    The Wards of Iasos is a wonderfully wrought coming of age story. A beautifully tragic journey of awkward outcasts learning about trust, love, and belonging. Set in a Tolkein-esque land of myriad creatures, magic and prejudice, fantasy fiction lovers will thoroughly enjoy Wilson's masterful storytelling!

    An amazing tribute to the influence of friendship and the opportunities second chances provide. Written with heart, humor, and an insight into what it is like to be an outcast.

    Way to go, Mr W
