There's really so little originality in most epic fantasy - and self published epic fantasy is usually derivative dreck. Watered-down AD&D with English or American names, the obligatory pub scene, the Larry Sue hero who grows up a humble youth but rapidly becomes a master at swordplay or magic or both when his hands are first put to it. . . Dragons and evil sorcerers who grow mustaches because one looks ridiculous twirling empty air around one's mouth. Brawny fighters, studious mages, and bow-wielding rangers who speak with some attempt at an Irish or Scottish accent. (I blame youuuuuuu, Salvatore!) Evil, usurping kings and brave rebels and the Lost Heir to the Throne of Somewhere. (Who is usually the main character.)
Some (most?) self-published writers think that you don't need a truly good story so long as you have the trappings. Not this book. Not this author.
The dialogue is great. The action is great. The characters are actually three dimensional, and nothing is quite what it seems nor is anyone as good - or bad as one would think after reading the usual crap tropes from the usual crap writers. The plot is solid - this author really put a lot of thought into this book.
This is my favorite book of the year so far. (I'm always holding out hope.) Spend your money - and your time - on this novel. You won't regret it. I'll be first in line for the sequel.
My guess is that most of the good reviews came from individuals who rented the book for free. It *is* hard to argue with free.
