The main characters of this fantasy are very stereotypical, but they're really entertaining. One in particular kept me giggling throughout most of the work. Sometimes the author fails to describe the action scenes as detailed as I would like (ex. When did this guy end up in a tree? I don't understand what's happening.) It was a little bit like playing an old-school video game. Your main characters have a set of attacks they can do, and the battles are very predictable and standard (first one guy goes in, then the next guy attacks, then the third guy attacks, and the underdog hero sweeps in at the last minute to save them all). The group goes from one battle to the next to the next to the next, with lulls of riding a ship or walking through a forest in between the battles. Overall it was entertaining enough, but very very simple and stereotypical.
