The title didn’t prepare me for the story to come. The Hidden Village starts with a father, Geof Franklin, who goes on a search for his missing son, Josh. During the search, what Geof uncovers will change his life forever.
The author has created a whole new hidden world of gaming and fighting clans placed inside our world. The story pulls you in from the start, and I liked the twists and turns. The one part I found a bit
confusing was the explanation of the clans, but as the story unfolded it all came to light in its own time. The Lord of the Rings fans will be delighted with this book. It encompasses part fantasy, part sci-fi, gaming, the components of a thriller, and ends with you thinking something like this hidden world could really exist.
I highly recommend The Hidden Village by Author Greg Krehbiel, and I’m looking forward to the next book.
