Description

In this Christian fantasy, one young wizard with a hunger for wisdom and some dangerous secrets finds himself pitted against another ready to reach for power with the darkest forces possible. Wizards have never in the history of Coventree, renounced Wizardry. But Blayn Goodwin finds himself growing detached from the practice of Wizardry, even as he rises through the ranks to become the youngest member of the Supreme Council. He has lost interest in the usual gods in favor of a god without a name, not that he makes that fact public. Edgar Savile has his own traitorous secrets and kidnaps Blayn's eldest son to prevent Blayn from probing into them. Meanwhile the Supreme Wizard, suspicious of Edgar, sends Blayn to retrieve an ancient book from the Other World, hoping it will arm them against Edgar's treachery. What Blayn finds is not what anyone expects, and threatens to tear Coventree's fraying system apart at the seams. "An intriguing and sometimes chilling tale of faith lost and rediscovered, Disenchanted is part fairy tale, part dystopia, part alternate history. An original debut from a promising new author." - Rachel Starr Thomson, author of The Seventh World Trilogy, The Oneness Cycle, and other books. www.rachelstarrthomson.com "An engaging and intelligent debut novel about faith and transformation, whose thoughtful message is contained in an exciting story featuring vivid characters and original worldbuilding. A very satisfying read!" -Victoria Strauss, author of The Burning Landshow more
