A new and original fantasy epic Aug 29, 2006
Wow. Just ticked off this spanking new title by newbie writer Mr Alan Smith. I found this an unusual and original story that makes for compulsive reading. There's an excellent blend of surrealism vs normality; reality vs fantasy in this bizarre yet tremendously intriguing first episode, as the real world collides with the wierd but fascinating concepts of Mr Smith's dream world. The writing is fresh but incredibly accomplished dotted with some fabulous contemporary poetry and short prose, some of which are the finest bits of short creative writing i've read. This is a very imaginative and appealing book centred around a classic cast of good guys battling themselves and some strange and slightly disturbing nightmarish nasties. The plot moves at pace with plenty of twists and turns as some fascinating and intriguing concepts start to develop as the strange fantasy world is revealed. Although clearly for younger adults this is a fresh idea that held my attention, left me enthralled and enamored, and filled me full of questions which i'm dying to get answered from the second installment. A worthy read if you're looking to break into something new, original and different in the line of fantasy fiction.
