The main characters, teenagers of the race of creatures known as Grinzles were lively and seemed close to human teenagers as possible, in that Jip, the older brother didn't want his younger sister, Pelt to bother him and his friend Saymon on their daily adventures.
I have a feeling shy Pelt is going to end up being the bolder of the three, as she insists the three of them venture out from their comfort zone, near the Grinzle village and explore the strange light the three notice far into the forest.
I am not a big high-fantasy fan, but this book caught and held my attention and I am looking forward to the rest of the book.
We see glimpses of extraordinary beings and it seems clear we are about to embark on a grand adventure, but the opening introduces us to characters that may look very different from us, but clearly share similar emotions.
The excerpt ends just as we see hints of the mystery and adventure to come and I would like to find out more.
The one thing that kept me from giving this five stars was the first half of the first chapter. It's basically an info dump about Grinzleville. I believe the author could hook the reader better if these details were spread throughout the story rather than clumped together at the beginning.
Nonetheless, I would continue reading and hope I have the chance to in the future. Good job!
The vast amount of backstory dumped in the first chapter, though, would be better interspersed with action sequences. The dialogue feels stilted in places, which may simply be the way the grullings speak, but it reads awkward.
With some tweaking, Grinzleville can be an enjoyable read for lovers of high fantasy.
The story drew me right in, and I couldn't wait to see where it would lead our little Grullings.
I won't go into the plot details, or a discussion of how well Chris writes. Others have already done that. What I will say is this was a huge and pleasant surprise. I've purchased the other two volumes in the series, and can't wait to see what new adventures await our little friends and Grinzleville itself.
Thank you Chris!!

Somewhere out there in the vast universe, Grinzilleville exists in another time space continuum. I totally enjoyed this and am anxiously awaiting the next episode.Published on April 4, 2011 by Rene
Epic fantasy can be difficult to read, and (I'm guessing) difficult to write.
