5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable and easy to read., 2 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Taranor: Destiny: 2 (Paperback)
Book 2 of the Taranor trilogy has been well worth the wait. Reading Book 1 helps but this is still a good stand-alone fantasy yarn where you soon get to know everyone.

It’s jammed packed with amazing and lovable (and some not so lovable) characters up to all sorts of fun and mayhem, mischief and intrigue, and much more. There are some surprising gory bits but short lived and in keeping with the darker elements of the plot.

It’s a heart-warming, wonderful adventure of good versus evil, fought by a myriad of mortals and magical beings, woven through with themes of love, compassion, bravery and tolerance.

It’s beautifully descriptive without waffling on. If it were made into a film, the special effects people would have their work cut out to portray the stunning scenes it plants in your mind.

I really, really enjoyed this and I’m sorry it’s finished. Roll on Book 3.

I love it when a book grabs me on the very first page and this is one of them! By only chapter 2, I had already been sad, laughed out loud and been guiltily pleased when a particular baddie came to a very icky end.

There are fairies, humans, goblins, dwarves, witches, kings, talking animals and so much more. You'll really want to adopt the talking dog! Strangely, you find yourself rooting for the goodies AND some of the baddies.

For fantasy, it has a wonderful balance of humour, excitement, suspense and menace. The darker moments are necessary and exciting but do not dominate, unlike a lot of other fantasy fiction.

The chapters are a comfortable length, plus they are separated into smaller sections, which makes it so much easier to follow for slow readers like myself. A great read.
