Corinth, a newly appointed Sage Knight from Terranset (the land of mythical creatures) is sent as a mercenary to investigate blocked roads. But it’s not that simple. After a few turns of events, Corinth (along with fellow mercenaries Aventis and Nadine) play into the hands of a very powerful necromancer. Instead of killing Corinth and his friends, the necromancer sends them on a quest to find a magical book. Rieka (the necromancer’s daughter) is sent with them as a “precaution” but turns into a helpful hand, at times even helping them. How will this turn out for Corinth and his friends? How will it affect Terranset?
I really liked this book. It was pretty good. My favorite part is when Rieka walks out of the tower into the mass of dead not using any emotion as if she were cold hearted. At some points I felt fairly confused, having to reread a paragraph two or three times. My favorite character was Corinth because of his attitude. I also liked that this was PG so when I was babysitting and the girl asked what I was reading I could read it out loud and she loved it. This is the first book in a series. I would recommend this book to 10+, for people who absolutely LOVE fantasy (like me) and who have read and liked “Fable Haven” By Brandon Mull (especially book five) and “Lark Rising” by Sandra Waugh.
