5 stars!

Wild, magical fantasy in the spirit of Dungeons and Dragons!

Brief synopsis: A Demon's Quest: The Beginning of the End kicks off the 3 volume Fantasy collection with a bang! I was drawn in quickly with the magic of Gilex and can't wait to find out how things go with the Blood Knights and his war on Togan. Then we are taken into the situations of Torhan and Jacko and it begins to have a slight taste of Game of Thrones, where I can imagine how these groups and other fantastical characters are going to eventually come together in later volumes. Interesting things are drawing people to the town of Mirkin.

Originality: The author has done a wonderful job creating an original fantasy tale and is able to paint the vision of the adventure in the reader's head with just the right pace. The fight scenes are fast and engaging and not overdone. Danger is at every turn with everything from giant ants to nasty half swine/half men warriors. As this is the first volume, I do not know where the story will take us, but I am definitely sticking around for this ride.

Characters & Plot: The author crafted interesting characters that drew me in right away. Each group that I met along the way had their own story happening that was interesting in itself. My favorite was probably Gilex because he was unpredictable and I love the magic he was engaging in. He was also the most mysterious. Then there is Torhan, who is worried for his friend Jacko and gets drawn into his own mystery when a magical scabbard and dagger mysteriously appear in his room. The owner is dead and someone must answer for the murder. Then there is Jacko who is training hard to climb the ranks of the robes, but has to embark on a new mission after someone close to him is killed.

Recommendation: This goes well with a stein of ale and wild game! I highly recommend A Demon's Quest: The Beginning of the End if you enjoy edge of your seat fantasy adventures that twist and twine through an epic story.
