    Avoid at all costs

    This was the absolute worst piece of drivel ever! It was pointless, choppy, and no one behaved properly. There was no sense of continuity or comraderie among the characters. There was no depth to any of them and I was hoping they would all die to end the story that much quicker.

    Highly Recommended

    This series is a very quick read. It is funny and witty. I enjoyed it very much. I bought it after reading the reviews and ignoring them. I was glad I chose to ignore them and they are not an accurate depiction of this series. I strongly suggest that you read the series.

    more from this reviewer

    Lacks Quality.

    Some bits of dialogue were funny, but not enough to make the story worth reading.

    The story feels more like a first draft than a finished story. The frequent point of view jumping is off-putting (one part jumped to one character's point of view for two sentences then back to where it left off.) There were frequent exposition passages, many of which I could not understand the purpose of, even 40 pages in.

    Entertaining Worth a read

    Loved the irreverent take on all aspects of society- political and religious. Very witty. Loved the quirky characters. Definitely not Tolkien but I was super entertained the whole way through. Only criticism was the abrupt ending. Felt like the author got up for a coffee break and forgot to come back

    Kinda quirky but a fun short read

    Unlike many reviews I read, I got a kick out of this little story. There is a lot of character building that happens in a short time and they are a quirky lot. I enjoyed the authors sense of humor and actually read a few passages to my spouse who is a Douglas Adams fan. To each his own but I thought it was kinda fun.

    Great storyline but...

    Hard to read. Grammatical errors are rampant. Story switches from past tense to present tense to future tense. If the author can get it together, it will be wonderful for readers everywhere.

    WOW! never thought it could be so bad!

    This is one of the worst novels I have ever attempted to read. Simple minded, no direction: a third grader could have structured a better story. One finds that the characters, story line, and events are haphazard at best. "a dragon appears" ... "dragon falls from sky"...WOW! What, who, why, where, when? Do these have no meaning anymore? One understands very quick why this book is free!

    A wonderfully strange story for those who want something different. I can't wait to read the others in this series.

    Something different

    It's a fantasy book that doesn't come across as stuffy or high-minded. It doesn't present the protagonists as morally unimpeachable, which is a nice change.

    Its ok

    I agree with what the others have posted. This is a free book (short), but still feel these things could've been caught & corrected either by the author or a good editor.

    Wasn't inspired to read very far

    I only got a few pages in, and couldn't bring myself to read any further. It's written in the present tense, third person, which is pretty awkward to read. Also, there's a difference between simple language and laziness. There was absolutely zero effort put into descriptions and actions. I'm glad I didn't pay for it.

    Lame

    I got this as a free book and after reading it, I knew why it was free. Other authors have done a much better job of this sort of genre. Don't waste your money on it.

    Frustrating to read

    The entire book seems to be written in present tense for some strange reason which is confusing to begin with and frstrating to continue. Also the entire thing is a simplistic as you can get with focus on action rather than on details and motivation. All in all this story isnt woth the headache to read it.
