The Wizard Lord is the ruler of all the land of Barokan. He controls anything and everything from the weather, to keeping the peace by hunting down rouge wizards and other criminals. However, if he goes bad there are eight Chosen people (the Leader, the Seer, the Swordsman, the Beauty, the Thief, the Scholar, the Archer, and the Speaker) who when working together can remove the Wizard Lord, through persuasion or other, more gruesome methods. Breaker is the main character of this story. He, after months of rigorous training, takes over the position of Swordsman. During his travels, which he starts shortly after becoming one of the Chosen, he meets the Seer and the Scholar. Then they head out to find the other five chosen, because they found some "reasons" to remove the current Wizard Lord. Find out by reading The Wizard Lord.


I enjoyed every aspect of this book, except for the beginning, which starts out too slow. I think the author did a very good job at developing the characters and the plot, which made the story suspenseful and mysterious at the same time. This book would be enjoyed by almost anyone who likes fantasy stories. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
