On the longest night of the year, a dark wizard murders a knight and his wife.

The knight’s children survive and swear revenge. Sam and Jamie vow to become knights like their father. Neev, the middle child, vows to become a wizard.

Five years later, things look grim. Sam is useless with the sword. Jamie is denied knighthood because she’s a girl. Neev cannot cast a spell without growing donkey ears, a monkey tail, or an elephant trunk. The siblings feel like failures.

That’s when the dark wizard strikes again.

Are the siblings powerful enough to defeat him? Or will they too die at his hands?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This is a very entertaining yet well-written novel. I adore the characters and, while I was reading the book, found myself wishing to be fully immersed in the story and friends with this lovable group of quasi misfits.

*******

This is my second Daniel Arenson novel, and he doesn’t disappoint. There is a fairy-tale quality to his work that doesn’t resemble anyone else I have read. This book is a light-hearted romp and well worth reading in that context.

I plan to read all of Arenson’s novels.

*******

“Eye of the Wizard” offers a delightful opportunty to get lost in an hilarious world where the reader’s expectations of fantasy novels fade and are replaced with chuckles and giggles. Arenson displays consummate skills and timing from chapter to chapter, without fail. Five stars is a perfect rating for this work, and I was disappointed that my numerous clicks on the page failed to make a sixth star appear.
