Ignatius and the Swords of Nostaw by D. A. Mucci

Book Description:

Ignatius and the Swords of Nostaw is the first in an action-packed series perfect for readers who love an impossible mission led by an unlikely hero.

The coming-of-age story follows teenager Ignatius (nicknamed “Iggy”) who finds himself transported to a medieval world filled with magic. In the Kingdom of Skye, Iggy develops special powers and accomplishes quests in an effort to find his way home, fighting the evildoers along the way. While the genre is fantasy and the setting includes magic, mythological creatures, celestial races, and different lands, action-adventure is the undercurrent of the writing style, unveiling clues and surprises as the plot unfolds.

This YA fantasy is perfect for both teens and adults, as it gently reminds us that we are responsible for our destiny - and the most unexpected people can be the best teachers.

My Thoughts:

This was a really good read.  Iggy isn't having the best of times in high school and there are some uncomfortable issues going on.  But he doesn't know who he truly is and suddenly he is in the Kingdom of Skye.  There is a lot going on in this book and it has plenty of action.

I loved that the author put a lot of thought and effort into the Kingdom of Skye.  You can tell the world building here was done well and I enjoyed it.  There are twists and turns in the plot and it kept me guessing and reading.  I loved that it was a larger book so I didn't feel that the story was rushed at all.  I'm ready to read the next one!
