The Library of Engriole: Book 1: Promise & Betrayal by Isaac Lind
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Oakentere is a teenage boy that is skilled with a bow. When a war party comes looking for new members, Oakentere convinces the Lord in charge of the party to allow him to join. The Lord tells Oakentere's parents that he won't be involved in any fighting, but plans change. Shortly after reaching their destination, another kingdom's general enlists the war party to kill his king and disaster follows.
The Library of Engriole Book 1 is aptly subtitled Promise and Betrayal. There is especially no shortage of betrayal. General Sarim is the cause as he wants the throne and all the royals in his way dead. Sarim simply can't be trusted as Oakentere learns.
The story is simple yet solid. Oakentere like many young protagonists is simply too skilled and good to be believable.
2.5 out of 5 stars
