i have just read this book and very much enjoyed it, well done Colin.
Most enjoyable. It is exactly as the blurb describes. I look forward to reading the next novel by Colin Hollis.
Thank you for taking an interest in the land of Tarodash. I hope you find the time and inclination to read the story here. If you do, you will immerse yourself in an enticing world, follow for a while those who inhabit that land, and join them in their increasingly desperate struggles and battles against an ancient and terrifying invading enemy. The gentle and honorable folk of Tarodash are armed not so much with weapons, but with courage, resolution, sacrifice and love. And they have a little help from a magic craft-enhancing force which resides in the rock strata of the land.
I wanted a book which combined lyrical writing with clarity of narrative and well-paced storytelling, in a totally believable land, peopled with folk we can admire and relate to. I hope I have succeeded.
