Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the start of this workmanlike fantasy from horror writer Waggoner (Pandora Drive), everyone in the country of Athymar suddenly falls asleep. On awakening, most people have gained a minor magical ability (e.g., one man can change his eye color). "The Change" has a more significant effect on others, including Tarian Ambrus, a former soldier. Tarian is now a healer, but he can no longer hold a weapon. Tarian's wife, Lowri, suffers an even more unpleasant change. For Lowri's sake, Tarian and his son, Phelan, join a quest to find the source of the magic and a way to stop it. The group, which grows to include a royal wizard, a priestess-adviser to the queen of Athymar and an Eyslk (an elf type), trots along its merry way as if its members were heading for a picnic in the park. Hopefully, the action will ramp up in the second book. (July) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
A sudden slumber overtakes the entire population of Athymar. Upon awakening, each person discovers a unique magical talent for the purposes of either good or evil. The randomness of the gifts tears families apart and throws the land into chaos. Desperate to restore the people to their former state, the queen of Athymar chooses a group of trustworthy citizens-a former warrior and his son, now a gifted healer; a warrior of the elven-like Esylken; a fierce swordswoman; and a wizard-to find the source of the change, even if it leads them to the gods themselves. Waggoner (creative writing, Sinclair Community Coll., Dayton; Thieves of Blood) launches a new series set in the world of the Nine Known Lands and featuring a cast of fully realized characters and an intriguing premise. A good choice for most libraries. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    A fantastic quest fantasy

    When the Change happens, every man, woman, and child possesses one magical power and some are transformed into other creatures. The people of Athymar don¿t know what caused the Change but Tarian is determined to find a way to reverse the effects of it on his wife Lowri who was transformed into a flying demon like creature. He and his son Phelan travel to the city of Pendara in the hopes of finding a wizard who can transform Lowri back into the woman he loves instead of the creature who hates him.----------------------- In Pendara, Tarian applies his newfound healing powers to the injuries of the dying queen. He, Phelan, and warrior woman Danya of the city watch are invited into the castle by the wizard Cyn. There they meet with the priestess Saeth who was attending the queen and the Esylken warrior Ashur Dal. The Esylken wants Tarian to come to his village in Greenmark Forest to meet with the Timeless Ones, the spirits of the Esylken dead. They asked Ashur specifically to bring him and the queen wants the entire group to go to Hearts Wound to find out what happened in the last battle between Light and Darkness. On their way to the Esylken village, they make a brief detour to a city besieged by demons to kill them and close the rip between the realms. When they finally reach Vallanora, Tarian meets with the Timeless Ones who send his group on a quest in which he is to play a major role in the world¿s salvation or destruction. --------------------- GODFIRE BOOK 1: THE ORCHARD OF DREAMS is a fantastic quest fantasy filled with lots of action and magical battles. The group embarking on the quest consists of fully developed characters with distinct personalities. Readers will like all of them for different reasons but the focal point of Tim Waggoner¿s terrific fantasy is Tarian who through no fault of his own is granted a great power and an even greater responsibility.-------------------- Harriet Klausner
