Anchor Point by Stan Nicholls

Today I have a review for the second book I read for the Books on the Hill Publishing Kickstarter.


Kye Beven is lacking confidence, and is ruthlessly bullied. Everyone except Dyan Varike, the best archer in the band, believes he is not good enough for the community’s defence. When Kye’s village is menaced by a despotic sorcerer, he reaches for his bow and steps up to the mark and saves his home.

Anchor Point was a great read. Again this is just a short story but it has everything you want from a novel. There was an underlying morale to this story in that despite what you think of yourself, you can achieve what you set out to if you just have faith and I thought that given our trying time this was perfectly timed. I am always drawn to stories involving magic and I would have loved to get more of Niola, she really felt like an interesting character. A well-paced magical story.

Thanks for reading.
