If you’re a fan of fantasy novels you will probably enjoy this book. It’s a brief tale about a 3 mysterious characters, Halsedric, Tulvgir, and Herodiani; and their mission to search a treacherous tomb(I know, obviously. It’s not like it’s not in the title). Our heroes are led by an old guide, Drahm. A man who has a very interesting way of speaking to say the least. That may be a hangup for some people but I rather enjoyed it. I imagined him speaking with a Gaelic accent. The book started off a little slow for me but I quickly found myself getting into the story and the characters. By the end of the book I was certainly longing to know more. Always the mark of a good story. This book has plenty of action and suspense, with a healthy dose of intrigue but not a lot of comedy or romance.
Overall, I found it to be a quick and easy read however, I can understand how some people may have a problem with the dialect of some of the dialogue. That and the slower start are my only real gripes with the book. So if you’re looking for a quick fantasy read this is a great way to go. Now we just have to wait for the sequel.
