Top critical review
A little too formulated
on 5 September 2012
To be honest this is a hard book to review as since I'm a huge fan of the fantasy genre I tend to remember what I've read previously. Whilst this is more a young adult series, for me I've noticed the obvious homage to Lord of the Rings alongside multiple other titles in the Forgotten Realm's series that have had a thief as a lead character with the book feeling more like a cross between a roleplay production.
Don't get me wrong it was fun and if read as light entertainment its OK, but if you want something new or innovative then sadly you're not going to find it here. All in the series was reasonable and will be one to give to young readers to generate a story for them to enjoy before they're ready for Tolkien.
