The author paints an exciting and adventurous story of swords and sorcery in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and integrity. If you’re looking for an action packed, sci-fi fantasy adventure that’s packed to the rafters with courage, bravery and heroism, this book has it all…and more.

The story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.

There is something very magical about reading fantasy fiction. It speaks to the very thread of my imagination, jolting it to life and transporting it on an exhilarating journey. This story did exactly that, leaving me captivated as I was introduced to a new world and mesmerizing characters. It appears to be the author’s debut novel and I just have to say that it was a book that fans of the YA and Fantasy genre will not be disappointed in.

Now, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.

There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly spellbinding journey!

It’s one of those books that comes along occasionally that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader.

If this volume is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from S L Gassick in the future. This has all the hallmarks of making a great series. I would definitely recommend this book and would love to see it adapted for the Silver Screen. I honestly think it would make a fantastic movie or TV series. A well-deserved five stars.
