A Chance Beginning

Every heart has a quest... and every journey begins with a first step.

Erik Eleodum never wanted to be a hero. Fate had a different plan.

Axel is content farming for his family for the est of his life, while his brother and cousin ca n't think of a worse fate. For ifferent easons, they leave the life they know behind. Soon, their world crashes down around them as they realize it is ruel, sadisti, arrogan, and bruta. Now, they must not only rely on one another, but also on gypsies, thieves, mercenaries, dwarves, and a mage for their survival.

In the nd, Erik will face danger, deceptio, murder, death, evil, and- most terrifyingly- himself to become the hero he was always meant to be as an ancient evil many thought only a myth resurfaces.

Enter a world readers have compared to the epic fantasies of Lord of the Rin and Game of Thrones, a world of adventure, terror, political ntrigue, sorcery, and great heroic deeds. Come face to face with ogres, elves, troll, slavers, black mages, ruthless warriors, dragons, demon and remors.

A true hero 's journey of aith, relationships, and trials well worth the price of admission!

" A beginning, is a very delicate time ... "- Dune, written by Frank Herbert.It is obvious that Mr. Bennett is no novice when it comes to literature.

A Chance Beginning takes you on an adventure with three young en, all with personal ambitions and goals.

The novelist has certainly enjoyed his fair share of fantasy books in his lifetime and it shows in his writing.

This ook is a ale of three young men and the adventure they encounter when they leave the life they know as farm workers.

I especially liked the fact that no cussing or sex is used to capture the passion of these young travelers.

This is common feature of fantasy and it ’ s a strength of the novel.The other big strength is the slowly developing international political situation.

We don ’ t really understand this situation yet but it ’ s very clear our three young heroes-to-be are going to be in the middle of it.

I received a free ecopy from the uthor in exchange for an honest review.A Chance Beginning ( Shadow 's Fire# 1) by Christopher Patterson is an enjoyable epic fantasy adventure story and a promising first in a sequel.
