HE WHO SEEKS POWER, SEEKS DESTRUCTION Over 1000 years ago, nearly all the ancient wizards were destroyed after the Wizard Wars. However, the one who started the War still remains, having worked his will in secret. If he can find the last Dragonwand, he will regain his powers as the dark dragon. Unaware of the Dragonwand or the betrayer, sixteen-year-old Markus is looking for a wizard who will give him a letter of recommendation for the College of Wizardry. During his journey, he stumbles upon Tolen the Wise, who sends Markus on a quest to end the darkness and find the Dragonwand before it gets into the wrong hands. As Markus discovers growing powers and makes allies, will he find what he needs to complete Tolen’s task, or will the ancient, dark wizard uncover the Dragonwand and forever change the fate of the land of Gallenor?
I have just completed reading ‘The Legacy of Dragonwand: Book 1’ by Daniel Peyton. I was fortunate enough to interview Daniel for the Youtube Channel I co-host, and was given a free ebook copy of the book, and I wanted to make a start on it. And boy am I glad that I did! The book is fast paced, exciting and every chapter leaves you wanting more. The characters have been developed well and there are great interactions between them. The villains have been written in a way that at times you feel sorry for them, but know you must not because they are, after all, trying to defeat the protagonist. Daniel has planned this as a trilogy and I am excited to read the next instalments. You can find the book on Amazon to download. A great fast paced read that can be loved by people of all ages, especially if you are into the YA fantasy fiction genre.
