Daily Book Talk

Foundling by D.M. Cornish

Robert Jordan's recommendation and the cover got me a little more excited than I should of. Cornish creates an interesting world and I'm sure if I read more it will become deeper with each stroke he paints and strand he weaves. Comparing to Tolkien went a little far though. Neat monsters and the monster hunters seem to have cool capabilities.  Didn't fall in love with the protagonist.  He is your typical picked on orphan who just needs a chance to prove himself.  The first book was released in parts, so Foundling seemed to end midstream.  Very good.
