From the Back Cover
will rest in the hands of the beasts...
a Westlander Prophecy
When the evil Sage of Dagorath threatens the lands of Dagor, it seems that the time of the prophecy has arrived. To combat the evil of the Sage, the King must call upon a legend.
The Clans of the Free People have been aroused. They were born in a time when desperation shadowed the world. They lived through a lifetime of chaos and emerged victoriously. Their desire to be left alone was singular and their passion for peace unanimous.
Their savagery to obtain what they wanted was legendary.
If the lands were to survive the onslaught, they would have to become the immovable object that stood before the unstoppable force.
Their stories are filled with paralleling tales of love and hatred, truth and lies, honor and disgrace...
all cumulating in the final clash between good and evil.
But can either be fully defined and live by that definition?

I must admit, I have not read many books in this genre and this was an excellent one to read! I found it difficult to put down and it was far more interesting than I had imagined.
This book was an engaging read from the beginning. It opens up to Prince Veern running for his life being chased by Orcs. As he continues on his journey he is taken captive and then rescued by the very clan he was looking for. Hellion's clan and the leader of the free people.
After telling Hellion on why his father sent him, he did not waste any time reaching out to other ally clans and then taking off to aide the King in protecting the city of Bandashar.
They end up splitting into two groups and each caravan has their own unique adventures along the way. They have encounters with the vampire clan, orcs and other surprises that the evil sorceress has in store for them.
The story was well developed and character development was portrayed in a realistic and thoughtful manner. I really enjoyed the progression of relationships throughout the story.
The adventure was action packed and kept me turning the page. It was difficult to put down because I just had to see what happened! I felt the integration of allies and enemies was quite believable and intriguing.
The fighting scenes were elaborate and well designed. There were a few twists that I didn't even see coming. The different clans of people were interesting to get to know and I look forward to reading more about Prince Veern, Hellion and the Free People.
This was an enjoyable read as the story and character progression was great. I cheered for Hellion and his family when they struggled against the forces of evil and felt for them when their history is told to Veern.
I felt the bigotry between the Free People and the humans they interacted with could’ve been done in a deeper fashion than a pair simply falling in love right after showing their surprise and reluctance to interact or men accepting the differences after being told to. It seemed like a lost opportunity to add more grit and realism to the story, but it didn’t take away from my overall enjoyment of the story. I can’t wait to read the next installment.
