hen The Bell Tolls is the first installment of the Gifts Of Magic epic saga. I’m a novella writer, so picking up a large book seemed like a daunting project until I got into the first chapter and then I was hooked. The author knows how to leave you on a cliffhanger and does so with each chapter.
If you love fantasy then this is the book for you! It’s an epic journey staged over a single day, where a huntress goes out in the morning to get food for the village but while she is out ‘the bell tolls’ signalling something catastrophic has happened and she has no village to return to.
The story follows Rhinea, the ‘golden haired huntress’ as she tries to make sense of everything that happens over the course of this one day and all the battles that she gets into during the course of it.
If you love ‘Lord Of The Rings’, ‘Secret Of The Nimh’ and epic fantasy genre reading then this is an absolute must for your reading pleasure!
The book combines people, magic and Gods in an uncharted way. The village Eshkel is on the verge of an enchanted forest which really comes into its own during the course of the story. Without giving too much away you will absolutely love the characters you meet here and be as I was, rooting for them with each battle they undertake.
You will love the characters and reading it will leave you hanging for the second book of the series which is to be released soon.
