Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite

The Sorcerer’s Conquest is book 1 in The Enixar series, a fantasy epic by Mikkell Khan. King Gudrunn isn’t content with the vast Gramadon Empire he acquired using the influential Enixar magic. Gudrunn now wants an ancient dragon’s egg which has been guarded by the Silent and Spiritual Monks for thousands of years. Possessing the egg would give him supreme domination. He sends his emissary, Lord Meriaus, to cajole the monks into joining his monarchy. Their refusal only infuriates the king and Meriaus becomes distrustful of his intentions towards the holy men. Amadalia, Gudrunn’s unfeeling granddaughter, begins her sorcery training with him, unknown to anyone. If she passes his test, then he will have another secret weapon to use when the time is right.

I enjoyed reading this absorbing fantasy by Mikkell Khan, a remarkable writer. The story will catch your attention from its good beginning, and the ending is suspenseful as the drama continues in Solitude of Sin, book 2 of The Enixar series. Lord Meriaus, Gudrunn and other characters are well defined and unforgettable. It really has a good twist so I was impressed with the surprises the author had in store. The visuals I got from reading were clear, consistent, and fast paced. There is a bit of graphic violence and the book is intended for young adults, but adults will definitely enjoy reading this fantasy epic too. The Sorcerer’s Conquest from The Enixar series comes highly recommended. Mikkell Khan is an author whose writing has caught my interest.

The Enixar: The Sorcerer's Conquest is Mikkell Khan’s debut YA fantasy novel. This opener to The Enixar series tells the story of de facto ruler Gudrunn and his advisor, Lord Meriaus. Gudrunn has tapped into the power of the magical Enixar and, with help from the mysterious and other-worldly Paldek, he has almost completed his takeover of the kingdom. He searches for the fabled Dragon’s egg, which is rumored to be guarded by the Silent and Spiritual Monks, the one group that has so far eluded his dominion. Lord Meriaus has been loyal to Gudrunn, but, shocked at Gundrunn’s ruthless treatment of the monks, he turns on him to try to save the people from their power-hungry leader who will stop at nothing to get the Egg. Following The Enixar: The Sorcerer's Conquest are the first several chapters of the next installment, The Enixar: The Solitude of Sin, which continues the epic fantasy 21 years later.

I found the plot of The Enixar: The Sorcerer's Conquest to be engaging with original elements. Lord Meriaus is in a precarious position and his change of allegiance was very believable. The rest of the story is largely action including some well-written fantasy graphic violence. The quality of Mikkell Khan’s writing gets even better as the story moves along and I thought the chapters at the end, that entice the reader to continue on to The Enixar: The Solitude of Sin, contained some of the best writing and character intrigue in the book. It made me want to keep reading. A good solid plot. I recommend the very promising The Enixar series to YA readers who enjoy fantasy.
