ABOUT THE AUTHOR (from Goodreads)
were fun, man-wolves, a tree-person and his minions, and of course, the sword Excaliber. I wasn't particularly happy about one thing the author did regarding the sword at the end of the book, but I can't say more than that because I will spoil the book, but it didn't seem to make any sense to me and even in fantasy stories, I like things to make some sense at least.
