  A cool, Dark Ages fantasy! , 12/12/2004
Reviewer: D. S. Burton
This book is set in the Dark Ages in a world with many fantasy creatures. We find Randall Thorn's own unique vision of gargoyles, trolls, elves, dragons, goblins, fairies, and the undead, as well as common folk. His visions of these beings are described in such a manner that you feel as though you are standing next to them. The story centers around the main character, Mere, and his long struggle with his faith. A large part of the story involves his friend, Lod, and then Lod's brothers, Gar, then Zor. Mere sets off with Lod on a journey along which they encounter many obstacles. Through their struggles, their beliefs are tested. Finally, Mere must confront fears that reach as far back as his childhood when he seeks to help a long lost love. Will Mere prevail, or will his faith falter? Will the encouragement of his friends and his own beliefs strengthen him, or will his questions and doubts weaken his resolve and cause his downfall? To find out, you will have to read Mr. Thorn's vividly descriptive, sometimes amusing, and wonderfully imaginative, story. The end gets a bit scripture heavy, but that is part of two characters having a theological discussion. Pick up a copy. D.S.Burton
