“Marcus still hasn’t mastered his powers, he’s not the suave and in control wizard he would like to be. Now poor Marcus is now contending with courting and try as he may, is fumbling around in the dark, trying to win his lady’s favor. How long will Raina wait for his full attention? Is she being too demanding? Marcus has been warned that he must find and keep the Staff of Herding, a powerful magical tool for its owner out of the hands of three dark sorcerers. But is it too late?

A powerful sword, that can only be handled by the pure of soul has become a quest for Princess Alexa as she sets off on a deadly quest to retrieve this sword and bring it home as a gift.

Controlled chaos, mystical creatures, fairytale creatures, magical beings and baby dragons in danger, get ready to enter a world like no other, where your sense of smell, sight and sound will be taxed to the max within your mind. Mr. Gallant does an excellent job molding his characters without slowing the story, I Could mentally see each character in my mind, picture each scene and laugh at some of the unexpected events that occur. Not your typical fantasy, but a fascinating read that sometimes tips you a little off center with its rough charm, A. J. Gallant has done his job, again! I was entertained, taken to another word, I laughed, I was mesmerized, I journeyed near and far with a cast of quirky, brave and sometimes gross characters that almost started to feel like friends. Gotta love baby dragons! A unique series that doesn’t’ quite fit the mold one would expect and I have loved every book for that reason.”
