User Reviews

Before history, there was myths and legends.
12 June 2019 | by lau_s26See all my reviews

Among the vast and rich human resources, we have one that allows us to learn and improve: the art of storytelling. Before the times of documentation of history, were the stories about knights, warriors and their exploits that gave us the possibility to believe, grow and create. Entire civilizations were armed according to their needs, the majority based on beliefs, superstitions and myths. And between reality and legend there is always fantasy extolling every feat. The epic and the glory encouraging us to be brave. Punishment or redemption marking the path to good or evil. That's what this series is about. Comparable to others because it also represents various epic fantasies. But unique in its class because in the process each story, each villain and each hero possess the original and unique voice of the narrator. Face this experience without prejudice. You won't be disappointed!
