Synopsis

Barely able to use magic, yet having a strange talent for the dangerous arts of sorcery, all Nem Aster wanted was to make his way in the world and repay his debts. But when a skirmish with pirates grows into something more, he finds himself caught up in a series of escalating events that lead him into the mighty Aggadeh Empire, pursued by a murderous pirate hellbent on revenge and possibly connected to the nobility of the empire, joined by two companions of dubious trustworthiness, and a young dragon focused on obtaining the mindstone in Nem's possession.

Aggadeh Chronicles Book 1: Nobody
Average rating
4.5 / 5
August 20th, 2014
As a kid, I would race to the mail box on Wednesdays for the latest edition of The Saturday Evening Post and hopefully find a new Captain Horatio Hornblower story, written, as I remember, by a C,S. Forrester. Nem, in The Aggadeh Chrobicles Book One: Nobody, is reminiscent for me of the young Hornblower. I can hardly wait for succeeding Aggadeh Chronicles books to come out, to experience his new adventures, as Nem and his friends learn and develop, probably as great leaders, in the fascinating wide world of magic, human struggle and wisdom the author has so far created.

The world created by the author is as stunning in its complexity as in its beauty. Magic and sorcery tap the same power in very different ways, which makes for action sequences of nail-biting audacity. The characters have layers to them that are revealed as the story unfolds, making the reader want to know more about them: Why is Gita the way she is? Can Bors truly be trusted? And who is the Oracle? Dragons inhabit this world, but not dragons as you would expect. These are sentient, wise creatures with centuries of custom and laws that govern their interactions with each other and with humans. Do you like pirates? The opening sequence will blow you away as Nem Aster works with the crew of a ship to save it from a pirate enterprise. Those pirates haunt Nem throughout the novel and into book 2...at least that's what's promised! This is an excellent first work by a promising author. He clearly has a team of good readers and editors behind him, which is not common for self-published authors. I'd give it five stars, but as an educator, I like to encourage people to keep pushing for better, and I think this is just the start of a rollicking good tale well-told.
