Shadowmancer is truly an amazing read. From the detailed descriptions of the scenery to the fast paced action speckled throughout; there is more than one reason to emerse yourself in this book. Just listen to this passage. "The sailing ship moved majestically through the rolling waves, cutting further and further to the north.
Then it began. First quietly, then louder and louder, from the depths of the sea a shrill and piercing singing was heard. At first it was faint like a whisper and then it grew stronger and stronger, heard not through the ears, but through the soul. From the deep black sea came a choir of Seloth. Graceful, flowing, feminine creatures that sang and swirled around the ship, woken from their sleep by the call of the priest." pg. 7 of Shadowmancer by G.P. Taylor.
I really loved that part of the book, what happens afterword you must find out for yourself!
This book is about a young man named Thomas and his companion Kate. They meet Raphah, a man on a journey of epic proportions. This book takes place on the Yorkshire coastline in a small village. Living there is Vicar Obadiah Demurral. He seeks to contain all the power in the world for himself. How and why is for you to find out. This is a great book with a good Christian message. Hope you enjoy.
