Review: Shadows: Book of Aleth, Part One by by Michael Duncan
This debut novel by Michael Duncan is a fantasy novel far surpassing anything I've ever read. I read a lot of Tolkien and Le Guin and this is right up there with them.
The characters spring to life off the page. Vivid descriptions pull you deep into the amazing world Rev. Duncan weaves on the pages. Sword fights, dwarves, elves, deamons and horras. A gripping tale of good and evil where you never know who the good guys are and when you think you know what’s happening, another twist takes you by surprise.
My only complaint is having to wait for book two.
If you only pick one fantasy novel to read this winter, it should be this one.
