In the beautiful land of Esthopia, people and elves live in peace. That is, until the evil Ortaks choose to attack. Come along on this journey with princesses, knights, and elves as they journey to join a fight. Will they survive the war, or is it only just beginning? Filled with action scenes galore, Invasion of the Ortaks: The Knight is sure to not bore.


When I began reading this story, I was surprised at how quickly it picked up. I was immediately intrigued by the character Egny. I was looking forward to learning more about her character as she was one of the characters that I was introduced to in the beginning, but I was disheartened to find out that she wasn’t in much of the story.

In this story, many characters were introduced at such a quick pace. It was hard to keep up with all the names and who was who. I found myself frequently questioning who a character was and what impact they made on the story. I wish the author had focused more on two or three characters and really worked their arc rather than add a bunch of new characters out of the blue.

I really liked the action sequences and how quickly the story moved. It didn’t bore me at any point. I was impressed with how the author gave really good descriptions of scenes and locations within the story. The descriptions didn’t confuse me once.

Overall, Invasion of the Ortaks: The Knight just needs a bit of work on characters. Other than that, this book is a great read that I would recommend to anyone who likes fantasy.
