I discovered this book accidentally, when I was auditioning to narrate the audiobook version (I didn't get it). I DID, however, have so much fun reading the audition that it quickly became a necessity to read the book.
I was not disappointed.
Not only was Bundy's novel overflowing with tons of stuff that I traditionally like, it was also noticeably absent most of the things I traditionally loathe in genre fiction (like commonplace characters, predictable plotting, and a recognizable formula). I found the placement of these characters in the contemporary American Southeast to be fresh and interesting, without sacrificing the terrific traditional details we associate with dwarves in the old-school fantasy novels. I also was very happily surprised that the author didn't hand-feed the plot to us, as is so often true with fantasy. On several occasions, I was actually uncertain of what was going to happen next, and I LOVE that. Last time I had an author keep me guessing like that was when I first discovered George R. R. Martin, and his great fondness for killing off major characters that the reader would never expect to lose.
But, back to this book. One of the things I appreciated the most about this story was how distinctive the voice of the main character was. Being originally from mountain country in the American South myself, I was constantly tickled to hear Amanda communicating in ways that I recognized as being the voice of "my people".Read more ›
All the characters are developed fully, even the non-human ones. Amanda, the main character, is developed realistically in the sense I had a love/hate relationship with her especially at the beginning of the book. I thought she'd be like a heroine (all nicey nice) since she was the 'star' of this book but I found her a bit self-centered with a really poor outlook on people and life in general. Perhaps it can be explained away by her 'oddsense' and having to deal with that, maybe it was having to live next to dwarves which really don't think highly of humans and it rubbed off, maybe it is the loss of her husband, and there are a few other things she has going on in her life that may contribute to this outlook of her's. Whatever the cause, she is very realistic in that she has her good points and bad, good days and bad, just like everyone I know.Read more ›
I received a copy from the publisher for review.

Erik Bundy sent me this book a while ago and for some reason it took me quite some time to get reading it. I must say, that was a mistake! This was a truly great read. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Lola
