I actually really liked it, and that's a bit of a surprise. I am a merciless critic of Tolkien-esque High Fantasy AND of child authors, but this book has a sense of humor and doesn't take the subject matter, or the author's writing, too seriously. That's a problem that I've noticed with teen authors like Christopher Paolini and Flavia Bujor--they take themselves far too seriously. This book is meant primarily to just be a funny light read, and it succeeds.
The main character is a wizard named Cade, a wimpy geek who faints at the sight of blood. Through a series of mishaps, he and five other equally unsuited characters wind up being chosen by the gods to get rid of a demigod called Kaos. They're chased from one side of the continent to the other by people who are out to kill them--either for their own personal amusement or because they've been hired by Kaos. Finally, they reach his stronghold, and --well, you'll just have to read the book to find out what happens.
The publishers' blurb compares FT to the Discworld books, but I would say it's more like Piers Anthony's Xanth books. Many random comedy segments are more anachronistic than satire, including things like psychoanalysis (and the inkblot test), personal trainers, IMing, online gaming (if you've ever played Everquest you're going to love this book), and people saying things like "oy gevalt." It has a lot of action, and I thought the fight scenes (which is pretty much three quarters of the book) were well done. It was well paced and gripping -- I pretty much picked it up and didn't put it down again until I reached the last page, despite various obstacles and complications. (For those of you who don't know, it's VERY hard to make a bologna sandwich with one hand.)
The areas in which Resnikoff stumbles a little are when he tries to get serious and take us into the characters' psyches. It's bit awkward, and doesn't completely fit with the humorous tone of the rest of the book. He also makes a couple of young writer gaffes (instead of using said, he gravitates toward 'interesting words' like shrieked, muttered, asked, berated, etc.) However, toward the end of the book, he had already started to improve, and I expect his next few books will just get better and better. There are also some typesetting errors, but it's nothing major and that's more the publisher's problem than his.
All in all, it was a very good satire of the archetypal quest fantasy. I give it a four stars out of five and I urge you all strongly to go out and read it.
