Curse of kings Book 1
Trials of Oland Born

HarperCollins Childrens books

I love the way some trailers have the power to make you run out and buy books. Great for reading but not so great for the pocket. This trailer is one of those. Very well done and great music too.
This is a new fantasy adventure series where fourteen-year-old Oland Born lives in dark times with an evil leader, the tyrant, Vilius Ren. The kingdom of Decesian was once prosperous, lead by the good King Micah and a good place to be but Vilius and his army have destroyed all that. Oland is a servant to Vilius. Always being watched it is no life for Oland.
It is the appearance of a letter from the dead king and a warning to run that prompts Oland to take on a dangerous quest to put things right and restore the kingdom. He must enter supernatural forests, fight off terrifying hybrid creatures and monsters. And of course there is the girl – Delphi – perhaps his best ally but with her own dark secrets can her trust her?
