This was a fun, light read. I appreciated it because of my gaming background. It had that same feeling of being in the dungeon, or being a character in a world.
As literature, it didn't really grab me. I find books where everything just "works out" to be a bit suspect. But having said that, if there were sequels, I'd happily read them.

Two guys looking to join the Guild. Jaikus being the reckless, impetuous, go for what he wants and damn the consequences fellow. Reneeke is more the level-headed, and though he wants nothing more than to remain on the farm, he tags along with his friend in Jaikus' bid to join the Guild.
This story made me laugh. The scene where Jaikus tries to "snooker" an old lady backfires. Completely loved that part. I have an aunt that is exactly like that. When Jaikus tries to get a sword is pretty good, and of course the encounter with the trolls.
What really sold me on this story was the interaction between the two main characters. Theirs is a friendship that endures all hardship. The supporting cast: Charka, Lady Kate, and the ever-in-a-bad mood Seward are true to themselves throughout.
Lots of action, dungeon crawling, and treasure.
I'd love to throw back a mug of 'kult with Charka and hear tales of daring do.
Great story. Hope there's another coming out shortly.
