The good thing about this book is there is plenty of action. Malus kills a lot of elves and other things in this book. There isn't a slow part in the book.
The bad thing is it doesn't really go anywhere. Malus (main character) goes on a quest and I wasn't really certain why. At times I was wondering where this was going and getting bored, even though there is a lot of action. I can't say more without spoiling it but I will say the book redeems itself to the point that I will read the next one.
Overall, not a bad book but not as good as the reviews I read on Amazon.
