The Price Of Power is a fantastic introduction to a brand new epic dark/grimdark fantasy series from Micahel Michel. This is a multi-POV, character-driven, dark, and gritty story with interesting themes and political intrigue woven into it. The world was fascinating with various races with unique cultures, traditions, and backgrounds. I loved their introduction in the prologue, and it really gave us an understanding of how the different groups were aligned in the political landscape of the world. We also get a lot of political scheming and intrigue along with an interesting magic system. The writing is immersive and atmospheric with vivid descriptions bringing the world to life effortlessly.
