Happen Fell is a simple farm boy who lives on the planet Grith. His family has told him that it is time to embark on the traditional rite of passage for every young boy his age. This requires travelling to the annual trade fair held in another town and showing that he can hold his own with the various traders buying and selling their wares. If he is successful he will prove to be worthy of taking up the family farm and passing it on to the next generation of Fells.

A great first novel by I.W. Ferguson. An engaging read that suits anyone from YA to adult fantasy readers. There are a couple darker scenes in the novel, so I would hesitate to give this to a pre-teen or younger child.

While containing some familiar themes, I was happy to find many unexpected twists and turns in the plot. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series which I hope will explore the mysteries presented but not fully explained in this book.

Enjoyable coming of age tale.

Happen is ready for his summering task (which is like a passage into manhood where he has an important job to prove he is capable of doing things on his own.) His task is to take the wagon to the annual fair where he will sell the family wares, and return with supplies to see them through the next year.
Happen’s cousin Cor joins him on the journey, and they run afoul of trouble almost immediately when Happen’s wagon is stolen, and the boys find themselves in danger of

I.W. Ferguson gives us a fun and interesting coming-of-age tale in Belief’s Horizon. There is some intricate and unique world building here, and some of the story has almost a slice of life feel to it. This all combines for an enjoyable, self-contained read that leaves some possible openings for further stories.

One common trope with coming-of-age tales is that the world that the protagonist is used to gets expanded. Sometimes the protagonist discovers a secret ancestry or finds out he is actual

I especially liked this book for the unique world (or universe, rather) that Ferguson created, and for Happen's coming-of-age story. As a 5th grade teacher, it was interesting a fantasy novel from the perspective of a young adult who is picking and choosing his role models and the bits of wisdom they've provided.

I'm looking forward to the next books, for both the continuation of the story and for Ferguson's continuation as a writer.
