    An excellent new series from the pen of Harmon Cooper. 'War Priest' is not only a wonderful storyline and plot with fully-developed characters, it's also really interesting because it's based on factual information (as is a lot of Mr Cooper's work) and, as a result, feels real. You can tell that the author enjoyed writing this, as he passes his enthusiasm via the words to the reader, who then turns the pages with abandon. I don't want to say anything that will spoil any reader's enjoyment of this An excellent new series from the pen of Harmon Cooper.

You never know whether to truly trust our main character, Arik Dacre's partners on his mission, or not, which makes it all the more intriguing. The momentum of the story alternates between the action-packed pages and where the reader learns more about Arik's life and the areas and culture around him. The actual task to get a hold of the 'Mask of the Fallen' itself is genius. An absolutely twisty and turny, beautiful, emotional book, with bloody, bloody, fight scenes (yes, I did mean two uses of 'bloody'!). Roll on book two!

    Long live the war priest. This book has a lot of good action and good world building. The author has left a lot of room for development of the characters.

    Throughly enjoyable new series A wonderfully created world of characters to become invested in as Cooper increases his Cultivation repotoire with a story of a young man thrown into chaos and uncertainty as his way of life is destroyed putting him on a path against everything he has been brought up to believe in. Some great tension between the paths he is forced to follow and a destiny beckoning as he tries to come to terms with what he may have to do ,and how others can help him. I liked how these Throughly enjoyable new series A wonderfully created world of characters to become invested in as Cooper increases his Cultivation repotoire with a story of a young man thrown into chaos and uncertainty as his way of life is destroyed putting him on a path against everything he has been brought up to believe in.

I liked how these divergent paths and characters are brought in to change and expand his way of life whilst also having their own purposes giving a great level of trust/mistrust relationship throughout the book. A bit more younger destiny feel compared to his redemption path in Pilgrim but a great level of detail catches and holds your interest from start to finish.

    Mask of the Fallen is an enjoyable read. It tells the beginning of a revenge journey, set in a Japanese/eastern fantasy world. Although Goodreads is saying this is a progression fantasy, it doesn't read as one, with the evolution of the character coming through training rather than some growing magic power. I had already read the Pilgrim series by the same author, so I knew what to expect. I think in this one the main character is more charismatic and also the plot is more straightforward, while Mask of the Fallen is an enjoyable read.

I enjoyed the dynamic between the protagonist and his companion, and the other side characters are interesting as well. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Tis quite a good book! This new series by Harmon Cooper is definitely going to be on my reading list. There is no cursing or other stuff, which is a breath of fresh air from other books. The characters have depth and the combat is based on actual sword and fighting techniques. Personally, I think that Meosa should be able to make a water whip with his yokaura, or whatever it is. Plus, that mask is AWESOME. All in all, well worth the five stars. Thank you for reading this review!

    Cooper has written an epic first novel in the War Priest series. The hero, Arik is a talented and driven young healer who is not world smart. His lessons in how his world really works are painful and sad. The people he meets along the way reveal all the wonderful and awful traits one finds in humans today. I loved the world building, the attention to detail of the fighting styles, and insights into Eastern techniques. It made the book so much more enthralling.

    War Priest, nothing more needs to be said… Incredible cover on this book enticed me to read, and I was pleasantly surprised. Harmon Cooper does an excellent job on setting the premise of this book one…the long game. In that HC is writing a keenly layered epic story quietly, subtly developing an epic series as well as in depth character development. The title says it all, Harmon Cooper delivers powerful book one of a promising strong series. Well done.

    Amazing! Mr Cooper has outdone himself. I absolutely loved the premise of this story. The characters are well thought out and developed expertly as the story progresses. Very excited for the next book.

    Great Story This isn't normally the kind of book I am drawn to. Given that, this was an exceptional story. It hooked me early and held on throughout, bringing concepts and a culture that is very foreign to me personally, making them easily graspable and enjoyable to read.

    Epic Journey! Wow, I didn't see where this story was going from beginning to end! I love how Arik grows and adapts to his changing circumstances! Can't wait to see where book two takes him!

    Solid new series by Harmon Cooper I am a fan of much of HCs work, although there have a been a few I haven’t continued with, this one I will definitely follow through with reading. Solid story, historical Japanese elements with a twist on magic elements. Solid editing as usual.

    A fantastic start to a new series Mr Cooper continues to grow and show his chops as an author. I went in with anticipation after the pilgrim books and was pleasantly blown away by the quality of the story here. Congrats sir, you have written a fantastic book

    Thought-provoking and Highly Exciting Great new characters and story. I love Pilgrim and tho different it is just as intriguing. Love the somewhat irritating yokai. Now I can look forward to both next books. Brilliant!
