5.0 out of 5 stars An overdue review, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beginning of a Hero (Legends of Windemere Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
As soon as you pick up one of Charles Yallowitz' books you are in another world. The immediacy of the present tense grabs you and you are swept away by the story.

Just for starters the various races take you by surprise with some unusual behaviours... if you think elves are all sweetness and light, think again. You wouldn't want to meet one in a dark alley ... or then again, you might...

The world Charles has created is completely believable; the unusual use of the present tense sucks you into the action very neatly, reminding me of the engrossing RPGs from a time when computer games were not all slash and burn, but required thought and the ability to type.

The characters come readily to life and evoke emotion of various degrees in the reader and you begin to engage with them very rapidly, willing encouragement, feeling frustration and often laughing with them.

Like Luke I am not sure that Yallowitz knew what he was letting himself in for now that the book has become a trilogy. But I think he can be just as proud of himself.

Click the Look Inside and start reading.. go on, I dare you!
