Osric’s Wand is an epic tale of high fantasy Creatures in this world are governed by magic and all communicate to one another; whether they be prairie dogs, unicorns dwarfs, weasels, irua, elves, humans, lions, dragons, or eagles. All are learning their way through the ropes of magic to control and use it. This book reminded me of the epic journey Frodo took with his faithful companion Sam in "Lord of the Rings" series of books. Readers of that series will love this book as we are taken on Osric’s journey of peril and self-discovery to find the culprits who have disrupted Archana’s worldwide peace treaty with an explosion and save the world they know. Osric realizes that with the explosion killing some at the conference and disrupting the treaty signing each world leader will now blame the other; as they do not know where the danger came from. Osric is young and new at leadership but he has great gifts that can help him in his quest to find out the truth behind the explosions and how to prevent war He is not aware of these gift or how to use these gifts but he is willing to learn; something a reader will enjoy as the hero has to find his way. Osric is young brash but has a great capacity for compassion and leadership though he is unaware of his abilities at first. His steadfast companion Kenneth (his Sam)Gus a prairie dog wand maker (his Gimli and Gandalf all in one ) challenges him and has a gruff adversarial stance. As well as Pebble, Kenneth's son and Bridgett an empath and Maiden to the Unicorns who join Osric to become his steadfast companions. Each help Osric to try to achieve the goals set . Together these brave creatures set out on a perilous journey to save their world. Each will bring their own strengths to hopefully achieve their purpose.
There are so many intricate layers to this story that will keep the reader wondering what will happen next. This book will appeal across the board to readers of all ages who enjoy a great epic story. I was not a big fantasy fan before reading this book but I have to say these writers engaged my interest with their characters and I was able to picture it all.A truly enjoyable the writers captured my interest from the first page and never let it go.
Five stars out of five.
