The Hunter's Gambit is the first novel in the Archanium Codex, an epic fantasy series in which two protagonists, Aleksei Drago and Jonas Belgi, struggle to keep their home nation of Ilyar from being plunged into a bloody civil war even as a 1,000-year-old evil called the Demonic Presence threatens to break free of its prison and consume the entire world.

A truly epic story masterfully narrated.

This is a beautifully written book and, amazingly, the language lends itself to voice interpretation as much as it does to close reading.

The story is indeed huge, full of well developed characters - not just the two protagonists - but many other characters crucial to the story in this book and, clearly, the books to follow in Archanium Codex Series.

Beyond writing characters so real you want to have dinner with them, the world building is stunning and the magic systems are rule based and highly original, placing this epic story in the company of Sanderson, Martin and Tolkien.
