I'm usually one that likes a lot more action in my books then what was in this one. However that's not to say there is no action in The Troven. In fact, the action scenes that are in the Troven are very well done and enough to keep me satisfied. There is also quite a bit of humor through out the book that is tastefully done and not over the top. It helps to add to the lightheartedness of the story even for the few time’s the story takes an unexpected turn for the worse for the characters. There was one event that happened a little more than half way through that I was not expecting and was initially shocked at (in a good way). It’s an event that plays a critical role in the character development for the rest of the book and I can’t wait to see how the characters grow throughout the series because of it.
The Troven kicks of The Kingdom of Denall series fantastically and once finished you will have no choice but to head to amazon and buy the other books in the series. The Troven was the first book of Eric Buffington that I have read but I can assure you that it will not be the last. You will not be disapointed with The Troven or with Buffington’s writing in this wonderfully imagined tale.
But meanwhile, four young boys undergo their Troven. As a right of manhood, their parents kicked them out of the house at 18, and the townspeople kick them out of the village as well. For one year, they have to go somewhere else. Join the army, go to college, freeze in a log cabin somewhere, or starve to death. For our four young men, their biggest challenge seems to be not strangling each other while they travel. That and the attacks by animals, bandits, and mad cultists.
Troven is a nice, leisurely read for the young person looking for a fantasy world unencumbered by controversy. It has the nostalgic, prosaic feel of the Shire, and protagonists who, though they may someday become heroes, are starting their lives as the brash youths all heroes must have been at some point in their careers.
