About the Book
Sometimes there's no better way to understand reality than through fantasy, and the best way to find truth may be in a book - if you can find the right one.
Battles against darkness, a quest for truth, and a search for the book that no one can read are all part of the fantasy adventure in The War of Words. As an evil sorcerer wages war by using mysterious shadows and seeks to gain control by confusing the residents as to what's real and what isn't, the fate of the kingdom rests in the hands of Kelsey and Nicholas.
As the youngest officer in the king's army, Kelsey fights the evil sorcerer s shadows on the battlefield as she explores the kingdom searching for the key to winning the war. Nicholas, a young sorcerer in training who is mastering his craft, discovers how the right words can change the course of the future.
Explore an enchanted maze, uncover the power of words, and learn about friendship in this whimsical tale.
About the Author
Amy Neftzger is the author of fiction books for both adults and children. She has also been published in business and academic journals, as well as literary publications.
A few of her favorite things include traveling, books, movies, art, the Oxford comma, and gargoyles.
Amy Neftzger has written a fantasy story that teens will enjoy. I had a little bit of a hard time getting into the book at the beginning, but I pressed on and came to appreciate Amy’s characters and her fantasy, adventure story. It is a pretty strait forward read and includes magic and sorcery. It also appears that this is book three in a series and probably would have made more sense if I had read books one and two in the series. I would recommend this book to young readers that enjoy fantasy.
