I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. It is absolutely amazing. The characters are well thought out and developed. The plot is engaging and absolutely hilarious at times.
Evan is the character you just have to love. The book starts out rough but he protects another and gets mysteriously thrust into a new realm, one of fairies, dwarves, elves and trolls. In order to get back to the human realm and his family he must complete 3 tasks for the elven queen. Piece of cake right? Not even a little, each task is more difficult than the last and with little support Evan must learn to negotiate deals to learn other’s magic to use in his quests. What happens though when those who deal like to try to twist words? Be careful of the words used to make deals after all most of these magical creatures are only in it when it benefits them more than you.
I really enjoyed how Evan, unlike his brothers, resorts to solving the problems with peaceful solutions rather than violence. He is a very careful yet resourceful person who will need all his smarts to make it out of this realm. I could not put this book down and just had to keep reading one more chapter to find out what happened next. If you like fantasy books with some mystery, action, adventure, and comedy then this is definitely the book for you. I will be recommending this book to many friends, it is that good.
