Very short, but incredibly beautiful. This is a short tale that fits into the Sanctuary series Defender: The Sanctuary Series, Volume One. The main character Cyrus returns to his hometown for a short visit. During his short stay he realises that his decision to join the Sanctuary and the events he has endured have changed his life in ways he can't even begin to fathom.The story gives a short insight into the series, which is an epic fantasy about a Guild of mercenarys that consists of men, elves, trolls, magick users and other beings of the fantastical variety. I received a complimentary copy of this book for my review.
