Review of ‘Thieves & Wizards’

Posted on Updated on

The Forlorn Dagger, forged from the stuff of stars, is the only weapon that can kill wizards. It’s been missing for centuries until it shows up in a mysterious collector’s library. Then, Stin, a cunning thief, steals it—unaware of its powers. Stin’s path then crosses with a group of wizards, young princesses training for their destiny, and a young prince out to reclaim his stolen throne. Under the leadership of the wizard, Greystone, Trant, the prince, and a young princess training to become a war maiden, go head to head with Darkstone, a rogue wizard bent on conquest.

Thieves and Wizards by Jaxon Reed is an epic fantasy that spans characters, kingdoms, and times as smoothly as a well-cast spell. Unlike toys that are ‘batteries not included,’ this story has a bit of everything; intrigue, skullduggery, humor, romance, and battle scenes that make the ‘Star Wars’ fight against the Death Star seem mild by comparison.

You don’t have to be a fan of the fantasy genre to enjoy this story; you just have to like a well-told tale.

I received an advanced review copy of this book.

I give it four stars.
