Not my kind of book. Bought it cause I have the next book in series and didn't realize there was a book one so put the second book away and ordered the first one. It's not an easy read and it's written with a lot of "old language" and it about the trip to where they are going. As a female, I really could care less about a bunch of grubby old time warriors fighting off the different evils they encounter. Not done with book yet and sure hope other book is better. I paid for the books so I'm reading them even if I don't like them

Before Leo Tolstoy tackled epics like "War and Peace," he crafted more intimate stories--he was an apprentice of his craft. Not David Bilsborough who offers a sweeping fantasy epic in his debut novel, "The Wanderer's Tale." The author should have followed Tolstoy's example--the ambition of this novel far exceeds his abilities.

The plot is nothing new. Dark lord seeks to regain power....motley group of heroes must defeat him...perilous quest. This is a familiar, perhaps an overly familiar tale and Bilsborough does not offer anything new here. His characters are not particularly interesting and he throws way too many adjectives at the reader. The namesake character-the Wanderer-is one of the worst leading characters I have ever stumbled across in fantasy literature. He is not a strong or an appealing character.

Even worse, Bilsborough seems more concerned with offering detailed descriptions of setting and strange asides--including a simply odd homage to the Q scenes in the James Bond films--than he is in advancing the plot.

There are some hints of promise. Bilsborough offers some unique places, creatures and people and there are moments when he grabs the readers attention. But this can only go so far. Bilsborough quickly retreats to the genre's clichés. He offers lousy poetry and songs. He gives common creatures in fantasy other names--and he does not show the language skills of a professional like Tolkien or even the logic and wit that Neal Stephenson revealed in "Anathem." Bilsborough downplays the role of women-the only ones who appear are evil. Even Tolkien gave women more of a role for good than Bilsborough did. It's odd to see in a novel published in 2007.

I think Bilsborough should have started smaller-fewer characters and a less ambitious plot-perhaps a dungeon crawl or a local threat story featuring 4 or 5 characters. Writers sometimes need to take baby steps as they start their journey. Bilsborough simply attempted to do too much and simply was not up to the task in this debut.

Characters are well drawn an behave like disgruntled, real people instead of unbelievable, cookie-cutter heroes. Some readers object to the flowery language, but I found myself laughing out loud at many of his less-than-flattering descriptions of the people and creatures encountered. His style is definitely unique, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Descriptions of places like the caves had me so engrossed that I completely forgot I was reading, and left me with a perfect visual memory, as if I had been there. The quest seems rather like an unpleasant job carried out by a bunch of coworkers that don`t get on so well, but are stuck with their lot. That may have helped me feel immersed in the story as much as I was. The narrative tone in the book is at times quite casual, and you can tell that the writer is enjoying telling the story. I read this immediately after Steven Erikson`s Malazan Book of the Fallen cycle, and was expecting to be vastly disappointed in whatever I read next. I was not. This is a good book that doesn`t fit a standard fantasy formula. The writing is idiosyncratic, but it can really be enjoyed on its own merits. I can`t accept the one star reviews. Seems to me there is a great deal to delve into for the openminded.

Bilsborough claims to be doing something new and fresh and wonderful. And strikes out on all three counts.

This isn't just standard derivative fantasy. This is horribly written; laugh-out-loud at the beaten to death tropes that weren't even fresh when J.R.R. Tolkien took up pen. The prose is so purple I wouldn't be surprised to hear it died of the gout. The usage of adjectives is overly florid at best. At worst, which it usually is, it is more like taking a thesaurus and picking the synonym with the most syllables. No matter how tenuous the usage in that particular sentencing.

Bilsborough does nothing to build any type of plot, let alone logic in character actions. A declaration of danger is made; typical group of companions forms with no real sense of reason and off they go vaguely a wandering. Instead of character development the author merely informs the reader as to their thinking. Motivations and dimension? Look elsewhere. Even slightly entertaining reading? Only if you like to laugh at someone. Cruelly. For several hundred pages. And do you really want to spend money laughing at Bilsborough's ineptitude?

It's too bad there isn't a zero star rating. Or even a negative. So don't consider this actually a 1-star rating. Consider it a negative five star rating. Next to Bilsborough, Goodkind and Newburgh look to be masters of their craft.
