I got this book because I've always been surrounded by D&D from my brothers and husband and from the other reviews it seems like I would like it. I'm also a big fantasy fan in general. I wasn't let down at all by this book. It had exactly the elements I was looking for in a fantasy book. The characters were dynamic, likable and even amusing at times, especially Melegal.
The plot was exciting and sucked me into reading it right away which was great. So many times I get bored in a book within the first few pages, but not with this one. This story is solid and action packed. There is never a dull moment in Darkslayer! After I finished reading it, I quickly bought book 2 because I wanted to read more about the adventures and characters. I have questions that needed to be answered and I look forward to continuing the saga.
