Rarely do I buy a book on a whim without recommendations or at least having heard of the author. I'm glad I did.
When The King Comes Home is unlike the other fantasies I read. I was pleasantly surprised to find that despite it being so short, it had a crisp world and characters; something most fantasy authors need 700+ pages of lengthy description to succeed in.
My only qualms being I wish the book had been slightly longer if only because I would have wanted more time with some of the characters, and the climatic ending would have been better had it not happened so quickly. It felt rushed. Otherwise, I enjoyed this book.
