"Author Mike Shelton has done a great job in creating characters that his readers will enjoy, connect with,and even care about. His world creation abilities are second to none,and his ability to describe surroundings is so vivid and great that readers will feel as if they can simply slip through the pages and into Darius' world.
Any reader, young adult or not, who enjoys a great work of fantasy with an extremely adventurous story line should absolutely read this book. I highly recommend it, and am very much looking forward to reading the next in the series from the talented Mike Shelton as soon as possible!" - Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite5 Stars:
"In a combination of medieval gallantry and fairy tale fantasy, Shelton weaves a delicious tale reminiscent ofRobin Hood or the Knights of the Round Table. The author's command ofthe English language draws the reader into a vividly described setting." - Lisa McComb for Reader's Favorite
"An exciting and character-rich young adult fantasy novel. Author Mike Shelton is expert at world building: both the world the characters inhabit, and their inner world as well. Darius and his friends are true-to-life characters who will keep you turning the pages. This is a fun and well-thought-out introduction to this series. Fans of a certain teenage wizard, or fantasy fiction in general, will find a lot to like here." Self-Publishing Review
