After years of being a sci-fi fan, I became bored with it and mostly abandoned it for fantasy. The cross-genre of science fantasy never appealed to me. Nevertheless, I keep an eye out for new fiction that appeals to my interests. When the first in the League of Elder series Sygillis of Metatron came to my attention, I didn’t know what to make of it from the cover (giant seal?). I quickly became absorbed in this science fantasy tale.
A fascinating story of a hero that tries to save one of his dire enemies whom is trying to kill him. Set in Garcia’s world in which anything can crop up. Space battles. Castles. Bowling. Whatever materializes into his mind. This creativity makes the story breathe. Throw in some action and romance and you have the beginning of an epic. It continues in Hazards of the Old Ones. I haven’t read the next books in the series, so I don’t know where this all is going. The first two volumes, however, deserve a look by anyone needing to escape Earth for a little while.
