Description

Ever wonder where all the honourable heroes of pure heart and selfless intentions went? You'll find them here, in the enchanting land of Doronloch, where the supernatural is an everyday thing and mythological creatures come alive in the vibrant setting of their world. Punny and insightful, this novel is a must-read for every serious fantasy enthusiast - and some of the more playful ones, too. T.W.O.K. is replete with epic detail, absorbing realism, and refreshing genuinity, carrying the reader along through 757 pages of pure delight and beyond - the real neverending story! Raised on a farmstead situated a few miles outside the town of Kharathad, Dogalas was a young man solid and true, just like all Kharathidian men were brought up to be. It was a common practice that lads between sixteen and eighteen springs of age would go to train under the wise Wizard of the Tower, in order to become semizards; men who would travel the world for a year on their Journey, helping others and gaining fame through use of their magical abilities - until they would gain the zardor and become true wizards, to settle in a town of their own and train new semizards in their place. Dogalas, forever curious as to the detailed workings of magic, intended to follow in their footsteps and find out for himself what it meant to be a semizard. Little did he know the perils that awaited him on his path, the secrets that abounded in his own past...and the hidden destiny of his future. Enter a world of mystery and magic, replete with incredible creatures (from gnomes to dragons and beyond), enchanting characters, diverse locations, and unlock the door to the magic within with The Wizard of Kharathad - the book that keeps on living.
