Now, the first thing that struck me is that the world of Tariatla is as somewhat "deconstructed" (as Brian says on his blog) world. As well as having traditional Fantasy elements like magic, monsters, elves, orcs, etc - there are also real world elements, like a job centre, diners, television, even an X-Factor type reality show for wizards! It kind of feels like Earth if it suddenly got invaded by Fantasy monsters. Now, the idea of combining Fantasy with real world is an idea that has been done and in this book it mainly works. But sometimes, the ideas seem to clash with each other and it's almost like it can't make up its mind as to whether the world wants to be Fantasy or not. For the most part it works, but there are times when it felt like the suspension of disbelief was stretched.
Trapped in this strange world, Eric tries to adapt to his new surroundings and eventually gets recruited into the Dragon's Lair as a mercenary, learning to use magic and make money. His team consists of Nolien (who's like the resident bookworm and slightly socially awkward member) and Tiza (the tough, take no prisoners kick ass chick). For the most part, I actually quite liked them - even though I wanted to slap Tiza in a few places! But Balisard, their leader, I thought was pretty awesome.Read more ›
