William Drake, a modern day Illinois blacksmith, is no stranger to unusual orders, but the latest one is odder than most. He has been commissioned to create a sword of bizarre specifications, and the sword isn't the only thing that's strange. His customer, Markham, is definitely not a local, and balks at the bill.  The sword is stolen by Markham, and William storms after him, finally retrieving the blade at the top of a rented Scottish tower. During the confrontation, William is transported, artifact in hand, to an alternate world called Wayland.Sly bartering demons, the Aos Si, wish to claim Wayland, as does a rival duke and his mage, Veddick. Meanwhile, a banished dieity, Credine, is seeking return to Wayland by using William as his unwilling avatar. Caught in a web between the three competing powers, William must unravel the mystery of the sword he has forged, stave off the encroaching god Credine and save the residents of Wayland from both the god, the usurpation of the rival duke, and the Ao Si.

Over used story arc but well read

Reviewed at: Chapter Twenty Six: Imprisoned!

Even though the whole summoner genre is over used in some way it is a good story. I loved the characters and how the story flows. There are some parts where the grammar is off but it doesn't take anything from the story.

This has been a most excellent read so far. The story flows smoothly and the tension ebbs and rises in accordance to the situation while building up to the inevitable finale.
The premises and many themes are traditional and familiar but with refreshingly original tweaks. The characters are round and dynamic and while introspection happens frequently  it does where it's needed and adds depth to William's actions instead of bogging the story down.
Fluidity is exactly one of the story's strongest points and it makes it a treat to read.
The only damper on my enjoyment  so far has been my constant need to peruse a dictionary, but it is a very minor one and the lingo adds to the charme.
I highly recommend this story to any fan of classic fantasy
