Princes and princesses in love with the wrong ones, or not in love with chosen mates, pretenders for thrones attacking, defenders facing defeat, intense loyalty, betrayal, love, hatred, faith and fears, marriage and death, life in strange and beautifully described lands, winged horses, giant bears, dangerous birds, witches who turn travelers instantly into ice, friends and foes. The story has a bit of everything to keep readers hoping for victories for favorite characters and defeat for nasty ones, but unsure who will win.
Wayfarer, a well-told, compelling tale is Book two in the Faeraven series. The events and characters follow on from Book one, the Dawnsinger fantasy, but Wayfarer can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.
The author’s descriptions, even with strange names for almost everything, depict a strong admiration for nature and bring settings and characters wonderfully alive.
Wayfarer depicts the consequences of wrong choices but the forgiveness, mercy and grace of God to a young King IF he will accept the truth about who can save him.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
