In my post yesterday, I gave you an excerpt of Linvin arguing with the noblemen in the country of Valia. I was particularly proud of the scene. Linvin starts out as a pure military man. When he returns to Sartan to run the family merchant empire he realizes that he must change in order to be successful. He must deal with merchants, bankers, accountants, lawyers, and even a king who thinks a war is a dispute between rival companies. Linvin successfully puts his violent past behind him and concentrates on business. He picks it up quickly and soon has the company running better than ever. At last the point of the story appears and he must seek the Red Sapphire. The genius of his military background and the patience learned in business will be put to the test on the quest. He’s a multidimensional character. Linvin makes his mistakes and has errors in judgement but overall learns from them. By the first book’s conclusion he has conqurred his inner demons and has his party firmly under his command. He grows a long way throughout the book and leaves you wanting more.
Fantasy fiction is my passion. This series embodies my love for a good story and action. You will find it to be many things, but not boring! Read what you love and love what you read...
