The General's Legacy - Part One: InheritanceFantasy lovers are in for a treat with Adrian Hilder’s THE GENERAL’S LEGACY: PART ONE: INHERITANCE! He was a legend, a fierce warrior and leader who was determined to conquer all he deemed necessary by use of magic, force and even the souls of the dead. His legacy to his grandson was to teach him all he could, but young Prince Cory had no idea how different these lessons were to the reality of war and bloodshed and it was his duty to lead his soldiers into battle and possibly their death.

Frustrated, young, in love with the enemy’s daughter, his heart is torn between defending his people from the attacks of soldiers, dark mages and magic to save his kingdom while leading his army to almost certain death and becoming the man who ends war, altogether. But will it cost him more than he can pay?

Vivid scenes of magic, battles, and a family in crisis, trapped in the life determined by the actions of a now dead ruler, the tension runs high and taut. Mr. Hilder has created a tale filled with loyalty, love and the evils of war and betrayals. Very detailed, yet magically riveting, the dialogue and the characters feel alive as we travel from scene to horrific scene in a land where the true strength of a kingdom is in the strength of the war mage they possess.

Prince Cory stands out as a young man determined to go beyond his limits for his people, his family and the land he loves. Well told, well thought out, complete with non-stop action as the battles continue and the death tolls rise.

I received an ARC edition from Adrian G. Hilder in exchange for my honest review.
