Doran handles the exposition dumps with just enough style and wit to keep them from becoming too lumbering or dull. However, dialogue passages (where characters stand around and discuss what’s happening, what they should do, etc.) take up a large portion of the story space; more physical action/intrigue and descriptive detail of the world Doran creates would have made the story more engaging (and entertaining overall). As is, it bogs down from time to time, but has enough tricks up its sleeve to keep the reader pushing past them. Highlight: the intriguing, dream-like way the “real world” and “fairy tale world” overlap late in the story.
Most important lesson to take away from Kingdom Come: Never kiss a corpse in the presence of a dwarf.
What begins as a predictable adventure quickly converts into a fast-paced, original story with clever twists on fairy tales reaching past their Disney interpretations to the authentic archives of the Brothers Grimm. The characters are the highlight of this book (Helga - I love her, I love her, I love her!) with the plot a close second. It's engrossing, full of fantasy action and lore, but be wary: Kingdom Come packs a surprising emotional punch. A deeply satisfying read on all accounts, I'm happy to give it 5 stars and recommend it to anyone!
