Wow – so much love for this book! Honestly had a hard time putting it down and if you like your fantasy with some humor this is the book for you!
It starts by plainly addressing the trope of the ‘chosen’ young person who is magically whisked off to a fantasy land. In this case, a smart-mouthed young man whos heroes journey takes many a delightful turn. The book is dialogue heavy, which is great because it’s witty, fast-paced and laugh out loud funny. While there is a lot of familiar ideas and plot points, Brennan also pointedly avoids and subverts common themes.
I wish I could read it again for the first time.
