Review of The Hunger - A High Fantasy

I have to be completely honest when I say that high fantasy is not typically the reading genre I go for. I tend to like autobiographies, romances, real-life stories etc. I was presented the opportunity to review a new book titled The Hunger, by author Michael D. Young and thought I'd give it a shot.

What I was to review was an advanced reader copy that had not been through final editing so I was instructed to review based on content only, and not grammar, spelling etc. I found that the book ad story line did keep my attention more so than I thought it would. I'm not usually one for stories with giant monsters with swinging blades for arms attacking the main character, but for some reason I found myself continuing to read on.

While it was generally an easy read, I did find it a little hard to follow with the unusual names and found the plot a little confusing at times. Having said that, I can definitely see how, if one is into the high fantasy stories, this would probably be right up your alley.
