Search of the Lost (The Knights of Ezazeruth #1) 03, Oct

It is only natural for a writer to improve his work with the passage of time. A future work may lack some (or all) of the elements that hooked you up in the first place, but you can't deny that the author has matured and stepped up his game. What is not natural is to experience such an improvement in the length of a single book. Search of the Lost began as a three star, old-school and classic fantasy story, and finished as a perfect five, tragic and darkly-hued tale with well-laid plans gone chaotic and hopes grounded to dust.
