This installment of Jesse Jameson leaves a little something to be desired. The plot is rambling, the character development underdone, and Wright becomes too bogged down in the use of alien words.
However, all is not lost; there are passages that provide glimpses of solid good writing. The pacing of the novel moves well. In addition, no one can fault Wright in the imagination field.
The book is at times scary and at other times humorous. This is a useful skill for a writer, knowing when and where not be heavy-handed so that you know when to let the boom fall.
Jesse Jameson’s journey through the land of the trolls and witches is eventful and in places downright hair-raising. If you are a fan of Wright’s previous forays, then by all means go out and get this one for your collection.
