Expedition is a simple tale of a doomed expedition to an island of demon-like creatures, death in the air, and an evil power deep in its bowels. The expedition is led by a proven warrior accompanied by a grumbling wizard. They are on a mission to discover the secrets of this island for King Eidon. There is much gruesome death, exciting fights, and a hint of love and tragedy. The ending sets up the sequel with the promise of conspiracy and intrigue ahead. The final fate of the expedition’s survivors remains the island’s secret. For now.
I've given it 3 stars because there are some editing issues and the characters could be more fully defined, but this short story nicely sets the scene for the main story to follow. I did like the slightly archaic writing style, it suits this fantasy world.
