      In many ways this was a typical fantasy novel The story seems based on a typical dungeon crawl, and the acknowledgements by the author bear that out However the world is an imaginative one divided between a realm of chaos full of monsters and dark magic, while the other half is normal Those exposed to the chaos realm changed and mutated by it An evil sorcerer finds a way over the ward wall that separates chaos and normal realms There he grabs a mystical weapon, with which he plans to resurrect d [...]

      I really liked this book I didn t give it five stars because half way through the book they still hadn t even assembled a team to send to Chaos When they finally got to Chaos and their first battle, I felt like there were only 50 pages left, so it felt like the rest of the story was a bit rushed For a while there, I thought for sure that there would be a sequel to the book So I docked a star for the book making me question the length of the book Despite that, I really liked the author s descript [...]

      i really liked a Hero Born , specially for its originality the author did a great job on creating his own world with it s own creatures and it s own laws Of course, every story has been done before, it s how you tell it that makes the difference, and Stackpole does a splendid job of telling it in his own way Stackple has a wonderful sense of character development, and our hero progesses alot not only in his quest, but in maturity both socially and on the battlefield there is a wide range of char [...]

      I m about 2 3rd of the way through, and I m not going to bother finishing this There s much on my shelf that I d rather get to.It started out really well with an interesting premise, having the chaos behind the wall, and introducing characters and a realm warped by it but so little was done with it, as it was just brushed aside as evil, destroy it So many exceptions to the world were used just for the sake of pushing the plot and main character forward We re told early on and numerous times how [...]

      First of all, do yourself a favor and don t skip ahead in the book, you ll ruin it This story is Stackpole at his best An original setting, convincingly and logically written The author clearly considered the implications of the environment he created The foreshadowing was available without being obvious characters were well described and seemed to stay within prescribed personalities The only qualm I had with this book was that toward the end it was hard to keep track of who was alive, who migh [...]

      it feels like it took forever to get through this book I first read it years ago and held on to my copy because I really liked it reading through it again, it s still a good book but the problems with it become noticeable the imagry is very vivid but tends to go on and on and the dialog tends to be a bit stiff the most interesting thing, and what I remembered most over the years, was the twist at the end knowing it was coming didn t really ruin the story but made the authors attempts at forshad [...]

      This was is an interesting and entertaining read My only dislike is the main character seems to be a vehicle through whom the author is basically going See how smart that idea is I am so smart And this thing is witty, I m witty too See how witty I am Exempting that, I do own the book and reread it every now and again, and not because I dislike it.

      Your basic 80s I have a sword and a legacy RPG fantasy Nothing catching or compelling about it In fact, I probably remember from Weis sp and Hickman s first Dragonlance book another RPG story, which I only read once back when it first came out than I do from this book less than two months later.

    9. Kay says:

      I decided to try out Michael Stackpole after reading his X Wing Star Wars books This novel is awesome as are his books TALION REVENANT and ONCE A HERO Unfortunately, many of his other books I ve tried aren t as great.

    10. James Shrimpton says:

      Barring the pointless expositional initial chapter this started off well but then I found myself steadily revising my rating downwards as it went on Some great concepts but too flawed in their execution sadly.

    11. Holly says:

      Really good sword and sorcery tale Started maybe a bit slow but picked up quickly and kept me reading.

    12. Lisa says:

      Stackpole has a knack for taking basic fantasy themes, and twisting them to create a unique story This book is engaging and interesting.

    13. Rachel says:

      This book was ok I read it because Isaac liked it It has a pretty good surprise at the end I would recommend this book if you like fantasy.

    14. Naticia says:

      An enjoyable but flat fantasy, in classic style I can t say anything in this book really surprised me, but sometimes that s what you re looking for in a book.
