Genre: Fantasy

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review and I have to say, WOW. This is a fantasy that begins in the 1900s in Strasbourg, on the border between France and Germany. We get a little background first, just a sweet treat, and then we meet our main protagonist, a boy named Daine.

The author brings the reader along, from Daine's birth on, chronicling his life as a happy boy with simple, humble, loving parents and an adopted grandfather, onward through the lessons he learns into his adulthood. I don't want to say much more (Druids! Fae! Tragedy!), as it really would be giving too much away, I feel, but this was a magical and tragic tale that doesn't complete with the end of the book. It looks like a sequel will be had, and it needs it! I don't believe we're done with Daine yet!

This book truly does deserve every point of its 5 stars.

If you'd like to purchase your own copy, and you do, visit amazon or the author's webpage, and enjoy!
