White Mountain by Sophe E. Tallis is the first book in the Darkling Chronicles series. An epic tale of good versus evil, White Mountain follows the arduous journey of a wizened powerful mage, Marvalla Agyk, as he seeks to destroy the evil changeling who stole his powers before it's too late. Mr. Agyk is accompanied by his fiercely loyal friend and dragon Gralen, and Wendya, the witch he loves like a daughter. Along their journey, they encounter more victims of the villain Morreck and gain allies to aid their cause. An Oracle tells Mr. Agyk that one of his traveling companions will betray them and one of them will die, leaving him worried for his dear friends, yet knowing that they must continue on their quest or all will be lost.
Sophe E. Tallis has crafted a complex world of magical beings intertwined with the human world in White Mountain. The journey covers varied gorgeous landscapes as the group journeys through the seasons across various kingdoms in order to complete their quest. Fans of classics such as The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings Trilogy will enjoy reading White Mountain as the epic battles between good and evil forces are told in splendid detail. The first in the Darkling Chronicles, White Mountain delves deeply into the characters while leaving the reader in breathless anticipation of the subsequent volumes. The shocking revelation at the end of the book made me wish that I already had the next installment so I could immediately continue the saga of Mr. Agyk, Wendya, Korrun and Gralen!
