I love sci-fi/fantasy. It's been a favorite genre of mine for years. It hasn't been till lately that I fell in love with paranormal romance. I fear I have strayed away too long from my beloved fantasy. When Author Marketing Experts told me that the book Anjan was available for review, I jumped on it.
I expected it to be a good read and for me to enjoy the book, but I wasn't prepared to be pulled into a fairytale life of a boy named Anjan. Life for Anjan was magical from the very time he was born. His life was so important that Kata left one world and went to another in order to find the child that would save the world she loved.
Though Anjan didn't understand what his purpose in life was, but fate, love, and magic lead him down the perfect path to enable him to do the nearly impossible.
This book was very good. I was shocked that Mr. Einarsson was able to have this book translated (from Icelandic) so wonderfully. I was expecting it to be a difficult to understand and not nearly as literary as it was. I can see readers young and old in years to come sitting down to Mr. Einarsson's book, and enjoying it as much as I did.
I did have a problem with the first couple of chapters. They didn't seem to fit in with the rest of the story. Anjan being picked on by kids he went to school with, it just didn't seem to fit. But besides this small indiscretion, the book was beyond reproach!
~~~~~ I'd like to thank Author Marketing Experts for the chance to review this wonderful book.
Thousands of years ago, the universe once consisted of three worlds: the world of Elves, world of Humans and the Hidden world; which were often filled with greed, evil deeds and barbaric wars.

This thrilling and action-centered story in its first serial, tells of a White Witch Kata from the World of Elves who discovers an ancient prophecy foretelling of a great threat that will bring destruction to many nations. Her mission to seek help takes her to many dangerous lands where she encounters the wrath of awaken evils who has discovered part of the prophecy.
Having finally found the boy Anjan in the revelation, she loses her strength and now the task of saving her people and the other nations is left with the young boy. Anjan accompanied by loyal Elves, faces great tribulations and the imminent attack of the evil forces and their ferocious minions as he journeys to face the mighty dragon.
