In a great new entry into the popular genre of young adult fantasy and an extremely promising start to a new series, The Path of Destiny: The Cremelino Prophecy, Book One by debut author Mike Shelton is a story that will take readers on an adventurous journey they won't want to see end! Follow the story of Darius San Williams, the son of one of King Edward's advisers, and a young man determined to leave the city of Anikari with big plans to bring glory to the realm. His friends Christine and Kelln are there to help him, but when Darius starts to exhibit new powers that he had been previously unaware of, they all realize that their plans may be quite different than they originally intended. Will they be able to meet their ultimate goals? You need to read this book to find out!
I very much enjoyed The Path of Destiny. Author Mike Shelton has done a great job in creating characters that his readers will enjoy, connect with, and even care about. His world creation abilities are second to none, and his ability to describe surroundings is so vivid and great that readers will feel as if they can simply slip through the pages and into Darius' world. Any reader, young adult or not, who enjoys a great work of fantasy with an extremely adventurous story line should absolutely read this book. I highly recommend it, and am very much looking forward to reading the next in the series from the talented Mike Shelton as soon as possible!
