This is definitely a fantasy novel.
 Being a Tolkien fan, I found many
days of enjoyable reading here in J
.S. Harrison_s world. This is a pla
ce that is crowded with Fairies, Le
prechauns, friendly Trolls and Ogre
s, Wizards, Knights, Dragons, Vampi
re assassins, large evil black rabb
its and ghouls along with Men, Dwar
ves, Elves and Trofkins.

With an anti-racist sentimism, the
author places many different races
together to embark on a journey tha
t may bring hope to the people of W
erdanbabadood and to save their wor
ld from the Evil Wizard, Sardego. T
his strange mixture of people go th
rough many trials and adventures to
 find the Knights, only to arrive a
t a time when so few were able to c
ome to their aide. Regardless of th
e odds, they carry on and work toge
ther in a desperate effort to break
 the magic staff of Sardego and end
 his war mongering.

Though everyone plays a very import
ant part in the interwoven web of e
vents, it is the Trofkins, a tree-d
welling people of writers and lover
s of food and mischief, who are the
  heroes of the world. This race was
  thought unlikely to produce heroes
, being a people of many social con
straints and clear definitions of w
hat is proper or not. Yet with war
on their doorstep, they had little
choice but place their only hope in
 their young chieftain-to-be, the o
ne Trofkin who seemed the least lik
ely to be responsible enough to acc
omplish this dangerous task. Young
Willowby goes far beyond any expect
ation the Trofkin could have had fo
r even the greatest of their kind.
He proves his worth to himself and
his people and gains the necessary
confidence to rule with a fair, yet
 just hand.

I very much enjoyed J.S. Harrison_s
 writing style. It was like being d
rawn into a big sitting room with a
 large fireplace, where a deep gran
dfatherly voice tells the story of
Willowby Went. Then without realizi
ng it, I felt sucked into the scene
ry and it was if I had become the c
ameraperson at a real, live histori
cal event. It was an effort to put
aside the book to carry on with my
own tasks!

Keep an eye out for future work by
J.S. Harrison folks! I have a feeli
ng he_s going to be one of the _gre
at_ writers of our era."
