Oberon's Dreams (The Godlanders War), by Aaron Pogue

"I don't know how else to describe this novel except for... fun. My initial distaste of standard fantasy fare was washed away in the sheer rush and delight of the story and its characters. Pogue's writing is simple, quick, and personable, just right for a story that wants to do little more than entertain with its fantastical ideas and world that is, if seen before, certainly appreciated. Those looking for overly complex worlds and ponderous, descriptive writing may want to search elsewhere, but for those wanting only a great fantasy story that is told well will be pleased." -- Amazon reviewer

Corin has never imagined something beyond his wildest dreams…mostly because he’s confident enough in himself to see his wildest dreams come true. And for the last three years, his goal has been the riches of the lost city of Jezeeli.

And after a long, arduous search, his journey has finally found its destination.

The problem is, the dashing, quick-witted leader promised his men that they would be rewarded for those three lean years with unimaginable treasure, but the ancient ruins hold no gold or jewels—only stacks of strange books. Left to die in a fire set by his mutinous crew, Corin is mysteriously rescued and transported back in time to a city ruled by King Oberon.

Stuck, only Oberon has the power to send Corin home. But the tyrant Ephitel—a brutal god whose name strikes fear even in Corin’s time—has designs on Oberon’s throne. Can Corin defeat the mighty Ephitel and change the course of history?

With a supporting cast of mystical druids, a gentleman thief, and a banished courtier from the House of Violets, Oberon’s Dreams is an action-packed, richly imagined adventure fantasy from the author of The Dragonprince trilogy.
