Essence of Gluic is book three in the Altered Creatures series courtesy of Anthony G. Wedgeworth and wow, this series just continues to get better and better book lovers! I admit, with most series I lose interest halfway through, I lose interest because the story becomes repetitive and lackluster, but I can happily write that I have not experienced this yet with the Altered Creatures series! From book one to book three, I have been entertained by the well thought out fantasy and the adventure that unfolds so I hope that the next books in the series continue to be just as exceptional as I have fallen in love with the Altered Creatures books! When I finished book two in the series called Sacrifice of Ericc and read the description of Essence of Gluic, it is safe for me to write that I was excited! The mention of waging war and demons made me dive into the book. Essence of Gluic was the type of novel for me that I did not want to rush, it is the type of book I believe that is best read by immersing yourself in the story and taking your time, picking up on every little detail. It is a spectacular read, and so I hope all of you lovely readers get a chance to read it!
Essence of Gluic is book three in the Altered Creatures series so of course, I have to be careful to spoil the plot of the book because it would then spoil the other two books and we don’t want that book lovers! Fate of Thorik, the first book in the series introduces the reader to the star of the series, Thorik. Thorik in book one is a young sixteen-year-old boy who is thrust on a magical adventure after an encounter. The reader in Fate of Thorik and Sacrifice of Ericc follows Thorik on his journeys and in book three the reader accompanies him on his travels still. In Essence of Gluic, Thorik will be faced with his most significant task yet because he has to prevent a looming war involving unruly demons all while saving his beloved grandmother called Gluic. What follows is an action-packed quest that will have readers bewitched by the story and sensational prose so do not miss out!
The story of Essence of Gluic thrilled me from the start because the talented and well-accomplished author Anthony G. Wedgeworth quickly reunited readers with a world we have become accustomed to over the previous books. Once again Wedgeworth throws his reader into the thick of the story and I admit that I was impressed with the quick build up of the story! Sometimes with a fantasy read there can be a long build up but not with Wedgeworth’s novels, oh no, he ensures that readers do not have to wait for action and I love this approach in literature!
Anthony G. Wedgeworth expresses many writing talents throughout the book, some of them being phenomenal narration and the other being an incredible, well thought out story but personally, I believe his best skill is that of descriptions and developments. The descriptions laced throughout the book are stunning and will charm and amaze readers of any age. The development of the world also is immense, so much so that the reader will be able to picture every perfect detail and that is why Wedgeworth is fast becoming a favorite author of mine thanks to his excellent plot development and unique story.
Overall Essence of Gluic is another superb, unforgettable and original novel in the Altered Creatures series that will compel and captivate readers from the start thanks to the incredible plot development, enigmatic characters, and superb descriptions so I, of course, have to award the book five stars! So please, do have a read of Essence of Gluic, you will not regret it!
