April Leonie Lindevald’s “The Last Wizard of Eneri Clare” dazzles as a spellbinding fantasy tale

A New York self-published author’s debut proves that epic fantasy can still be a fun and exciting read even without the violence.

Babylon, New York – WEBWIRE

An epic fantasy novel that highlights faith, hope, love, creativity, intellect, resourcefulness, and community as the best responses against evil!

While people her age were busy preparing for retirement, April Leonie Lindevald was writing and publishing a book. The epic fantasy “The Last Wizard of Eneri Clare” is a culmination of the author’s eight-year ‘labor of love’, published to positive reviews and ratings from Amazon and Goodreads users.

The author’s great fascination for fantasy novels of the J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling variety is integral to the writing of “The Last Wizard of Eneri Clare.” “I am an avid lover of the fantasy genre – books, movies, TV shows,” said the author in “I love being transported to a far-away place and studying the complexities of human nature from a fresh perspective.”

However, she dislikes the excessive use of the angle of violence in fantasy. She is upset that the genre and the culture in general embrace violence so completely. “It seems a default reaction when everything goes wrong: let’s bomb them or let’s shoot them,” said the author. “I noticed in the fantasy genre that good guys defeat bad guys by having a battle and chopping the bad guys up.

“What if there was a good adventure story where the good guys were not allowed to use violence and warfare to achieve their ends?  What would they do instead?”

Taking up the challenge for herself, the author wrote “The Last Wizard of Eneri Clare,” which is devoid of armed conflict.  She describes her novel as “an epic, magical fantasy with a richly drawn world, likable characters, and a twist.”

Indeed, the book has dragons, wizards, magical creatures, humor, a little romance, plus magical battles, only without the violence. The story abounds with themes of community, fellowship, redemption, second chances, hope, and love.

Can good overcome evil without resorting to violence? Can creativity, community, compassion, and wit save the day? Find that out in April Leonie Lindevald’s “The Last Wizard of Eneri Clare.”

Order today through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Watch out for the public display of this captivating, violence-free epic fantasy novel at the upcoming Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 13-24, 2019 at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA.
