    more from this reviewer

    The year AHP (after Harry Potter)

    anything with two boys and a girl set in England was bound to be a spin-off. To add to that, I'm not a huge fantasy fan. So Forger of the Runeblade had to overcome some pretty stiff prejudices on my part. First, it's nothing like HP (thank goodness, don't send hate mail. I liked HP, but come on, it's over.) and second, I like it. The book started off with a bang. Prince Helgrim defeated all his foes which you would normally think is a good thing until... Heh, you're just going to have to read The Runeblade Saga Book 1 to find out. There are three heroes to save the day - Hal, Eric, and Gwen. If you enjoy your elves - swart, then you'll like this tale.

    Couldn't get through it...

    There were too many characters and it flipped from one story line to another with no break making it very difficult to follow. I gave up, which is unusual for me as I usually persevere in spite of the adversity. It could be an interesting story, but needs some serious edits to make it work.

    A horrible book

    This book has a good enough story line, but half the book is missing.

    An OK read, not gripping

    I am an avid fantasy fan and while the premise was good and the characters had good potential to be developed, the book just didn't come through. With this in mind I would say that I am not interested in picking up the sequel(s). There are other books out there with much more depth... Imagine taking Tolkein's trilogy, making a 3-part film out of it, and then trying to condense it down to one book again. This is what we have with 'Forger of the Runeblade'. The story line is very stilted, the characters and dialog are not developed, everything is "rushed". As for using this volume as a discussion point. It would serve well in a creative writing class.
