Okay I was confused when reading this book. I believe there was a mix up. The title and discription of the book suggested it was book 1 Endor the Wizard. But title page and book I believe is actually book 3 Endor the Final Chapter. So I was expecting a different story so was lost for a bit. I would recommend reading the earlier books first I believe. Once I figured out what the story was about made a lot more sense. Because I looked at discription of Endor the Wizard and reviews and it was not matching.
I was given the ebook to read by Netgalley. Dont know where the mistake was but it is ARC copy not the ones for sale.
This can stand alone but probably better to read all three books in the correct order.
This book is about preparing for war and the war itself. The characters are all so different. Endor is a old wizard he travels with a owl and a mouse as friends and companions. Erg is another wizard on the heroes side. Their is also dragons,gnomes,elves,pirates, evil wizards and people having freedoms for the first time.
With the wars there are a lot of deaths on both sides. I really did not connect with the characters and so did not feel sad when some of the heroes died.(probably would have if I had read first two books) I liked how the heroes did not let the people caught in the middle starve. They worked out a way to give them food but not enough to feed and strengthen the other army.
There were a lot of life lessons taught in the story. Gundermire used mice to experiment on but the heroes protected all life and treated the mice well on their side. They used the older wiser to be judges and set up courts for the law breakers.
The heroes used their brains to beat the bigger armies.
I would think this was aimed at middle school age and above. Probably to target boys.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review when finshed by Netgalley.
