What a delightful adventure story! I thoroughly enjoyed becoming immersed in D.R. Casselman’s world of Narda, learning its geography from the map, meeting the characters, learning the language in the superb glossary, and especially finding how to pronounce all the various names. When I read, I “hear” the narration and dialogue, and when there are strange spellings that I don’t know how to pronounce, I enjoy the story less. But the author has provided us with a complete guide to this wonderful world. The first few chapters went slowly as I constantly referred back to the glossary and the map to get my bearings. But now I can pervade this new world, and I’m so looking forward to the next three books in the series!!
