The Hunt For The Eye of Ogin is a classic tale of adventure with sincere, endearing and often surprising character as well as just enough plot twists to keep the reader on his/her toes. While The Hunt For The Eye Of Ogin starts a bit slowly, once the action begins the reader is irresistibly sucked into author Patrick Douds exciting and refreshingly original realm (think Woogans and Truans as opposed to the more clichÃ© dwarves and elves). In places, The Hunt For The Eye Of Ogin seems to be the typical, predictable adventure story, but Doud will often deviate from the expected story line with a sudden twist and the ending is both surprising and fitting. Moreover, it is rare to have an author with such a clear love of language, and the poetic style with which Doud paints the story is both beautiful and effective (save for the odd sentence here and there that runs on a bit too long). Overall, anyone interested in high adventure would do well to pick up/order The Hunt For The Eye Of Ogin; it is a thoroughly entertaining read and a promising beginning for the series to come.
