4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting beginning, 30 Jun. 2009
This review is from: A Darkness Forged in Fire (The Iron Elves) (Paperback)
Chris Evans' debut "A Darkness Forged in Fire" is a rather interesting book. Unlike much of what is out there in the fantasy market nowadays, this book has some innovative ideas, decent, if not completely surprising, twists and a different atmosphere when compared to your average fantasy book. Though there is much room for improvement, the book still left me feeling as if I had liked it, though it is hard for me to pinpoint the exact cause of that. As far as characters go, with the exception of the dwarf Yimt they are all a little cliched. This does not stop the story from being enjoyable, but there is much that could have been done with them which is left unexplored. In the end it may come down to whether you appreciate or not the military atmosphere of the novel and the narrative style.
All around, the book is good, but not amazingly so, and the series has potential.
P.S. My final rating would actually be 3,5 stars, but Amazon does not allow it, and the book does most definitely not deserve 3 stars.
