    Act of Will is a boisterous fantasy adventure that introduces us to Will Hawthorne, a medieval actor and playwright who flees the authorities only to find himself inextricably bound to a group of high-minded adventurers on a deadly mission. Will travels with them to a distant land where they are charged with the investigation and defeat of a ruthless army of mystical horsemen, who appear out of the mist leaving death and devastation in their wake.

    Story


    "Act of Will" is a light weight fantasy which introduces us to Will Hawthorne, young actor/playwright turned most reluctant adventurer. The tale is well written with plenty of vigorous sword wielding and many diverse characters. It would have been good to know more about the backgrounds of Will's companions, but that may happen in future books.

    Will tells the story in his own brash, outspoken, droll way and often works out his thoughts on life and people in theatrical terms and all this makes for pleasant, amusing listening and it is hard to stop when real life intrudes. The narrators, one of whom was the author A J Hartley, were first class.

    I particularly liked the way the character of Will came through - he is streetwise, but in many ways young and naive, at other times wise and intuitive, also very irritating at times. His character expands rather than changes as the book progresses and I look forward to future books in the series to follow his adventures.
