After reading the summary on the back cover, none of us wanted to read the book.
At the top it says, "Apocalypse Now meets The Lord of the Rings in a bold new fantasy from the acclaimed author of the Iron Elves trilogy…" (Publishers Weekly)
All of us liked the author's acknowledgements at the end. He writes about his mates who play Hobbit: Kingdom of Middle Earth with him. Most of all we liked this "Finally, I wish to acknowledge and commend all the veterans I have known over the years. These men and women, whether they fought in Normandy, Khe Sanh, Fallujah, Helmand province, or any number of battle fields around the world, did so knowing that they risked their lives so that we might live and enjoy a world free from the violence and death they faced. To thank them is hardly sufficient. And so I honor their service, and I remember them." So do the GHPALS.
