Saved in the nick of time by the battle-ready Princess Egny—the niece of Eniktronia’s King Haakon—Carl travels with her through the countryside, attacking the encampments of these dark-clad invaders. While lodged at an inn for the night, enemies posing as local tavern-goers make an attempt on her life. News of the attack reaches the king, who sends Sir Klaus eastward across the outlaw-riddled Bending Pass and into the country of Antonia to learn more about the assassination plot. The novel, filled with well-wrought adventure, hosts a large cast, from the warm Asgrim to the foolhardy Gils, their back stories as attention-grabbing as the main narrative. We learn, for instance, the unsettling history of Christopher, a trader who freed two condemned slaves and joined forces with Klaus against the incoming Ortaks. Esthopians who, faced with the prospect of war with a brutal tribe and betrayal among their ranks, band together—building interest for the series’ next installment.
About the Author
After reading the Icelandic Sagas in his childhood, and having a great interest in the world history, the author creates his own world, “Esthopia.” A continent of six kingdoms, where you will be taken on a journey along with men and Elves, as they fight a brave battle against the evil of this world and the Underworld. Come with us and join Sir Klaus, Princess Egny and the Elves as they fight side by side. Discover a wonderful landscape, as you go through Bending Pass, and over the Great Mountains. Sail with us across Lake Etu, and travel all the way to Cape City.
For some reason people relate this story to The Lord of the Rings and The Game of Thrones. Don’t know why, but I kinda like it though.
Soon I will be publishing the fourth book.
