I was duly warned. Donaldson loves to write unlikable characters. He most certainly continues this trend in his latest book Seventh Decimate. The main character, Prince Bifalt, is completely and utterly infuriating at times. Funnily enough he reminded be rather too much of someone I know in the real world (I ain’t gonna name names) which isn’t really want you want to see in your fantasy heroes. Yet, when I closed the book after finishing the last page, I found that I actually liked the book. In fact I liked it quite a bit.
Such a great time of year for me book-wise. With Christmas and my birthday being so close together you have the makings of an excellent holiday book haul! Mrs NW took a sneaky photo of my bedside table and posted it here on the blog which gave some of these away already *grumpy face*.
