In this story we meet Otec, he is the son of the clan-chief and he is left behind after his father and brothers go off to fight when another village comes under attack. Things quickly spiral out of control and Otec finds himself in the position of having to be a leader in order to save the people he loves. There is a lot of action in this book, I mean A LOT, it is very exciting! I love the world that this author builds here and even though this isn't a very long book, there is so much story here and it does not feel rushed at all. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys a good clean fantasy book.
