The fantasy genre is a favorite of mine and this book was a great read. I like that its not written for middle schoolers but geared to adults. I felt really invested in these characters by the end of the book and I look forward to reading the next in the series. The main character Errol goes from being an orphaned drunk with no purpose in life to the hero of the story. I love the change he goes through and how it flowed through the book. There was the right amount of action, adventure and imagination. I was glad they left the romance element out of the first book as there was enough happening without adding that to the story. If you enjoy fantasy, this is well worth the read.
I received this book free from Bethany House in exchange for my review.
