About

An Epic Medieval Saga Fantasy Readers Will Love
In the backwater village of Callowford, Errol Stone’s search for a drink is interrupted by a church messenger who arrives with urgent missives for the hermit priest in the hills. Desperate for coin, Errol volunteers to deliver them but soon finds himself hunted by deadly assassins. Forced to flee with the priest and a small band of travelers, Errol soon learns he’s joined a quest that could change the fate of his kingdom.
Protected for millennia by the heirs of the first king, the kingdom’s dynasty is near an end and a new king must be selected. As tension and danger mount, Errol must leave behind his drunkenness and grief, learn to fight, and come to know his God in order to survive a journey to discover his destiny.

Review

First, can I just say I LOVED this book! This book introduces you to Errol Stone, a young man who doesn’t recognize his own value. Yet, the reader knows from the start that there is something special about this guy. I loved his wit and his character. I especially liked the fact that the whole novel is from Errol’s point of view. He is definitely the kind of person you want to hang out with if there is an adventure and I love his interactions with those around him.  As you embark on this adventure with Errol, though, there are mysteries, scary creatures, and people with supernatural powers. Spiritually, Errol begins to learn more about God and I am excited to see his development over the series. I so enjoyed this novel and when I finished it…I picked it right back up and reread my favorite parts! Highly Recommended!

**I recieved this novel from Netgalley. My opinion was not affected in any way.**
