Absolutely hilarious - the best phrase is "hammering small steaks into the ground". The author obviously relies too heavily on a spell-checker which delivers wrong words that sound like the word he means. The other problem is exactly and consistently reversing the correct use of apostrophes - "it's" as a possessive pronoun, "his fathers books", and Necromancer's as a plural. The other linguistic problem is the strange reversal of letters (repeatedly "preform" for "perform"), that made George W Bush and his daddy laughing stocks (a bit like the "nucular" beloved of so many American politicians).
Having said that, he is a fantastic and original story-teller, and the "Acolyte" is worth every cent. I couldn't put it down until I had finished it, and I hope that he will write a sequel.
