Rise of the Ranger (Echoes of Fate: Book 1)

Rise of the Ranger (Echoes of Fate: Book 1) - Philip C. Quaintrell I struggled with this book through the first two-thirds, then it picked up in the last third, hence the fact it took over a week to finish.
The story is fairly basic stuff, none of the characters particularly endeared themselves to me.

Could do with a bit of proof reading. "Drawer" became "draw", "taut" became "taught", and worst of all the author uses "of" instead of "have" in a few places. (Just one of those things that really grates with me).

This is the first book of a series, but I won't be going along for the rest of the journey.
