I found it riveting. Something totally different and a really good story. SK Holder has managed to cross the line between fantasy and reality in a very clever and enthralling manner. The characters are very well written, as is the plot and the whole story line. It’s a highly entertaining novel.”

The Quest of Narrigh by S.K. Holder is a really nice read. The background of the various different worlds is quite fascinating, and holds the potential for a few follow up books (and the title actually suggests that there will indeed be more). I could also imagine this as a fantasy TV series.”

“This story is filled with magic, suspense and strong characters in a well developed plot. The author ensures that readers get to know these unique characters, especially the main ones, by giving each a section of their own. I was drawn into the adventure because of this and enjoyed it very much. It is original and a book I recommend.”
