Power is not for the weak or faint-hearted.
If Frank, Cas, Gabby and Anya want to find the next two guardians of the Simbrian and keep them safe, they need to journey across the dangerous borderlands and into the dark and shadowy world of Kzarlac, sworn enemy of Byeland.
Ruled by the fearsome Etamin Dahke, Kzarlac is no place for four naïve teenagers. Keen wits and a large helping of luck are no guarantee they will succeed and return safely.
Driven by their desire to protect the delicate peace that has existed since the time of Kester, their quest is about to take a deadly turn, and the exposure of an unconceivable secret may make Frank regret ever having started.
Frank Penny & The Last Stag by Jeremy Elson is an exciting start to a series I’m looking forward to continuing. This book is right up my alley. Adventure, fantasy, danger…all packed into an excellent paced book. I read late into the night and the only reason I stopped was because sometimes I can’t stay up any later!
I really enjoyed the cast of characters. The four teenagers: Frank, Cas, Gabby, and Anya are definitely brave, venturing into Kzarlac. Not a place I’d be brave enough to go! I liked the realistic sense that they are teens, and they get lucky, but they didn’t really know what they were getting themselves into.
Overall, this was a great book. I really enjoyed it and would suggest giving it a read!
