WW28 book offering : The Amber Wizard by David Forbes

It was too hot to think about anything.

Denial much?

The Amber Wizard:
The Amber Wizard is the story of Gerin Atreyano, the crown prince of the kingdom of Khedesh. He is young and brash, and excels at most things he sets his mind to. He has a younger brother and two sisters with many talents of their own.

Gerin finds he has the potential to become an amber wizard, the likes of which have not been seen in nearly two thousand years. It is the most powerful kind of wizard, able to work spells far beyond the abilities of others.

Even before his training beghins he is beset with perils. A sorcerer from a rival nation places a spell on Gerin for some dark, unknown purpose. As he comes closer to realizing his potential, a door to the world of the dead opens unexpectedly, unleashing the spirit of a long-dead king bent on revenge for an ancient crime long lost from history.

Gerin and his family must race to find a means to defeat the Storm King as armies marshal on their borders. Their struggle will force them to make an unspeakable sacrifice if they hope to save Osseria from destruction.

O I hate when it's too hot to think. Being from Florida, I know that feeling.

Oh I hope you are enjoying this one. I'm really curious to see what you think. :) It sounds like a good read and is on my want list... at least I think it is because I remember this book. Now I have to look to make sure. :) Thank you!
