The White Tree review
In The White Tree Edward Robertson has created a world with a rich mythological background that has led to the worship of Arawn being outlawed. He brings Dante a 16 year old boy on an adventure that crosses thousands of miles in the search for knowledge after finding a book about the forbidden God. While reading the book Dante begins to discover that he can use "nether" for powerful magic. After someone tries to kill Dante to get this book he decides to hire a bodyguard, but since he does not have much money he ends up hiring Blays Buckler, a kid about his age whose father taught him some weapons skill.
As their adventure progresses both of them become much more effective fighters and eventually form a strong friendship. This book is a strong adventure filled with characters that don't fit the normal mold in fantasy. Dante and Blays are both willing to do what they have to do to achieve their goals regardless of the legality of their actions.
For .99 this book is a great read and I will check out any sequels for sure.
I have an interview lined up with Ed so check back for more news on upcoming projects.
