I don't know how I missed this - sorry Frank
Imagine our world racked by natural disasters, earthquakes, tidal waves and radiation from reactors and nuclear waste spread by hurricanes across the globe. Add to that a global winter that caused glaciers to cover the earth wiping away the last vestiges of civilization - pretty much the worst parts of the Bible.
Ten thousand generations later, mutations developed on earth with strange and wonderful powers. Yet people survived and handed down stories of things that once were. Anna Walls book, `King By Right of Blood and Might', is one such story.
Anna's book is a coming of age story of a young prince who has to learn about himself, his country, his family - and above all - a great king. Like most Prodigal Sons stories, Prince Harris Penn must leave his home and country to learn the things that will make him a great leader when he returns to take command of his kingdom.
His adventures and education range far and wide. He learned to train his own warhorse and became a corporal in his foster father's army under the command of his foster sister. While stationed at one of the posts that guarded the southern border, the post was raided in an attempt to kill him. This event is pivotal in his development as an adult.
Who would be searching for him and why? His search for an answer brings him into contact with desert nomads, Shapeshifters and Truthsayers, all of which help in his discovery of himself and his destiny.
This a good first book from a new author who is just feeling out her steps into the world of fantasy fiction.
