I was provided with an ARC of this book from the author in return for my honest review. Thanks M.J! 🙂
Jake and Ben had no idea what they had in store for them when they found the ornately carved box in Jake’s grandfather’s attic. Jake learns that there is more to his grandfather than he ever knew, and a great destiny and powers in store for him; greater than he could have ever imagined. He and Ben find themselves stranded in Estia, a different world completely, one which is struggling in the middle of a war between good and evil. Jake must learn to control his newly bestowed gifts and join the right side of the war if he wants to survive.
As soon as I read the description for this book I got excited. Two unlikely heros? Check! Strange new powers and an exciting new world? Check! A rip-roaring action adventure fantasy with intriguing character? Double Check! So I was overjoyed when I was able to obtain a copy.
This book was excellent beyond my expectations. The writing was really good; it was very descriptive of pretty much everything, so I really got a feel for the various aspects of Estia. The character were exciting and fun, and really easy to relate to them. Even though they were experiancing conflicts that I have never experianced, the author brought them down to a empathetic level where the everyday person could relate to them easily. And of course the story was very interesting and action packed, which is always a plus. 🙂 This was a very enjoyable, fun read which I would recommend to anyone who enjoys the fantasy genre.
Ps–> Princess Zephany is a kick-ass, drop dead awesome character! Zephany = lotsa love! ❤
