Reviews - What do customers think about The Grundilini: FROM THE CHRONICLES OF AUDELAE?
But will today's youth like it? Jun 25, 2007
This is a nice little quest story intended for young adults. It reminded me of George MacDonald, which a Christian author will take as a compliment, but also means that the story is perhaps not as original as it might be.
I have two main reasons for not rating it higher. One, I doubt that it will have wide appeal to the intended audience, people born into the world of the 1990s. After all MacDonald (1824-1905) lived in the 19th century.
Second, the editing is unforgivably sloppy. Again considering the intended readers, many of whom are still in school, editors should make doubly sure to correct grammatical mistakes and awkwardness of style. Unfortunately no one seems to have checked.
My recommendation to young people who enjoy fantasy fiction is to check out Sharon Shinn's young adult novels or the Gregor the Overlander series by Suzanne Collins instead.
