For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light. The "congregation of Israel" in its organization within 1QM can be compared to The Rule of the Congregation (1QSa), as it is described as being broken into thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens, with age limits listed for specific types of service within ranks. This storytelling structure of including two big epic convergences sequences reminded me of reading a book in Malazan Book of the Fallen. The War Scroll makes reference to "messiahs" in the plural (1QM 11:7), as does the Community Rule (1QS 9:11); the Rule of the Congregation explicitly mentions only one (1QSa 2:21-22).

And now that I've finished reading Sons of Darkness, I can vouch that these series' respective influences are embedded with justice. This work is not, strictly speaking, an apocalypse (namely, a heavenly revelation), and it lacks a "messianic" figure. The point of telling you all of this is to give you a glimpse of the time and effort Gourav has gone to craft this world – not only are there many peoples and cultures interwoven here, but there’s much magic, with many rules and uses, and a lot of awe and wonder and discovery.

For the children of this world are more prudent in dealing with their own generation than are the children of light. It is fantastic and I definitely need to get myself a physical copy for my shelves – it is that good.

Sons of Darkness by Gourav Mohanty | Waterstones

Vast and sweeping in scale, even while it is attentive to the minutia of its characters motivations and inner lives, Sons of Darkness is a fresh new, grimdark fantasy built on old bones and perfect for those who love their stories epic and their worlds unique!After that bipolar invitation, if you are still prepared to dive head-first into a chasm of chivalry and cynicism, then all I ask you to do is- leave your helms behind. He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. Since I finished The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie last September, I haven't read any grimdark novel before this month. Fantasy suffers from the same cultures explored, the same western histories interspersed into the stories over and over again, so we need books like the Sons of Darkness that build their stories from a different foundation. sides with Gmirkin also assigning the army and weaponry described in the War Scroll to the 2nd century BCE.
