First Review At the Tellist.com
Alan Salt is a witty writer with a sardonic spell to him, and he delivers an irreverent spin on fantasy with The Tainted Hive: Book One: The Cobblestone Druid. Certainly, this book would stand as wonderful fantasy on its own, for the world that Salt has crafted is lively and lived-in. But the humor that is draped around the town of Pawkett is sure to stick with readers, and compel them to tear through the story in record time. Salt also benefits from developing characters that readers enjoy following about, as seeing them in their quirky scenarios is sure to delight.
Salt creates a vibrant world that you won’t soon want to leave, and before you’re done thumbing through the pages of this tale, you’ll be eager for the next. Its magic and whimsy has true staying power, and we can only hope that Salt is hard at work on the sequel. If you’re looking for a lighthearted fantasy with a touch of darker humor, this is the book for you. Check out The Tainted Hive: Book One: The Cobblestone Druid on Amazon today!
