Tween Tuesday Review: Book of Tormod

Tormod runs home to grab the box of tinder for lighting the Beltane fires. Never mind that he traded jobs with his brother. If the fire doesn’t light on time, he’s going to be in trouble.

Unfortunately, a Knight’s Templar needs a message delivered as soon as possible to the Abbot. Abandoning his task, Tormod runs to the Templar encampment. There he delivers the message, but there are already men with the Abbot.

He’s forced to deliver the message. The men swiftly leave intent on hunting down the Knight. Tormod has a vision of their encounter. He begs the Abbot to allow him to intercept the Knight and lead him across a different path.

Tormod never guesses that his journey to help the Knight will lead him far away from home and on an adventure he never imagined.

My Thoughts: BOOK OF TORMOD starts the beginning of an adventure that crosses several counties. Danger always follows the Knight Templar and his companions. Tormod has hidden talents creating a blend of religion and supernatural elements. He will need to understand in his talents order to remain alive.

Cover Thoughts: I like it - it draws me in.
