Synopsis: “Glamour to the gullible. The siren song of the world is as music to the wanderer’s feet, but that dance leads only to the soul-less grave.” So Jekaran’s uncle has warned him. But that doesn’t stop him from leaping at the exhilarating chance to single-handedly rescue a beautiful woman from a gang of lecherous thieves. But the bored farm boy quickly finds that he is no match for the group of angry street thugs, and only escapes death by bonding a magical sword that grants him the strength and skill of a master swordsman. Unfortunately, a peasant wielding such magic is forbidden and punishable by death. Thus Jekaran finds himself a fugitive with his fate tied to that of the exotic and mysterious, Kairah; a fey woman who must deliver a dire warning to the king that, if heeded, could prevent the very extinction of humanity.
My Review: While a lot of fantasy feels tired and regurgitated, the Lure of Fools is fresh and fun. With a pervasive magic system touching every facet of life, and characters that you think you used to know, the book grabs ahold and won’t let go. Jason King’s imagery is breath taking. In an age of CGI and special effects, this book holds its own. You will be glad you read it! Five stars.
Don’t wait, get The Lure of Fools by Jason King NOW!
