I'm not even kidding.
It is a rare thing when I am on the edge of my seat for a conversation that isn't barreling towards violence. But there are multiple scenes throughout Priest that left me breathless due to the tension, verbal and emotional jousting, and vivid pictures of each participant vying towards their goals.
His prose is strong, Heden an original and deeply felt protagonist, and all wrapped up in an exciting fantastical story. Seriously, read this book. Do it.
If you're looking for long descriptions or character backstory, this is not the book for you. It is short and to-the-point, which I appreciate in my current state of 'busy'. The main character is interesting, and the tiny hints of his past that the author drops are enough to make him very intriguing. The story flowed well and didn't lose my interest at any point. I appreciated that the story consistently focused on Heden and one point of view (something I'm struggling with as I read the second book) and that we discover the plot along with him.
There are definitely grammar/spelling mistakes, but nothing that overwhelms the immersion or ruined the experience for me. A quick polish is all it needs.
Overall very enjoyable, I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
P.S. For what it's worth, I believe this book sets the record for "most uses of the word pig-f**cker" in a short novel. :)
Could have done a bit more explanation of the world and its terms in-text - I noticed quite a few references that depended on knowledge of D&D or external knowledge of his D&D games (which he has youtube videos of), and I felt a bit lost in the world when a new term popped up without much in the way of explanation. I do appreciate that it's not an infodump, but I'm not sure that feeling of being confused by seemingly common knowledge is exactly what the author was going for.
The characters are legitimately intriguing and complex. They act about as a real person might - they aren't strict, unchanging fantasy archetypes. They draw on those tropes, but in a way that makes them seem legitimately like people trying to make their way in the world.
All in all, a refreshing addition to your fantasy bookshelf. Would recommend!
