I especially enjoy reading fantasy books; I have read many, but I have to say that this one stands out of the crowd. This fast-paced book will take you on a fantastic journey of three strangers looking for a Warlock who lives in far North. You will get hooked up from the first page and the story will keep you interested and entertained until the end. This book has all a masterpiece should have: great and clean writing, the fascinating settings, original story and very, very enjoyable characters. This author is utterly talented and I hope to read more books from him in the future! --Amazon.com Reviewer
Through this fascinating fantasy runs a motif of knots and knot-tying. It's a fitting metaphor for life and death and the four elements, earth, wind, fire and water. A fearless mercenary and a drunken landowner's son -- a sort of chosen one -- set out on a quest to learn the deeper secrets of magic from a warlock who dwells in the far north. Along the way they meet all manner of creatures, magic and mortal, and adventures. The book is elegantly written und carefully edited. With his slightly baroque prose, Martin Gibbs succeeds in creating another world while preserving very tangible connections to our own world. This book is ideal for an escape into a landscape of danger and adventure. --Amazon.com Reviewer
About the Author
I am a big fan of Robert Jordan, George RR Martin, and R. Scott Bakker. I also enjoy Ellery Queen mysteries and books about Arctic survival. I'm an avid cross-country skier, mountain biker, poet, cook, and I know three chords on the guitar. Active projects include A Drunkard's Journey (Dead Spaces is coming out this spring!), an attempt at a 1930's mystery, a Christian-based piece of historical fiction, and a smattering of short stories.
