really liked it
Read in January, 2012

This was, like all of Lawhead's books, a great deal of fun. Very entertaining story, covering a great deal of terrain and also a good amount of character development and growth. My favorite part about every Lawhead novel that I have read so far (Pendragon Cycle, Patrick, and the first two of the Dragon King) is his ability to incorporate clearly Christian themes and types without sounding too "cheesy". That is a valuable trait as so many books written by Christians are just written poorly and with much laziness. He takes the effort and the time to incorporate His beliefs into his books in a genuine and authentic way. I believe this is because they are actually apart of him (as an author and as a person) rather than some extra process of writing something and then "christianizing" it. Anyhoo, if you like high fantasy this one would be highly recommended. Less so if you don't, but it may still be enjoyable.
