Publisher Description

Strange and legendary Dremlock Kingdom is facing destruction from both within and beyond its stone walls in the form of goblins--creatures spawned by evil that come in all shapes and sizes--and the Deep Shadow, a hungry and spreading force of dark sorcery that infects people with madness.

To save their kingdom, the knights recruit a lonely and isolated boy named Lannon who lives in a wooded valley with his crazy father, who bears a dark illness of the soul, and his foul-tempered mother. Lannon is sought out because he possesses a rare power called the Eye of Divinity. The knights need Lannon's gift to see through the fog of evil that shrouds Dremlock Kingdom and give them the advantage they need to turn the tables on their ancient foe.

With the help of his friends, Lannon tries desperately to unlock the Eye of Divinity in time to save Dremlock Kingdom from otherwise certain doom. With the Deep Shadow creeping around the kingdom and infecting hearts and minds, Lannon isn't sure if anyone in Dremlock can even be trusted. Lannon finds himself, and his fellow squires, caught in a web of mystery and magic in a kingdom where anything can happen.

Classic Fantasy Story

Well written and interesting story, if a little basic. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel of fantasy but it doesn’t need to.

Overall it’s a story worth reading.

Clumsily written story

What a frustrating experience it was reading this book. The author managed to take what had the potential to be a great plot and do everything he could to make the story virtually unreadable. I spent most of the story cursing the protagonist who merrily moved from one clumsily executed plot device to another while exhibiting no redeeming virtues whatsoever. The author spent most of his time trying to convince the reader that you too can achieve great things by being disobedient, ignoring common sense, succumbing to cowardice, forsaking the advise of those wiser and more experienced than you, misplacing your loyalty, and by continuing to follow selfish friends that repeatedly demonstrate their inability to make good choices. What kind of protagonist is this? What kind of message is this?

There is no character development, there is little plot development, and you wind up having little to no respect for any of the main characters by the end of the story (despite the accolades heaped upon them by the apparently blind leaders of the Knights). Most of the means whereby the "heroes" advance through the story are through shear dumb luck, deus ex machina and by the hands of those "wiser" characters that soon after the protagonist and his cohorts busily ignore once again. There is no drive left at the end of the story to pick up the next book, because, frankly, one is left with no desire to continue the painful and disappointing experience.

The most frustrating aspect to this experience is that this story could have been so much more; however struggling through the many fatal flaws, including the poor writing style and story management of the author, simply makes this a disappointing read. The only audience that should spend time with this story are those looking for examples of how not to write a story; which examples abound throughout this novel.
