Hello and Welcome to my stop on the tour! I get the privilege to review The Written.
So let’s get started.
A spellbook has gone missing from the libraries of Arfell – a very old and extremely powerful spellbook from the time of dark elves and demons. Five scholars are dead, the magick council is running out of time and options, and the Arka is once again on the brink of war with the Siren dragon-riders.
It falls to Farden the Written mage to keep the world from falling into chaos. Entangled in a web of lies and politics, Farden must recover the spellbook before an ancient enemy rises, even if it takes journeying halfway across icy Emaneska and back.
In his fight for answers, Farden will unearth a secret that not only shakes the foundations of his world, but threaten the entire future of Emaneska. Sorcery, death, drugs and the deepest of betrayals await.
Welcome to Emaneska.
I am a huge fan of dragon books as well as magic users. This book combines the two in a way that is different than many books I have read as of late. I enjoyed the fact that the linking of the dragon/rider has some side affects. I also really liked the different kind of magic that was used.
I only wish there was more background and sides of magic shown.
