About the Author

Brae Wyckoff was born and raised in San Diego, CA and is working toward a Psychology degree. He has been married to his beautiful wife, Jill, for 19 years, and they have three children; Tommy, Michelle, and Brittany. He has a beautiful grandson named Avery. Brae has been an avid gamer since 1985. His passion for mysterious realms and the supernatural inspired him to write The Orb of Truth, the first in a series of fantasy action adventures. Brae describes The Orb of Truth as a cross between the Lord of the Rings and the Wizard of OZ where you will be swept away into a magical land of Dwarves, Elves, and Halflings.

This is fantasy writing at its best. I can understand why it won so many awards. This is the first book in The Horn King Series. The meek shall inherit and as a result people who are not the most upstanding citizens have found a magical item that has them going on a quest against dark armies and bad people. The book helps you realize that even people with a tarnished past and reputation can be the ones that manage to save the world and do the right thing in certain circumstances. The other books are going on my TBR list. The writing is amazing and I can see why this is a popular book.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Fairies

Well...to be perfectly honest, this is not the kind of book I would pick up at the bookstore and choose to take home. But, after saying that I was very surprised!

Brea Wycyoff captured me (in a bazaar way) with this fantasy with a magical twist. The characters range from Wizards, to Dragons, to Halflings and Dwarfs, and that's only mentioning a few! The book entices you and draws you into it's magical world and I lost myself in there a few times. There are times when you feel the heartache and the losses, and then in your next breath, you are on the edge of your seat lost in the action.

The story as a whole is about two Ordiakains and a Dwarf who must embark on one hell of a journey, along with followers who become friends. My favourite character is Dulgin as he is just like me (I am not embarrassed to say so). He allows his mouth to run off without thinking; he will fight tooth and nail for his family and friend;, he would be a force to reckon with if anything got in his way, and on a fun note...he likes his beer. :) I think because I could relate to him, I found myself rooting for him and that carried me quite pleasantly through the book.

The Orb of Truth is full of action, from the battle scene that was mind blowing, to the magical place, Moonlight Mountain, that just entices you.

Will good overcome evil?
Will Bridazak ordain and Dulgin be triumphant?
Will they find the key to unlock the box?
Will they defeat King Mannaseh and his army?

I would definitely recommend this book, perfect for teenagers and young adults. The creative writing and mind-boggling storyline captures you and takes you on a magical, mystical journey.

I give The Orb of Truth 4 Fairies! Well done Brea Wycyoff...I can't wait for the next book!

I'm still read this book overall this is a full-pack action and humour in the first series which the author said it's a mixed of LOTK and Wizard of Oz.

5.0 out of 5 stars In the Style of R.A. Salvatore 26 Feb. 2015
By Peru Editor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a nice little fantasy romp in the style of the great old Forgotten Realms novels. A troop of disreputable adventurers encounter a magical item that sends them on a quest, and makes them the target of a dark army with a mysterious, demonic leader. The writing is solid, and there are a nice number of references to other fantasy novels throughout. By "references" I mean that there were scenes that evoked a kind of welcome nostalgia as they put in mind scenes from Lord of the Rings or Icewind Dale, while, at the same time, being something new and entertaining.

The book opens with the disreputable halfling Bridazak swindling a wealthy person out of gold for a forged mystical feather. Bridazak manages to also palm a jeweled ring in the process. I always enjoy novels that have scoundrels as their protagonists rather than squeaky clean paladins who never admit to doing wrong (whether those aforementioned paladins are against romping around and inadvertently destroying people's lives is another topic). When Bridazak comes into possession of a magical item, things go south very quickly.

I enjoyed the fact that there is humor sprinkled throughout this work. Nothing sinks a fantasy novel faster than a too serious tone. Fantasy should be fun folks, and Brae Wyckoff crafts a fun tale in a world you'll want to visit. If you're a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, or just want to get away from it all for a while, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun Adventure! 15 April 2013
By Dorothy L. Dootson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While fantasy isn't usually my preferred genre, I have to admit that I'm really glad I got the opportunity to read this book! It was really enjoyable and most times I had a hard time putting it down when it was time to re-enter the real world again. I have only read a few books in this genre and I would say that this one is probably the top of that list.

