    An engaging tale filled with epic battles and plenty of magic.



    “I was thrilled for this book based on its synopsis: Orcs and Dragons and Adventure bode for an amazing story ready to unfold. And I cannot fault it: a great story did unfold!”

    Reedsy Reviewer – Elodie de Groot


    “The Tome of Syyx starts with an exciting battle scene, dropping us straight into the action. The descriptive writing is terrific:  Saristavros’ character development is solid, with character traits and histories introduced organically throughout the book. His adherence to a character’s viewpoint is also admirable. It is an excellent fantasy novel that should appeal to all fans of the genre.” – Josh Fee

But are dreams only for fools and the desperate? And is she just trading one set of shackles for another?
