Quest is book 1 in a series featuring princess Sylvalla, who starts out young, foolish, wayward, and brave. She desires a Quest with a capital Q and meets an array of quirky men as she quests for the Quest. The characterization is fresh and original. The plot is inventive. The theme requires scant mention in a humor book, but I will say I liked Ponder's treatment of decency and honor. In terms of demerits, yet again, sigh, magic is the deus ex machina that solves the main problem like, well, like magic. I got over my disappointment a page or two later, though, because part of the point of the book was to satirize the fantasy genre, in a loving, good natured way.
I liked the "case files" littered here and there referring to the various characters - It helped me to know them in depth.
At the end of the book there is a great deal of further interesting information about happenings and people (a la Tolkein?), including footnotes.
All in all, a well-rounded work, with an intriguing plotline and dialogue,. There were no editorial mistakes that leapt out at me. Loved the cover art-work.
