I loved the way Logson and Young created such laughable, lovable, relatable characters -- even their villains. I also loved the way they combined the absurd with the mundane to create humor. These two talented writers definitely know how to delight readers.
I hope that Logson and Young plan to write more Ononokin books (4 is not enough!) because I will be eagerly waiting to read them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it.
This is a fun book and a joy to read. Great character development. Several laugh-out-loud moments and plenty of giggles. My only complaint is that I had a pretty good idea of what was going to happen early on in the book, and that kept away the tension I like to feel when a character I love is in danger. Of course (*spoiler alert*) the hero will win and the villain will lose, but I want to have just a few moments of doubt. That lowered my rating from 5 stars to 4.
Overall, the fantasy world is well developed, and there were many times where I was introduced to a new character and thought "I have met this person" even though the character might be an orc or a troll.
And while the storyline or ending may seem a little predictable, the journey getting there still manages to captivate you. All in all this is another enjoyable read from Logsdon and Young. If you want a book you can pick up and immerse yourself in (adult) silliness and fun, then this folks is it!
The Fate Quest (Tales From the Land of Ononokin .5) is available only through Logson's site, please note that is point 5 as in 1/2 not #5.
I enjoyed the book so much I then also bought a copy.
My only complaint about this book is the amount of sleep I lost reading it.
I got pissed at some characters for the way they were treating others.
I got happy when some characters did what they did.
Yes, you invest in the characters.
No, you don't need to have read the other books in this world to enjoy this book.
Well worth it.

Gappy Whirligig the Gnome, who is considered to be getting ahead of himself, is the main character but all characters are fun in their own right and the writing is so easy to read and great for relaxing after a tough day or week.
If you fancy a story about a land with Gnomes, Wizards and all sorts of supernatural races that will make you laugh then give this book a go. I have personally recommended to friends and members of my family who have loved it too :-)
I couldn't put this book down, and my giggling has now made my wife start reading John P. Logsdon's books.
Overall I can easily and whole-heartedly recommend any of John P. Logsdon's books if you like fantasy or sci-fi and enjoy some humour.
This book, as with others by the same authors, hook you in from the first sentence and although he plot jogs happily (keeping those pages turning at 2am) the strength for me lies in the personalities of the characters and the entertaining dialogue and interactions between them all. Nothing feels like its forced and you get a sense that these are real ‘people’…. or ‘Ogres’ or ‘Gnomes’, making their own autonomous decisions. There were a couple of times in the book I thought that the story might go off in a formulaic way, but it was refreshing that the characters didn’t allow that to happen. The writing is dialogue-rich and unrelentingly funny. Sometimes you laugh out loud, generally you find yourself smiling and chuckling quietly or suppressing a laugh if you’re in public!
Aside from enjoying a believable other world and ‘real’ characters, I really enjoyed the original ideas and concepts that pepper the story. Reminds me very much of Douglas Adams - the sort of original ideas that only come about after spending the afternoon in the bath.
These books are intended for an adult audience as there is are a couple of mild grown-up references in there such as a character ’sleeping around’ type of thing. For me, although they do add a little to the colour of the story, I think if these mild references were left out, these books might be suitable for a sophisticated younger audience too. Mind you I can’t let my daughter watch all of Monty Python’s work yet either!
I would highly recommend Gappy's Gadgets and all the other books by John P. Logsdon and Christopher P. Young. They are great world creators and this book is a great place to start if you are new to their work. A++++++++
