    1. Standard fantasy fare Sometimes when you are randomly looking for a new author, strolling the Fantasy SF aisle and picking out books that look good, you pick out one like this OK, but certainly not running out to read another of his books.


    2. Let me be clear I do enjoy this book It s fun, albeit formulaic sword and sorcery fantasy That having been said, I can t in good conscience give it than two stars The writing and editing are sub par, and the characters are little better than archetypes Does that take away from my enjoyment of Martin s work Not in the least But J.R.R Tolkien he is not.


    3. Too much following around of characters who were but puppets of the villain I was far interested in Bjorn than Gavin, as well I skimmed through the battles because I knew it was just about him being controlled and starting war after war The only things I did not understand is Valerian s motivation and his purpose.


    4. A powerful and evil wizard from the past gets woken up.Quite a good tale, with some high powered magic from the evil wizard.
