4.8 Stars for Fire of the Covenant (Amazon)
Don’t Miss This One!!
“As intricately woven as Martin’s ‘Game of Thrones’ and mystically enchanting as Rawling’s ‘Harry Potter’, Peter Cruikshank’s first novel is an amazing read. His style is so clear and the characters so real that I felt I was reading in living color. It is an encompassing tale of magic,and majesty, of dragons and adventure, that has a magnetic grip on the reader. It left me anxiously awaiting the sequel, a feeling I haven’t experienced since Jean Auel’s ‘Clan of the Cave Bear.'”
You have been dragon-called to read this book
“Peter Cruikshank’s Fire of the Covenant (Dragon called legend, book 1) is an outstanding debut novel that is sure to appeal to epic fantasy lovers of all ages.”
“It’s the story of Princess Willoe – who is much happier with a sword in her hand than socialising with the ladies at court; and her twin brother Prince Rowyn – who would rather be studying in his uncle Brom’s tower than swinging a sword on the training ground.”
“Unfortunately for the twins their grandfather, the King of Cainwen, has other ideas for them with Willoe to be married off and Rowyn to take up the life of a man-at-arms.”
“But there is something special about these siblings and the King isn’t the only one who has plans for their future. Pursued by the priests of a religious order who would use the twins’ talents to dominate the world, Willoe and Rowyn come to learn of a covenant made by one of their ancestors with the King of the dragons – and the heartbreaking role they have to play in it.”
“Or do they?”
“Fire of the Covenant contains all the elements you’d expect from a classic epic fantasy romp with more battles, magic, elves, dwarves (or dwarf-like creatures), dragons and deities than you can poke a sword at. And while there is plenty of action and intrigue to keep readers turning the pages, the real strength of the story lies in its characters.”
“Cruikshank has crafted some wonderful characters to fill his well-realised world, with likeable protagonists, deplorable villains and a supporting cast that are full of surprises. I found myself caring about these characters and wanting to know more about them as the story unfolded.”
“Fire of the Covenant kept me engaged right to the very last page and had me craving the next book in the series. Highly recommended.”
I am happy to share with our readers the cover for the upcoming Betrayal of the Covenant, the second book in the Dragon-Called series. Join twins, Willoe and Rowyn on an epic tale of coming of age, the passion of love and sacrifice, and the eternal struggle between light and darkness, and an adventure that encompasses the known world of Saoghal. Meet Elfs, the little Tinks, the ferocious Kata-henis ridden by the Elfs, and more Fantasy creatures – including DRAGONS!
Tracked by minions of the evil Shin-il priest, the Dragon-Called Twins, Rowyn and Willoe, journey on a quest to the Hoarfrost Mountains. Lands rife with dangers, including Sköll Wolves and Ice Giants, and may hide more than just the sought-after Sword and Staff. Devices created by dragons that are rumored to control the Others and the Fire Within, while preventing one of the twins from dying to satisfy the Covenant.
The key to opposing the Shin-il priests and taking back Taran lies in an all-out assault on Tierran’s Wall – built to be impregnable. Sellswords, Blood Stalkers and Shades, creatures as much dead as alive, will do anything to prevent the twins from succeeding. Unexpected allies may provide the help they need to overcome these obstacles, but an unimaginable betrayal may end the Covenant and destroy the twins’ ability to defeat the Great Evil, the Olcas Mogwai.
Legend says a Covenant between an ancient race of dragons and a Halfling King vanquished a relentless evil. More than a thousand years later, the evil has returned, better prepared and hungering for vengeance. When the legacy falls to the twins Willoe and Rowyn, sixteen-year-old descendants of the mythical king, they struggle with the truth they discover behind the Covenant’s deadly cost.
With the aid of their cousins Aeron and Casandra, the twins must learn to wield the power of the Dragon’s Fire that flows through their veins to defeat the minions of the great evil, even though success may require the greatest of sacrifices.
In a story with a host of characters and multiple story lines, Fire of the Covenant begins an epic adventure of self-discovery, the passion of love and sacrifice, and the eternal struggle between light and darkness.
As intricately woven as Martin’s “Game of Thrones” and mystically enchanting as Rowling’s “Harry Potter”, Peter Cruikshank’s first novel is an amazing read. His style is so clear and the characters so real that I felt I was reading in living color. It is an encompassing tale of magic, of majesty, and of dragons and adventure that has a magnetic grip on the reader. It left me anxiously awaiting the sequel, a feeling I haven’t experienced since Jean Auel’s “Clan of the Cave Bear.” – Amazon Review
