Product Description

Product Description

They're misfits... but they're the only heroes around.

From the author of Song of Dragons comes Misfit Heroes -- a fantasy series about creepy monsters, underdog heroes, and epic adventure. For all ages.

BOOK ONE: EYE OF THE WIZARD

Shadows prowl the night. A dark warlock musters power. Evil lurks in every corner. The world needs heroes. What it gets... is a few misfits.

A couple failed squires. A jinxed wizard. A banished spirit of the forest. A childlike demon and her teddy bear. They are outcasts, failures, oddballs.  They might just save the world.


Wand of the Witch (Misfit Heroes, Book 2) -- now available!

More About the Author

Daniel Arenson is a bestselling author of epic fantasy.

Four of his trilogies--Dawn of Dragons, Song of Dragons, Dragonlore, and The Dragon War--are set in Requiem, a world where humans can turn into dragons. He's also the author of Moth, a series about a world torn in two--its one half always in sunlight, the other always dark. Five of Daniel's books have hit Amazon's overall Top 100 bestsellers list; one has hit the Top 20. In total, his books have sold nearly 400,000 copies.

Raised on Dungeons & Dragons, The Lord of the Rings, and scratchy Star Wars VHS tapes, Daniel still consumes--and tries to contribute to--geek culture.

Arenson starts the story by introducing what might be his best fantasy-creation to date: the grobbler. 'Pagan gods cursing beautiful, vain women, twisting and wilting their left halves?' They were terrifying to imagine, yet spoke to me very strongly. By being half wilted, half beautiful, they formed a metaphor for modern day society, which is obsessed with youth and beauty, yet at times twisted and dark. In all his books, Arenson has always showed a talent for creating yet he topped himself in this book. A multitude of new creatures appear, all of which seem to have their own detailed background. Therefore I was happy to find a character that is slightly reminiscent of those in Arenson's 'Flaming Dove': Romy, a demon.

Romy is a delightful character, perhaps the best in the book. As a fearsome-looking demon she scares everyone who sees her, yet her childish and immature character provokes quite a lot of hilarious situations. Put her together with a brutish but nice Scruff, the warlock who conjured her up to Earth, 15-year old Jamie who loves to wield her sword at everything and the charming Webcob who was expelled by her spiderling-clan for her speaking impediment. Together they form the Misfits, the Bullies for Buck, who are desperately trying to survive after being kicked out of their respective groups. The Thistle siblings, Jamie, Scruff and Neev, are all still haunted by the death of their parents, especially when their murdered seems to be chasing them.

Reading this book I felt delightfully nostalgic. I always loved stories about travelling knights, slaying monsters, simply being heroic. That is what I loved about stories about Knights and 'Eye of the Wizard' brought back those feelings brilliantly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual but addictive 9 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It took a while to get into but once in it was a very good read. A weird mismatch of characters that seem to amble along from one chaos to another, but as the reader I had to read on to find out what became of them.
I recommend it as a good lighthearted way to pass the time.

I really enjoyed this story and the fact that it is told in three books great altogether but just as fantastic on there own, Daniel's detailed description is outstanding and the touch of humor is a brilliant touch

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad 16 Sep 2013

I obviously obviously hadn't read the story line so wasn't until I was in the book I realised it was a bit of a jokey one....

3.0 out of 5 stars Eye of the Wizard (Book 1) 18 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Misfit Heroes Book 1 does not captivate it's audience as in Daniel Arenson's novels in the DagonLore series. I have also purcchased Misfit Heroes Book 2 thinking Book 1 was a one off and my exxpections to high after reading the DragonLore Series however this was not the caes and I found Book 2 as poorly written as Book 1.

3.0 out of 5 stars Style too simplistic 27 May 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot and characters have potential but the style was too simplistic for me. It did not encourage me to read more.
