Seventh Decimate by Stephen R. Donaldson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is my first exposure to Stephen Donaldson, and honestly...not quite sure what to think. It is an enjoyable read. I really like the concept., but the language is a problem with me. Before I get slapped in the head, there is NO doubt the man is a talented writer, it is just the language has a very dry feel to it, there is a great deal of passages full of 10 dollar words and gold plated phrasing when you very well could make it lot cleaner. THAT is a problem with me, If you try to talk over my head and its not necessary, I won't bother with you.
If you are a fan of epic fantasy, you will probably enjoy this. Will you be clamoring for the next book? that remains to be seen.
