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.

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.

This was an o.k. read but I didn't think there was much of a plot and there were no original
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.

Michael is one of my favourite authors, this book tells the story of Chief the wolf spirit from Legends Of Agora from the beginning in a brand new series.

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.

I cant believe this authour has not been snapped up by publishers. A great tale about a cruel society and a boygrowing up with savagery and isolation only to show his strength of character. His bravery and morality have lead to him being noticed by the spirits. His greatness is foretold. I immediately started book 2.
extremely well written and edited.
