Web of Deceit: Book Three of
Forgotten Legacy by Richard S. Tuttle
the read ……. Highly Recommended
Filled with lots of adventure, excitement, magic
and intrigue "Web of Deceit" is the third in this well
developed series produced by writer Richard Tuttle. "Web of
Deceit" is filled with the same admirable clever writing,
collection of appealing characters and well wrought story line we
have come to enjoy in the previous works. Dialogue is snappy, often
tart, and fiduciary as the various characters interact with one
another. Situations are developed in a plausible manner by writer
Tuttle. Battle scenes are filled with enough magic and stress to
please the most discriminating reader of the genre.
The reader is drawn right into the narrative
offered in "Web of Deceit" from the opening scene as we
peer down upon the decimated army standing along the Qu River.
Tuttle's excellent descriptive writing keeps the reader moving on an
exciting clash of emotion as Rejji and Mistake meet first one
adversity and then another until at last the book ends on a
satisfying, not wholly predictable note.
"Web of Deceit" continues the
excitement we found in Tuttle's Young Lord of Khadora and Star of
Sakova. Those who relish the genre will enjoy Web of Deceit.
Synopsis: (May reveal
much of the plot)
Because Rejji collects teeth from the sea to earn
money for his village he is not present when the small community is
overrun and destroyed. Upon his return to the hamlet Rej discovers a
young woman hiding in the well. She tells him she is hiding from the
Red Riders who destroyed his home and slew everyone he knew.
It is time for Brontos the trader to return and
Rej and Mistake set out with the old man when he arrives. Brontos
warns Rej that he should not bury the dead; it will only alert
someone or something that there was a survivor and that can prove to
Rejji and Mistake leave Brontos as they continue
on their journey to find the Sage of the Mountain. The pair meet
another youngster, become the property of slavers, meet the Sage,
and begin a new life none of them realized they might know.
