Follow two young men as they make their way through a world hell bent on civil war…..
Whym is the son of a street sweeper, who has grown up in slums of the capital Ratsnest. He also happens to be the last in line of a most disgraced family. Not wanting to follow in his father’s shoes, he takes an apprenticeship to be a seeker, pretty much a bounty hunter. He finds things are not as peachy as they seem and treacherous things are all around. Setting forth on a perilous journey to the Lost Land, he must find a creature of magic and myth. His quest will shape the future of the realm as well as himself.
Quint is the privileged son of a very powerful religious leader, who is set to inherit his father’s position. He decides to give up his life in order to join the fight against a corrupt council. Being an advisor to a remote tribe, Quint must find within himself the knowledge and strength to save these people from the doom of the oncoming army, and leaders of their own tribe.
Told from each side’s perspective, which alternates throughout the book, the first book of this four part series is truly a reader’s desire. It is full of magic and excitement; it keeps you turning the page, asking for more. It really opens your mind and has you asking questions.
The incredible storytelling has you envisioning the writer’s world in so much detail, giving you characters you can relate to, grow with, root for, and root against. If you’re looking for a new world to dive into, a story that keeps you turning the page, a tale that has you really thinking, this is the book for you. I really look forward to the next installment and I can wait to see what’s in store for us.
