Things get messy. There are Wizards who fight and the risk of The Great Old One waking up and it's not an outcome anyone wants.
I liked first few pages of the book and some of ideas. On the other hand, after fast intro the story looses its momentum and drags until it reaches around 38 % of ebook version. There's quite a lot of info dumping and unncesessary descriptions of Aelzandar's dull daily routines. While the pacing improves later the story didn't manage to engage me. As the book is short, I finished it. I'm not impressed though. I believe such a short book should offer more drama and tension but, s usually, it's subjective.
I'd recommend this if you like more traditional fantasy/high fantasy.
