The setup for this book, is that a storyteller appears, and wants to hear the story of the protagonist. Who as it is, has become a bartender.
As it is a story within a story-setup, the book takes a little while to get going. But don’t let that chase you away. The story is soon told, and when that happens you’re stuck with this book. It’ll pull you in, and keep you there much longer than you intend. And that, is the power of a good book.
The book tells the story of a young child, that learns of a world where names carry a lot of weight. There are other powerful magical systems as well, but the names are alpha omega.
I liked this book, and can recommend this book to anyone that loves magic. The book may start out slow, but it will continue fast.
