Book Review: The Darkslayer: Wrath of the Royals by Craig Halloran

darkslayerI liked this book. It is so much like the old fantasy adventure stories from my youth that I felt like I was in a time warp. Imagine the great stories of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser and you will have an interesting parallel to this book (Now, don’t think I am saying this is on the level of the Icon books, but very similar in story and structure)

The book is full of action and keeps you at the edge of your seat, wondering what is going to happen next. Sometimes however, this can create a meandering feel to it. Each episodic scene could sometimes feel disconnected to the overall plot line.

I enjoyed the characters and their relationships to each other. I would have liked to see a little more development, but I don’t think that this book was designed for that.

It is a fun, romping read in a well-developed setting that keeps your interest, without a ton of deep thinking—Just as it was designed. I suggest you read this book, if you enjoy tales of daring-do!

I’ll keep the lantern lit.
