A true fantasy novel, Dwarves, goblins and Elves (Birlotes), this story is very well written and the writer, Robert, E, Keller knows his craft. So what he has written is easy and enjoyable to read.
The book starts, and feels like a combination of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, not a bad thing as I love both of these books. Then it goes its own way as we follow our reluctant hero, Lannon, through his training and facing of demons.
This story could have been excellent and got five stars, it built up well, though some of the characters were a little inconsistent, then it started to flow well, building up to what I believed would be a final confrontation, then nothing. The story stops and they go back to training. I felt a little let down. I can understand there is more to come, however, an end should answer some questions and leave a cliffhanger of a big finale, this did neither.
Negatives said, it’s still well worth reading and well worth 4 stars.
