In Call of Hywilkin, you will see more of how the elves live and think. You will also see how the magic-despising men of Hywilkin live and think and how that affects other Hywilkin denizens.There are other magical creatures--enough to entice, but will leave you wanting more.You'll meet a couple more Muses. All your favorite characters (Azi, Flitt, Rian, and the rest of the Elite) are here, having harrowing new adventures. There are awesome new characters you'll want to see more. You will find you have even more questions about what's going to happen in the next book. And if you thought the illustrations in Brindelier were awesome, wait til you see the ones in Hywilkin! I was entranced by the one of Uncle Gaethon (that ring!) and it's just the first main illustration.
I read this book through once and then I just skimmed through it again, and I loved it even more. There were parts that were touching the first go-through, but I was hurrying through to find out what happened next. But this time, I found some of those parts again, and they were really poignant. Especially with Tib and Margy. So even if you've read it once, I recommend reading it again. You'll thank me later.
I hesitated before reading this one, not because I didn't like the others (because I did), but the blurb made it sound so hopeless. I had problems imagining this tale turning into something so dark. As it turned out, this one was by far my favorite. It's not as it seems to be.
Now, maybe it's because I am a gamer, but I loved the way the author presented the fighters. I mean, you see it in games, bards, healers, mages, swordsmen and, of course, the monsters, but while in games you fight, you don't really understand how it's done or even where the mobs come from. In this story, you do and it feels so natural. You don't wonder how a song can heal or calm or give energy, you just believe.
Once again, my favorite character was Tib. I would compare him to the rogue class. In games, rogues can become invisible, which always made me wonder how this could be. With Tib, you know about the half-realm and it makes perfect sense.
The one thing that made me wonder a bit (and chuckle a lot) was the thought of the half giant…I mean…there was a small giant in the story that was the size of a house. Well, now I'm thinking half giant? Mom couldn't be human, she'd have exploded before giving birth. Dad, a human? ok...why not…but then…I'm trying to imagine the conception of the child. Do I need to explain further? Oh well…it's a fairytale so not everything can be explained.
