New Elbestran: The First Tale of Spanner by Josh Jackson

An intelligent tale about life and purpose…

Well-developed conflicts, exciting action, and authentic worldbuilding makes Jackson’s latest an intriguing read. An immortal with supernatural powers, Spanner Tenganden is tired of venturing aimlessly centuries after centuries. When he lands in the Elbestran Colonies, a land of settlers struggling under the rule of a tyrannical archduke, he realizes his dream of living an ordinary life is finally in reach. But nefarious forces are at work who would do everything in their power to stop Spanner from realizing his dreams. Jackson tells a story that’s rife on imaginative ideas, backstory, magic, and character study. It’s a little slow to get started, but once it does, readers will be pulled into this well-developed world. Spanner is a recognizable hero. His struggle as he stands against the tradition of autocracy and magic-wielding is portrayed with conviction. This is an appealingly soul-searching epic fantasy that underlines its protagonist’s inherent humanity.
