Review: Dragma's Keep

25786656 Dragma's Keep by Vance Pumphrey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Valdaar’s Fist. Forged by mortals. Enchanted by Drow. Wielded by a god. Lost by man. Or was it?

A band of unlikely adventurers embark upon an epic quest in this first book in a four-part series, battling minotaurs, demons, orcs, and wraiths—and occasionally themselves.

Surely they must prevail…because the very balance of power in the land requires it.

In Dragma’s Keep, Vance Pumphrey weaves a lyrical and magical tapestry that sets the stage and whets the appetite for the next adventurous fantasies that comprise his Valdaar’s Fist series.

Vance Pumphrey traces the evolution of his high fantasy novels from his Nuclear Engineering career in the U.S. Navy—not an obvious leap. He started playing Dungeons and Dragons in the Navy, though, and the inspiration for Dragma’s Keep was born.

Dragma’s Keep is the first in the Valdaar’s Fist quartet. A second series follows soon.

Retired from the Navy, Pumphrey lives in Seattle with his wife of thirty-plus years.

I have never played D&D, but this book looked interesting so I thought I would give it a try. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Well written, and I had no trouble to keep up and understanding the setting and characters. If you are a fan of fantasy, or are looking to read more fantasy, this is a great story, and I'm excited to read more of this series!
