    1. Typical of the Ethshar books, the protagonist, Kelder, is an average person who finds adventure where they least expect it. After an encounter with a fortune teller, Kelder believes a grand destiny awaits him. When he meets Irith the Flyer, a girl with magic powers, he thinks he is on his way. This book gives a lot of detail on Ethshar, specifically the northern Small Kingdoms. It also brings back some characters from the Misenchanted Sword. However, Kelder's story isn't very interesting and Iri [...]

    2. I have no explanation for why I like this series as much as I do.They're just fun, SMALL stories that, as a general rule, have nothing to do with grand quests or missing heirs or the fate of kingdoms or worlds. They're just amusing anecdotes about completely average people getting stuck in rather awkward situations and trying to come up with a way out of them.This particular one is about a farm boy who decides he's going to "see the world" (or at least the highway) before being chained down to l [...]

    3. I went to read this book and realized that I had already read it before I starting organizing things here on GoodReads. I found it was a fun book, simple easy fantasy to devour in large gulps. I enjoy the world and think that there is much to be said for knowing what you are getting when you start off an Ethshar book.

    4. Another amazing Ethshar book by Lawrence Watt-Evans. In this story, we meet a young adventurer named Kelder of Shulara, who is just following his destiny. If you like the other Ethshar booksyou'll love this one! Very adventurous!

    5. Another Ethshar tale with small stakes. I found one of the main characters to be particularly annoying; though I suspect that's Watt-Evans' point, it doesn't make me eager to reread the book, though I do own a copy and wouldn't part with it.

    6. I liked the way this book brings characters together from earlier books. It is fun and fills in more gaps to the Ethshar story but lighter than some in the series. I look forward to reading the next book about this fascinating world.

    7. Taijilibrarian"s review pretty much sums it up for me; this is one Magic of Ethshar story that left me unsatisfied and wanting to know more about at least one of the characters.

    8. Better than The Blood of a Dragon, but still not up to some of the other entries in the Ethshar series. The next book in the series though, Night of Madness, is my absolute favorite.
