Review by Connor Armstrong on October 3rd, 2015
This book starts out as a fairly typical fantasy book with all the standard ingredients - magic, clueless farmboys, prophecy and monsters. It soon becomes evident that it is anything but typical.
All of these standard elements come with a variety of interesting twists, turning it into a unique tale which only grows in scale as the series progresses, providing a longer experience than Lord of the Rings that is somewhat easier to read.
One warning - there are 14 book in the series, you may well need to read them all.
