Shielder's Mark breaks the spell on Ghostwood. This has been a dream since childhood. The legends of knights and heroes who went to Ghostwood, and did not return, were many. He wanted his chance to break the spell. In addition he wanted the reward promised by the King - to ask one thing and have this wish fulfilled.
Shielder's Mark asks for the hand of the princess Gail. Despite his misgivings, the King has to fulfill the promise made to whomever managed to break the spell. So Shielder's Mark gets the princess and a dukehood to support her. One would think that they lived happily ever after, but this is when the story takes off (kind of like real life). Nobody's Son is told in 3rd person and one has to take a sneak preview of the last page in order to know how things turn out.
I enjoyed this book - after all I gave it 4 stars. It has some unexpected twists and some given ones. Some authors are worth trying twice and this certainly goes for Mr. Stewart.

One of my favorite fictional men's books.Reviewed in the United States on 15 January 2014
Sean Stewart's "Nobody's Son" is my favorite fictional "men's book". A book where the main character seeks to make a name for himself by ending the curse of the Red Tower and claiming his reward. It's a book about a journey of manhood that takes the main character in directions he never expected. I've read it several times since I first bought it as "Uncle Hugo's" and have given several copies away to friends. I'd actually give it 15 stars instead of a mere 5.

Not badReviewed in the United States on 8 March 2012
This was a nice short read. Written well and enjoyable for fantasy fans, although, was not quite what I had expected. I, personally, associate magic with the fantasy genre but was disappointed that there was little at all. Overall, a good story and worth reading if you are in between books.
