Will Karl find his real home before he's captured and killed?
Karl is okay floating through life. He does nothing well and a lot badly and hasn't found his place, but it's fine, because he lives in Flowforn where nobody has to do anything, so most beings choose to drink.
Sadly, things change when a bizarre tyrant, Arazod, invades Flowforn and Karl finds something else he's bad at - heroism. He's imprisoned and sentenced to death, but his friend, Princess Sabrinia, frees him.
When on the run from the only place he's ever called home, he learns he isn't who he thinks he is and that there is a portal to his real home. He needs to find the portal before Arazod finds him and kills him. So his adventure begins - an adventure that Karl doesn't want to have, and one that will change his life, forever.
International Emmy nominated writer, Mark Boutros, brings you a warm, humorous and sometimes dark fantasy about friendship; featuring magic, monsters, morons and more.
PRAISE FOR HEROES OF HASTOVIA:
"The story is stuffed full of interesting and creative ideas, much more than a typical fantasy story. For example a likeable young lady called Questions, who can't make statements, but can only ask questions. She's from the Inquisos tribe, who struggle to have a normal life due to the difficulties of communicating. I particularly liked the idea of "Tortured Souls". If someone strong is tortured, rather than dying they escape by shrinking to become a small creature, a head with tiny legs. They don't remember much, but if anyone says their name to them then they get restored to their normal self. That's a good way of writing - take a common idiom and twist it to have a fantastical meaning." By AVID READER - Amazon Hall of Fame top 50 reviewer
"The story has the perfect balance of fantasy and comedy, making this book an unputdownable page turner... I still don't know what an eye sneeze is, maybe one day i'll know. If you like Roald Dahl and Terry Pratchett, this is for you!" ...
