Ignorant of the world beyond the walls of Karta, the capital of Kraydenia, Gordon faces a Rite of Passage that will reward him with the privilege of being regarded as a man. It has always been a harrowing ordeal, but never like this…
His Rite leads him away from his home and quickly unravels as Anukke the sorcerer plans to resurrect a powerful force to steal its power and rule the world through fear and death. But he didn’t realise just how strong this force really is; Ortega Bloodbane had been imprisoned for a thousand years for a reason.
Gordon fights for much more than just his own cause as the fate of the world rests in his hands and leads to a mystical journey fraught with danger. Chaos will reign supreme for eternity if he fails.
Was he really expected to save the world? How was he supposed to fight the magic of this powerful sorcerer?
Could he truly count on his new companions? A wolf Death himself would steer clear of and an obscenely large hammer wielding madman shrouded in mystery with a temper to boot.
Outclassed and outnumbered, the unlikely band of heroes find an ally that could tip the scales. But can they can trust him?
If you are looking for escapism, fantasy and an easy read, then I recommend this book. A somewhat mix between Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. Entertaining especially for the younger audience.

If you enjoy fantasy that is in the writing style of David Gemmell you would enjoy this book as well. It is a great venturesome story and the heroic characters bring this tale even more to live. This book is a quick, entertaining and enjoyable read and it also brings the reader to experience sadness, laughter and apprehension. I can't wait for other novels by Marius H. Visser.
