    A dream come true for any fan of the legendary video game franchise!

    Having never read any of Richard C. White's previous works, I have to say that not only was I fairly impressed with this book, I was thoroughly enthralled in the fantasy world of Gauntlet: Dark Legacy. Anyone who grew up in the 1980's and can remember the classic arcade games will surely appreciate this exciting fantasy story involving Morgan (the Wizard), Layla (the Valkyrie), Orlando (the Warrior) and Kore (the Elven Archer). I'll try not to spoil too much but I will say that this is a fast-paced action-packed story centering on the quartet, as they embark on a quest to gather the shards/runestones in order to banish the mysterious Dark Lord. The book reads like playing the video game; fast-moving and lots of fight scenes. White's detailed descriptions of the various back drops/environments (from a country town village being over-run by undead zombies, to claustrophobic mausoleums to ancient, primeval forests long abandoned by elves, etc.) are well done and his characterizations of all 4 characters are dead-on (the back-and-forth banter between Orlando and Layla got to be a little too much at times)...my favorite character being Kore the little-known elven maiden who succeeded Gauntlet's original *famous* elf, Questor. Poor Kore...for years, she took a lot of grief from die-hard old-school Gauntlet video gamers for being the elf who replaced Questor. Ever since Gauntlet: Legends, she was always living in Questor's shadow, never being able to live up to the legacy of Gauntlet's most famous Elven bowman...but here in this story, Kore comes into her own; she really steals the show here, with her keen elven senses and tracking/scouting skills and skill with the crossbow--she's easily the coolest character in the entire novel. We also see appearances from Sumner, a dryad, a crazed priest, and much more. Okay, I'm starting to give away too much. Anyways, my hope is that in 'Book 2' or whatever the sequel to this novel will be, we see the introduction of the *other* 4 characters from Gauntlet: Dark Legacy (Phineas the Knight, the Sorceress, the Jester, and the Dwarf)...and wouldn't that be a kick if we saw cameos from the original Gauntlet heroes: Thor, Thyra, Questor, and Merlin? All in all, Gauntlet: Dark Legacy, Book 1 - Paths of Evil is an awesome, fun read. Is it the greatest piece of literature ever? No...if you want that, go read the SILMARILLION. In fact, it's actually very simply written and pretty reader-friendly (as a Tolkien die-hard, this was a welcome vacation! :)). And yes, there are some dubious editing/spelling errors. And no, the story is not original; afterall, the 'wizard, warrior, elf, and valkryie party embarking on a quest' scenario has been done to death in many a fantasy story and movie (or something similar to that scenario). The greatest appeal of this story is seeing the 4 characters COME TO LIFE via White's incredible characterizations. Morgan is the cool-headed leader who holds everthing together, Orlando is the hot-headed, dim-witted muscle head, Layla is the amazon who likes to taunt him, and Kore is the 'silent but deadly' elf sniper who is still learning the nuances of human kind. Gauntlet is also an enjoyable, over-the-top fantasy-realm romp that any fan of the genre would like. If you're a fan of any of the Gauntlet video games, you should pick this book up. Heck, even if you're not a Gauntlet fan, but still like the fantasy/sword and sorcery genre of stories, you still should give it a try. A good first effort by Richard C. White. I can't wait for Book 2!

    Overall - an enjoyable read

    I purchased this book at the brick and mortar store the weekend that Richard was doing book signings locally. I needed a book(s) for an upcoming 3-day weekend getaway and picked up Gauntlet. (I have no prior experience with Gauntlet ¿the game.) I liked the characters¿ personalities and how they interacted with one another - it made the story more than just a suspenseful quest. The book also described the undead appropriately ¿ not too graphic, but in good detail. It worked the suspense rather than the gruesome. Overall, this was an enjoyable read.
