This saga has three books: 1- The Days of the Deer, 2- The Days of the Shadow and 3- The Days of the Fire. Only the first one has been traduced to english. I’ll put the images of the three books, but the second and third one are in spanish.
There are two continents: The Old Lands and The Fertile Lands. In the first ones live The Shadow (The Death) and Misaianes (The Eternal Hatred) he’s the son of the Shadow and he rules the Old Lands. In the Fertile Lands live free people.
Misaianes wants to rule all the world, so he bloodily attacks the Fertile Lands starting a war with that continent. All the free people join to counter Misaines’ power, but the power of The Eternal Hatred is a lot and his armies are pitiless.
I like this saga because it’s written in a very poetic way, in fact the author writes in the third book that “the poetry is the only way to say the truth”. Additionally to the poetry, some of the characters are powerful sorcerers, but the war’s course isn’t defined by them. The characters that define the course of war are people of the clans of the Fertile Lands, not only the leaders or the soldiers, there are also elders or simple people of the clans. In the second book an innocent girl is essential.
It has some sad and dramatic parts. But, it also has moving and happy events where the teamwork is very important. It has, too, a lot of war strategies or treasons for ambition.
This saga gives special importance to music and nature, that’s a thing that I liked. My favorite character is Wilkilén.
