Brian G. Michaud - The Road to Nyn - Review & Giveaway



About the Book

In a land where magic is outlawed, a young boy is living a double life. Although Kay is training to be a knight, he has been secretly studying the forbidden ways of magic with Alamin, a powerful but eccentric wizard.

After passing of the Trial of the Rings and being raised to squirehood, Kay has decided to tell Alamin that he is going to leave his magical studies behind. And why not? Kay hasn’t ever cast a spell without something going seriously wrong–like the random appearance of frogs or hungry wolves–besides, Kay could be banished from the kingdom just for associating with Alamin.

Kay’s plans are quickly obliterated when a horde of goblins attacks his village and captures his family and friends. Now, with his home lying in ruins, everything has changed. Along with Alamin and Felix, a self-serving kleptomaniac sprite, Kay embarks on an adventure that takes him across the Kingdom of Gaspar and into the dark and treacherous caves of the Goblin Realm. What Kay doesn’t realize is that his journey is leading him on a collision course with the Lord of Nyn – a being so powerful that none dare face him...not even Alamin himself!


My Review

Kay is the main character of the book who ventures off across the Kingdom of Gasper into the Goblin Realm. He is on a quest after his village is raided and his family is enslaved. It is quite a fantasy story that is filled with magic and characters that will surely peak your interest. This story is geared toward the Young Adult genre, but as a senior citizen reader I enjoyed it very much.

  1. Thank you very much for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed The Road to Nyn. It's funny, but the two groups that I have received the most enthusiastic local feedback from have the teens and the seniors.
