Three Hearts and Three Lions is an older book, one which was not cast as modern books in that it is done in one. Its main characters have a grand adventure that shakes the foundations of their world and then it's over. Creatures, like this version of the troll, are different from even Poul Anderson's other version of trolls in say, The Broken Sword. This book introduces chaos and law as fundamental forces and events rather than as vague ideas and concepts.
Much that has come after owes a nod of acknowledgment to Poul Anderson. Unlike some though, Poul's writing is also top notch. It's not just that he came up with a monstrous entity in the troll that could only be killed permanently by fire, but rather this his skill in crafting his world is top notch and writers of today could learn much from his style.
If you're a fan of games like Dungeons and Dragons and want a peek at how Chaos and Law might have first influenced that game, this is a solid novel to gather such lore.
