Sinossi

Osric's Wand, The Wand-Maker's Debate is a fantastic novel that captures the imagination and holds on tight. ~The Kindle Book Review

Albrecht and Delay are certainly a couple of authors to keep an eye on...Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings, Narnia... If you have the remotest level of enjoyment from these stories, Osric's Wand will definitely be one for you. ~J Bryden Lloyd

A great novel. Well written and inventive. The authors create a wonderful new world to explore and characters to fall in love with. A book to get lost in! ~ Lauren, Amazon.com reviewer

Osric was content with his life, keeping the peace in a bustling trading town and honoring the tradition of the hunt. All was well in the world of Archana as leaders from every realm gathered to sign an unprecedented peace treaty--when disaster struck. Osric's life will be forever changed as he sets out on a journey to find the culprit behind a murderous attack.

Osric is joined by Archana's greatest wand-maker, an argumentative prairie dog; an Empath and Maiden of the Unicorn; his closest childhood friend Kenneth, an exceptional hunter; and a dual-wielding dwarf with a soft spot for dragons. Soon the companions realize that something more sinister has been brewing for decades, and their long-held beliefs are challenged. They must master new magic and solve the riddles of prophecy, and Osric must accept that the quiet life he dreamed of may never be his reality.

The Wand-Maker's Debate is only the beginning. Look for the other novels in the Osric's Wand series--Book Two: The High-Wizard's Hunt and Book Three: The Well of Strands
Watch for Book Four: The Weaving of Wells coming June 21st, 2016!

Osric's Wand the Wand Makers Debate
by Jack D. Albrecht Jr and Ashley Delay

Osric's Wand is an epic tale of high fantasy Creatures in this world are governed by magic and all communicate to one another; whether they be prairie dogs, unicorns dwarfs, weasels, irua, elves, humans, lions, dragons, or eagles. All are learning their way through the ropes of magic to control and use it. This book reminded me of the epic journey Frodo took with his faithful companion Sam in "Lord of the Rings" series of books. Readers of that series will love this book as we are taken on Osric's journey of peril and self-discovery to find the culprits who have disrupted Archana's worldwide peace treaty with an explosion and save the world they know. Osric realizes that with the explosion killing some at the conference and disrupting the treaty signing each world leader will now blame the other; as they do not know where the danger came from. Osric is young and new at leadership but he has great gifts that can help him in his quest to find out the truth behind the explosions and how to prevent war He is not aware of these gift or how to use these gifts but he is willing to learn; something a reader will enjoy as the hero has to find his way. Osric is young brash but has a great capacity for compassion and leadership though he is unaware of his abilities at first. His steadfast companion Kenneth (his Sam)Gus a prairie dog wand maker (his Gimli and Gandalf all in one challenges him and has a gruff adversarial stance. As well as Pebble Kenneth's son and Bridgett an empath and Maiden to the Unicorns who join Osric to become his steadfast companions. Each help Osric to try to achieve the goals set . Together these brave creatures set out on a perilous journey to save their world. Each will bring their own strengths to hopefully achieve their purpose.
There are so many intricate layers to this story that will keep the reader wondering what will happen next. This book will appeal across the board to readers of all ages who enjoy a great epic story. I was not a big high fantasy fan before reading this book but I have to say these writers engaged my interest with their characters and I was able to picture it all.A truly enjoyable the writers captured my interest from the first page and never let it go.
Five stars out of five.

HASH(0x9d24ece4) su 5 stelle Truly Epic! What a nice surprise 22 febbraio 2012
Di Cali Reader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I don't generally read fantasy novels that don't have a 'romantic' theme so I wasn't sure what to expect when I started Osric's Wand. Within the first chapter I was intrigued by the characters and wanted to know more. Within a few more chapters I was totally hooked. I was very impressed by the writing...it was creative and imaginative without being too "fluffy". I was easily able to pick up the personalities of the characters and I enjoyed learning more about them and the world they lived in. There was tension and drama but in general it was a great read that I know my kids would enjoy as much as I did. This is how epic tales begin...

I hope they have a sequel in mind because I would like to see what happens next and maybe I'll get a little bit of that romance after all. hint, hint to the authors. ;-)

I felt the book was light entertainment and meant for an early teen audience. I also felt it was worth the modest price I paid for the day of reading. Slight spoilers follow: however, I had a difficult time with the world the authors created and this is what gives the book 3 stars at most in my opinion. The authors didn't do a good job of fleshing out who was actually sentient in this world. Are all animals sentient, or just prairie dogs, lions, etc? And it defies logic that everyone would be ok with being hunted for food. I think that you would have either a vegetarian society or you would have war. If a lion killed my family (like Osric's), I think I would be more likely to go out and kill that lion so he didn't kill any more people than think that my parents and siblings were part of some natural process. And how could anyone be ok with the possibility that a peasant farmer may kill and eat the greatest wand maker (a prairie dog) the world knows (wouldn't he be protected)? If you can believe this premise for a world society, then the story may be a 3.5 to 4 star read for you, but it was just too "cute" for me to stomach. I also agree with another reviewer that found Osric slightly dense and that the book ended abruptly.

I don't even know where to begin! I don't want to spoil the story for anyone who hasn't read it so I'll try to write this review without spoilers. No promises :-P. First, I need to say that I really really hope there is a sequel coming! I kept looking for more pages when there were none left. Second, I need to say that the creativity it had to have taken to write this story really has me flaberghasted. This is, by my experience, a truely original story with unexpected twists about every other page. I'm pretty sure my husband thinks I've lost my mind talking about "I can't believe it ended up being a paun " and "how will Osric free the dragons?" This really was an amazing story that took me on an adventure I didn't expect. I'm honored the authors allowed me the privilege to read their story and I will definitely be recommending this book to everyone I know!

HASH(0x99c9f8d0) su 5 stelle Unbelievable 18 marzo 2013
Di Grant Stephenson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I really tried to give this book a shot. First off, the product blurb doesn't mention talking animals. I assumed (falsely) that the high number of five star reviews indicated that this would be a good book. It was a mismash of furry magic weirdness.

Secondly. The main character's parents were eaten by a talking, sentient lion. O rly? The reaction of the main character to this was unbelievable and tainted every future interaction. Additionally, the reasoning behind it all (lion cubs needed meat) was also seemingly inconsistent, being that if you have sentient lions that talk with humans in cities (a few pages later this happens), there wasn't an alternative to what was, in my eyes, cannibalism?

Then, the main character thanks the lion that ate his parents, for bringing back a sword and a few bucks, instead of saying, "Hey man why didn't you eat the horse?"

I'm sorry but this is pure and utter garbage.

Then all this is passed off as some hunter ritual thing. Yeah right. It's stupid. If you enjoy talking animals and people that thank lions for eating their parents then this book is for you.
