This is some very classic Fantasy literature. If you haven’t ever read it, you really should. I’ve read this series a few times, but it has been a while, so it was nice to go back into this world that I had kind of forgotten.
This follows the classic Hero Tale kind of structure. A young farm boy has been foreseen in prophesy and fated to save the world. He’s accompanied by a wide cast of characters that include two powerful and ageless sorcerers, knights, archers, spies, a feisty princess and the like. They all have an important role to play in helping the Hero save the world from the Evil God.
If this is a trope, then this is the daddy of all Hero Tale tropes, but it works. So I gave it 5 stars, one of those stars is for nostalgia, but that’s ok. 😉