While some things confused me (I'm chalking it up to not having a good base knowledge of the sci-fi/fantasy world - I don't think watching the Labyrinth numerous times throughout my life counts), it was still easy for me to follow the story and mostly understand what was going on. I enjoyed learning about the different characters and the descriptions of the land were wonderful.

I would recommend this book to anyone, even if it isn't their cup of tea - after all, it wasn't my cup of tea either, and I quite liked it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kitty Muse Book Reviews 31 Dec. 2012
By Kitty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Arise and return to Me what was never lost, only waiting."

Those words transform the fates of two Ordakians, Bridazek and Spilf, thieves and fighters. With their Dwarf "associate", Dulgin, they set off on a quest--to find the source of a mysterious box.

This box literally lands in Bridazek's lap; the culmination of a dream he has had nearly every night of his life. This last had a different ending, though: the words "It is time". He wakes to find the box where nothing had been before, and starts a journey that will take him through mysterious realms and terrifying foes, constantly pursued by the forces of darkness. His band of adventurers grows, with the help and friendship from a human nomad by the name of Abawken and an elf called Xan.

Only when he finds the Key to unlock the box, and discovers the Orb of Truth, with its commanding yet love-filled Presence, does he begin to understand his calling. The words uttered by Xan are what drive the adventurers to their goal, even beyond the realm of mortality: "I tend to think of risk as faith".

Imagine what the end product would be if J R R Tolkien and C S Lewis were to collaborate on a book. I am pretty sure "The Orb of Truth" would be very much like what they would come up with. An adventure that mingles Old and New Testament beliefs with the world of mythological creatures, Mr. Wyckoff deftly weaves Scripture into the dialogue, making this book very readable and absorbing. His descriptions are fantastic (the wild forest of Everwood is described as "an orchestra without a conductor"), and the characters are well fleshed-out. He even has some comedy relief, in the form of two animated lock picks that are in the possession of the Ordakian Spilf.

The ending was satisfying, yet it made me want to read more of their adventures. Fortunately, Mr. Wyckoff has a second book coming out soon, "The Dragon God". I can hardly wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Grand Adventure! 23 May 2013
By Michaelreviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Orb of Truth is a fast paced, hi-fantasy epic Adventure. It has everything a story in this genre needs: struggle, suspense, battles, mystery, sacrifice and love and a lively plot. Bridazak is an entertaining character and he and his friends learn a lot about themselves on their journey. The time and effort taken by Wycoff in his masterful world building and character development is evident as you feel you are part of the cast. Although the comparisons are to LOTR, the author has created a unique, heart pounding fantasy thriller in a genre that is hard to set yourself apart from. I would love to have a beer with Dulgin on Moonlight Mountain. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Story 19 Dec. 2012
By Dragonmama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wonderfully written story by Brae! The Orb of Truth is an Epic Adventure of three guys trying to find there way to fulfilling a prophecy. Through heart ache, loss, battles against evil, sacrifice, new friends and love they prove that nothing worth fighting for is easily attained. With lots of action at every turn, I watched as Bridazak and his friends learn many life lessons and even though this is a fantasy similar to the Lord of the Rings; I feel many people can learn something from it. This isn't just a battle of good vs evil with fairies, unicorns, gnomes, dwarfs and halflings; it teaches that there is a reason for everything and though we may not like what is put before us someone is always there to help us along the way if you put in the effort to make it happen. The Orb of Truth is a wonderful book for preteens and up. I can't wait for my son to read it as I know he will enjoy it as much as I have. I will be impatiently awaiting the next book! Thank you Brae for a wonderful story for all to enjoy!
