This time, the story is more suited to older children, since the narrator this time is Bow, a sixteen-year-old who has self-esteem issues but is eager to explore the world and prove his mettle. In addition, there’s a cute furry pet named Muh that helps Bow fight off shadowy villains.
There is some jarring modern jargon in this story, such as “plush toys”, “sass”, “body bags”, and “celebrities,” which makes me think this should stick to the medieval times language that this book pretty much sticks faithfully to.
The only part that fell flat for me was the ending, as it seemed like a series of battles where it was pre-ordained who would win, with the villains giving as good as they can get, but it’s the standard “both sides are evenly matched, the hero could have just as well lost, but he pulls through.” This literary device is very common though, so I’ll happily overlook it.
I really enjoyed the build-up in this book and the very unique storytelling. It’s unlike others I’ve read. I just had a nagging feeling that it was so easy for the main villain to overrun the entire town, and if Bow didn’t exist, the entire populace would’ve perished. Sounds too easy. The bad guy was only here for a few weeks and already everything is rip-roaring in his favour.
It’s a lot of fun to read.
