I have read so many fantasy novels in my life that it takes quite a bit to supprise me. The far kingdoms however did just that. The story was very original and the ups and downs were many and varied. The book does drag on a little in a few places but otherwise keeps you on the edge of your seat. I happened to pick it up in a doller store and thought to my self that i could give it a good home. I didn't realize how truly entertained i'd be. One word of caution though the book is quite racey and has detailed decriptions of sexual acts and should not be read by those under the age of 16-17 depending on the the perents prefrences!!! P.S. the second book A Warriors Tale is even better and has a female protaganist which is a wonderful contrast to the first and gives a fresh take on the world you're diveing into.
