Elliott Bakerabout this book: "This book was amazing! I'm traditionally into science fiction novels, but decided to take a step in a different direction. I was not disappointed! From the character development, to the overarching storyline, to the action "scenes", this book had me completely enthralled!"
Loved it! This novel has it all. A caveat: this is not my usual genre, but I love to read new award winning debut novels from authors, and this book was well worth me braving a new genre. The author skillfully crafted an engaging cast of characters, Rene, a young swashbuckling sword master is the protagonist, and is supported by a rich ensemble of characters, including bright competent woman, as well as a dark and worthy adversary. I especially loved Rene's flashbacks of lessons, steeped with meaning, from his sword master teacher, reminiscent of the best Kung Fu tales. Another treat was the author's careful attention to historical detail, which drew me into a fascinating time and place, which I knew little about, and now crave to know more of. And there's an even bigger story. A story that has been playing out for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years. A story where Rene must discover his destiny, his role in history, and quickly, if he's to survive and protect the ones he loves.
René Gilbert's destiny glints from the blade of a rapier. To protect those he loves, he must regain the power and knowledge of an ancient lifetime.
