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."
