Title: The Snowtiger’s Trail
Author: Watson Davis
Genre: Dark Fantasy/Swords and Sorcery
Welcome to Windhaven and the Wrath of the Wizard-King!
A deposed Wizard-king leads his ragged band of followers to the last town before the Far Waste and hides there from his vengeful queen while building an army to re-take his rightful kingdom. A regular army won't do for the Wizard-king. He needs something deadlier, something magical, something demonic.
When Wallak of the Bright Fox tribe wakes up from a night of carousing in Ancliff, he can't find his nephew. He can't return to his tribe alone, but if he discovers his nephew whereabouts, he may never return to his tribe at all.
This is a swords and sorcery tale of dark, soul-twisting magic where no-one is safe.
Wallak is from the Bright Fox tribe, a group of reindeer herders, and he’s hunting for an elusive prey: the snowtiger. Just as he has it in his sights, two brash strangers interrupt him, and he almost gets killed by the snowtiger. He escapes and when he tells the leader of the Bright Fox tribe, Nase, what the strangers proclaimed, Wallak is put in his place. Nase warns him to be careful of these strangers, not realizing the danger they’re all in. There’s a Wizard King in their town and he’ll stop at nothing to reclaim his kingdom, even if he has to kill every person who stands in his way. Will Wallak and his tribesmen survive and reclaim their territory or will the Wizard King be victorious?
In a cross between Tolkien and Robert Jordan, Watson Davis breaths new life into the fantasy genre. Filled with a full cast of characters, The Snowtiger’s Trail takes the reader on an epic adventure where magic and prowess equals power. Told in first person POV, you get to experience what the characters experience. While the complex names of characters and places caused some confusion, after a bit, I figured it out. The world-building is top-notch and the descriptive narration makes you feel like you’re right there in the scene.
I enjoyed entering the world of Windhaven and I look forward to reading more in this series. Highly recommend!
