This review is from: The Battle of Verril (The Book of Deacon Series 3) (Kindle Edition)
I found all the books in the series enjoyable with a few jarring exceptions in the use of words. Perhaps the D'akaran could have been a little more fully explained along with their reasons for acting as they did and why they wanted to take over the world. The characters of the humans, wizards, and malthropes were well written. The word effect was used many times when it should have been affect. There were more doves flying round than in a medieval castles dovecote. Things don't "dove" to the side or away from something, dive or dived away are the correct words to use. The occassional missed word makes nonsense of a sentence. On the plus side we were not treated to many "gottens" instead of got and no nerve jangling awesomes.
All in all these books are an enjoyable read in which to lose yourself for a few hours. I would like to keep Myn for myself along with the mystival staff of the wizard.
