Ingeniously weaving together citations from a variety of sources - including Yeats, Milton, Joyce, Poe, Baudelaire, and many more - FEASTING WITH PANTHERS tells the tale of the warrior poet Catalan, who finds himself at the center of a War Game between two powerful sorcerers. Guided by clues hidden in dreams, Catalan and the agents of the War Game must seek the missing pieces of an enchanted chess set in a quest complicated by deceit and treachery, in which nothing is what it seems.

I liked this fantasy better than any other fantasy I have read. It is excellent and with a surprise ending. The author did an excellent and well thought-out job. Interesting plot of course and well written.
Let me start by saying the in addition to being a bibliophile (one who loves books), I am a Logophile (one who loves words). I have had a life-long love affair with words. I love new and unusual words and finding out the meaning of words. I used to get in trouble in school because my vocabulary was so advanced for my grade that teachers used to think I either copied someone else’s paper or had my parents do it for me (as if that would happen). This book is perfect for a logophile. There are marvelous words, almost all real honest to goodness words, that trip off the tongue. If you or your reader has a limited vocabulary do not worry as almost all new and unusual words are explained immediately following the word. This story is set in a fantasy land reminiscent of Middle Earth. The story is told from the point of view of a poet soldier who is not initially part of the quest, but is quickly pulled in. The soldier is quickly drawn into the quest, but the story is focused on a trio of young men who are the quest takers. At times the plot got confusing, and there are a lot of different people in the story to manage remembering. In addition, at times the story is confusing or drags, but overall the story is a good one. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars, if only for the wonderful language.
