Story is well enough written, but feels like a small chapter in a much bigger story. There are 2 more short pieces based on the same group of characters, but it feels incomplete. However, it felt like a good ole rollicking adventure party story and was enjoyable.
Found this book listed in the Fantasy category, which it really isn't, however my discovery was fortuitous. After a bit of a slow start, I found myself totally caught up in the search for the soul of 'Rabbi' Goodman. The sort of story that takes up residence inside you and will remain...always.
The sequel to Baby Muran. As before this story feels like a little snippet of something larger. It is a direct sequel to Baby Muran, but even that felt like we picked up a novel at chapter 15, and this likewise feels like there is missing material on both ends. I genuinely like these characters and am a bit frustrated that we see them as if illuminated by a single strobe flash.
Alright now...the first two stories (Baby Muran and The Statue) had an incomplete unfinished feel to them, but this is extreme. It is an unfinished thought. I'm not sure what the point was in presenting this one in such a cut off, unfinished manner. There wasn't even time to begin to form an opinion. I would actually like to see more of these characters, but...
Loved it! Combines the elements I most love from both David Eddings and George R R Martin. This author creates a living breathing world, the characters are real people that you miss, when they are not around, the wit and humor make reading it pure joy, and it is not completely predictable. You will be shocked and surprised on more than one occasion. Well done, I'm glad there is more to read by this author. I will will be visiting his material often.
