The Red Sword

The Red Sword - Michael  Wallace 3.5 Stars - this is a decent start to a trilogy.
This book is mostly setting the scene and world building, introducing the main characters.
There was quite a lot going on, mainly focussing on the four main wizards apprentice characters and their strengths and weaknesses.

Don't let "wizards apprentice" put you off - this isn't some YA teen wizarding adventure. One of the apprentices is 30 years old and may still have a while to go, and the others are similar ages.

Will be interesting to see where this story goes.
