I'm not usually into epic fantasy books, but this one kept me reading from the first page to the last. The author, Mr. Hausker, wrote a wonderful book. The plot and the characters fit well with each other. There were a few very small errors but that didn't affect the book at all.
The character, Damon was always low on self esteem. Unusually, it made him the person he was meant to be. He learned to wonder why he did the things he did and the people around him that he thought he knew. The low self esteem helped him grow as the character in the book. At the beginning I didn't care much for Damon. He didn't have any self worth or self confidence but as the story went on and he grew I started to like him more and more as a character in the book. The author did a wonderful job with the relationship and how they grew and changed as the reader continues. The author took the side where the characters didn't get everything they wanted. If the book had been written where they did get what they wanted, the book wouldn't have been nearly as good. I think I'm going to have to add more epic fantasy books to my reading list. The author wrote a very good book with well developed characters, plot and a surprise ending that makes the reader want to read more. That's just what I'm going to do.
I was given a complimentary copy of KRAGAN from the author, Dennis K. Hausker for my view of the book.
I would give this book 4 STARS.
