The author of "The Last Archer of Laummoren" certainly understood the importance of this in making a believable fictional world, and it shows. It contains literary and mythological references to our own world, which suggest that the story is set in our own far future, after some calamity that throws us back into an agrarian society. There are indications that all is not well - outlaw activity is on the rise, and firearms have reappeared in the world. These and other references throughout strongly hint at something larger afoot.
The story starts simply, and doesn't try to cram a bunch of names, places and politics down the reader's throat right out of the gate. I'm the first to admit that my motivation in reading is escapism, and I rarely have the patience to keep track of that level of detail when it all hits at once. If a book doesn't grab me with the characters within the first few pages, I'm likely to move on. This one succeeded in keeping my attention.
My only real criticism is that at the beginning of the book, dialog between characters often felt stiff or stilted and over-formal. By the end of the book, though, the dialogs between characters felt much more natural. I suspect the author himself simply became more comfortable with his characters as they developed.
Overall, I liked it very much. Each day on the way home from work I looked forward to sitting down and reading more, and that, perhaps, is the best compliment one could give an author.
I look forward to reading the sequel, which I've just bought.
I flew through this story in two days, enjoying every chapter, every word and ended feeling as though The Last Archer of Laummoren was an old friend. I am looking forward to a sequel and if I might hope to high, a trilogy.
This book has everything...action, adventure, and even romance. The Archer Gideon is a great main character - mysterious, exciting, and skilled. His adventures kept me turning the pages wanting more. Lady Serena skillfully pries into Gideon's past, all the while building her interests for the future (do I smell a sequel?). The parts of the book that describe battles and chases kept me up into all hours of the night. The time period of the book is purposefully vague and lets your imagination take you to different places, as I believe was the author's intention.
This is a great first book by an exciting new author. Give it a read and let's hope there are more to come!
