Sean McGuire is a man without a hometown, and a man who has a story to tell, just like you.
In 1992, he was born to a Roman Catholic Marine officer and an ex-Methodist lady. In his childhood, he moved with them between California and Virginia multiple times. They wound up in Milwaukee when his father retired from the Corps to get a theology degree, and in Montana when a college hired him as a professor. Sean graduated from high school there, and went to Kansas to study English at Benedictine College.
He's been influenced by J.R.R. Tolkien, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Andrew Lang, Mel Gibson, Flannery O' Connor, Peter Jackson, Edmund Spenser, John Milton and many other fine storytellers. Nothing touches his day like a good story.

This is an amazing coming of age tale. Arman behaves as any of us would in his situation-- he's lost, confused, and unsure of himself. But instead of moaning, he tackles his challenges head-on and learns what he needs to so that he can unite the people of his world. At the end, when he takes command of the fort, we see the powerful leader emerging from everything he's gone through. Can't wait for the next installment!

I truly enjoyed this book. McGuire does a great job of showing Arman become a man and take his rightful destiny. A lot of the plot twists took me by surprise, and kept me reading. At several points, I wouldn't put it down. He does a nice job of showing relationships change and develop. I look forward to reading the next book he writes.
