Sometimes, Something Special Comes Along.

Something Like 'HOME' From A Master Storyteller

& A Book You Won't Forget!


Everything depended on her!


Agben had stood for a thousand years. A mysterious school housing more than students, it was the seat of the powerful Women of Agben, and the center for harnessing the potency of herbs. Few knew all that transpired within the walls. And now Marra stood at its gate.


With friends and support stripped from her, the fragile life she’d built for herself now lay in tatters. And the source of this evil hunted her like a deer culled from the herd. The gateway before her was her only hope.


For as the city itself crumbled, all depended not on a prince trying to save his people, nor the valiant men who’d brought them this far. Everything depended on finding a magic powder in the vaults of Agben itself. Everything depended on her.


The games continue and destinies evolve in The Agben School, Book 2 in The Legend Of The Gamesmen series from author Jo Sparkes. An absorbing, assured and rich sequel to The Birr Elixir the premise of the books is both clever and original. Drawing you in from the first page, the magical elements are particularly well thought out and integrated into the fabric of the world Sparkes has created, whilst her narrative is deep and engaging. For followers of the series this will come as no surprise. Sparkes isn’t one to pen unwieldy tomes, but she does excel in the detail. Her characters are highly engaging and you can really identify with their back story, no matter what their affiliation, whilst with every page turned you develop a greater appreciation of how detailed and well thought out her fantasy world actually is. From magical lore to prevailing politics the continuing struggle between order and chaos is simply enthralling.


A wonderful series with much to hold the reader’s attention, The Agben School proves The Legend Of The Gamesmen series is an epic saga in the making. A must read for Fantasy fans it is recommended without reservation.
