As the first of Darwin’t’s group falls, the rest scatter into the night, hunted by an evil that wants to see them dead. Suddenly Darwin’t is faced with a challenged that endangers his own life – will he find the Last Princess, when all he really wants is to return to his quiet and peaceful life?

What Readers Are Saying
From the start the story is brought to life for the reader, his words are used in such a way that you can’t help but imagine the world Baron is creating. It hooked me from the very start. It’s a fantasy book however the characters are realistic and believable, they bring something to recognise and relate to throughout the imagined world created.” – Elizabeth Bell, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
Wings of Light was the first book I have read from Lloyd Baron and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. As a fan of large-scale epics such as A Song of Ice and Fire, I was delighted by the scope of such a brilliant fantasy adventure. This book has it all – edge-of-your-seat tension, spine-tingling horror, humorous moments, touching romance, brutal violence and heroic adventures!” – D.M. Cain, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
I must say that the author is a good story teller. Creating fantasy story is the hardest part for me as an author. I always amaze for them who can create story like this. In the case of Wings of Light, I enjoyed myself reading it. Most of the time I let my imagination fly up. What I like the most is the poetic part of the story. Overall, this is a well written book with great imagination.” – Joannes Rhino, Amazon reviewer ★★★★★
