I was given a copy of this book by the author, Graham M. Irwin, in exchange for an honest review. I am so glad that I got the chance to read this first book in the fantasy series and will continue on with the story! The author’s writing style ensnares you into the story and keeps things interesting. I think I may have an inkling of where this story is going and can’t wait to find out if I am on the right track. Slate Ahn is a likeable character and the interesting people he meets along the way got many a chuckle out of me. This book is great for all ages, a few “minor” swear words (mostly pirate talk). I give the book 5 stars.
