A bit dated now, with a fair sprinkling of cheesy lines and 'yeah, right' moments, but overall, a good read

Although formulaic, the setting is quite original. I thought the magic system needed more work because it seemed a bit corny, but still a good read. The author has also promised to finish this series before the end of time. Yeah!

Original and fascinating. A definite must-read for lovers of high fantasy.
