Recommends it for: No one. It's a trainwreck.
My first completed novel of 2015 (ie. not manga), and what a stinker!

Being a lover of Fable I ~ III (a series of XBOX fantasy-rpg video games) and fantasy novels, I was all set to adore this book. Alas, it was not meant to be.

This book just crushes everything Fable III was about. The Darkness that was crushed in that game is back and as strong as ever. How, no one knows. So the sacrifices made in the previous battle counted for nothing.

One complaint that other reviewers have addressed is that in

I only rated this book three stars because there is a loose end that is not concluded at the end of the book. Everything else kept with the Fable storyline successfully and was, in fact, a very exciting and engaging story.

The beginning of this book was quite confusing. It did not give a solid "lead" into the actual story. It took me reading it a few times too just ignore the first few pages and continue reading. It isn't until the very end it somewhat connects. As I continued to read, the plot began taking form. It continued to improve as I got deeper into the actual story.

There were several key characters but primarily King of Albion; his new queen, Laylah;" the royal dog", Rex; the king's loyal subjects, Page,

The first thing that struck me when looking at this novel and reading the notes on the back of the cover was how small it was for something with such a big plot, and this did hold up while reading, it did seem as if there should have been a lot more pages contained as the jumps from one thing to the next did at times leave a lot to be desired. In fairness though, I know this is a novel based around the story of an xbox game series and me being very technically not with it, I did expect none of i ...more

Won from First reads giveaway on GoodReads.

I've never played any of the Fable games, so I was a little skeptical about reading this. But overall it was a okay book the characters and plot were easy to follow. The jumping around made it a little hard to follow at times though.

Hated this book. It's nothing like the first two and just them trying to get people to buy the crap Kinect game they made. So disappointed. No resolution at all, just a giant cliffhanger.

Decent fantasy

Common other world fantasy with the usual suspects. Plot development is good, lacks surprises, but moves along well for this tale.
