3.5 stars. A fairly typical fantasy world, but it has some interesting elements not done in others. Well written & good. The sequel is very good, too.

There aren't a lot of characters or weird names cluttering up the prose. The magic is very magical, but has an internal logic & the idea of inter-dimensional travel, as hackneyed as it is, came across well.

Daley is similar to Alan Dean Foster, IMO. Good reading for a rainy day; interesting, amusing & just generally fun. I never expect great works of art from him, but am always satisfied with the fare. ( )

This was a far better fantasy than I recalled. It's really held up well & had all the elements needed to make it an excellent one; action, romance, & excellent attention to the realities of war, although the hyperbole factor was quite high. The best fighters were also the rulers, so they tended to continually put themselves in harm's way. Kind of silly, like Kirk & the command crew of the Enterprise, but fun.

While the world is one with magic, there are other dimensions of which ours is one, so a few characters, 2 of the main ones, are from our world. That added a lot to the story. Not everyone was good or bad, either. While Good & Evil were forces in the world, some people were occasionally jerks & got put in their place. Very well done.

I can't say I was in love with the reader, but he didn't ruin it either. It was a bit more of a production than I like. Different voices for each character & some were hard to hear, the voice was low. The Hightowers were great. They sounded like Sean Connery & made me think of Highlander, which fit perfectly.

There is a sequel to this story, [b:The Starfollowers of Coramonde|1007332|The Starfollowers of Coramonde (Coramonde, #2)|Brian Daley|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1272906875s/1007332.jpg|993458]. I have it on audio & plan to listen to it soon. ( )

Light reading. Modern (Vietnam era soldier) man transplanted to a fantasy realm helps the deposed prince try and recover his realm. ( )

This book has a familiar theme of individuals from 'our' world who end up in a fantasy world, in the middle of a struggle between good and evil. The characters in this book are excellently done, the heroes are all larger than life and the action and plot are excellent. Reacher, Hightower, Katya, Andre, Gabrielle, Gil and Springbuck are some of my all time favorite characters. This really is an under-rated book, its one of my all time favorites. ( )
