‘Storm of Divine Light’ by Ernesto San Giacomo

Storm of Divine Light

When the Orb of the First Light is stolen from a monastery, the monks charged with guarding the powerful weapon are desperate to recover it. Teaming up with his friend Cyril the Wise. former ace rogue Dagorat takes on the dangerous quest. Travelling across the continent to his previous home of Easterly, Dagorat learns the truth about his past, but can he find the Orb and escape back to the Light in the midst of an ever-present threat of war?

Not being a massive fan of fantasy, I’m always a little sceptical of such books, however, having read a few of Ernesto San Giacomo’s works before, I knew that, at the very least, I’d be in for a rollicking good tale. The author has a genuine talent for worldbuilding and creates a vivid picture with which to people his story. Though there’s plenty of the usual ‘characters’ in the form of elves, halflings and such like, the author’s skilful mix of folklore and mythology gives the tale depth and colour. There’s also a nice little mystery to keep our hero occupied with a bit of detective work while tracking down the stolen Orb.

This is the first book in The Tales of Tyrennia series, and will appeal to anyone who enjoys fantasy and mystery.
