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.

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.

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.

Typical runt survives beatings plot that's worked since Oliver wanted more. Here there's lots of beatings, blood and violence and the author could have made more of the parallels to modern society as Pratchett did so successfully but Ploof gives only an isolated island idea. The claustrophobic confines of that idea helps the plot in that the ultimate aim is to escape into loving arms across the sea, hopefully. With some convenient help and a bit of magic, even a magic ring, the runt doesn't die but survives trials and torture to reach the shore at last. But will he reach those loving arms?? Despite the blood falling like rain the plot resists Leslie 'Dracula' Nielsen being on the casting wish list and this reader found the characters engaging and I want to know if Talon finds loving arms on a distant shore. My first Ploof experience encouraged a second so I'll be reading more. Not a children's book due to the violence.

Great book, didn't want to put it down. Nice to find out more about Azzeal and Talon and unexpected characters coming into the story which was great. Know people can be cruel but the viciousness was a bit different but did seem right for the storyline. Glad there was a little softness and friendship against the odds it balances the story. Looking forward to reading the next book and see Talon's adventures and the person he grows into.

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.

This is my favourite book by Michael so far! I read Talon after reading the 4 books about Whill of Agora. Although this is chronologically before Whill they can be read out of order. Don't want to give any spoilers so will just recommend getting it and enjoying!!
