Unique talent always attracts attention…

In a world where magic is outlawed, ability with a sword is prized above all else. For Soren this means the chance to live out his dreams.

Plucked from a life of privation, he is given a coveted place at Ostenheim’s Academy of Swordsmanship, an opportunity beyond belief.

Opportunity is not always what it seems however, and gifts rarely come without conditions. Soren becomes an unwitting pawn in a game of intrigue and treachery that could cost him not just his dreams, but also his life.

Soren lives on the streets and dreams of spending his days swordfighting. When his dreams may turn reality after a wealthy supporter offers him the chance to go to the Ostenheim’s Academy of Swordmanship, Soren is overjoyed. But this chance may be a curse in disguise as he becomes an unwilling pawn in a game of intrigue he barely knows the rules of.

High fantasy at its best, with epic swordfighting scenes, a cast of enjoyable, interesting characters and a lot suspense. If you’re a fan of the swashbuckling fantasy type of book, where action scenes are mixed with intrigue and the pace is relentless, then you’ll love this one.
