Customer Review

on 17 September 2013
Reading the first installment of Martin Ash's "Enchantment's Reach" is spell bounding. Martin Ash has created a fantasy world that is reminiscence of the writings of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Not only in the quality and grace of writing but in the esoteric meanings throughout the story.

This world of Martin Ash is a fragile one, one that at times seems to mirror our own mortality. Underlying throughout the plot, you get a sense of the age old questions being asked, such as who are we, where did we can from, and more importantly, where do we go. I see the mysteries being addressed making the story even more, should I say, enchanting.

The use of language is masterful in creating characters that seem to be real. There is a sense of frailty woven into the storyline that adds a degree of realism that only a true wordsmith can achieve.

There is a depth and richness in the layers and texture of the characters that seem as if you have known them your entire life, aka, L. Frank Baum's Wizard of Oz. The characters are that real.

Somewhat paradoxical, I know, that in order to create a believable fantasy world such as "Enchantment's Reach," the characters need to be relatable. It's easy connect to Leth and Issul with their flaws, shortcomings, scheming, desires and fears. The story is one where becoming immersed is unavoidable.

If you are searching for a great read with a deeper meaning that will leave you in contemplative thought, then this is the book for you. I thoroughly enjoy it and can recommend the works of Martin Ash.
