Talon suffers from low self esteem and feels hopeless about his future as an adult. He feels he just does not fit in anywhere. He is not wrong in his judgement and is soon condemned into cruel slavery.
No more details about Talon's journey and the various challenges he faces. Within the culture he lives in, there is magic, mystery, fear conquered, the strength of friendship, and the corruption of misused power et al. It is quite an easy book to read but Michael James Ploof writes beautifully. His focus on "what makes people tick" and his excellent characterisation meant for me, that it is well worth reading if you are into fantasy. I recommend it.
ideas on the use of magic, etc. Once 16 year old Talon moved to the slave village it became a bit
repetitive with the beatings, whippings, being knocked out, etc. Also we were told several times about
Talon's unhappy childhood where he was despised and bullied and had no friends other than his wolf pup, Chief.
Talon is a Barbarian, but they do not allow anyone in their tribe who is under 8 ft tall at
16 years of age, or has any physical disabilities - even down to a hair lip. These misfits
are cast out to live in a slave village and are treated as animals. They can even be killed
at the whim of their Barbarian "masters". So Talon, born premature and never catching up
in height, is rejected by everyone except his grandmother.
In the slave village he falls in love and finds friends for the first time in his life. But after
suffering many beatings from "chief slaves", he plans to escape the island and make a new
life for himself and his friends.
The book is the first in a series about Talon, but it could be read as a stand alone book. Perhaps
the next one will have more of a plot.
Well written, an excellent read, if you love epic fantasy authors like R A Salvatore, you will want to buy this and not put it down again till you finsh.
extremely well written and edited.
