues the epic that started in Beyond the Gap. It's an entertaining story, set at the end of an ice age, but the magical elements make it more fantasy than alternate history. The plot focuses on conflict between cultures, and the characterization is excellent. The hero is a strong protagonist, and his interactions with his fellow travelers provide depth to their journey, despite the slow pace of their odyssey.
The great glacier has broken open, and those in the Raumsdalian Empire face a new world. Count Hamnet Thyssen and his lover, the shaman Liv, lead a small group in an exploration of the new territory. They hope to find the legendary golden Shrine, but danger lurks.
