Customer Review

on 10 March 2014
Wendigo Fever follows the adventures of 16 year old Errol as he searches for his missing brother in the dangerous world of the Badlands. This book was labelled YA but I felt it was more of a children's book. That is not a criticism of the author; as a kid's book it is brilliant, had I been a younger reader I would have loved it. It is a frolicking, adventure-type fantasy with a fairy-tale feel and as such, a little light for me.

The world-building is the best thing about it. You get a clear idea of the life and history of Wardens as well as the magic system. The names are great too (like Dorsey Carrol, the zombie). A lot of thought has evidently gone into imagining and creating Errol's world. I'm not familiar with the author but I'm guessing he is an experienced writer because the words were always just right. For example, the great imagery of the fire marshes and the Wendigo's lair.

This book is for you if you like heroes battling monsters and you enjoy how the details of magical objects and systems come together (as I do). As the first book in a series it definitely sets up the way for more adventure. I think this book would make a good cartoon!
