THIS REVIEW IS A MERE WARNING! I WOULD HAVE WRITTEN A PROPER REVIEW IF IT WOULD BE WORTH IT. Apologies: I am sorry that this review is pretty childish but there is a reason for that. Check out the plot summarize in wikipedia if you are interested. THE PLOT IN A NUTSHELL: An annoying boy gets trained by a ranger and saves everyone. ... Morgarath, an evil war lord wants to revenge on a king with his Wargal (orc) army in a world similar to ours. Meanwhile, a young boy called Will becomes a rangers apprentice. Together they train, talk about boring generic stuff, train, walk around the country trying to progress the character development and the plot, TRAIN... In the end, Will saves the day. That's it. THE REVIEW: The first book is terrible. It is boring, the characters are generic and well, thats it! It is as clichÃ© as Eragon, and honestly, that should be enough as a warning. Even the fans of the series admit that the first books are bad. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. Sure the series progress and becomes slightly better after each book but honestly, it is not worth your time. I recommend this book to Eragon fans. Everyone else should avoid this like... HIV.
