Well, here we are on Friday, again. My, but the week has flown by. As you all know, I don’t normally read fiction. There are times when what we normally do and what we do are not the same thing.
This week, the book I am reviewing is Call Me Luciano by Lauren Mariah. This book is geared more towards young teens, but I think even us older people can enjoy this book.
Here is the excerpt from Amazon:
A lighthearted fantasy novel for Young-Adults... however old! Call Me Luciano follows the journey of Wilfred, heir to the Baron of Oselisle.
When ordered to marry by his overbearing father, Wilfred finds himself accidentally transported to the fairest of them all. The fairest is delighted, he's to busy being just to find the long-lost heir to the throne of Meloberg himself.
Wilfred knows nothing about questing? No problem. The fairest of them all stoops to injustice and sends his horse along. The problem there? Luciano declares himself the greatest voice in six centuries. Far be it from him to be either pleasant or helpful.
So begins the journey to find the lost Princess and rescue Meloberg from the tyrannical reign of the usurping King Verllin. The young man who can't do anything learns how to take care of himself, fights bandits, rescues a fair maiden from death, evades the man who wants him dead, and most unexpectedly finds himself.
An entertaining, wholesome read, Call Me Luciano keeps people laughing to the last page!
Let’s now take a look at the book beginnings
The young man slipped furtively through the back door and closed softly it behind him. He looked quickly in each direction before crossing the hall and creeping up the back stairs. Noiselessly and hurriedly, he stole down the carpeted hallway until he came to the fifth door on the left. Pausing, he glanced around again, opened the door and stepped quickly inside, shutting it silently behind him.
Wilfred finally found a bush with edible berries. He crouched down and began hungrily stripping them off the stems. This was the most food he had eaten since breakfast the day before. He had skipped yesterday’s lunch to avoid Arthur, who lingered for a very long time in the dining room.
I have enjoyed this book. I know you will, too. It is full of action, adventure, and a little comedy. Read the book and let me know what you think. Order your copy today!
