Etchings of Power
by Terry C. Simpson
Rating: 4.7 Stars
Genre: Epic Fantasy
The opening stanza in a new epic fantasy series that delves into the themes of war, corruptible power, love, betrayal, and absolution in the world of Denestia.
Ryne Waldron, a living legend at the edge of madness is haunted by a murderous past and the voices of his power that whisper in his head. Hunted, he strives to defend a village he swore to protect. But his enemies might be closer than he could ever suspect.
Ancel Dorn, a gifted student, struggles with rejection and must accept who he is or perish to the creatures that stalk him and his parents. When he discovers he’s targeted for death by beings that seemed to have stepped from the history of an ancient war, his only choice is to flee.
Irmina Nagel, Ancel’s former lover, and an assassin sent to find Ryne, is mired in her quest for revenge on Ancel’s parents, and must set aside her emotions or fail her final test. What she discovers may not only change her life but the world as a whole.
Caught between warring nations, vengeful leaders, magic and steel, myth and men, the fate of millions hang in the balance. Who can unite the kingdoms against a common threat? Who shall bring the power that drives the world to heel? Who will walk the knife’s edge of harmony? If none can, then Denestia is doomed.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Etchings of Power is an epic read, and yet still feels like just the beginning. If swords, magic, legends, and spells are your genre, then Etching of Power is certain to satisfy.
Terry C. Simpson’s debut novel is an epic tale, fantastically told. Etchings of Power is a promising opening to the Aegis of the Gods!
Terry Simpson hit a home run with Etchings of Power. Vivid imagery, compelling characters, and a broad reaching, exciting story arc makes this more than your average fantasy novel. Etchings of Power kept me enthralled from beginning to end, and I can’t wait for Terry to finish his next piece of work!
For those of you who like a nice, quick review, I will say this to you – Read this book, you won’t regret it, you’ll love it I promise – it will become your new BFF! …this is an amazing book and I do tend to get a little excited when I see an author (first TIME author) that can blow the big boys out of the water!
Etchings of Power (Aegis of the Gods) is a thoroughly enjoyable read, Terry has developed the characters well and left us with the constant desire to read and find out more in this evolving story. Promising authors like Terry always develop their characters, worlds and interactions carefully so as to leave us wanting the rest of the story. I believe we have stumbled upon a new and untapped talent in the Fantasy book world and am glad for this exciting new authors style and creativity. The only question i have is when will we see the next book?

About The Author
Talking to the characters I imagine has become an intriguing experience especially when they disagree with me. – Terry Simpson.
Terry grew up on the tiny Caribbean island of Barbados. He always had a love of writing for as long as he can remember.
Somehow, he grew to love fantasy more than any other although his early days were spent reading his father’s books from Louis L’amour’s westerns to Don Pendleton’s Executioner series.
When Terry moved to New York in 1986 to live with his mother, his love for books developed into him reading and loving fantasy authors such as Robert Jordan, Jim Butcher, Terry Goodkind , Brandon Sanderson, George RR Martin, Brian Lumley, Laura K Hamilton and quite a few others.
Terry began building the world for what is now called the Aegis of the Gods series in 2001. At first, it was just a hobby because of his love for fantasy and the written word. Slowly, it became a part of his life. Finally, in 2010, Terry decided to sit down and pen the first book based in his world.
When he isn’t writing, Terry enjoys reading, movies, gaming (especially MMORPGS), working out, watching sports, and playing with his beautiful daughter Kai.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Terry C. Simpson and ENT appreciate it.
