If you put together knights, goblins, elves, orcs, dwarfs, minotaurs, wizards, time travel and a nice love story, nothing can go wrong. And the author plays with those ingredients with mastery. The result is a plot that hooks any reader from the first page.
A young knight regains conscience after being rescued by goblins, but have no recollection of who he is. Taken to the Lord of the city Havenbrook, he is suggested to search for a wizard, who might be able to give him his memory back. The Lord sends his daughter as a guide and they start a journey that will group together some unusual companions. In the center of the story you have the orbs, that are seven devices that can give unlimited power to the person who manages to reunite all of them. And a sinister figure is trying to achieve just that, in order to free his master. Even without knowing who he is, the young knight feels he is an important part on the task of preventing that from happening. An his companions also play a role on that.
This is a very well written book, an excellent start of this series that promises to be very exciting and will keep you entertained for hours. Kudos to the author for his results. I hope the second book will not take long to be published!
