City Minister, Urin Braymes makes one bad decision. Unfortunately for him, it opens him up to being blackmailed for the rest of his life.
Magister Leel's scheme to recapture his position of power seems to be right on track. But, when he makes a bargain, he finds he has unleashed magic that even a wizard cannot control.
And Jarno Herren? Well he just wants to find out the truth.
The Sword of Wisimir is a fantasy tale of crime, intrigue, life and death. Where ideals are cheap and, in the end, everyone finds out what they'd sacrifice to survive...
Each of the characters in this novel are perfect for their roles. They are all uniquely and fully developed to suit a purpose while becoming very well rounded individuals both in personality and appearance. I appreciate the fact that the characters’ names are very unique but easy to remember. This avoids any confusion as to who did what, where, and with whom, while keeping each individual unique.
This story was very well rounded and has a little bit of everything. There’s some intrigue, lots of action, magic, and some mythical creatures. The author includes all of this while keeping the book light and easy to follow. It was a brilliant read and I can’t wait to continue on this journey with the characters. It did, however, leave me with just one question... How in the world does this end???
