The money when hunting witches was good but the quest itself was dangerous. Evan Striker knew the risks he was taking when he decided to search for Calesso. Knights got killed all the time when they went after Calesso. Despite others telling him the impossibility of the quest, Sir Evan is determined to see it through. He searches far and wide for clues about any witch, all to find his target, the sorceress Calesso. In his search, an informant tells him about a little cottage that is nicer than most places, less than half a day's journey by horse. The person there could either be the one he is looking for or could give him a clue that would bring him closer to finding Calesso. Where will his journey take him and what will he find along the way? Read Striker's Search by Michael Lanz to find out.
The first thing that stood out to me when I read Striker's Search by Michael Lanz is how honorable, brave, and clever Sir Evan Striker is. Despite his profession as a witch hunter, he does not immediately judge the people who are accused as witches. He makes the effort to know their stories first and make his decisions from there. The evenly-paced storyline is easy to get into. I thoroughly enjoyed Sir Evan's exciting adventures and how he solves problems and helps people along the way. The way Lanz portrays Sir Evan’s journey made me feel like I was going on his journey with him. Lanz proficiently weaves together a concise narrative and an enticing plot that made it hard to put the story down. The plot builds as Sir Evan encounters mystical creatures and gains allies in his travels. Riveting, fantastical, and enjoyable, Striker’s Search led me on an adventure like no other. Outstanding work!
