Champions of the Dragon
(Epic Fallacy #1)
by Michael James Ploof (2017)
Murland Kadabra has always dreamed of becoming a great wizard. However the young apprentice has yet to successfully cast a single spell. But when the Most High Wizard Kazimir chooses him to be one of the five Champions of the Dragon, Murland’s life changes forever.
This was sold a comic fantasy. But it’s not that funny. It has a minimal wry sense of humour. This manifests mainly in the character names and situations. Many of them being direct rip-off from other books. An it soon becomes apparent that the who story is a variation of ‘Lord of the Rings’.
Bute despite this, it is well written and fast paced. So it works as an epic fantasy story. And it does lead to the next book.
