This is most definitely a beginning novel to a trilogy, it's leading up to the bigger story that is going to happen in the second and third novels. That being said, it does an excellent job setting that story up (should have probably stayed away from the classic Arthurian love triangle though) for what is coming. It is well written, has tons of action, a tad of mystery, and more magic than most. For those that love kender, a third of the novel takes place in the kender land of Hylo, so there are plenty of pesky kender. But still it was a set up novel, so don't expect it to be one full novel with another episode coming, it answers almost no questions, and if you can't go without them I suggest waiting until the second Ergoth volume comes out.
Final Thought: They named a monster XimXim, what's next WakaWaka?
