What other readers are saying about this title:
Despite the fact that this is great writing, and I mean that whole-heartedly, Mel Odom takes it too close to Lord of the Rings so many times it’s almost as if this was a writing exercise for him to see how close he could write to. The plot and the backstory for the hobbits (or as Odom calls them, Dwellers), are different, yes, but all the events that occur are drawn directly from Tolkien. There’s a Dragon in a cave, A spider they defeat, dwarves drink and get plastered, and the Mysterious man (aragorn) falls in love with an Elf (i’m assuming at this point). But the writing is great. No sarcasm whatsoever there. I’d read it, but only if you can stand the fact that the events are so close to Lord of the Rings, you will guffaw. 8/10.
