I was compelled, of course, to go back to the game to play it with all the context I had gathered. This time better understanding each decision, each move.
I had the starting point of having played the game to get my interest for the book. But did it stand on it’s own? I do firmly believe so as it is based on a pretty rich universe, one that draws you in with its epic and mystical setting. And it does help how Drew Wagar’s words weave a story that leaves me wanting to come back for more.
Thank you Drew and Chris for giving us this after so much time. Can’t wait for Doomdark’s Revenge next!!!
What we DO have is a fun piece of writing - along the lines of RR. Martin or Raymond Feist.
The preceding is a compliment.
I was surprised at the quality of the writing. The story was nothing fresh, yet, it was enjoyable. Cliques were used, but, used well. I look forward to the next book in this series, and, will take a look at his Shadeward work.
Best book purchase of my year so far.
What it is, though, is a perfectly entertaining and relaxing read, a happy distraction from more serious works. The course of the fighting is well described (it's the classic "good guys assemble to battle the dark lord" story) and the story hangs together well. My only real complaint is that very occasionally the mock-medieval language used in the book can start to grate.
I am very much looking forward to the next book in the story, not least because the plot in the game-series became much more original after the first episode, so this should be the case for the second game also.
There are some small weaknesses that are, to my understanding, caused by adherence to the original game and its writer: many of the plot elements and some smaller details are rather clearly drawn from Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. These include the overall aim of destroying an evil magical item, but also others that I'm not going to mention because they might spoil some of the twists and turns of the story - but you'll recognise them easily and they sometimes kick you out of the story for a moment. Also the beginning of the novel feels like a long introduction (many beginnings) before the story actually starts moving along, but I suspect this is also a feature of the original game - setting up the game board, so to say.
The author's language is a great fit for the style of the story, and the use of archaic spelling here and there strengthens the feel of fantasy nicely. It is obvious that the writer loves the original game and has done a great work to bring the story alive to others who want to revisit it - and also people like me who a drawn to the story for other reasons.
