Today on the Pandragon Blog, it gives me great pleasure to introduce a fantastic author – Amy Lignor – and a quick review of the opening chapter of her new book The Charlatan’s Crown. Book 4 in the critically acclaimed Tallent and Lowery novels. This next book in the series is highly anticipated, so it’s great that I got a first look in!
For this blog, I will do a quick mini review of the first chapter, but first let’s find out a little bit about Tallent and Lowery and the author herself!

Blurb: Fans across the globe jumped on board when the ‘best action/adventure tale since Indiana Jones’ arrived. In 13, the puzzle that no one could solve was revealed, and led everyone to race to their computers in order to discover how on earth this incredible author figured it all out…
In The Sapphire Storm, Leah Tallent & Gareth Lowery took on a new case – a spider web of evil and deceit that would have them piecing together a mystery that began in an old London college; an institution that harbored secrets of a fraudulent author the world still celebrates today, and connected that man to a strange shop in Cairo…exposing the real story of a legend that all knew but no one could ever solve…
In The Hero’s Companion, Tallent & Lowery were given seven days to figure out a puzzle of mammoth proportions in order to save the father Leah dearly loved. But as the web unfolded from Athens to Cleopatra’s Mines, more secrets erupted of a personal life Leah knew nothing about, and unveiled an evil man who wants nothing more than to destroy the Tallent & Lowery team in order to bring back an army that was the worst the world ever saw…
NOW, Tallent & Lowery are headed into a castle that serves tourists every day in order to make their way through a maze to find the parent Leah never even knew existed. She and Gareth will reveal secrets that were embedded in the Third Reich’s reign – secrets that date back to a time far before the evil Hitler had attempted to reign.

Chapter 1 Review
Even in the first three pages, the story hooks you straight away. With a plot that foreshadows the return of an evil empire, magic and a villain that happens to share my first name (bonus points for that!) this looks to be an exciting adventure. I think I would easily add this book to my “to be read” pile based on this one chapter.
Be sure to check out this great novel when it’s released in March. And be sure to check out the rest of the blog tour by clicking in the button above.
