Bonecaller: Book One by Logan Keys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
***** 5 Cranky Stars *****
This is a great start to a fantasy series: witches and wizards, pirates and dragons. It reminds me of the fantasy films of my childhood, such as The Neverending Story and the Princess Bride.
In a world on the brink of war, two groups are unwittingly caught in the midst of upheaval.
Raven steals an illegal magic little knowing that an evil wizard is searching for it. Together with her friend, Sim, Raven is being held hostage by a powerful witch with secrets of her own.
On the other side: John harbors a family secret that haunts him. He has no memory of what happened in his past, but he's been running from it since he was a child and trying to find answers. Wary of being dragged into a war with wizards, the pirate collides with a witch - a witch wanted by the Dark Wizard.
As the two groups' storylines converge, they realize they can help each other and not just in terms of saving their lives, but working out who they are.
All in all, this was a great romp of a read and I'm looking forward to the next one. If you like fantasy, I recommend you pick this one up now and it could be read by people of all ages.
