While the world leaders of Archana gather for an unprecedented peace treaty signing, tragedy strikes, and rumors spread of war. Osric; a young, untested leader, is thrust into the chaos and must journey far with his unlikely companions to stop the inevitable world war. Circumstance brought them together, but prophecy has entwined their fates.

Now, the young Vigile Contege, the world’s greatest Wand-Maker, and a beautiful Maiden of the Unicorn must put aside their differences and work together, or watch as their homes are destroyed. Their understanding of magic will be challenged as they discover new methods and uses for their powers, and each day will only uncover more unanswerable questions to torment Osric’s mind.

Why was the signing attacked? What do the unicorns want with him? How do you read a book with no words? What is so special about his wand?

Osric's Wand: The Wand-Maker's Debate
by Jack D. Albrecht Jr. & Ashley Delay (Osric's Wand #1)

Osric's Wand: The Wand-Maker's DebateThe chaos began on Archana when the world leaders gathered to sign a treaty for peace, something that has never been achieved. Tragedy strikes, leaders die and answers must be found. Who did this? With a worldwide war in the offing, Osric must journey far to stop the inevitable from happening.

In a world filled with magic, unicorns, enslaved dragons and unknown powers to be revealed, Osric sets out with his best friend and fellow soldier, the world’s greatest Wand-Maker, snarky, but knowledgeable creature and a beautiful magical Maiden of the Unicorn, whose calm and angelic features may be stealing Osric’s heart. Their fates lie in an ancient prophecy, but only their bravery and the gifts bestowed on Osric will keep them safe.

Travel on the back of a flying dragon, meet huge eagles, survive the visions that have been seen and witness the birth of the powers of magic. Osric’s Wand by Jack D. Albrecht Jr. and Ashley Delay is a journey into the realm of magic and fantasy written for younger readers that brings the flight of a dragon to life, where the honor of the characters feels real and the dangers they encounter are something only the mind can truly see. Wonderful descriptions bring each scene to life, as all types of creatures speak, perform magic and learn to work together as allies. Some characters are quirky, some have sharp tongues and some are the quiet heroes that make fantasy and history breathe.

A wonderful look into another world, a magical journey and a quest for the good of all that couldn't succeed without friendship and trust.

I received this copy from the authors in exchange for my honest review.

  1. I have this on my TBR list. So many books, so little time! Hopefully, this year I will get to this one.
