I loved the narrator of the story. He was funny and philosophical all at the same time. He would interject thoughts and facts at random times in the story, and I thought that they were a really nice break. I also loved his little introductions at the start of each chapter. I really hope the next books have this same style and that the chapters start off the same way. I thought it was really fun.
I will say that at some points I was thinking, “ok where is the action? When is the hero stuff going to start?” but then I remembered that this book is Prelude to a hero, so it was just setting the stage up for what I think is going to be a pretty epic series. Jaime Buckley has created such an interesting and complex world that some background information seemed necessary to get readers up to speed for this story. I do hope this means that in the next book we get to jump right into the a quest or something. That will be so exciting!
I love that we will be seeing more of Dax in the next book too. He seems so funny! Wendell and Dax should make quite the pair!
So while this book is more of an introduction to the series, I think it is worth reading because it does a really good job of allowing you to get to know the characters. I feel like I was with Wendell on this whole journey. I was confused when he was, and I was torn about what decision he should make. That is good writing. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the series goes!
