If I were to recommend a book at the moment, I would recommend “House Of Blades” by Will Wight. I highly recommend all of Will Wight’s books, but this is the series I’m working on currently. Here is the description from Amazon:
“Simon can only watch, helpless, as his family is killed and his friends captured by enemy Travelers—men and women who can summon mystical powers from otherworldly Territories. To top it off, another young man from Simon’s village discovers that he’s a savior prophesied to destroy evil and save the realm.
Prophecy has nothing to say about Simon. He has no special powers, no magical weapons, and no guarantee that he’ll survive. But he sets off anyway, alone, to gain the power he needs to oppose the Travelers and topple their ruthless Overlord. It may not be his destiny, but Simon’s determined to rescue his fellow villagers from certain death.
Because who cares about prophecy, really?”
The series is fast paced and plenty of action scenes. I love the worlds that Will creates in his stories. They are unique and exciting. I listened to the book on Audible which is read by Travis Baldree. Travis does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life. The photo of the book will take you to the link on Amazon where you can buy the book and I’ll post a link to Audible later.
