BOOK ONE – THE ENCHANTED DESTINY CHRONICLES
THE SWORD OF THE SANDS
“It’s an ambush!” yelled Gregory.
Sure enough, all around, the sound of high-pitched cackling, mixed with gurgled roars and shrieks filled the air. Then with a crash and a shower of leaves, something came flying at the group. It was short, dressed in rags except for a crimson cap on its head and the iron shoes worn over its large feet. It had warts, long, black teeth and was covered with grizzly hair.
Obeying her first instinct, Elaina leapt to her feet, grabbed her sword and charged at the Redcap. At once, the two began to battle, but Elaina had to use all her skill to keep up with the Redcap’s movements. However, using her elf senses to see things in slow motion, Elaina managed to cut the Redcap across the leg. But as Elaina was about to deliver a finishing blow, the Redcap let out a gurgling shriek before Elaina severed its head.

OH MY GOD! I've not been that giddy since my first Percy Jackson novel.

Reading this book has been a genuine pleasure... It was very engaging right from the first pages. I love the way Josh describes his characters... I quickly found myself caught up in the story.
