I am so glad I took a chance on this book and this indie author because this book was terrific!! K.J. Bennett has created a whole world set well in the future (called the New Dawn), with a quirky cast of characters that I can just describe as hilarious! Pike is the main character who is told by Moorlock the Warlock that he is destined to go on a quest to save the world - yes, the world! His journey will take him across hazardous terrain, to the Pit of Zidor, where he will claim the heart of a fair maiden, and free Moorlock from where he is trapped. The only problem is that Pike is a very poor, simple teen from a very small village, who knows nothing of the world. He won't have to go it alone though. He is to be accompanied by a horse named Horse and a sparrow named Robyn, both of whom he can communicate with. They are both snarky and sarcastic and the three of them together are so much fun to read about! As if that's not enough, he is being followed by Scarlet Deadnight, an assassin who was sent to make sure that he does not complete his quest. She finds herself growing to admire him, but that only means that she will not torture him TOO much before she kills him instead of drawing it out for her own amusement!

I enjoyed this book so much that I couldn't stop reading it once I started! I seriously blame Mr. Bennett for how tired I am today because I stayed up half the night finishing Pike's Quest!

K.J. Bennett is a new writer to keep your eye on, because I see good things happening to him, and great books coming from him, in the future. If this book is any indication of his writing ability, I will be first in line to read his next book!
