But fate is a fickle thing, and for Gilgamesh Row, a dangerous, strange game. For one thousand years a delicate peace has reigned in the land of Ur, a peace maintained by wizards and knights alike. When Gilgamesh inadvertently claims an ancient relic for himself, he sets in motion a series of events, both dark and terrible, that the nations of Ur use for war. Caught in the shifting political landscape, Gilgamesh must enter the mage's castle of RavensKeep, to discover for himself the truth that lies within, and the secrets it may hold. In a race against time, Gil rushes to undo the mistakes of his past, to save the world, or perhaps destroy it.

Immerse yourself in the Chronicles of Gilgamesh Row, where nothing ever happens by chance, not ever, and sometimes the smallest choice can make the greatest difference of all.

a friend recommended this book. loved it. its short, fun and easy to read, yet it really makes you think. at first it seems like a regular fantasy novel, but then the plot starts to escalate at a rapid pace, each time getting more complicated, by the end my mind was racing not stop wondering what was going to happen next. great plot and great descriptions of the lands and the mountains in the book. the whole story is set in a world full of mountains, lots of dangers around ever corner, wolf trying to the main characters at every turn, etc. the author does a great job of detailing how eerier the mountains are. a read a ton of fantasy novels, ussually they get bogged down in tiny boring details. this book doesnt do that. its consise straight forward approached is really refeshing, and says so much more by saying less. loved it. 5 stars!
