THIS IS A BRAND NEW RELEASE. 

“The End of the Trail” was published less than two weeks ago.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: 

“A barren land of salt and snow; a castle where underground paths twist and turn in endless circles and a reclusive King has not shown his face in years; a forest where few things are what they seem. An unnamed hero must navigate through these places as he takes on the task of tracking down a supposed witch, in a story that blends dream and reality, rumour and truth, danger and hope.”

MY REVIEW: 

Louis Rakovich has created a unique and fascinating world and one heck of a good story.

I love the idea that the people live in a kingdom made from salt. He has even been able to give the reader a sense of history and of the permanence of their settlement.

For a story that only consists of 26 pages, the amount of detail included is incredible. This world of salt and snow could easily become the setting for a full-length novel or for many more short stories. 

Even though the main character is never named, readers will empathize with the struggles he has had to endure throughout his lifetime. This is achieved through skillful writing and the strategic doling out of information. 

The ending was a surprise which is always a good thing.  

I rate THE END OF THE TRAIL as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
