Many Thanks to the author for a chance to read and review this book. All opinions are expressed voluntarily.
A fantasy novella, The Count’s Son by Tobias Gavran has an attractive plot. Thomas is grieving the loss of his parents but after a night’s sleep, he wakes up in a place completely alien to him. In the alter universe, his parents are alive and magic rules the world.
With the help of an assistant Aliska, and his friend Tallovan, Thomas understands the daily grinds of this new place and a chance encounter with an alchemist opens his eyes to the truth of his identity. But danger soon follows as Thomas becomes Tom and accepts his fate.
The story is quite interesting and even though it’s a novella, the characters are detailed and I was able to connect to the turmoil faced by Thomas. There are areas like the history of the Wildlanders that required a little more detail into the story but overall, The Count’s Son is a fast paced uniquely plotted exciting adventure of Thomas.
And I hope the adventure continues!
Thomas wakes up in a world that isn’t his. A world where magic and violence are omnipresent, and his parents are still alive. Now the son of a Count, Thomas needs to face the dark secrets of his alter ego, a young man who looked just like him but wasn’t as simple.
