Join a young adventurer as he journeys through a mysterious realm, that he struggles to comprehend: he has spent his entire life here, and yet has never experienced it; nor indeed does he know himself - having no notion of the strengths and the skills he possesses. He - and you - have much to discover...

You can't go into this book expecting something like your standard fantasy novel with a beginning, middle, and end. This is far more chaotic than that, and like the protagonists you're plonked right in the middle (while having some vague notion of what the beginning was) and you just wander around as best you can while being entertained by the goings-on.

This novel definitely came across as an "establishing the setting" type book, where you're given introductions to characters and the general gi

Got to a sticking point for a while with this as there was a couple of sections that were for personal reasons a bit hard to get through, but finished at last and will read it again soon in spite of that.

Anyway I was given the book by my other half, she thought it ought to be “my sort of thing”.
Checked out the bio/info in the back of the book, two brothers writing about their D&D gaming days in their youth in the 80s (whoa, OLD dudes, lol!) not a promising start I thought, I soon got hooked thou

I didn't want to give this trash any " stars " at all, but that's the only way to have my say it appears. Amazed this has so many good reviews tbh, this " book " is terrible. Another lazy fantasist using a load of made up nonsense for the principal aim of making fun of religion. Thats bad enough as it is, but to steal chapter titles from the Bible, not to mention the name of Genesis itself, is actually quite pathetic. Just another egotist - atheist using his " writing " to bash on Christianity, ...more

My first review! There seem to be plenty for most other things, not so many here, so I thought I'd put in my two penny's worth......
Straight away, this book steers you on a peculiar course, and then carries on in similar fashion throughout - in a good way, I mean!
It's very different to typical fantasy-writing, and refreshingly so I think, first of all just in the word-use, there's none of the usual pomposity and courtly-manners style of speaking that seems to be the usual run of things in this

This was quite a little treasure. Strange but interesting right from the start - and as the previous reviewer has said, a lot going on. Not least the initial setup of the world's mythology, a real mix of several cultures that was even so a credible whole. It's silly, funny, scary, and all sorts ofeverything else, never settling into one particular groove and switching from seriousness to humorous without missing a step, and also without losing its 'reality' even with a little fourth-wall breakin ...more

Ian and Jo Brumby have been writing in one form or another since their very early years. It all began with The Werewolf Magazine, a once-every-two-months’ production made for friends and relatives who were among the privileged few able to claim membership of the ‘Werewolf Club.’ - Ian started this publication at the tender age of ten, (possibly younger in fact) with Jo and other folks besides maki ...more
