Opening your coat closet and unexpectedly discovering a portal into another world can be a slightly jarring experience.
Spotting a dragon staring back at you through said portal should have sent any sane person running for the hills.
Good thing John was still a bit hung over.
Realizing that the dragon didn’t harbour any nefarious designs, John decided that a change of scenery was in order, and opted for a vacation to the exotic city of Iathera.
Befriending an enigmatic green-skinned woman and a wizard with a penchant for bathrobes, his impromptu holiday is cut short by news of an unprovoked attack on an allied nation.
Having trekked across an entire ocean to wage war, the nation of Kierd had laid siege to the Nebar Cluster for reasons unknown. With Kierd wielding devastating weapons never before seen in that world, the surrounding region is rapidly thrown into unrest.
Still not exactly sure if there was a reason that he was brought here, he finds that his unique insights into this strange new world could be the key into tipping the conflict back in the Cluster’s favour.
I absolutely loved this book and even the one after, although there are a few spelling mistakes, and keeping up with the characters is rather difficult. Otherwise it was an absolutely wonderful book and I can't wait till the third comes out.
