Reviews - What do customers think about The Black Flame?
If you enjoy Raymond Feist .... May 30, 2008
... Then The Black Flame is for you. Mackellar shares Feist's fast paced approach to writing. And while there are fantasy clichés in Black Flame, Rob, it has to be said, makes them his own just as Rayomnd has for decades. I really enjoyed Mackellar's characters. There's a degree of complexity that lifts the book above many and holds the promise fulfilled in the works of fantasy writers like David B Coe and George RR Martin. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Typical fantasy Sep 12, 2007
The Black Flame is Mackellars first work, and although it may introduce him as a budding respectable author, this novel is just as normal as fantasy gets. A human with spells, an elf, a dwarf, and some beautiful women team up to fight evil. Although he writes well, his novel concept is just too consistent with what every fantasy novel has become.
Beautifully drawn characters, an action packed adventure and a climactic conclusion, what more could you ask? Jun 5, 2007
As a fan of the fantasy genre, it is a pleasant change to encounter some original characters in the form of dwarves, elves and wizards that are not of the stereotypical, Tolkienesque variety. The plot too shows originality, although based on a successful quest formula, with excitement and action throughout.
