The fantasy world of the novel is well realized, with a clear geography and interesting creatures. Some of the beings that might be familiar from other fantasy novels (ie: fairies and witches) are given interesting twists, while descriptions of the lives of more original characters (ie: the Bearslayers) really bring the reader into the world of the novel. I especially liked some of the details of life in the royal palace; characters like the Chatelaine and the Royal Chirurgeon made the fictional world really come to life. (The Priest who turned out to be even more uncharitably rigid in upholding the social order than his brother, the prince, was also a fascinating character.)
The plot is developed quite well in classical fantasy style. The story starts out seeming quite simple (get the disc with the compute programme on it and close the portal between dimensions), but soon complications ensue (fairies took it to build a nest; the sorcerer seems to have plans other than serving the prince, etc.). As the story opens out, it gives Chardenet the opportunity to explore her ever-expanding world.
Then, of course, there is the clash of worlds. At one point, the sorcerer gets his hands on the computer disk that contains the programme that opened the portal between worlds, but he has no idea what to do with it. I loved that. There are also cultural references that cause confusion between characters from different realities which are always fun.Read more ›
The author possesses a unique sense of humour that is refreshing and very witty, and her style endears the heroes of the story to the reader and gives each of them a quirky personality. The characters do speak to the reader and they are multi-dimensional. In short, they feel real, even though this is a humorous fantasy.
Great read! So when's the movie coming out?
