really liked it

Read from January 23 to July 04, 2011 — I own a copy

5 stars for Book I: Light Underground. I absolutely loved it! In fact, just read the first 51 pages if you want a teaser. The rest the novel drifted back to 4 stars for me.

One of a kind, this introduction to Tales from the Flat Earth was really interesting. The stories are loosely interconnected and the book could easily be read in one night, or in several separate short readings (as I did).

The stories surrounding the Dark Lord, Azhrarn, and Flat Earth are clever and full of magic and mischief, making them very enjoyable to read. The pace is quick and the writing style descriptive yet concise.

Refreshingly original, I hope to get my hands on some more of these, but the library does not have and they are not the cheapest.

Absolutely love the cover.

47.0% "A good place to stop, at the end of Book I. I LOVED the story of Kazir and Ferazhin!!! Don't think I will ever forget it. This book is fast picking up favor with me. THEY ARE STORIES! Like a storyteller would give, not like modern day fantasy books where we follow one or two POV characters around. Very rich, imaginative, and vivid, stories."

Kara Guess that was quite the break between Part I and Part II. Enjoying the book, but can easily put it down and pick it back up. Also, these are STORIES (almost short stories), so I can easily read another typical fantasy with POV characters at the same time.
