I have already read most of the 'Will of Agora' series and found them really well written and enjoyed them very much. I purchased Talon, the first book in The Windwalker Archive series some time ago, on the strength of how much I had taken to the Will of Agora books and have just got round to reading it. I was not disappointed. This book is set 200 years earlier than Will of Agora series but it can be read as a standalone. The main character is Talon, a young teen-ager and he brought up by his beloved grandmother as he is motherless and abandoned by his father.

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.

I enjoyed this story very much. It had all the components of a decent narrative, action, drama, spell binding magic, and well defined characters. I love fantasy as a genre and I am glad that I bought this one, albeit on the UK Amazon site. The emotional rollercoaster ride of Talons life, his fears and anxieties, the risks he must take just to survive, all this made for a great and gripping story. I felt his pair and his anger and just wanted him to get free of it. I am happy the story ended on a cliffhanger, it makes it more exciting to read the next book in the series.

Some people have said it's too simple but I think that's the beauty of this story. Having read all the Whill of Agora books, I found this one to be more emotional and sentimental. Although there's a little involvement of dwarves and elves, it focuses on one of the cultures featured in the Agora world, giving a nice bit of context and history. I think this story was very well written with some very touching moments. It didn't feel contrived or unnecessarily wordy and some parts were so vivid that with it being a short book, it had a good balance of action, emotion, characterisation and storytelling. I enjoyed learning about Chief's origins especially.

I was not sure what to expect from this book. Heard good things of the author so thought I would try. I am so glad I did, his writing draws you into a Viking type world of violence and strength and coping against the odds with the help of a bit if magic but the magic is why I read fantasy and I like how it was used. The story demonstrates how the misuse of power and strength corrupts and how fear can be overcome. I debated on the stars but decided on 4 as just a little simplistic in the all good,all evil divide; I am expecting more from his other stories which I am on my way to purchase now.
