The spell of a long dead king throws Jaron, a librarian's apprentice, into a war between kings and Jaron must trade his books for blades when Mavius, with his knights behind him, returns from beyond the grave to reclaim his throne.
Another debut fantasy novel and another great read on our list. A great adventure of epic proportions, with epic battles and great characters. Solid writing and a great story:“Thrown into danger and carried along by events outside of his control, Jaron discovered that his whole life was only a disguise. His friends weren’t who he thought they were, and his father whom he thought was dead, wasn’t. In a war of kings, he might be the final piece of a plan that started centuries ago.”
