Journey of Destiny by Leisl Kaberry is book 1 of the Titanian Chronicles. Afeclin, a human child, was found on the Elven borders and raised as an Elven by a king. Now he’s grown up and his biggest desire is to learn the mystic arts. To do that, he must set out on a journey to an unfamiliar land, accompanied by Wolflang, his best friend in the Elven world. They don’t realize they are walking into danger as the warlord Moorlan and a dark mage are preparing to unsettle Marrapassa with war. As the two friends journey through the unfamiliar human lands, they are being followed by Lenna, Wolflang’s fiancée, and they must witness the harsh brutality of human life. Will they find their destinies? Can they stop Moorlan from waging an all-out war on Marrapassa? And will Afeclin find his place in the world?
Journey of Destiny: Titanian Chronicles by Leisl Kaberry is one of the best fantasy stories I have read in a long time. It is an epic fantasy with all the elements you expect – legendary warriors and a king, dark enemies, weird and wonderful beasts – but it also has a human element too. At its very heart, it is the story of a man trying to find the place he can truly call home. The story makes you feel as though you are reading of ancient times, not a mythical fantasy world, and the characters feel very real too, with Afeclin’s backstory being revealed gradually throughout the book. There is plenty of action and a lot of twists and turns. While you may feel the book ends suddenly, it’s worth bearing in mind that this is just volume 1 – there’s more to come and, if this book is anything to go by, it will be worth the wait.
