Multi-volume author, Joshua Hoyt introduces us to “The Forsaken Petal”:
Book One in an exciting new trilogy that combines the worlds of both magic and technology to create an epic adventure that will spellbind readers of all ages!
Tom Alerio, a young boy, soon realizes that his unique ability to wield magic will change his life forever.
Sent away by his mother at a young age to protect him from the sisterhood who destroy all boys with the ability, Tom quickly finds those he can and can't trust. Between the many adventures he has, Tom encounters both. These experiences, with the addition of a trusted mentor and a new found relationship with a young enchantress, teach Tom that magic must be shared by men and women alike.
Along the way Tom realizes that an ancient order called, Order of The Rose must return if he's to save those he has come to rely on and who now rely upon him.
New technology and old magic rip the land apart while Tom fights to save all he has come to love and care for.
Praise for Order of The Rose: Forsaken Petal:
"There is action, drama, and you can't help but wonder and care about the characters closest to Tom." - Dee (Fantasy Writer)
" What fascinated me the most was the history of magic and those who use it." - Christine Rains (Author of 13th floor series)
If you enjoyed books like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Dragonlance You'll love this epic adventure
I really enjoyed reading about Tom, he has a good heart and wants to do the right thing. However, he is full of angst about his past and doubts about his future. He learns that he has magical abilities in the midst of battle, which surprises him and all of his companions who are sworn to protect him.
Mr. Hoyt has created a wonderful world with a realistic mixture of good and evil. The action is well paced and the characters develop in a timely fashion. This fantasy world is populated with many different characters. There are plenty of allusions to histories and relationships which provide nice texture to the story. There are some interesting plot twists that generate considerable excitement and make it hard to put the book down. I award 4 stars out of 5.
