A refreshing unique and quirky fantasy romance. I love fantasy / Paranormal novels. But there are so many out there, that the average novels tend to blend into one. It takes a good author to pull something different out of the bag, especially something that in the real life you would think was totally mad.
Well, let me tell you Lee Welch has done both, a unique and quirky story that felt so real and true whilst reading the book. It takes a good author to make a horse that is nothing but sacking cloth, not only believable but also have its own character.
And who could not fall in love with Fenn Todd, such a down to earth guy, who has been downtrodden most of his life, can scarcely believe his luck when he is invited to the Sorcerer’s tower as a guest. And he has his very own horse, a dream he thought would never come true, even if it is made of sacking and only feeds on cloth.
Morgrin the feared sorcerer has many problems of his own, including one big lie to the nation. Yet everything he has done and does do, is firmly for the benefit of the country. He is so lonely.
The characters fight their growing attraction until it boils over. But neither has been 100% truthful, and a long with outside forces and evil hexes coming for them. Their path seems set to meet a grim end.
I loved the way the author wove the magic system and the history of the country into the story seamlessly, that you don’t even notice that you are being given information. No boring info dumps here.
There are betrayals, lies, political wrangling, dark enemies, which makes this book a riveting read.
I highly recommend the book.
