This book takes place in a fantasy world where dwarves, elves, dark elves, gnomes, dragons, and many other mythical creatures live. Oh ya and humans are there too.
When I began reading this book I was not fully hooked on it. While I enjoyed the adventures, I felt like it was a little rushed and I found myself trying to keep straight all the names, and races of the characters along with their many varied abilities. I also spent a long time asking myself, 'what is the point of all this?'
I did struggle to get into the book, but by the end I liked the story and I liked how the author takes the events that happened at the beginning, and tied things together in the end. When I finished I was able to feel like I read a very satisfying adventure story with potential to have some good sequels.
I think taking time to slow it down, and focus on character development would have strengthened the book significantly but overall it was enjoyable.
