Great Tolkien inspired books
Read all the books. They are a slow burn but worth the wait. Obvious nod to Tolkien works but that’s a positive. Good character development and in depth plot that grows. Lots of elements that all link. Yes it’s good versus evil but Can’t fault it. True high fantasy classic non of your childish Rowlings works. Writer sadly died before completing series.
Love the series. My paper back books are at my parents. So I have begun rereading them all on iBooks ready for book 14 in January.
An epic tale of nothingness
During the 1980's I remember getting a box of breakfast cereal which contained one of those little plastic moulded figures in a garish colour as a promotion for the movie the Black Cauldron. That generic lump of plastic was a much more believable and well rounded fantasy character than anything contained within this turgid derivative offering.
Derivative and terribly clunky, it almost feels more like an overly elaborate and mean spirited prank meant to subvert the pulp fantasy genre. Unfortunately it's not a joke. There are 13 more books. Wait..
