The Spaces Between
By Martin Gibbs
“We are all complex knots, interwoven and intertwined.”
Qainur and Zhy meet in the local tavern Qainur is a traveling mercenary and Zhy is the local drunk. Qainur manages to convince Zhy to accompany him on his journey north to find a wizard who may be able to teach him magic. Along the way they are joined by Torplug who is on his way home after studying magic at the university. The three end up having to fight for their lives as they are hunted by demons and elite warriors’ known as the Knights of the Black Dawn. Why we travel with the three unlikely companions we are also introduced to Blimb, a simple minded man who is able to talk with Zhy’s deceased father, Zhy’s father begs for Blimb’s help saying his son is in grave danger and only Blimb can help him. But that is only one twist of the knot in this story, we also join Blimb’s father on his journey to protect the temple in the north that is the only thing that stands in the way of a horde of demons over taking the world.
Each story is complex and beautifully interwoven in this novel. At first it seemed a bit slow but the further I got into the book the more I became entranced. Martin Gibbs did a wonderful job, just as I was getting angry with the book Martin Gibbs completely blindsides you and has you wondering what in the world is going on. It was absolutely unexpected and extremely addictive I definitely recommend giving this book a try and if Martin Gibbs wanted to guarantee you would read the next book he could not have ended this one any better.
