SPFBO 2019 - Phase 1 - Sixth Booknest Semifinalist 02, Nov

It has been my great pleasure to once again to have been invited to serve as an SPFBO guest judge by Booknest. My job has been to review five of the thirty books in Booknest's batch, and forward one of them as a semifinalist. And so, without further ado...

Pool of Knowledge (The Hidden Wizard Book 1) by Vaughan W. Smith 18, Oct

This year I once again have the privilege of being an SPFBO guest judge for Booknest, and today I am reviewing Pool of Knowledge by Vaughan W. Smith, the first book in The Hidden Wizard series, and the last of the five books in my group. Of my group, Pool comes closest to being a classic 'farm boy' fantasy, with a touch of magic school thrown in. Both of those storylines are very popular, and this book might be right up your alley.
