This is the exciting prelude to the 'Tools of Darkness' series, by the same author as the story 'Brighid'.

Come and enter a world of magic and adventure through the imagination of author RD Williams......

 


Excerpt

Geltharin looked out over the hills before them. "I wonder what they are waiting for?"

As if in answer, several brazen horns sounded from beyond the hills. Men and Elves raced back and forth, preparing for another charge, while Geltharin and Delphine braced themselves.

Over the hills two large shapes came lumbering into view. They had the appearance of Men, yet they were at least six spans tall, and they carried huge clubs upon their shoulders. It was hard to tell weather they were clad in gray, or if that was the color of their skin, yet it was no mistaking what they were.

"Stone Giants," breathed Delphine.

Behind the Giants the ranks of the Gremlins crowded, as if behind great siege engines. Geltharin blenched watching them. "Yes, and they do not appear to be on our side."

"How are we supposed to fight them?" Delphine asked, her eyes fastened upon the huge shapes.

Reader Reviews for "The Lost Gate"

Reviewed by Peter Klein 4/5/2014
Imagine if you will, a world of Wizards, Knights, and Elves, then add Gremlins, Goblins ans creatures of darkness intent upon domination through fear and slaughter. Long ago their world was nearly held in sway by a great evil, and now that same darkness threatens to cover all the lands once again.
This is a story for readers who enjoy the realms of fantasy such as are provided by J. R. Tolken.
The story moves at a good clip with frequent skirmishes at the start, which build to frequent battles as the race against the evil forces escalates.
Unnaturally dark and gloomy weather adds a foreboding background as the main heroes in the story, Geltharin and Delphine, trek from one devastated village to another to join with forces who they aid and who will aid them in their quest to stop a seemingly invincible evil. Along the way, a romance of equals develops between these proud warriors of different cultures and races, who must hold their growing love in check to meet the demands of war.
I found the dialog and narrative writing more than sufficient to create the scenes and the characters but sometimes wished the narrative was a little crisper, not because there was anything wrong with the writing but because I was anxious to learn what might happen next.
This is a good and fun read, and I highly recommend it to all who enjoy fantasy.
