“I say, this fantastic craft you have built has transported us to a new world, Mr. Temperance, eh hem?”
“Yes, Ma’am, Miss Plumtartt, Ma’am! Gosh, we find ourselves among many mythological beasts of outrageous legend. It would take three of me to make just one of the dwarves that live around here.”
“Yes, quite, and I find that there is no shortage of troll, gremlin, or magical creature to assail us in our destined quest.”
“You sure are right about that, Ma’am. In fact, I think we have gotten embroiled in a sweeping, high fantasy saga of epic proportions!”
While trying to figure out a way to get home, they become friends with some dwarfs and a wizard who help them on their journey. Before they can move on to certain areas though, there are tasks that they have to perform so they not only can continue, but also so they will not get hurt or even eaten by some of the creatures there. However, sometimes even the friendliest creature can have wicked intentions for the newcomers.
The story is told as about 98% dialogue, which I didn’t realize it was going to be at first, even after reading the synopsis, but I quickly got the feel of it and could read it easily and enjoyed it. It also made for a very interesting way to tell the story. The humor in it was very well done too. Its humor and story reminded me a lot of the time of “The Skulduggery Pleasant” series and “Lord of the Rings.” The first half of the story was a little slow for me but the second half picked up and was a lot more enjoyable. However I would recommend checking out a sample first to see if you like that style of writing, because if you don’t then this may not be too enjoyable for you.
