Normally I don't read fantasy (I'm a war adventure and detective story type), but this story seemed interesting. Once I got into the book, and past some of the tongue-twisting names, I couldn't put it down. Rowley does a great job of developing the characters and the plot, with lots of action to keep it interesting. He keeps the story moving without wandering off into philosophical ramblings, which is what has turned me off to this genre. Frankly, after reading this book, I'm going to read some of his other books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In a world where Man is the enemy and has not been seen in aeons, a young watermot grows up with no more dreams than to be a farmer and marry his love. When his love betrays him, Thru Gillo takes his life in a new direction by studying with the Assenzi. But fate has even more changes in store for him. Suddenly he finds himself in a battle, not only for his life, but for the very survival of his race. And who is he battling, but the ancient, awful enemy, Man. <P> Man believes the watermots are dumb animals, no matter they have a civilization, a language, arts, and scholars. But Man is about to find out that the watermots are much, much more than they seem. <P> Christopher Rowley fills his books with war and battle and adventure. He writes as if he is himself immersed in the fight. Compelling and dynamic, The Ancient Enemy, the first book of Arn, showcases Rowley's dramatic talent. <P>Rickey R. MalloryWas this review helpful?
