-A Tale From Kraydenia Second Edition
Ignorant of the world beyond the walls of Karta, the capital of Kraydenia, young 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.
Stranded far from his homeworld, Baldrake, the fierce general of the Gar hounds, is shunned from the pack and stripped of his title by the last remaining wolves of Gar. Now, as evil rears its head in Kraydenia, he fights for their name, their honour, and the right to call this new world their home.
With a deep, hidden, tortured past, Malachai not only fights for the land, but also fights the turmoil raging inside him—his warhammer no longer a shiny ornament of obscurity hanging on the wall, but blood-stained and strapped to his back once more.
The companions will have to fight for much more than just Gordon’s cause, as the fate of the world rests in their hands and leads to a mystical journey fraught with danger.
Outclassed and outnumbered, the unlikely band of heroes find an ally who could tip the scales to fight the magic of a powerful sorcerer and the evil forces he commands. But can they trust them?
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.
