OK. I liked the first book, "The Far Kingdoms", enough to read it a couple of times over the years. "The Warrior's Tale" wasn't bad also (good rolicking read). All of these are kind of epic-voyage-explorer fantasy books.
This wasn't as good as the original Almaric book, but it was similiar in concept/content/feel. Start with the far kingdoms.
BTW: there are several typos and from what I can tell they are universal across versions (google books has the same typos).
If someone wants to correct them, they are at these pages:
59 - missing dash - "was bringing his sword - a great two-handed blade up over his head...bedding itself (should be embedding itself...I think?)
63 - missing dash after "that would've made even more tongues wag"
169 - double colon..."instead of the expected: exlamation of:"
267 - Children you listen (missing italics, centering)
276 comma should be ? - "Are there any spells you could attempt,"
343 "At firs I didn't see" should be "first"
Decent read, nice finishing up of the Far Kingdoms story. Typos need correction though!
