Review of PROPHET OF THE PENTACLE

                                  PROPHET OF THE PENTACLE
Marilyn D. Privratsky
Outskirts Press, 2009
ISBN:  978-1-4327-4301-7

Many years ago, a great evil, Lord Jarden, was defeated and imprisoned by a sphinx, which he had mortally wounded.  Lord Jarden bides his time on the Isle of Ice, until Randye of Corpus arrives and unwittingly, sets him free and becomes his host.  Luckily, five Osarian Knights have been trained by the great sphinx, Farro, to battle this evil, which was foretold.

PROPHET OF THE PENTACLE is a short, fantasy story, which has some exciting moments and shows promise.  Unfortunately, there isn't enough detail to get a real feel for the world or the characters within it.  Just as I was beginning to become involved with a character or situation, the resolution came about much too quickly and left me feeling slightly disgruntled.  That is not to say, that there is no redeeming qualities to this work, because it has the makings of a great epic fantasy.  All that is required, is more world-building and editing, and this could really be a great tale.

NOTE:  I was sent this book in return for an impartial review.
