The Forgotten King: Book Two of Korin’s Journal, by Brian Beam, takes you on Korin’s teenage coming-of-age story to find his adoptive parents, Mathual and Harriet Karell. Predictably, there are obstacles to overcome. Galius, an evil count of the city of Byweather, has summoned two brutes, Lily Pants and Crooked Nose, to abduct Til and Korin. Til, a Kolari, is willing to face death rather than betray his promise to Bhaliel to protect the gem -- Xalis, a dragon child, who was hatched from an egg. Korin must rescue Sal, his first love, from her father, who has warned Sal that she isn't free to love as she chooses. How will Korin and Til defeat Galius? Will Xalis be taken to the Snowy Waste? What is the truth about Korin’s birthright?
The Forgotten King: Book Two of Korin’s Journal is a testament to Brian Beam’s mastery of fiction. I traveled with Korin to lands far away, delighted in Max, a talking wizard cat, and fought eldrhims. Beam is a talented writer who skilfully mixes “anachronistic lingo” -- cool, modern-day dialogue with scenes of dungeons, damsels in distress, and wizardry. His signature style adds humor and helps the reader relate to the characters' dilemmas. Beam is married with children. He has degrees in marketing and nursing and lives in North Carolina. He is the self-published author of the Korin’s Journal fantasy series which includes The Dragon Gem: Book One of Korin’s Journal. The Forgotten King: Book Two of Korin’s Journal is highly recommended.
