Who better to fight back the darkness of the world than the one responsible for most of it? Daylen, once known as the Great Bastard, the Scourge of Nations, Dayless the Conqueror, has lived in hiding since his presumed death. Burdened by age and tremendous guilt, he thinks his life is coming to an end. Unbeknownst to him he’s about to embark on a journey towards redemption where his ruthless abilities might save the world. Many battles await with friends to be made and a past filled with countless crimes to confront, all the while trying to keep his true identity a secret.
Brilliantly narration, decent world, okay writing.

I found this book via the author and his YouTube channel, being that I found it this way I went in thinking 'I probably won't hate it' and 'I'll give it a try'.
I was RIGHT i didn't hate it, in fact I absolutely LOVED it!
The world he built is amazing and so creatively conveyed, that it is in itself a character of the book. The actual characters are so engaging you want to be in the story with them; even if it is to smack one of them (protagonist till about 1/4 of the way in). The worst part of the book was the end, because it ended and I want more. Till the next book by Shad comes out I will have to make due by rereading this one many more times!

Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal's betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart - and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her - Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all... starting with the crown on Maven's head. But no battle is won alone, and before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal's powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force.

Amazing series and so much fun to listen to.
I really enjoyed this series and this book in particular with the hints about their geography. The story is captivating including the mental impact of war on those involved, not shying away from it but keeping it YA.
