Servant of the Lich by Chris Wilmsmeyer (book review)
Hannibal Balinci had it all. The wizard, at the age of forty-four, had just about everything in life that a man could hope for: love for his wife, passion for his work, and enough wealth to sustain him for a thousand lifetimes. For the first time since he could remember, Hannibal Balinci felt happy.
Unfortunately, he had built that happiness on a foundation of lies. Now, as the warm summer winds from the Dark Sea blew across the land of Andora, Hannibal's cold past finally caught up with him. In the first installment of a spellbinding epic, Hannibal faces the most difficult challenge of his life.
Not all is as it appears across the land of Andora... and Hannibal rushes to stay ahead of the wheels of danger, already spinning out of control. An unlikely group of heroes, poised to stop the sinister forces that have set their sights on this prospering land, will have to a face a group of adversaries beyond imagining.
terror awaits the brave and dangers await the foolish...
...when the darkness comes
First off this is not the kind of book I would usually read so I didn't really expect much.
I was quite surprised though that I really liked this book. It is very well written and makes you want to keep reading it. Very easy to imagine the characters in my mind too.
I highly recommend this book.
