The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy
Book Two
C.M. Skiera

Jetsam fled Dwim-Halloe as a runaway orphan, escaping both a zealous bounty hunter and a dragon-obsessed fallen knight. Now, the teenager finds himself a fledgling apprentice to the infamous wizard Seryn Vardan, the Oxbow Kingdom’s most wanted fugitive. When Jetsam attempts a heroic rescue during a foray with his teacher, catastrophe ensues as Seryn is captured and slated for execution.

Jetsam vows to free Seryn from his mysterious captors before his public beheading in the city where they are both falsely accused of murder. With his canine companion, Jetsam attempts a risky homecoming by seeking aid from old friends. Can Jetsam save his beloved mentor from certain death, or will he once again be left homeless and alone with a bounty on his head?

Once again, Mr. Skiera has given us another wonderfully written book.  This is the second addition to the Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy, MIRRORS and MIST.   This is another voyage into a magical world where the magic and wizardry are afraid of and unlawful.  We get to follow Jetsam's life and the orphans.  Once again he is in the middle of turmoil and magical webs.
Seryn Vardan is one of the most powerful wizards and the most wanted man in Dwim-Halloe.  Fate has taken Jetsam and Seryn and put them in the right place at the wrong time.  Seryn is facing a public death after he allowed himself to be captured. Will Jetsam be able to save his mentor?  People are changed with time.  Will any of the old friends be around to hold a front for the orphans and Seryn?  In steps Fate again with a lie that could ruin the very foundations of the magical kingdom.  Will the truth set Seryn and Jetsam free or will they become trapped?  There is evil lurking at every dark corner in the castle.  Will Seryn and Jetsam stay alive long enough to take care of this evil?
The author wrote a book where the reader travels into a world of dark fantasy, emotions and evil fast paced action.  Jetsam discovers he is caught up in deceit and danger once again.  As the reader turns the pages there is one more twist, one more web of the woven tale to the characters lives.  The author gives the reader, adventure, dimensional scenes, sounds you can almost hear, smells you can almost smell and that churning of inner turmoil.  This is an addictive and an epic fantasy that anyone that loves great stories of magic will love this book.

I was given a complimentary copy of MIRRORS AND MIST from the author, C.M. Skiera for my  view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
