A black smith assistant to her foster father, Eva never imagined leaving her cozy home on the farm. When she heard of a gryphon egg being stolen from the gyr, she definitely never expected to come across it.
Yet, when the young thief shows up in her barn claiming she is the rightful match of the egg, she realizes her destiny is much more than she anticipated. Will she be able to live up to the prophesy set before her?
Enter the magical world of Altaris and ride along with the gryphon riders in Derrick Alan Siddoway’s, Windsworn. A beautiful masterpiece of enchantment, Derrick showcases his ability to describe a vivid imaginary setting. He creates an atmosphere in which his readers not only visualize the landscape, but immerse oneself within.
In addition, the storyline takes readers on a journey jam-packed with mystery, confrontations, rebellion, and a hint of romance. Nonetheless, borderline profanity throughout along with several grammatical and formatting errors, a rating of 4 out of 5 stars is given.
Please read with caution if any of the following may cause you distress: death during childbirth, abandonment, amputation, thievery, betrayal, foster care, mutilated and bloody bodies, murder, arrest, death penalty, and depression.
A breathtaking introduction to the fictional realm of gryphon riders, Windsworn is an adventure you do not want to miss.
