2.0 out of 5 stars A String of Cliches, 30 July 2010
By 
This review is from: Silverheart (A novel of the Multiverse) (Paperback)
Having not read a fantasy novel in a couple of years (preferring historical novels) I picked this off the shelf after having it waiting probably 3 years. Supported by good reviews on Amazon I started reading, but only just managed it to the end. Every cliche was in this book - a race againsts time to collect artefacts, a king's duaghter wanting to rebel against her traditionalist father, an evil sorceress, a mechanical owl (clash of the titans), little people with spears, a reluctant hero who refuses to accept things even when they are blatantly obvious etc.etc. However, I am happy to put with stereotypical characters for a fast paced tale, but this was woefully slow until a rushed ending. Too many pages with characters in discussion without developing them. The most exciting thing was how are they going to wrap this up with only 10 pages to go? Oh, and I remember why I went off fantasy, whenever a character is trapped in a perilous situation he can just use his magic and Hey Presto!
