Review by Neale
Its hard to review this book. As many others have said it has many similarities with Lord Of The Rings - I kept reading reading and ignored the similarities and the ending was worth the read. I will probably read the next instalment on the basis that its already taken many ot LOTR stuff so hopefully it will be more original throughout.
Review by crackberrybooks
it’s a good old fashioned classic fantasy tale, but bloody hell, it doesn’t half drag on when you read it. There’s a vast amount of repetition all the way through, and a serious degree of ‘waffle’ that’s no use to man nor beast. The story though, when you can finally get to it, is great stuff, well worth the effort.Evil Warlock – checkBad gnomes – checkHardy dwarves -checkHonourable elves – checkSimple country folk on an epic quest – check.
