The Lodestar of Ys - Amy Rae Durreson
It’s hard to imagine that a one-hundred-thirty-eight page novella could be described as epic, but that’s exactly what The Lodestar of Ys is, set in a larger-than-life world where ships fly and islands float; where two heroes rush headlong into the fray to battle the enemy, not because they are fearless but because they are fearful that if they don’t it will mean the end of existence for the people they love and live to serve. It is a book filled with impressive imagery and ambitious storytelling that reads like a legend to be passed down from generation to generation, chronicling the story of how two princes who met as mere boys, evolved from enemies to husbands by way of politics, and went on to save the world.
