I gave four stars, due to the book being rough around the edges with the grammar mistakes and the rough start. However, the story itself is five star. It kept me entertained, wanting to read more and more of each page well into the night with the "ooh what happens next" frame of mind. It was easy to allow myself to fall into the story and the characters. The writer did great with giving each character their own personality and life. The two Wizard brothers had me laughing every time they came to the page with their disputes with each other and their own personal dualism. My favorite characters were the Penions, They added a little more adventure to the story, like Ewoks to Star Wars.
If you are wanting a good escape from reality, this is a good read, just struggle through the first chapter and you'll star to get hooked. I do hope that the author continues to write more of the story, as he has many characters to continue on with. It is worth the buy.
