Review is by Molly
The narrative opens as a terrified old man races over roots and stones. Pursuing him are those determined to wrest the map he carries from him. Behind the aged man is a hulking shadow accompanied by twenty men clothed in black and wearing metal masks over their faces. The old man is not just an aged human, he is a Nomadin who has taken a human form. A Prophesied Child, magical beings, a witch, a Swan and a terrifying Nephalim all figure in the unfolding tale. Treachery, runes, life, death, more than one sword and a prophesy fulfilled will be revealed before the tale is finished. The tale ends with farewells, hope and the beginning of a journey.
Once again writer Cormier captures the essential quality of the genre to produce one more zestful, fast paced text. As with Cormier’s first work ‘Nomadin’, ‘Nidemon’ is certain to enchant readers of fantasy; kids and adults alike. Personalities we encountered in the first book reappear in the second as the reader is carried into the anecdote from the opening lines. Reader involvement is retained in this gripping page-turner through the exercise of well-drawn scenarios, kid friendly conversation, innovative and appealing characters who engage in plausible jocularity as they encounter the predicaments of each day.
NiDemon is filled with potent motivations, deception, and abundant twists and turns to fascinate the most perspicacious reader. Readers are treated to lavishly portrayed milieu, peppery dialogue, fiduciary circumstances and characters to have affection for and those to despise.
On the pages of NiDemon the reader is offered a well written account in which novelist Cormier deftly sets down a remarkably masterminded narrative occupied with bewitching perplexity, plenteous discord and unfamiliar civilization. Characters continue to be advanced and fleshed out as Cormier moves forward his absorbing and galvanizing series.
NiDemon is a must read for all who take pleasure from a razor sharp, comfortably read anecdote set down in an obvious skillful writing technique. Excellent pick for a long summer afternoon spent reading and lazing away the day in the shade. NiDemon is must have for the home pleasure library, school and home school reading list and personal reading list.
