My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Some crude humor, some very unpolished writing [I am almost tempted to ask my cousin, who is a professional editor to go over this for my own enjoyment. I just can’t afford her] but a really good follow up story to The Sword and the Dragon.

I did not see the death of one of the characters near the end coming. While it simplifies and cleans up the plot for the next book, it kind of seemed like an easy out.

But I really did enjoy this story. A good solid fantasy novel and I am looking forward to the final book in this trilogy.

First off, just want to state that I think the author of this book is a complete asshole. I’ve run across him at several online forums and never once was he polite or nice unless everybody was kowtowing to him [which, the net being what it is, just isn’t going to happen].

That being said, this book sucked me in. I read the first chapter and couldn’t put it down. Near the end though things got a little draggy and I was glad for the end [hence the 4 stars instead of 5]. If the author writes more in this direct series, I’ll definitely be checking it out. Highly recommended
