Someone has just given Origins of the Never a review. I'm told it's a really good one so at the moment I'm trying to catch all my Christmas decorations. They are all falling down as Colin's head expands. I really wish you people would stop doing this.
I suppose you want to know what it says as well don't you? Well, it's against my better judgement but here you are:
This is a really neat prequel for Souls of the Never and I enjoyed it. It forms a great background for the first in the series and is a steady, fascinating read. It’s well written and holds the reader’s attention easily. I love the imagery of a world protected from ambition and greed by a special kind of magic and especially appreciated the way the author wrapped the elements of good and evil together in a finely woven ribbon of destruction. It was different from the usual integral bad character making everyone’s life a misery and concentrated more on a latent hidden evil that works its way into a decent man’s character through emotional hurt. That’s what real life is like and it resonated with me.
