Pleasant easy to read story with potential to grow,
This review is from: The Wand-Maker's Debate (Osric's Wand, Book One) (Osric's Wand series 1) (Kindle Edition)
I read this book today in several hours and initially found it a little hard on the reading. The authors do a great job of describing the scene, but perhaps the descriptions are a little *too* in depth, as an avid reader sometimes I like to imagine structures and scenes using my own imagination and I found constantly changing my own interpretation in my mind to fit the descriptions supplied exhausting ... But I digress ...
I love how the book is pitched to appeal to a varied range of ages, this book could be read to children or read by an adult and would offend no-one, a hint of a love story mixed in with dragons, talking animals and magic? Who wouldn't enjoy it???
The story, whilst unique has a CS Lewis type feel to it. I don't mean in the religious connotations sense, I mean in the strong use of descriptive language and the way the story is told. As a first attempt both authors should feel very proud of their work.
I can only see their storytelling and editing skills improving, there are a few errors in the story, but nothing memorable.
I look forward to reading more about Osric, the maid of Unicorn and Gus.
For note though, the name Kenneth really grated on me and I didn't feel that it suited the fantasy style story.
A solid 4 stars, this is worth anyone's money.

If the name "Kenneth" irritated you, how did you feel about Brian Dumbledore?

Slightly different when the Harry Potter series was set in an alternative modern day England ... Osric's Wand isn't.
