Overall I did enjoy this book. Excellent writing style, though a fair number of grammatical errors. Was there no editing before publication? It is a story which held my interest but I did become frustrated by the excessive long descriptions of all manner of things; which slowed down the plot. An over long book which would have been a five star for me with a lot less of unnecessary detail. In the final stages of the book especially, the battles with the dwarves just went on and on and on! To be truthful I became somewhat bored at this point and wanted to get to the next stage in the plot, however, I need to purchase part 2 to find out more of Whill as the book ends abruptly after the dwarves triumph.

I originally bought this book in October 2012 - and decided to re-read it when the next in the series was published. About a third of the way through I realised that I had never finished it - very rare for me! I don't know why I was not engaged by this book - clearly others did not have the same problem - but for me the characters were one dimensional and I did not care about them, so once again I gave up! Obviously this is a matter of personal taste - but don't be swayed by the comparisons to David Gemmell - not in the same league!

I bought this book for a bit of light reading. I absolutely loved it. I really enjoyed the characters and the story line. However I felt the final battle was a little bit rushed. But I would recommend this book to everyone. Well done Michael

Story detail was great, there where times when a repartition crept in, but did little to spoil the just of the Story, and I thought maybe some of the names could've rolled of the tough a bit easier....

I thought the writing a little basic when I first started reading but as I read on I became engrossed in the story. I have read loads of fantasy fiction and thought that this one was very good. I am off now to download the next.

Loving this, not been able to put it down since I started it, every second I am free, which is not often at the moment I am reading more of Whill's adventures. I am so looking forward to getting more into this set when I have the chance.
