Scriber by Ben S. Dobson is a fantasy novel that takes place in Kingsland. Dennon Lark is an unlikely hero belonging to the order of Scribers. Scribers are the scholars of the land and are held to a higher order then ordinary citizens.

We find him hiding out in an out of the way town in disgrace where he encounters Bryndine Errynson, the neice of the king. She’s a formidable captain of the army and an outcast as well.

They’re thrown together in subsequent adventures as they try to save the land from a plague of attacks from rebels known as the Burnt. Lark holds the key to stopping the attacks and Bryndine is determined to help him whether he likes it or not.

I found myself enjoying this book immensely. The characters were intensely likable. Bryndine and Lark were vivid and intriguing. Bryndine’s company of female soldiers were equally colorful and I had an easy time picturing each of them in my mind’s eye.

The plot was captivating and enthralling. The twists and turns were enough to keep me reading until the very end. Despite knowing that good would prevail as it always does in books like these, I was guessing at the mechanics until the very end.

I look forward to more novels by Dobson, 5 of 5 stars.
