Exile (The Nandor Tales #1) 24, Jul


EXILE by Martin Owton is an interesting book which is somewhat difficult to review because there's almost nothing like it on the market today. If I had to make a comparison, I would say it's most like George R.R. Martin's Dunk and Egg stories with a dash of the early The Witcher tales. It's a story which manages to avoid feeling like every other fantasy novel out there by keeping the stakes relatively low and avoiding cliche. There's a few places he uses classic tropes but only a few places it drags.
