  1. As I can’t review my own book, I would like to encourage your vote with a wonderful review from the great Piers Anthony!

    I read Zac’s Destiny, by Lynne North, a children’s fantasy, straightforward, easy to read, the story stepping right along. Young Zac is a stable boy who dreams he must go to the Baron and ask to see the casket of Aldric, the sorcerer who has mysteriously disappeared just as the enemy is invading the kingdom. He does, and it opens for him as it does for no one else, and he gains a sword named Solstice that only he can wield, a glass ball, and a silver ring. They are magical, of course, but the nature of their charms is not immediately apparent. With these Zac must set forth to find and rescue Aldric. His friend Beth, a girl his age, joins him, and they are off on an adventure that soon turns brutal. Gradually the properties of the magic items become evident, and with the help of companions they meet along the way they labor to fulfill their destiny. Standard as it is in outline, it’s well done and gripping as Zac learns things he never dreamed of. Of course they save the kingdom, but it’s the manner of it that counts. I think if I were a child I’d find this hard to put down, and even as a cynical old man I found it compelling. — Piers Anthony
