If you have read some of my past reviews, you already know that I am not a fantasy fan. Therefore, I do not feel I am the best reviewer to review this new novel; however, I will present the basics and my opinion on the quality of writing.

The back cover tells us:

"Thoughout the world of Gandril, there are dozens of small, peaceful villages like Geddington. Tucked away in the countrywide, far from the affairs of kings, queens and politics, the people of Geddington are safe from the dangers and hostilities of the world–or so they believe.

"Soldiers serving the Twilight Union come to Geddington in search of a mysterious man named Dristlemore, keeping their reasons private. But Dristlemore is sought by the powerful sorcerer Lord Mydoc for a far more sinister purpose–to be eliminated by whatever means necessary. In a vicious raid, Geddington is burned to the ground, and its people are butchered like livestock. When the horror finally ends, only three survivors and one cryptic letter remains.

"Alone and with nowhere to go, the three survivors follow their only clue in the mysterious letter, hoping to find answers and learn the identity of Dristlemore."

Again, the eternal fight between good and evil.

Brian Moniz tells a good story and if you’re a fantasy fan, you will probably enjoy Dristlemore. Brian is a consummate, energetic writer with a captivating style of writing. Enjoy!
