Anzel Spectrus: Discovering Yesteryear
A Children of Chaos Novel
by Rachel A. Olson
Genre: YA Fantasy
Anzel Spectrus has been alone as long as he can remember. So long so that he has convinced himself he prefers it that way. At least until he discovers what it’s like to have others in his life.
Mongo the minotaur usually spends his time trying to bully Anzel, until one day he asks for Anzel’s help out of desperation. Mongo’s request leads to Anzel meeting Brucie, who tells him that his aura is the color of a powerful being that seemingly no longer exists outside of a children's bedtime story that Anzel has never heard. The three set out together in search of answers in an attempt to either prove or debunk the details of that bedtime story, and to hopefully find an answer to who Anzel really is.
The question remains, who - or what - is Anzel Spectrus?
Will he get the answers he seeks?
**Only .99 cents!!**
Anzel Spectrus is a young man with strange powers and few memories about his past. He is a bit of a misanthrope and would prefer to be left alone. However, he ends up being thrust together with his former rival Mongo the minotaur and a sticky-fingered pixie named Brucie who just can't seem to stop herself from lifting enticing items. The trio finds a bit of purple shell and are led on a one-of-a-kind adventure as they discover the truth about Anzel and themselves.
This novella will appeal to both youth and adults who feel like outcasts and who enjoy the fantasy genre. Aside from the very interesting story, the thing that I liked best about the book was the way the trio of outcasts, once at odds with each other, comes to discover that they really enjoy one another's company. I really loved the bond of friendship between them.
It didn't take me long to read the book because I was very interested to find out what happens next. I hope that there will be more to the story of Anzel and his friends. I give Anzel Spectrus five out of five stars.
