Has a story that progresses with the frenetic energy of its furry characters. Lots of adventure and heroism ala Lord of the Rings. The protagonists are pretty straightforward (the intrepid hare-maiden Dotti is a great strong female character), but it was a very intriguing and engaging development that although the antagonists are clearly wicked, we get to see how some of them got that way and discover that they deserve to be pitied even though it's also obvious that they must be destroyed.

Another point this book has in common with the Lord of the Rings trilogy is how the inclusion of songs and ballads performed by the various characters is really integral to the atmosphere. A great touch!
