Gunmetal Gods is a dark fantasy story about Kevah, who is summoned by The Shah. Kevah agrees to train a militia enlisting his daughter to save the royal capital Kostany from the rival enemy. When Micah attacks Kostany, the sorcerer Aschere is stronger than Kevahs defense, and hence the battles end up with too much loss. Kevah then accompanies Sadie, Shah’s daughter, to take revenge and also take back the city.
Lies, hardship, pain, and loss are the name of the game, but for Kevah, it is about finding himself and becoming the legend he used to be. The grief of loss for his wife’s disappearance and his daughter is just too hard for him.
The story was complex and filled with elements of fantasy. If you are into godly battles, then this book is for you. The fight between Kevah and Micah was engaging, and the characters were created in such a dynamic that it all synced well together. The literature was descriptive, and the swordplay, magic, and developed guns really brought a thrilling read to the mix.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read epic storylines that are bold and filled with fantasy material.
