So I picked up Karl with a twinge of inborn apprehension, and was therefore even more surprised to find myself quickly immersed. A baby boy is born into the Axilion family that hasn't seen baby boys in ages. Ominous prophecies tell of big changes happening should a boy ever be born into the family. Only the grandmother is aware of the prophecies, and does what she can to keep it a secret to protect him - and herself.
It's quite an unusual story. The plot moves away from any classic path I was sure it would take. I simply couldn't guess what would happen next and that made me want to read on. I'm not even sure the good guys are that good. What a nice change in a genre that seems to follow the same recipe over and over.
"Karl - Birth of Mystery" is the first book in a trilogy and managed to catch the interest of this fantasy skeptic, so I'm definitely looking forward to the next book!
This book is full of well thought out characters and some unexpected twists. It is an excellent introduction to Karl for whom this is merely the beginning. I would thoroughly recommend this book and I look forward to reading the next one.
Having been impressed by the author's other creative projects I thought I'd give this a read.
Great character development with a plot that doesn't always take you where you'd expect but delights you with each new turn.
Now I have to wait with anticipation for the next two although that always gives me the excuse to re-read as each one come out!
