“A deep and intriguing magic brings a fresh feel to fantasy in this visually stunning journey. Jason King weaves powerful stories that grip the reader to the last word with a perfect blend of amazement, fear, love, and destiny. Anybody drawn to dangerous adventure won’t be able to resist The Lure of Fools. It’s Lloyd Alexander for a new millennium.” – James Wymore, author of Theocracide.
Need I say more? I mean, really. And no, I'm not being biased because James Wymore is amazing and you should all be jealous that he mentored me for the Haunted Writing Clinic and Contest last year.
Okay, well, maybe I am a little. But seriously! Read the blurb for yourself and you'll be hopping over to Goodreads to add it to your TBR list as well!

“Adventure is the lure
of fools, and excitement 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
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.
