Another book review 🙂
I had the pleasure of reading Gryphon of the Hidden Realm. I like fantasy, heroic fiction type novels.
In all honesty, I struggled with it. There were times I had to force myself to continue. I don’t like slow paced books, and this one was especially slow. The author does have a very interesting idea and it is well written, just so slow. There are so many details, although I could probably paint you a picture from all the details, enough is enough. What’s funny about this is before I had a toddler pulling on my leg, I would have enjoyed all the details. Now, it seems like I need less fluff and more story. I plan on reading the rest of the series though because I love stories like this and I love gryphons.
From Amazon: Female gryphons are disappearing, abducted by the evil elves, the rulers of the Nomoi Empire. Hwedolyn must find out what is happening to them. He meets partisans, men, and must question ancient lore if he is to survive. The story begins when a young orphan boy, a serving hand at the tavern high in the mountains, knows that every new moon, a barrel of mead is left out on the plateau, and in the morning it is gone and two goats are left as payment. Who or what is it that collects the mead on this, the darkest night of the month? He decides to stay awake one night and see what manner of monster it is. In this, Robert Denethon’s second book in the Gryphonomicon Gryphon Dragon Histories, the story of Hwedolyn the gryphon and Gwendolyn his eyrie-mate continues.
