Game of Empires is an incredibly vivid and immersive novel.
Despite the history being quite daunting, the narrative is told consistently clearily and is extremely fast paced and engaging. The opening, for example, is immediately intriguing and Rodi, as a hero character, is well rounded and believable despite the fast pace of the novel. Even the side characters who are only fleetingly mentioned are interesting.
The world is told very clearly, each introduction to a new setting or character making the plot easy to follow, and the writing down to earth as well as being poignant at times.
There are many moments of anguish, and the constant trials that Rodi has to face keeps you completely engaged. It's a real page turner.
