Product Description

Product Description

The Saga of Lyn – The Reawakening is a compelling tale of a simple man’s adventures as he seeks justice for the murder of his wife and daughter, only to find that his entire world is threatened.

When a mysterious visitor destroys jovial Tegain Hostler’s tavern, killing his beloved wife and daughter, Tegain is devastated. Not knowing how to pick up the pieces of his shattered life, he turns to his friend, the trader Karl Dunmire, who comes upon the wreckage the following morning. Karl, a former Marshal in the Royal Wayman Dragoons, advises him to travel to the next-largest town to seek legal assistance in tracking down and bringing to justice the murderous villain. Karl agrees to accompany Tegain on this trek.
Ever the trader, Karl sells Tegain a battered and rusty old sword that he swears will clean up to a fine instrument of protection. Little does he realize that the sword is unusual in a variety of ways. During a nighttime attack by a Grimble, a creature thought to exist only in the frightened imaginations of children, Tegain is amazed to find that the sword can cleave the beasts with a single blow.

As the two friends continue along their way, they find that other villages are being plagued by mythical beasts, as well, and when Tegain refuses to give up his sword in one such village, Folsum, he is forced to flee while Karl is imprisoned. While Tegain seeks to discover the cause of this mayhem, Karl quietly befriends and secretly begins training his captors.

His training and Tegain’s courage, along with new friendships, will soon be required as they once again join forces to face down demons from their people’s past that now threaten their future.

Carter has peopled a richly-drawn pseudo-medieval world with believable, well-fleshed characters. This sweeping tale proceeds at a rapid pace, and initially seemingly random details are later revealed to have great significance. This is a masterfully handled piece of sci-fi/fantasy literature, well worth the reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Fantasy 18 Nov. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very unlikely hero, lots of strange monsters, and plenty of action - but a moving and engaging tale. If fantasy is your thing, I think you will love this book - I certainly did - and I look forward to the sequel.

Only gripe it that I see the price is currently gone up to £3.23(GBP) which is a bit steep for an unknown author. If you see it cheaper then definitely worth a read!

A great Science Fiction book that quickly grabbed my attention! Aric's imagination in creating the characters of his book made them believable and kept me engaged. I could easily feel the emotion of Tegain and Lyn as they continue on their journey. Absolutely loved the book and couldn't stop reading until I finished! Looking forward to see what happens next.

By Sammi Johnson - Published on
Captivating read. From start to finish I was enthralled! Love the grasp of early century time along side science fiction. Loved the characters & their personality ' s! I can not wait to see what adventures come their way. I was wrapped up in every emotion that they experienced. Great Job, Aric! This would make an amazing movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars It worths your time 29 Aug. 2014
By Nga Nguyen - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was absolutely drawn into the book as soon as I started.
The story was fascinating. I specificly like this sentence " When all seems lost, it is sometimes then that you will find the key to all that is." Those creative pictures at the begining of each chapters are awesome. They demonstrate the content of the chapters.
You should pick this one up and read if you want a story that you haven't heard yet. I guarantee you will not be disappoimted.
