Mr Mayes does it again, another success, in a different genre, this time fantasy and he has done it as well as he does all of his works.
This is definitely a five star fantasy, ‘The crooked path’ is the story of two kingdoms, separated by a poisoned land, yet still fighting for supremacy. The two protagonists are teenagers, one from each side of the divide. Both side show traits of good and evil and Philip paints a wonderfully in depth world filled with lively and colourful characters.
The book is long, over 700 pages and as with all fantasies now, it leaves you wanting more.
This book, combines the best of all fantasy books and I for one will be waiting, with baited breath, for the second part.
