a fantasy adventure series by D.R. Casselman

A strong start to a new series! The “Tales of Narda” are classical fantasy that will reawaken in you the same thrills you felt when you first encountered Tolkien’s Middle-Earth.

Road to Andolan flows easily from one scene to the next. It’s a lot like watching Casselman’s mental movie! I recommended the book to a friend after reading the first sentence. I’m looking forward to getting the next book.

This was an absorbing and fun read. I Couldn’t put it down until I had finished. It kept pulling me forward and I had to find out what was going to happen next. I appreciated that it had a mystical level to it which made it all the more satisfying since it operated on several levels. I definitely recommend it!

Casselman has a strong, crisp writing style that quickly immerses you in an imaginative and powerful world with dire stakes. Be prepared to read all evening, because this story keeps you glued once it gets its hooks into you!

“Road to Andolan,” the first volume of the “Tales of Narda” fantasy series by D. R. Casselman, starts off with a bang! The tale is full of action and adventure coupled with a bit of mystery. You will grow to love the heroes, possibly despise the villains, a little or a lot, and discover some quite unique creatures roaming the land. Be ready to get swept away into this saga that will undoubtedly grow in even more depth as the story carries you off to another world and another time.

What a delightful adventure story! I thoroughly enjoyed becoming immersed in D.R. Casselman’s world of Narda, learning its geography from the map, meeting the characters, learning the language in the superb glossary, and especially finding how to pronounce all the various names. When I read, I “hear” the narration and dialogue, and when there are strange spellings that I don’t know how to pronounce, I enjoy the story less. But the author has provided us with a complete guide to this wonderful world. The first few chapters went slowly as I constantly referred back to the glossary and the map to get my bearings. But now I can pervade this new world, and I’m so looking forward to the next three books in the series!!

“Tales of Narda” dives right into an epic fantasy realm full of compelling characters, rich landscapes, and deep histories… truly an epic adventure worthy of retelling.

One of the most entertaining books I have ever read. I hope they turn this into a movie! Honestly, just dying to get the second book so I can find out what happens next.
