Good grief - a fantasy story that grabs your attention..!,
This review is from: Wolfblade: Wolfblade trilogy Book One (Paperback)
At the risk of mis quoting this normally I would avoid Fantasy novels like the plague and not touch them with a 10 foot orc spear - but , this is very different. Yes, there are elements of magic (but not too much) but this fair cracks along with the story being the efforts of a young princess a) to survive , b)protect her family and c) maybe marry for love. You hardly get the chance to get to know some characters as you think that they will be main characters throughout the story and nope.. dead !
There are some definate story lines to be unravelled at the end (I've moved onto the second in the trilogy this weekend) but while there is plenty of action its the portrayel of the characters that I liked. People you could identify with , and a sense of humour (Lord of the Rings characters seemed very serious to me..- all the time)
In short a great read , good paced story - a definate cut above the rest
