I couldn't get enough of this epic story, not wanting to put the book down or miss a single word. Lukien, the Bronze Knight, may seem the loyal hero to his friend and king, Akeela, until he makes a very unloyal decision. Lukien finds Queen Cassandra irresistable and she finds her true love in the Bronze Knight. They betray their king, bringing Akeela to the brink of madness. These acts shape the life of the country Lyria, bringing war, triumph, and heartache. The Eyes of God wonderfully describes how the choices humans make, whether good or bad, mold the lives we lead.

The Eyes of God, a book of decisions and outcomes. A book of men and their triumphs and their failures, and how the combination of all these things shape the world and the future of others. The main character is Lukien, a man who has survived the harsh life on the streets of Koth, the capital city of Liiria. He has been taking in the care of the king and becomes like brothers to the king's son, Akeela. Two men of differences but nonetheless bound together by mutual care eventually find that an event will shake the very bond that ties them. A love comes between them and the outcome begins to throw a once perfectly good land, and the lives in them into madness. A story to be remembered, John Marco delivers characters that all readers can relate to and can feel for their hardships, and as their lives begin to change readers begin to feel more apart of this world and can easily keep track of events and personalities that join into the epic novel. Two men will feel love, love will bring war, war will change men and destroy others, but a secret magic will try to mend the disaster.

This book is intricately written, long, but very well played out. It follows the lives of multiple people and keeps the read interested the entire book, despite it's afore mentioned length. John Marco really captures the moment, and writes excellent imagery, allowing the reader to be caught in the words and feel as though they are watching they are reading. One of my favorites, it belongs in the hallowed halls next to Anne rice and Tolkien.
