Really enjoyed the first book in this series. Classic D&D style story. ( )

I definitely enjoyed his book. Wills character was a different sort from other young male protagonists. I liked the story and will be reading the sequels, but as the story came to a head, the climax was a bit lackluster in my opinion. ( )
