When I heard that Brandon (Oxhorn) had written a book, I knew I had to pick it up, knowing his work already, with his wonderful, witty writing and great sense of humor and adventure. The best thing about this book is that it got me invested in the characters and what happens to them; Brandon does a fantastic job of setting up the characters perfectly, and giving them plenty of humanity, making them funny when it's appropriate and somber when they have to be. The plot is wonderfully fun, it's set in a rich and mystical fantasy world with its own entire lore and backstories to compliment it, and this book had me invested in it the whole way through. May Brandon M. Dennis write many more books, for I want to read much, much more! Can't wait to see more! (By the way, pick up this book now).

Format: Paperback
This is a great fantasy tale for all readers. In a world where 80% of fantasy writing is really similar to each other, this is a great change of pace. Brandon Dennis (or Oxhorn as some of us know him) has crafted a great read for his first written work. The world is enthralling. I would like to see the world expanded upon. I was under the impression early on that the world is really similar to ours and this was a simple sailor's tale. I was quickly proven wrong and I was not disappointed.

While a few characters are two-dimensional, most are unique. While characters such as Cloran, Richards, and Greaves are easy to distinguish, I would like to see the other sailors developed more. The fantastical characters are really well done and really give the book a mystical feeling.

In conclusion, the world is amazing, and the characters are great. What appears to be a simple sailor's tale turns into a sprawling adventure in a new fantasy world. Once again I would like to see the lore of the world expanded on. The book is a great read for anyone looking for a break from traditional fantasy.

Thanks, Oxhorn!

After reading this book, I can successfully say that Brandon (or Oxhorn) is a fantastic writer! I loved every bit of it. The characters, the monsters, everything made me love this book. And that cliffhanger.... I wanted to punch a wall because it left me hanging off such a steep edge. I really enjoyed reading this novel and I dearly hope you make a sequel. "The Tale of Cloran Hastings: New Land," or something to that nature.

Thank you for such an epic book,
A satisfied Oxhorn fan

Strap up, as you would at Disneyworld. Then let go. The world of Cloran Hastings is Splash Mountain meets Haunted House in the Pirates of Penzance. Fun, fun-ny, surreal... Poor Adaire!

Ever since I started watching Brandon's movies I have wanted to get this book, if you enjoy his movies then you will love this book. It has got to be up there with the likes of George R.R Martin's "Game of Thrones/Song of Ice and Fire" books. if you have any doubts about buying the book, just check out his movies and you will fall in love with this style and sense of class. Brandon does a magnificent job and keeping you interested the whole book making it almost impossible to put it down and leaves you wishing for more when you do. I cannot even begin to explain how much i loved this book. 10/10
