I think this book was trying to be scary but in fact it wasn't, in fact it was a bit bland as far as fantasy goes. At the heart of all legends lies a sense of wonder . . . the perception of awe-inspiring power . . . the recognition of something larger than life. Here you will find heroic action and adventure blended with daring excursions into the hearts of depravity, lust, beauty, and grandeur, all seamlessly woven into legends bound for the 21st century and beyond.
