Divide et Impera
Alex is a young girl who was sent to live with three wise men and her mentor, Daedalus. She is very intelligent, kind, and knows Latin and a little magic. But her life changes instantly when she sees two evil wizards use a mystical calculating device to slice off the top of a mountain, leaving her city in ruins from the giant piece of rock. She witnesses the alleged death of her old teacher and many other innocents. Then she finds herself in the middle of an army heading north to fight the wizards and several indestructible war lords. The army braves bitter cold and hunger until a girl and her guardian Zero show up and help them along with their quest. With two twins who have nothing to lose and a young orphaned king, they brave the cold winters and starvation to get to the Black Castle, the home of the two wizards.
This book was very well written and extremely exciting to read. I can’t wait to read the sequel to the book. The pace and how the author writes the story are just amazing, although some parts were confusing. I had to go back and re-read the first thirty pages to understand the beginning. There are several different viewpoints in the story, and sometimes they transition so smoothly that I don’t realize the setting has been switched. Overall, this is a very good book and really descriptive. I could see every place the characters were in my mind and the writer is obviously very talented.
I highly recommend this book for lovers of fantasy, magic, and battle. This book is filled with it. I think it’s best for kids ten to sixteen years old, but anyone can enjoy it! If you liked books like The Sea Of Trolls, then this is the book for you!
