A man wakes on a frozen battlefield when a scavenging couple finds him among the dead. As they nurse him back to health, he is struck with the horrible realization he can’t remember who he is or anything about his past. Taken in by the kind pair, he begins helping with their farm. She even takes him to meet her family, especially her single sister. The ideal life offered in the high mountains of Winigh is shattered when he sees a transport bringing enemy monsters to the shores below. Cut off by high snow on the pass, their fate will soon be the same as the town his company failed to protect in the last battle, if this estranged soldier cannot help them fight off the next wave of invaders. Even worse, the people of the town don’t trust this Selene soldier. He has a strange resistance to their folk magic which some say make him as dangerous as the enemies preparing to destroy them.
‘Salvation’ by James Wymore is a gripping fantasy tale, full of action, suspense and romance. I liked the magic system the author invented, I think it was pretty unique and I was interested to know more about it. The characters could’ve been more developed, but overall I found them appealing. Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I will look forward to reading other books by James Wymore.
