Oh, how wonderful it is to have a new found favorite…and for me, this is it! Whether you’re a fan of fantasy or magical realism in general, or a fan of The Adventurers Guild specifically, this book is for you. With a likeable main character, this is a beautifully written adventure about sword fighting, libraries and evil books! Great for guys and girls.
