White Wolf Press, LLC. Rutherfordton, NC 28139. There was one place, however, where his power was surpassed, and even a man of his accomplishments must exercise great caution: Adderhold, seat of the Zjhon empire. It was from there that Archmaster Belegra ruled with an unforgiving will, and it was to there that General Dempsy was destined. He had no reason to expect anything but a warm welcome, given his success, but there was an uneasy feeling in his gut.

Brian Rathbone (Author). Book 1 of 3 in the Dawning of Power trilogy Series. With the Comet becoming visible in the sky, Caitrin now has power, and and this teenager who never expected this is quite convincingly inept and clumsy in her first (initially accidental) uses of it. This quickly gets her a reputation as a witch-the dangerous kind that no sensible person wants around. And of course, no one believes the prophecy about the invasion until the empire's ships are on the horizon.

Power is back and no one is prepared...
I read these books in about three days. The characters were believable, and I cared about them, even if many of them follow the typical quest stereotypes. The plot was satisfying, and the books came to a successful close, while still leaving you wanting more from this universe. There is a good sense of believability here, as people die and are replaced by others who follow the Herald of Istra, Catrin. You feel a sense of loss, and can understand why the heroine feels like she is bad news for people close to her. Other cultures are brought into the story, and I found myself interested in those people as well. The story is not a single viewpoint, but the multiple POV is fairly well handled. She keeps shifts short, so you are not left wondering what happened to people you may be more invested in for long. (I think of Robert Jordan, who would switch POV for multiple chapters, and I would scoot ahead to see what happened to the storylines I was most invested in.)

I found myself wishing that more time had been taken to flesh out Prios, Cat's love interest, as he is a powerful character; and to develop the story between Prios and Cat further would also have been wonderful. I like them as a couple, but there is no pathos there. Additionally, Cat came into many different aspects of her power as time progressed, but she fails to use them. For instance, she learns to see the energy in the earth and living things, but beyond saying, "Wow, that's cool to see the world this way", nothing else is ever mentioned. Barabas, a soul similar to hers, tells her to ask for things from the world around her, but she never does. I would think that is a good way to get around the evil power formed against her, especially in the sequel trilogy. I am hoping that something comes out in those sequels, as otherwise, this poor girl and everyone following her are doomed to die horrible deaths.

I can heartily recommend this story to people who like the genre, as it is an interesting and well-written yarn. It is one I may return to one day for a re-read, and I can tell you I got two of the follow up books and one prequel on the basis of my experience with this trilogy.
First, I would like to thank the author Brian Rathbone for giving me this book for an honest review. This is the first three books of the World of Godsland. I was completely engrossed from beginning to end. The characters are strong and they all make up the many characters that keep this story going. The story keeps you wanting more, for me so much more that now that I am finished I am wanting the next three books of the world of Godsland - The Balance of Power. Brian has done a great job with this story and that he can keep the reader wanting to know what happens next because he has put together such an interesting world.
Great book. Bought it on the kindle and could not put it down. Highly recommend to anyone who likes fantasy.
The story is quite interesting, but the pace is so slow that it became boring very shortly.
Despite that I was interested what will happen (and that I got this series for free) I wasn't able to read it all, thus abandoning after first book.
This book have potential (at least the first one), maybe some editing and cutting would be helpful?

I greatly enjoyed this book! It seems rare to come across a synopsis that says so little about a book, but this is certainly one of those cases! To me it was a bit like Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Terry Brooks' Shannara series, and Paolini's Eragon saga rolled into one. In fact, there were two scenes that almost could have been taken from LOTR, though I don't hold that against Rathbone. This novel is actually comprised of three books, all of which take you to Godsland and reveal the story of Catrin Volker, revealed to be the Herald of Istra, and her companions and Guardians.

Catrin's story is truly incredible--she is a teenager when she discovers a power awakened within her and ultimately has to head on a journey to save all of Godsland. Rathbone's writing is captivating and draws you into the story immediately. At times I feel as if the characters' dialogue slips into something a bit too modern for the story and time being portrayed, but that only happens here and there. The level of detail with which Rathbone writes this epic adventure is very impressive. However, because there IS so much detail, not to mention so many places and characters, the story can be somewhat difficult to follow at times. There are multiple points of view, and at points in the chapters we would revisit some characters briefly, and occasionally I had to think hard to recall who they were and how they fit into the story.

Overall, though, I immensely enjoyed The Dawning of Power. Over the years I have become a huge Fantasy geek and this book was right up my alley. There is plenty of action with plot turns and twists to keep you driving onward to discover what happens next. I definitely became attached to many of the characters as I learned more about them and they played their part in the quest. I can't wait to read Rathbone's next book, and a part of me has to wonder if he won't continue Catrin's story at some point down the road. That door was certainly left open. I for one, would like to see that happen.
