5.0 out of 5 stars Great setting to an original series, 27 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Queen of Demons (Hardcover)
This was a great book, I just finished it last night, 600+ pages in 3 nights of about 2.5 hours reading each night, I could not puit it down. The setting is about the most original Fantasy out there when compared with all the Continent spanning Epics out there. (Face it, all the major epics main characters end up trouncing around there home continent for most of the story) Here is a brand new series that has developed a richness in its setting of a few islands (So Far) that most writers can make with their entire world (Jordan and Goodkind are 2 other examples of great authors with remarkably rich settings, but hey, they have got 7 and 4 books out so far, not 1) this book has the potential to surpass these 2 great authors if Drake can keep up his creative flow. I like the entire idea of setting it among islands, this allows for short distances being great cultural gaps and it is remarkable. The only shortcoming is the fact that after Queen of Demons comes out, You wi! ll have to wait at least another year for the next book. And Drake is not afraid to kill off his characters. It is not often that you see one of the coolest characters in fantasy (and he is not a wizard either) get killed, a guy with an ancient king messing around with his head, and a guy who kills demons with his bare hands just a few minutes after he befriends another one! This series promises to be remarkable. Once more a series that goes ages beyond the "Lord Of The Rings"
