Oh wow. After reading this, The Aduramis Chronicles are set to become one seriously epic masterpiece!

I don’t really like the fantasy genre. I started the book with a negative thought at the back of my mind that the book wouldn’t be for me and I’d give it up within a few pages. Hell was I wrong !

The writing is fabulous. Whether it’s a battle, a ritual, or a landscape that is described, you just feel like you’re there, and you get to feel for the characters.

But what I really enjoyed most of all is the work around the characters. You’re introduced to them gradually, which really helps when you’re not used to dealing with orcs, elves, giants and all that, and there is no pressure trying to remember who’s who all the time, so you can actually focus on the book. The other great thing is that Harrison allows you to get acquainted with the characters, but gives you just enough information to complete the story without getting you lost in sub-stories. That allows you to keep track of the main plot, and this while raising your curiosity about some of the characters, their past, and what made them who they are. And I sincerely hope that these questions that came up in my head will be answered in the next 15 stories. Because I sure am going to read every single one of them.

My first thought was that it was a really ambitious plan. And it is. But it seems Harrison’s got it all under control, and methinks those Chronicles as a whole are going to be something rather awesome.

Just saying: I actually decided to finish this book instead of dropping it because a book I waited to come out for the past year was published a few days ago. But I didn’t. I had to finish this one first. That’s how much I liked it.

Can’t wait for the next book to come out 🙂
