Every good fantasy adventure requires an old and wise mentor to teach the young and brash newbie, and Brother Donall handles that role very well, earning a spot as my second favorite character.
In addition to the people that populate the story, the setting itself is a powerful character within the book. You’ll easily imagine yourself standing on the grassy plains of Ireland and feel the salty spray of the ocean against your face as demons attack the ship you’re on which sailing. The locations, the experiences, and the time period itself come to life with the author’s talented use of words.
If you enjoy tales of magic and adventure that are perfectly blended with reality and history, Enoch’s Device by Joseph Finley will be an exciting read for you.
