Tolkien meets Harry Potter in the first of this three book series. Reiffen's Choice harkens back to the traditional fantasy tales of old. Fun and entertaining, it's a good read, albeit not entirely original.
Outpost earns a solid four rockets from me. I liked the characters, the story, the planet, and the direction the author is going with all of it. It’s a good science fiction series you should add to your reading list.
Lord of the Fire Lands by Dave Duncan continues the story begun in The Gilded Chain and ends with a twist that so surprised me I didn't wait long to pick up the next in the series. Duncan continues to impress!
