To start with the Eyes of God is a book that takes place in a fantasy setting. Unlike most fantasy settings however it does not contain generic mythical creatures such as dragons and evil sorcerers in fact this book contains very limited amounts of magic which is so widespread among books of this genre. Don't worry about the lack of magic though fantasy lovers, I myself love the magic theme present in most books but this book really makes it work. The book starts with two long at war countries making peace and the king of one of the two countries offering the hand of his daughter in mariage to the new young idealistic king of the other country to seal the peace. However the princess has kept secret that she has a terrible and uncureable disease that threatens her life. In desperation the king sends his best knight Lukien to a land most believe is mere folk tales to chase rumers of a magical amulet that will supposedly make her live forever.
This book makes excellent use of tragedy and action to keep you on your toes and the characteres develop to much that you will never be able to predict what will happen next. This book has an amazing length of almost one thousand pages and still I wish that it would continue. Even rereading it was a joy I picked it up 6 monthes later and enjoyed it just as much as I had the first time.
In conclusion the Eyes of God is one of the best books I have ever read. There are so many plot twists that even when I reread it I still enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys not only adventure novels but also tragedy and even romance.
