Overview

His father killed in war before he was three, his mother unexpectedly dying when he was eight, Jecosan Tarres is young and poor, yet he has something not many men have: a faithful heart, a strong spirit, and the knowledge of truth taught to him by his mother and the priest Shaledan. Alone for a year, but later befriended by a blacksmith, Dalian, he has already beaten the odds of being destitute and forgotten, but clearly something or someone is at work in his life. With his faithful dog Gart, and his friend Dalian, he sets out on a life defining journey after a messenger visits him with a commission to go to Kanavar, the ancient capital of Meoria, where he is to enter the king's service and somehow prevent the war that is about to break out in his country. There are powerful forces interested in his journey, both to fail and succeed. Join young Jecosan as he struggles along, escaping sudden traps, facing prison and captivity, fighting pain and despair, losing and making friends.

    Captivating, Funny,Adventurous

    I really Enjoyed reading this book. It was very intriguing and had lots of ups and downs in this novel. Very well balanced and lots of twists and turns in the story. The boy, Jesco is easy to like and come to love his character. This book also had some really funny-humorous spots that will make you laugh.

    The Bad:
    I am not into elves and all those mythical creatures types
    I kept reading to see how this book would go, because I really liked the story lines and plot that was going on when not focused on the elgurs. The elgurs is like a guardian angel who protects a boy on his journey. It talks a lot about this creature, but nothing to drastic if you believe in angels anyway. I presumed the book as the boy with a guardian angel and badically thats what an elgur is in the novel.
    I believe that book 2 may get into the mythical powers to heavily for me to read, but i love the main story plot in this book.
