Today is my stop on the blog tour for ‘The Ventifact Colossus’ by Dorian Hart organised by Storytellers on Tour, which is the first book in the Heroes of Spira. The fourth and final book in the series – The Infinite Tower – is out later this year and can be pre-ordered now (Amazon UK | Amazon US) .
I hope that you will check out the book and the author, and enjoy the rest of the tour with the schedule in the banner below or (HERE). The Ventifact Colossus will be on sale for $0.99 on Amazon during the week of the tour, and there is an opportunity to win yourself a bundle of the first three books in this series in paperback at the end of this post (US/CA Only).
*Disclaimer: ‘I was given a copy this book in exchange for an honest review, all views are my own.’*
Banished to an otherworldly prison for centuries, the monstrous Emperor Naradawk is about to break free and wreak havoc upon the world of Spira. The archmage Abernathy can no longer keep the monster at bay, and has summoned a collection of would-be heroes to help set things right.
Surely he made a mistake. These *can’t* be the right people.
Dranko is priest-turned-pickpocket, expelled from his church for his antics. Kibilhathur is a painfully shy craftsman who speaks to stones. Aravia is a wizard’s apprentice whose intellect is eclipsed only by her arrogance. Ernest is a terrified baker’s son. Morningstar is a priestess forbidden from daylight. Tor is a young nobleman with attention issues. Ysabel is an elderly farm woman. Grey Wolf is a hard-bitten mercenary.
None of them are qualified to save the world, but they’ll have to do. Even Abernathy himself seems uncertain as to why he chose them.
What starts with a simple scouting mission soon spirals into something more far-reaching and sinister. The heroes will contest with dream warriors, evil cultists, sentient gemstones, and a devious yet infuriatingly polite gentleman with a perfect mustache, on their way to a desperate encounter with the unstoppable: The Ventifact Colossus.
