In preparation for my Christmas KDP special which is scheduled to start on Sunday, December 1st, I’ve chosen the following excerpt from:
The Wizard, The Girl and The Unicorn’s Horn
Without warning, the wizard stops and motions the goblins to be still. The goblins listen intently but hear nothing. They sniff the air but don’t smell anything. They look to the top of the mountains but see only the sky beyond the peaks.
Grog’s followers look at him, but he just shrugs his shoulders. No sooner had he done so, than their eyes suddenly widen. The shadow sweeps over the mountains and descends upon them in the time it takes them to gasp.
There is menacing laughter in the shadow. The goblins raise their clubs and look around them. Grog stands, legs apart, patting his hand with his club. The wizard stands still, a steady, but firm grasp upon the staff at his side. He shows no emotion and remains silent.
The laughter fades and is replaced by a whisper.
“I knew you would come, old man. Are you missing your stupid simple peasants?”
The wizard remains silent.
“Lost your tongue, have you? Oh, I know, you didn’t expect a confrontation so soon did you?”
The wizard still remains silent.
“What’s this rabble you have with you? Goblin retards? Is that the best you can do? Well, I suppose that’s all you get when you waste your life shepherding such pathetic creatures. When I have wrested this land from you, they shall cower before me even as your simple peasants do, if I decide they can be useful, that is!”
This time the wizard breaks his silence with surprising power in his voice. “Enough!”
With that simple word, the wizard raises his staff and light emanates from a crystal at the top of it. The shadow withdraws at a rapid pace.
Silence befalls. The goblins stand with a look of shock on their faces. Only Grog is standing there with a silly grin on his face. Finally, he speaks.
“Shall we go on?”
“No, we shall rest tonight Grog. He won’t come back.”
“How can wizard be so sure?”
“He got what he came for. He wanted to test the strength of my magic, that’s all.”
In this first instalment from The Chronicles of Geo, The Wizard, The Girl And The Unicorn’s Horn presents you with a children’s fantasy the whole family will enjoy.
Prepare to be transported to the magical land of Geo where people, goblins and even trolls live in relative harmony until things are drastically changed when the evil shadow comes with his demon hordes.
Suddenly, the fate of the people along with all of Geo will rest in the hands of an old worn out wizard, a ragtag bunch of goblins, and a mysterious little girl.
Amazon Review: I loved reading this book because it took me away to another realm filled with fantasy creatures, adventure and humor.
One of the things I like most about this book are the dialogues that flow so naturally. You can almost hear the characters talk!
The story is easy to read and grabs you from the very beginning. Soon, you don’t want to return home anymore. Kevin uses the right words to paint the surroundings so that the reader gets sucked into this magical world.
The characters are very appealing and come to life on the pages.
Also, the humor in this book is used very cleverly at the right times to make you smile or even laugh out loud.
After a couple of chapters, the story speeds up and you don’t want to put the book down anymore.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read a fantasy story and wants to go on a magical journey! Amazon Customer
