This book is written in a very unique style I was unfamiliar with the author and went into it without high expectations I was pleasantly surprised It is expressed as it would be if a Japanese person with a thick accent would narrate in English The book is highly detailed and descriptive It is an exceptionally good fantasy story line If you enjoy fantasy I believe you will enjoy this.
