After hundreds of years without a true king, the desert land of Nezza is in danger of falling under the rule of a ruthless lord advised by an evil wizard with dark intentions. A desperate cry for help brings Alexander Taylor to this perilous land and sets events in motion that will require him to rescue an old friend from and impenetrable dungeon.
Once in Nezza, Alex meets a new band of adventurers and joins them in their quest to find young Prince Rallian - the man destined to become the rightful king of Nezza. In their path lies a deadly sand monster, a wise and insightful oracle, a massive army of illusions, and a host of lords and leaders ready to fight for - and against - the king of their land. But a dark shadow threatens Alex's every step. And in Nezza, a land where magic is feared and wizards are held in suspicion, Alex will have to be more wise and cunning than ever before if he and his friends are to succeed - or even survive.
Sands of nezza
I thought it was well written nicely spaced action but I thought the characters of the company could be a little fuller the only ones that have any real color is Alex the prince and Skeld
The sands of nazza
A tad bit less suspenseful than the previous books
...although still incredible. I hope book 5 gets more intense during the critical action moments that Alex goes through. Furthermore the character progression is so fantastic, I love this series.
