Book Review — LICHGATES (Grimoire Trilogy #1)

By S.M. Boyce

Imagine a fantasy novel with a taste of Lord of the Rings, Narnia and Harry Potter. You might sense the influences

The Grimoire Lichgates & Author

that must have guided debut author S.M. Boyce. From beautifully crafted descriptions and exposition to action packed thrills, it’s all there: fight scenes that work, magic, shape shifting creatures, time-shifts and a cast of likable good guys offset by terrifying opponents.

Main character Kara Magari stumbles onto an ancient book while hiking on a mountain trail. The talking book, the places it leads her, and the characters will transform her life. Kara is bright, witty and funny. To survive she will need all of those attributes and the help of loyal friends. Part of the problem is she can’t be sure who is friend or foe.

As the latest Vagabond, the World of Ourea is in her hands. It is said the first Vagabond was murdered for attempting to unite a shattered world. Now, Kara has the same assignment.
