Robert Eaton’s first dip into the writing world has come up aces! The Hero Always Wins is a wonderful fantasy tale that brings to mind many of the epic tales that we have seen on the shelves with a major difference. Eaton’s story deftly weaves magic, horror and fantasy into a outstanding story that immediately pulls the reader in and holds you until the very last word. There are so many twists and turns that help to keep the story engaging and keeps the reader on their mental toes!
Our hero, Darcy, is a new knight and longs to save his lands and people. The frustration he feels at being able to help everyone is palpitate and his struggles as he adjusts to his role as The Hero. The mystery intertwined within the story only serves to make the reading more enjoyable. I was completely hooked and I eagerly await the next installment in the series. This novel is a great first book from an up and coming author. I highly recommend it for anyone who is a fan of great fantasy.
