This debut novel from John C Stannard is a real gem. It is a gripping tale told with sharp wit and unique comedy. The word play is excellent and keeps you smiling and “on your toes” all the way through.The characters are memorable and their names worthy of a Dickens novel. It was a very enjoyable read and I would recommend it to anyone, child or adult, who likes Tolkien-esk fantasy laced with rich wit and humour. Definitely a Five Star for me.
