The First Five Days (of the Lionean Saga) by John O. & Archie A. (Book Review #60)


This review is written for Online Book Club.


“I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars.”

Yosi Sint is the leader of the military for the nation of Lionea. This nation is confronted with wars on a regular basis, and its military leaders have the tendency of being killed mysteriously. When Yosi takes his place as the new man in charge, he has to be careful to not end up with the same fate. He also has to defend Lionea. The story consists of many dramatic scenes and magical enchantments, which is a nice addition to the plot.


Yosi is strong and is much more alert with what is going on around him. The backstory and the retelling of emotions are well written and clear. The first five days are essentially revolving around Yosi’s life. The backstory and character building were good but towards the end did not grow. This leaves the reader to wonder, and that may be a good sign if the Author has the intention of picking where he leaves off in book two.

This is a great fantasy novel, one that many like to read if they are into epic battles and warrior themed stories. The first five days has you sink into the book and not let go until the end. The book does contain sexual content and references to rape, sexual exploitation, and abuse. The format and rate of the material are similar to what you may have heard or seen in The Game of Thrones.


Another thing that I liked about this book was that it was not just written from one perspective. Normally this can be confusing for some readers. However, the authors successfully managed to separate the telling’s and maintain the adventure and drama within the tale.

I recommend this book to anyone that likes to read on fantasy and warrior style stories.
