The thing is that Leer is absolutely right, and the fact that he is is brought to frightening reality with the Princess is kidnapped by The Grimbaurrer, that same creature no one thinks is real. Leer sets out on a journey to find and rescue the Princess, and along the way, the journey turns into something else, leading up to a final conflict that sets things up nicely for the next book in the series, and I’m really looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here.
The Fell is a quick read, and the world that Harper has created is a very interesting one. I hope we hear more about the world’s mythology in the future, but at the same time, I’m hoping for a bit more action in future books, now that the world is pretty well set up. Don’t get me wrong, the world is nicely set up and the action that does exist in this book is great, I’m just a bit of a junkie when it comes to that stuff, and I always want more. Hehe. Yeah, I’m greedy, what can I say? But as the opening of a trilogy, well done, Ms. Harper. Now, get cooking on Book 2. I need to know what happens next.
Consider this review a 4.5 out of 5, but Amazon won't do fractions. heh
Fantasy fans, go and get this now. Seriously, go. Shoo.
This is an intense story with a lot of mind games that tease the reader and leave you guessing what will happen next. Although there is a quest to save a princess from a monster (The Grimbaurrer) and an epic feel to it, the whole tone is very dark, and falls into the category of dark fantasy.
The legend of the Grimbaurrer is fascinating, especially as we are only fed bits and pieces as the story goes along!
I miss reading good old fashioned fantasy with a whole fictional world and fun new creatures and legends. The Fell doesn't disappoint! Although the main characters are human, they exist in a relm that is quite different from ours. (ThoughI had a lot of fun with the similar creatures and guessing what their "real world" counterparts would be based on the author's descriptions!)
I like Leer, for the most part. He is your typical fantasy hero: chivalrous, better than his position in society, a dreamer, and a believer. I did find the nature of his relationship with Astrid a bit cliche, but not too terribly forced. I absolutely love the contrast between him and the Lieutenant who you would think would be more chivalrous, given his position.
I also appreciate the ending (another reason I feel it fits better in Dark more so than in Epic) but I won't give it away. Needless to say, this was an excellent debut for a new author. Look forward to the next book!
I especially loved the world the author created. The descriptions were vivid and painted a very clear picture in my head—a very important factor in my enjoyment. I experienced the emotions, feelings, thoughts, and sensations of the characters, and the book kept me interested until the end.
It wasn't perfect though. The dialogue felt stiff, stilted, and unnatural, without a flow. The characters were always hostile and angry, and there were a few important elements left unclear or vague, at least to me.
Also the writer introduced a lot of animal names but gave no descriptions for them. It irked me every time I read one of those names, as I had no idea what she was referring to when she said “Nothin’ but a drink bloated habbersnitch.” Detracted from my enjoyment.
All in all, though, a solid book, one well worth the reading!
The ending was a surprise and pulled some cords...Made me cry. I need the next book!!!!
