Summary of the Book:

For thousands of years, the Breaker of the Dawn has been locked away in the ethereal plane of the Otherworld. Now, a young blacksmith’s apprentice finds himself trapped in a war between the noble Athrani, a subset of humanity gifted with the ability to transmute matter, and the malevolent and powerful Khyth, who seek to free the ancient god from his prison.

When his father, Olson, is kidnapped, Thornton Woods and his childhood friend, Miera, must leave their small village of Highglade to find him. On their way, they are joined by Ynara and Kethras, cat-like humanoids called Kienari, who use their skills as hunter/trackers to follow Olson’s trail. When it comes to light that one among them possesses the key to the Breaker’s release, Thornton and his friends must defy the might of the Khyth as armies on both sides collide in pursuit of the ultimate prize.

Gift of the Shaper chronicles the epic struggle between the existing forces of good and evil, with both sides vying for control of the key that unlocks the Otherworld. The very powers of creation and destruction hang in the balance, and only a heroic effort by Thornton and Miera, backed by the power of the Athrani, can possibly stop the Khyth from unleashing ruin — and the Breaker — upon their world.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I got a copy of this from the author and once I had my hands on it I had to read and then re-read to get the whole experience of this epic adventure. The characters are wonderful and have strong personalities of their own. The whole world just unfolds before you and the twists and turns keep coming and keeping the reader on their toes. It is a story that you biting your nails to see what happens next. That is what I want. To get my hands on book 2 in the Highglade Series.

My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars.
