THE CHOSEN OF AZAR: THE FIFTH AGE CHRONICLES


CAROL KLUZ

Published by WestBank Publishing

Fantasy

April 2007
ISBN#: 0978984005

Five teens are chosen by Azar to save their world from the five disciples of the evil brother of Azar, Condragon. This is the first of a series in which Commanders of Haven's Hold, the Azar fortress, bring the chosen ones to the fortress. Their journey is itself training for the fierce forces that are only a shadow of what they eventually will face in their quest to save Azar's world.

Meet Mo Demz, a wizard whose wisdom is perfect for each situation, whether that be the quelling of a rebellious nature, disobedience under the guise of logical action, or the necessary reminder to the Commanders that they need to always be conscious that these are teens but also the hope of humanity.

Watch Beni, Dell, Vina, Jenda and Dane who are being prepared for the ultimate quest against the wolf-like Churls, mysterious and invisible shadows that can kill in a second, swamps filled with devilish creatures, and so much more.

They must find their magical talisman that will aid them in moments of need with divine power. Will they find the objects and hold them safely?

Will their appreciation of their powers bind them to the sect at Haven's Hold? Will they be ready for the Rites of Passage to complete their training?

Carol Kluz has written a young adult/adult sci-fi novel that will thrill lovers of the genre - and the reader may find him or herself imaginging these amazing scenes in what would make a terrific movie!

Very nice work, Ms. Kluz!
