The war horn blows for freedom, John’s father, Lord Cayson said. And in The War Horn, freedom is just what John finds himself fighting for.
In one fateful day, John’s life turns upside down. His parents have disappeared – captured by Lord Gair – and the ransom note demands a payment more costly than anything he could ever have imagined.
The Holy Grail.
In order to free his parents, John must undertake a dangerous quest that will challenge everything he believes. But if he should succeed in finding the Grail, can he really hand it over to a man as evil as Lord Gair? And if he does, will Lord Gair keep his promise and release his parents?
J. Tobias Buller, or Jake, as he frequently goes by, weaves a fascinating tale in The War Horn. This is Jake’s debut novel and at times, more noticeably in the beginning, it did read just a bit like a first novel. But, as the book went on, the writing definitely improved, the plot thickened, and the story sang!
I found myself reading faster to find out what happened next. And when the climax came, I held my breath. It’s a book full of adventure with double crosses and treacheries at every step. Jake does a great job of transplanting you, the reader, into the head of his main character, John, and allowing you to truly bond.
As a writer, Jake shows a lot of promise. I highly enjoyed reading The War Horn and I look forward with great anticipation to any books he writes in future.
