A grand tale.
on 17 March 2013
Having just read this tale of high fantasy, adventure, sorcery and dragons, I felt as if I'd completed an epic journey. David Graham's characters are three dimensional, making it easy for the reader to emphasise with them.
Yes, there're the usual ingredients of high fantasy, such as wizards, witches and dragons, but Mr Graham manages to depict them in a different and unique way. The touches of comedy he employs throughout the narrative, amuse without detracting from the overall story.
The description of the backdrops to the story are excellent, enabling the reader to immerse themselves in the story with ease.
On the whole, the plot and characterisation are well crafted, only slightly married by some repetition in the narrative and dialogue, which given the excellence of the story overall, can be forgiven.
My advice? This book is well worth purchasing and adding to any fantasy buff's library.
