Críticas

In High Fantasy Land, a magician's apprentice sets about the bothersome task of finding a magic ring and rescuing a princess.

The early chapters of The Ring of Allaire are not without charm -- the protagonist is accompanied by some wonderful talking animal companions, and the tone is dryly funny -- but the rest of the book is rote and tedious.

Reviews on the internet kept mentioning what a good book this was and how funny it was.So when I finally decided to buy from an used book site this was a given.

I was sorely disappointed though.

I am not sure wich humor the reviews were refering to,sure there is a lot of wording that makes you go "that was cleverly put" But still it doesnt make it humorous.

The world building was a bit sparsely described and I didnt connect with the characters.

I could have felt for more for the characters if they were a bit more wellrounded and I could have immersed myself more into the world if I had gotten to see more of it.

It all felt a bit thin.

Its not among the worst books Ive ever read its just that it was all a bit bland.

I read this trilogy 30 years ago, and it's still just as good now as it was then. It may not have the meat that some readers want in a novel, but what it lacks in pages in more than makes up for in the writing and characters.

Susan Dexter does a much better job with the second novel of the Winter King's War. She devotes a lot more attention to details, fleshing out our heroes, adversaries and newer characters, as well as the land of Calandra itself.
